The Libertines - Boys in the Band

The libertines are a British punk rock band formed in London in 1997 and broke up in 2005, due to relationship difficulties between Barât (vocals/lead guitar) and himself that were not related to his drug addiction. The members of The Libertines went on to form new bands with varying degrees of commercial and critical success.
I knew nothing of this band until a year ago, when I hear this song in a movie (I can't remember wich one) and sought the author of this band.
So, listen and enjoy.
 

 Lyrics
You're walking like you never seen the light
You're walking like it every night
But I've never seen you dance and I've never heard you sing
So how can it mean a single thing?
It's all so rudimentary

You're talking like your handy in a fight
You talking like it every night
But I've never seen those flowers in the barrel of a gun
All I've ever seen you do is run
It's all so rudimentary

But tell me baby how does it feel?
I know you like the roll of the limousine wheel

And they all get them out for (They all get them out)
For the boys in the band (Only for the boys in the band)
They twist and they shout for (They twist and they scream and they shout)
For the boys in the band (Only for the boys in the band)

You're walking like you never seen the light
You're walking like it every night
But then I stop to think and I ask myself why
It's one of those things that darling you must try
It's all so rudimentary

Now I'm jealous, I'm jealous of my own
I've no homestead but through these hearts I will roam, yeah

They all get them out for (They all get them out)
For the boys in the band (Only for the boys in the band)
They scream and they shout for (They twist and they scream and they shout)
For the boys in the band (Only for the boys in the band)

But tell me baby how does it feel?
I know you like the roll of the limousine wheel

And they all get them out for (They all get them out)
For the boys in the band (Only for the boys in the band)
They scream and they shout for (They twist and they scream and shout)
For the boys in the band (Only for the boys in the band)

Yes, they all want them out for (They all want them out)
For the boys in the band (Only for the boys in the band)
They scream and they shout for (They twist and they scream and shout)
For the boys in the band (Only for the boys in the band)
