There's talk on the street, it sounds so familiar
Great expectations, everybody's watching you
The 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 awhile, you're lookin' 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 'til somebody new comes along

Where you been lately, there's a new kid in town
Everybody 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
Ah, just another new kid in town
Ooh, hoo, everybody's talking about the new kid in town
Ooh, 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

There's a new kid in town
There's a new kid in town
There's a new kid in town
