[Verse 1]

Ab5                Cm7
Guess who just got back today?
Db                          F7sus
Those wild eyed boys who've been away,
Cm7                           F7sus
They haven't changed, haven't had much to say,
Bbm7                               Db/Eb
But man I still think those cats are crazy.
Ab5                    Cm7
They were askimg me if you were around,
Db                E
How you was, and where you could be found,
Cm7                         F7sus
I told them you were living down town,
Bbm7                Db/Eb
Driving all the old men crazy.


[Chorus]

Ab5                                                Bb5 Db5
The boys are back in town. (Boys are back in town)
Ab5
The boys are back in Tow-oo-ow-own,
Bb5          Db5
The Boys are back in town.
Ab5
The Boys are back in town (Boys are back in town)
Bb5                Db5
The Boys are back, The boys are back

[Verse 2]

Ab5                              Cm7
Remember that chick who used to dance a lot?
Db                 F7sus
Every night on the floor she'll be shaking what she got,
Cm7                    F7sus
Man I tell you she was cool, she was red hot.
Bbm7               Db/Eb
I mean, she was steaming.
Ab5                   Cm7
That one time over at Jonny's place,
Db                      E
That chick got up and slapped Jonny's face,
Cm7               F7sus
Man we just fell about the place,
Bbm                                     Db
And if that girl don't want to know, forget her.


[Chorus]

Ab5                                                Bb5 Db5
The boys are back in town. (Boys are back in town)
Ab5
The boys are back in Tow-oo-ow-own,
Bb5          Db5
The Boys are back in town.
Ab5
The Boys are back in town (Boys are back in town)
Bb5                Db5
The Boys are back, The boys are back


[Bridge]
Gb Db Cm7                 F7sus
     You spread the word around.
Bm7                 Db     F7sus
Guess whose back in town...oh...


[Verse 3]

Ab5                      Cm7
Friday night they'll be dressed to kill,
Db             F7sus
Down at Tino's bar and grill,
Cm7                          Fsus7
The drinks will flow and the blood will spill,
Bbm7                             Db/Eb
And if those boys want to fight, you'd better let 'em.
Ab5                       Cm7
The jutebox in the corner blasting out my favorite song,
Db                       E
The nights are getting warmer and it won't be long,
Cm7                  F7sus
It won't belong till summer comes,
Bbm7                    Db/Eb
Now that those boys are here again.


[Chorus]

Ab5                                                Bb5 Db5
The boys are back in town. (Boys are back in town)
Ab5
The boys are back in Tow-oo-ow-own,
Bb5          Db5
The Boys are back in town.
Ab5
The Boys are back in town (Boys are back in town)
Bb5                Db5
The Boys are back, The boys are back
