Dear hero imprisoned
With all the new crimes that you are perfecting
Well I can't help quoting you
Because everything that you said rings true

And now in my cell
(Well, I followed you)
And here's a list of who I slew
Reggie Kray - do you know my name?
Well, say you don't
Please say you do, whoa-oh

I am the last of the famous international playboys
The last of the famous international playboys

And now in my cell
(Well, I loved you)
Every man with a job to do
Ronnie Kray - do you know my face?
Oh, don't say you don't
Please say you do, whoa-oh

I am the last of the famous international playboys
The last of the famous international playboys

In our lifetime those who kill
The newsworld hands them stardom,
And these are the ways on which I was raised
These are the ways on which I was raised

But I never wanted to kill
I'm not naturally evil
Such things I do
Just to make myself more attractive to you
Have I failed? 

No, no, yeah, no, yeah
No, no, yeah, no, yeah

I am the last of the famous international playboys
The last of the famous international playboys
