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! Oh 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, yeah (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 Oh, every afternoon You turn the TV 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 (ooh) 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! I.Q.! Lou Ann! 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 Who needs a cap and a gown When you'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!
