AMBER, TAMMY & SHELLY
Hey look out for that moving van
Driving down our streets
You better lock up your man
Before he meets
The New Girl in Town

AMBER
Who just came on the scene

AMBER, TAMMY & SHELLY
The New Girl in Town

AMBER
Can't be more than sixteen

AMBER, TAMMY & SHELLY
And she's got a way of makin'
A boy act like a clown
Wo-oo, wo-oo, wo-oo, wo-oo, wo-oo
We don't know what to do
'Bout the new girl in town
The New Girl in Town

SHELLY
Seems to dance on air

AMBER, TAMMY & SHELLY
The New Girl in Town

TAMMY
She's got the coolest hair

AMBER, TAMMY & SHELLY
You better tell the homecoming queen
To hold on to her crown
Wo-oo, wo-oo, wo-oo, wo-oo
Or she's gonna loose it to
The New Girl in Town

SHELLY & TAMMY
She's hip, she's cool

AMBER
I'm gonna get her after school

AMBER, TAMMY & SHELLY
And yet we'd like to be like her
'Cause she's the kitten
That the cats prefer

ladies step aside

DYNAMITES
The New Girl in Town

DYNAMITE #1
Has my guy on a string

DYNAMITES
The New Girl in Town

DYNAMITE #3
Hey look she's wearing his ring

DYNAMITES
I can't stop crying and so
In my own tears I'm gonna drown
Wo-oo, wo-oo, wo-oo, wo-oo

DYNAMITE #1
Cause he wants to rendezvous

DYNAMITES
With the new girl

DYNAMITE #2
We're kinda sad and blue

DYNAMITES
Yes it's true
We'd like to say...
To The New Girl in Town
The New Girl in Town
Wo-oo, wo-oo, wo-oo, wo-oo
From out of the blue girl
This town's in a stew girl
What a hullabloo girl
She ain't just passing through girl
She's sticking like glue girl
To the man I thought I knew girl
Wo-oo, wo-oo, wo-oo, wo-oo
Hey look out for that moving van
Look out, look out, look out, look out
She was...The New Girl in Town

    Well, duh, they're talking about tracy, and even though the dynamites wrote it, they probably knew that amber would end up singing it.
