Guess who just got back today? Those wild-eyed boys that had been away.
C#m7 F#7sus4 Bm7 E9sus4
Haven't changed, haven't much to say. But man, I still think those 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. [4x]
You know the 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 steaming.
That night 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 want to know, forget her.
Spread the word around.

Guess who's back in town?
C#m7 F#sus4 Em7 F#7sus4
You spread the word around.
Friday night they'll be dressed to kill down at Dino's Bar & Grille.
The drink will flow and blood will spill.
If the boys want to fight, you'd better let them.
That jukebox in the corner blasting out my favorite song.
The nights are getting warmer, it won't be long.
It won't be long 'til summer comes. Now that the boys are here again.
