Guess who just got back today?
Them wild-eyed boys that had been away
Haven't changed, haven't much to say
But man, I still think them cats are crazy

They were asking if you were around
How you was, where you could be found
Told them you were living downtown
Driving all the old men crazy

The boys are back in town
The boys are back in town
I said
The boys are back in town
The boys are back in town
The boys are back in town
The boys are back in town
The boys are back in town
The boys are back in town

You know that chick that used to dance a lot
Every night she'd be on the floor shaking what she'd got
Man when I tell you she was cool, she was red hot
I mean she was steaming

And that time over at Johnny's place
Well this chick got up and she slapped Johnny's face
Man we just fell about the place
If that chick don't want to know, forget her

The boys are back in town
The boys are back in town
I said
The boys are back in town
The boys are back in town
The boys are back in town
The boys are back in town
The boys are back in town
The boys are back in town

Spread the word around
Guess who's back in town

You spread the word around

Friday night they'll be dressed to kill
Down at Dino's bar and grill
The drink will flow and blood will spill
And if the boys want to fight, you'd better let them

That jukebox in the corner blasting out my favorite song
The nights are getting warmer, it won't be long
Won't be long till summer comes
Now that the boys are here again

The boys are back in town
The boys are back in town
The boys are back in town
The boys are back in town
The boys are back in town
The boys are back in town
Spread the word around
The boys are back in town
The boys are back in town
The boy's are back, the boys are back

The boy's are back in town again
Been hangin' down at Dino's
The boy's are back in town again

    這首歌是由愛爾蘭的搖滾團體Thin Lizzy所唱,它是由Phil Lynott所寫的,他自我描述是黑色愛爾蘭的惡棍,他的母親是愛爾蘭人,父親則是巴西的船員。他用蓋爾人的精神來唱這首歌。這首歌是來自他們1976年的專輯《Jailbreak》。這首歌的成功除了他們的貝士手兼主唱的Lynott之外,還有那兩把吉他Scott Gorham 和 Brian Robertson,Lynott在1986年因為藥物問題過世,他在愛爾蘭的形象就像美國的Bruce Springsteen一樣。它常常在愛爾蘭的棷欖球比賽中被拿來演唱。2005年,它被Q雜誌評選為百大吉他錄音的第38名。
