"New In Town" as written by Gregory Allen Kurstin and Victoria Hesketh....
Heard you're new in town, want someone to show you 'round
Well, no one knows this place just quite like me
Well, I don't hang with the crowd where I go we're dressing down
I'll take you where the music plays for free

So don't rely on people you meet
'Cause no one is safe in these streets

I'm gonna take you out tonight
I'm gonna make you feel alright
I don't have a lot of money but we'll be fine
No I don't have a penny but I'll show you a good time

I'm gonna take you out tonight
I'm gonna make you feel alright
I don't have a lot of money but we'll be fine
No I don't have a penny but I'll show you a real good time

So what do you think so far? Is it all you're hoping for?
Does it live up to your every dream?
Or do we disappoint? Well you made the choice
When you wake up can you hear the scream?

So don't rely on people you meet
'Cause no one is safe in these streets

I'm gonna take you out tonight
I'm gonna make you feel alright
I don't have a lot of money but we'll be fine
No I don't have a penny but I'll show you a good time

I'm gonna take you out tonight
I'm gonna make you feel alright
I don't have a lot of money but we'll be fine
No I don't have a penny but I'll show you a real good time

'Cause I know how it feels to be alone
When strangers only make you feel the cold
You never ever felt so far from home
You never felt so far from home

I'm gonna take you out tonight
I'm gonna make you feel alright
I don't have a lot of money but we'll be fine
No I don't have a penny but I'll show you a good time

I'm gonna take you out tonight
I'm gonna make you feel alright
I don't have a lot of money but we'll be fine
No I don't have a penny but I'll show you a real good time

I'm gonna take you out tonight
I'm gonna make you feel alright
I don't have a lot of money but we'll be fine
No I don't have a penny but I'll show you a good time

I'm gonna take you out tonight
I'm gonna make you feel alright
I don't have a lot of money but we'll be fine
No I don't have a penny but I'll show you a real good time

    General CommentAccording to good ol' Wikipedia, this song was 'inspired by the "seedy side of life" in Los Angeles and the strange individuals Little Boots met while recording Hands.'

    Song MeaningFirst off, I just love this song!

    Anyway, to me there are a couple of meanings to this song:

    First meaning - that the main person is a drug pusher and is trying to get new people into drugs. The "So don't rely on people you meet, 'Cause no-one is safe in these streets" can mean that you shouldn't trust anyone 'cause they can rob you and what-not.

    Second meaning - that you don't have to be rich to have fun, but if you do go the "free" route that you can head into some trouble.

    So that is what the song meaning(s) is to me.

    General CommentThis song is incredibly catchy. This song is probably showing someone who is new in town where all the hip but free places are. I imagine the person to be someone young like in early 20s who is broke and trying to have a good time. Some people might think the song is about sex because people like to think that having a good time has to do with that. I really like the remix as well by Fred Falke.

    General CommentIt's about a guy who's found yet another gullible girl ("new in town"...doesn't know the ropes) who he plans to show around and have sex with. A simple melody. Played over and over again it's rather quite catchy, kind of like the clap. He's a broke son of a bitch but he knows how to show the ladies (girls) a good time. Ahhh....that will last long :)
