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! (Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh)

Oh, rvery 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)

Go and 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
(Ooh, ooh, ooh ooh)

Oh, every afternoon
You turn your TV On, huh
(Na, na, na, na, na, na-na-na-na)

Yeah, we know you turn the sound up
When your parents are gone, yeah
(Na, na, na, na, na, na-na-na-na)

Then you twist and shout
For your favorite star
And when you've practiced every step
That's in your repertoire
You better come on down
And meet the nicest kids in town, woo

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!(Woo)

So every afternoon
Drop everything, woo
(Bop-bee-ba, ba-ba-ba-ba, bee-ba)

Who needs to read and write
When you can dance and sing? Yeah
(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, Nick, Jesse
Carla, Polly, Maureen, Doreen
And I'm Link

So, if every night you're shaking
As you lie in bed
(Pony pony, ooh, pony pony) shake it baby

And the bass and drums
Are pounding in your head
(Pony pony, ooh, pony pony)
Who cares about sleep
When you can snooze in school?

You'll never get to college
But you're sure look cool
Don't need a cap and a gown
When you're the nicest kids in town

Yeah, they're the nicest, nicest
They're the nicest, nicest
They're the sugar 'n spicest
Nicest kids in
Kids in town, woo!
