LyricsEdit

Guess who just got back today
Them wild-eyed boys that had been away
Hadn't changed, hadn't much to say
I still think those guys are great

They were asking if you'd been around
How you was, where you could be found
Told them you were living downtown
Driving all the old men crazy

The boys are back in town
(boys are back in town)
The boys are back in town

You remember that chick that used to dance a lot
Every night she'd be on the floor shaking what she'd got
Man, when I tell you she was cool, she was red hot
I mean she was steamin'

Then that time over at Johnny's place
This chick, she 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

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

Friday night they'll be dressed to kill
Down at Dino's Bar and Grill
The drink will flow and blood will spill
And if the boys want to fight, you'd better let them

That jukebox over in the corner blasting out my favorite song
The nights are getting warmer and 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
(boys are back in town)
I said the boys are back in town
The boys are back in town
(the boys are back, boys are back, boys are back)
The boys are back in town, yeah
