The Kinks - Dedicated follower of fashion
Tekst en muziek: Ray Davies
(1966)






They seek him here, they seek him there
His clothes are loud, but never square
It will make or break him, so he’s got to buy the best
’Cause he’s a dedicated follower of fashion



And when he does his little rounds
’Round the boutiques of London Town
Eagerly pursuing all the latest fads and trends
’Cause he’s a dedicated follower of fashion



Oh yes, he is
Oh yes, he is
Oh yes, he is
Oh yes, he is
He thinks he is a flower to be looked at
And when he pulls his frilly nylon panties right up tight
He feels a dedicated follower of fashion



Oh yes, he is
Oh yes, he is
Oh yes, he is
Oh yes, he is
There’s one thing that he loves and that is flattery
One week he’s in polka-dots, the next week he’s in stripes
’Cause he’s a dedicated follower of fashion



They seek him here, they seek him there
In Regent Street and Leicester Square
Everywhere the Carnabetian army marches on
Each one an dedicated follower of fashion



Oh yes, he is
Oh yes, he is
Oh yes, he is
Oh yes, he is
His world is built ’round discoteques and parties
This pleasure-seeking individual always looks his best
’Cause he’s a dedicated follower of fashion



Oh yes, he is
Oh yes, he is
Oh yes, he is
Oh yes, he is
He flits from shop to shop just like a butterfly
In matters of the cloth he is as fickle as can be
’Cause he’s a dedicated follower of fashion
He’s a dedicated follower of fashion
He’s a dedicated follower of fashion
