There's talk on the street
It sounds so familiar
Great expectations
Everybody'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
Everybody 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

Oh, oh

Johnny come lately
The new kid in town
Will she still love you
When you're not around?

(Solo)

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
Doesn't really matter
Which side you're on

You're walking away
And they're talking behind you
They will never forget you
Til somebody new comes along

Where you been lately?
There's a new kid in town
Everybody loves him, don't they?

And 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

Oo-hoo
Everybody's talking 'bout the new kid in town
Oo-hoo
Everybody'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, ah, oooh, ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
There's a new kid in town
There's a new kid in town

There's a new kid in town
Everybody's talking
There's a new kid in town
People started walking

There's a new kid in town, mmm hmm hmm
There's a new kid in town
There's a new kid in town...

    I think it is like "you" is the one popular before "johnny" came. obviously the new kid in town while "you" is not around then there came that "johnny"... everything "you" had became johnny's: girls, fame, name, attention. things like that ^__^
