The Nicest Kids In Town Lyrics

    Hey there, Teenage Baltimore!
    Don't change that channel!
    'Cause it's time for the Corny
    Collins Show! Brought to you by
    Ultra Clutch Hairspray!

    Ev'ry afternoon
    When the clock strikes four
    bop-bee-ba, ba-ba-ba-ba, bee-ba

    A crazy bunch of kids
    Crash through that door
    bop-bee-ba, ba-ba-ba-ba, bee-ba

    They throw off their coats
    And leave the squares behind
    And then they shake it, shake it, shake it
    Like they're losing their mind
    You'll never see them frown
    'Cause they're the nicest kids in town

    Every afternoon
    You turn your T.V. on
    na, na, na, na, na, na-na-na-na

    And we know you turn the sound up
    When your parents are gone, yeah
    na, na, na, na, na, na-na-na-na

    And then you twist and shout
    For your favorite star
    And once you've practiced every step
    That's in your repertoire
    You better come on down
    And meet the nicest kids in town

    Nice white kids
    Who like to lead the way
    And once a month
    We have our "negro day!"
    And i'm the man who keeps it spinnin' round
    Mr. Corny Collins
    With the latest, greatest Baltimore sound!!

    So every afternoon
    Drop everything
    bop-bee-ba, ba-ba-ba-ba, bee-ba

    Who needs to read and write
    When you can dance and sing?
    bop-bee-ba, ba-ba-ba-ba, bee-ba

    Forget about your algebra
    And calculus
    You can always do your homework
    On the morning bus
    Can't tell a verb from a noun
    They're the nicest kids in town

    Roll Call!!

    I'm Amber!
    Lou Ann!
    And I'm...LINK!
    All of the girls scream

    So, if every night you're shaking
    As you lie in bed
    mony-mony, ooh, mony-mony

    And the bass and drums
    Are pounding in your head
    (mony-mony, ooh, mony-mony)
    Who cares about sleep
    When you can snooze in

    They'll never get to college
    But they sure look cool
    Don't need a cap and a gown
    'Cause they're the nicest
    Kids in town

    They're the nicest. Nicest
    They're the nicest, nicest
    They're the sugar 'n' spicest,
    The nicest kids in...
    Kids in town!
