Hairspray LIVE! - The Nicest Kids in Town Lyrics

"The Nicest Kids in Town" is a song from Hairspray LIVE! performed by Derek Hough (Corny) and Council Members.

CORNY: (Spoken)
Hey there, teenage Baltimore! Don't change that dial,
'Cause it's time for The Corny Collins Show, brought to you by Ultra Clutch Hairspray!
Hair so strong, it even holds up in a NASA wind tunnel!

CORNY (COUNCIL MEMBERS):
Oh, every afternoon when the clock strikes four
(Bop bee bop, ba ba ba ba ba, bee bop)
A crazy bunch of kids crash through that door, yeah
(Bop bee bop, ba ba ba ba ba, bee bop)

CORNY & ALL:
They 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

CORNY (COUNCIL MEMBERS):
Oh, every afternoon you turn your TV on
(Na, na na na na, na na na na)
And we know you turn the sound up when your parents are gone, yeah
(Na, na na na na, na na na na)

CORNY & ALL:
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

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 spinning round
Mr. Corny Collins with the latest, greatest Baltimore sound

CORNY (COUNCIL MEMBERS):
So every afternoon drop everything
(Bop bee bop, ba ba ba ba ba, bee bop)
Who needs to read and write when you can dance and sing?
(Bop bee bop, ba ba ba ba ba, bee bop)

CORNY & ALL:
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

CORNY (Spoken):
R-r-r-roll call!

COUNCIL MEMBERS:
I'm Amber! Brad!
Tammy! Fender! Brenda! Sketch!
Shelly! IQ! Lou Ann! Kooks! Belle! Corey! John!
And I'm... Link!

CORNY (COUNCIL MEMBERS):
So, if every night you're shaking as you lie in bed
(Mony mony, ooh, mony mony)
And the bass and drums are pounding in your head
(Mony mony, ooh, mony mony)

CORNY & ALL:
Who cares about sleep when you can snooze in school?
They'll never get to college, but they'll sure look cool
Don't need a cap or a gown
When you're the nicest kids in town

They're the nicest, nicest
They're the nicest, nicest
Well, they're the sugar 'n' spice-est
Nicest kids in...kids in town, woo!
