Song Lyrics


Guess who just got back today?
Them wild eyed boys that had been away
Haven't changed, haven'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?
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)

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

And that time over at Johnny's place
Well this chick got up and she slapped Johnny's face
Man we fell about the place
If that chick don't want to 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)

Friday nights 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

The jukebox in the corner blasting out my favorite song
These nights are getting warmer an' it won't be long
Won't be long 'till summer comes

Now 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
The boys are back in town
[Incomprehensible]

Been hangin' down at Dino's
