Particular strain of British youth culture of the 1950s, adopting a look that combined Saville Row elegance with American-influenced street-hood style. The Teddyboy, or Ted, listened to rock 'n' roll music, smoked cigarettes, and generally posed as a tough. There are still a few Teddyboys around, particularly in places such as Germany and Japan.
Long black jacket with a velvet collar
I`m a real cool Ted, I`m a crazy fella
Drainpipe trousers, crepe sole shoes
Ringlet stockings, boppin` the Blues
Are you ready to rock
It`s the Teddyboy Bop
(song lyrics by Foggy Mountain Rockers)
