"New Kid in Town" as written by and John Souther Don Henley....
There's talk on the street; it sounds so familiar.
Great expectations, ev'rybody'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.
Ev'rybody 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 a while you're looking 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
that 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 till somebody new comes along.
Where you been lately? There's a new kid in town.
Ev'rybody 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.
Ooh, hoo. Ev'rybody's talking 'bout the new kid in town.
Ooh, hoo. Ev'rybody's walking like the new kid in town.

There's a new kid in town. I don't want to hear it.
There's a new kid in town. I don't want to hear it.
There's a new kid in town. There's a new kid in town.
There's a new kid in town. There's a new kid in town.
There's a new kid in town. There's a new kid in town.
