Story Behind the Song

Obsession with a legend

Lyrics

James Dean



He struts around the town acting like he's James Dean
At any glitzy opening he's always seen
His impersonation has its flaws
Like a Cockney Rebel without a cause
He struts around the town coz he thinks he's James Dean

He walks around the town looking like he's James Dean
One of the greatest actors there's ever been
He drives around in a keyed Porsche Spyder
His favourite tipple is a pint of cider
He struts around the town coz he thinks he's James Dean
His hero was the king of the silver screen

Chorus

But he's still wearing cowboy boots and a hat
And he's still living in his bedsit flat

Verse

He struts around the town coz he thinks he's James Dean
On "East Of Eden" and "Giant" he's real keen
His impersonation has its flaws
Like a Cockney Rebel without a cause
He struts around the town coz he thinks he's James Dean

His hero was the king of the silver screen
Yeh, he thinks he's James Dean
Coz he thinks he's James Dean
Yeah he's James Dean
