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!

Every 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!
Brad
Tammy, Fender, Brenda
Sketch, Shelley, IQ, Lou Ann
Joey, Mickey, Vicki
Becky, Bix, Jesse, Darla, Paulie
Noreen, Doreen
And I'm...LINK!

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 school?
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 in spicest,
The nicest kids in...
Kids in town!
