The trouble boys came in
I guessed they'd been out fightin' and ravin'
It wasn't long before they moved in and picked up
The girls we brought to the dance at the night spot

It closed at ten so I had to move fast
To get my baby back from the trouble boys

Twenty five guys from the east side of the city
Kings of hell raising in the neighborhood
Well, one of them walked up and started dancin' with my girl
Who was cryin' 'cause I didn't stop him

All I could say to my baby was
"Honey, this man is bigger than the both of us"

He's a trouble boy and there's trouble boys all around me
No one likes gettin' sand kicked in their face
I don't know anyone who'll stand face to face
With the trouble boys, yeah, the trouble boys

Well, I thought to myself it's time to make my move
I breathed my last sigh and I started to groove with my baby
Who was still dancin' with the other guy
By the look in her eye I was a martyr

She knew I was dead
'Cause no one cuts in on the trouble boy

Yeah, the trouble boys and the trouble boys all around me
No one likes gettin' sand kicked in their face
I don't know anyone who'll stand face to face
With the trouble boys, yeah, the trouble boys

Twenty five gorillas all around me
I was shakin' like a leaf on a autumn tree
The leader came up and he grabbed my hand
And he shook it like a brother, didn't crush it after all

He said, “Good shot buddy, you're the only guy
Who's stood up to a trouble boy”

Yeah, the trouble boy and the trouble boys all around me
No one likes gettin' sand kicked in their face
I don't know anyone who'll stand face to face
With the trouble boys, yeah, the trouble boys

No one likes gettin' sand kicked in their face
But I know someone who can stand face to face
With the trouble boys, yeah, the trouble boys

No one likes gettin' sand kicked in their face
But I know somebody who can stand face to face
With the trouble boys, yeah, the trouble boys

No one likes gettin' sand kicked in their face
But I know somebody
