Guess who just got back today
Them wild eyed boys that had been away.
Haven't changed, hadn't much to say
But, man, I still think them cats are crazy.

They were asking if you were around,
How you was, where you could be found.
I told them you were living downtown.
Driving all the old men crazy.

The boys are back in town, the boys are back in town
I said the boys are back in town. The boys are back in town
The boys are back in town, the boys are back in town
The boys are back in town, the boys are back in town.



You know that chick that used to dance a lot
Ev'ry night she'd be on the floor shakin' what she'd got.
Man, when I tell you she was cool, she was red hot!
I mean she was steaming.

And at that time over at Johnny's place,
Well, this chick got up and she slapped Johnny's face.
Man! We just fell about the place.
If that chick don't wanna know, forget her!

The boys are back in town, the boys are back in town
I said the boys are back in town. The boys are back in town
The boys are back in town, the boys are back in town
The boys are back in town, the boys are back in town.




Spread the word around, Guess who's back in town.

Just spread the word around.

Friday night they'll be dressed to kill
Down at Dino's bar and grill
The drink will flow and the blood will spill
And if the boys wanna fight you better let 'em.

That jukebox in the corner blasting out my fav'rite song.
The nights are getting warmer, it won't be long,
Won't be long till summer comes
Now that the boys are here again.

The boys are back in town, the boys are back in town
I said the boys are back in town. The boys are back in town
The boys are back in town, the boys are back in town
The boys are back in town, the boys are back in town.

The boys are back in town, the boys are back in town
I said the boys are back in town. The boys are back in town
The boys are back in town, the boys are back in town
The boys are back in town, the boys are back in town.
