Lyrics


There's talk on the street

It sounds so familiar

Great expectations, everybody's watching you

People you meet

They all seem to know you

Even your old friends treat you like you're something new


Johnny come lately, the new kid in town

Everybody loves you, so don't let them down


You look in her eyes

The music begins to play

Hopeless romantics, here we go again

But after awhile

You're lookin' the other way

It's those restless hearts that never mend


Johnny come lately, the new kid in town

Will she still love you when you're not around?


There's so many things you should have told her

But night after night you're willing to hold her

Just hold her

Tears on your shoulder


There's talk on the street

It's there to remind you

It doesn't really matter which side you're on

You're walking away

And they're talking behind you

They will never forget you 'til somebody new comes along


Where you've been lately? There's a new kid in town

Everybody loves him

Don't they?

Now he's holding her, and you're still around


Oh, my, my

There's a new kid in town

Just another new kid in town


Everybody's talking 'bout the new kid in town

Everybody's walking like the new kid in town


There's a new kid in town

I don't wanna hear it

There's a new kid in town

I don't wanna hear it

There's a new kid in town

There's a new kid in town


There's a new kid in town

(Everybody's talking)

There's a new kid in town

(People started walking)

There's a new kid in town

There's a new kid in town
