The lyrics, in full: "I'm writing you this letter from aboard a DC-8 / heading into Angel Town, I hope it ain't too late / It rained in New York City / Mr. Rock 'n' Roll wouldn't play / The crowd was mad & we were had / now we're chasin' the sun back to L.A. / Have breakfast w/ me mamma / hope they'll let us in / got a leather jacket of— / you know that it is a sin—Gunga Din!" In fine condition.
