 Guess who just got back today?
 DbF7sus
 Those wild eyed boys who've been away,
 Cm7F7sus
 They haven't changed, haven't had much to say,
 Bbm7Db/Eb
 But man I still think those cats are crazy.
 Ab5Cm7
 They were askimg me if you were around,
 DbE
 How you was, and where you could be found,
 Cm7F7sus
 I told them you were living down town,
 Bbm7Db/Eb
 Driving all the old men crazy.

 Verse 2
 Ab5Cm7
 Remember that chick who used to dance a lot?
 DbF7sus
 Every night on the floor she'll be shaking what she got,
 Cm7F7sus
 Man I tell you she was cool, she was red hot.
 Bbm7Db/Eb
 I mean, she was steaming.
 Ab5Cm7
 That one time over at Jonny's place,
 DbE
 That chick got up and slapped Jonny's face,
 Cm7F7sus
 Man we just fell about the place,
 BbmDb
 And if that girl don't want to know, forget her.

 Guess whose back in town...oh...

 Verse 3
 Ab5Cm7
 Friday night they'll be dressed to kill,
 DbF7sus
 Down at Tino's bar and grill,
 Cm7Fsus7
 The drinks will flow and the blood will spill,
 Bbm7Db/Eb
 And if those boys want to fight, you'd better let 'em.
 Ab5Cm7
 The jutebox in the corner blasting out my favorite song,
 DbE
 The nights are getting warmer and it won't be long,
 Cm7F7sus
 It won't belong till summer comes,
 Bbm7Db/Eb
 Now that those boys are here again.
