[Ab5]Guess who just got [Cm7]back today?

[Cm7]They haven't changed, haven't [F7sus]had much to say,
[Bbm7]But man I still think those cats ar[Db/Eb]e crazy.
[Ab5]They were askimg me if [Cm7]you were around,
[Db]How you was, and w[E]here you could be found,
[Cm7]I told them you were living [F7sus]down town,
[Bbm7]Driving all the old [Db/Eb]men crazy.

[Verse 2] 
[Ab5]Remember that chick who used to d[Cm7]ance a lot?
[Db]Every night on the [F7sus]floor she'll be shaking what she got,
[Cm7]Man I tell you she was [F7sus]cool, she was red hot.
[Bbm7]I mean, she was ste[Db/Eb]aming.
[Ab5]That one time over at [Cm7]Jonny's place,
[Db]That chick got up and sl[E]apped Jonny's face,
[Cm7]Man we just fell a[F7sus]bout the place,
[Bbm]And if that girl don't want to know, for[Db]get her.
[Cborus] 
[Bridge] 
[Gb] [Db] Y[Cm7]ou spread the word a[F7sus]round.
[Bm7]Guess whose back in [Db]town...[F7sus]oh...
[Verse 3] 
[Ab5]Friday night they'll be d[Cm7]ressed to kill,
[Db]Down at Tino's [F7sus]bar and grill,
[Cm7]The drinks will flow and the [Fsus7]blood will spill,
[Bbm7]And if those boys want to fight, [Db/Eb]you'd better let 'em.
[Ab5]The jutebox in the corner [Cm7]blasting out my favorite song,
[Db]The nights are getting wa[E]rmer and it won't be long,
[Cm7]It won't belong till [F7sus]summer comes,
[Bbm7]Now that those boys are [Db/Eb]here again.
