[G]Th[B]ere was this chick who used to dance a lot

[C]I [D]mean she was steaming
[G]Th[B]at night over at Johnny's place
[C]We[E]ll this chick got up and she slapped Johnny's face
[B]Ma[E]n we just fell about the place
[C]If[D] that chick don't want to know, forget her
[G]Th[G]e [A]bo[C]ys are back in town, the boys are back in town
