"The Boys Are Back in Town" is a single from Irish hard rock band Thin Lizzy. According to the The Boys Are Back In Town Songfacts, the song was inspired by Thin Lizzy's fans. The group wrote it after noticing that their shows were full of working-class guys looking to get out and have some fun. Their fans also had a tendency to drink heavily. The song came out in 1976 on their album Jailbreak. It was honoured with the 499th position among Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. Rolling Stone praised lead singer Phil Lynott's "Gaelic soul" and called the "twin-guitar lead by Scott Gorham and Brian Robertson" used "crucial to the song's success". The song is played at most Irish Rugby matches. In March 2005, Q magazine placed "The Boys Are Back in Town" at number 38 in its list of the 100 Greatest Guitar Tracks.

The Boys Are Back in Town - Thin Lizzy

Guess who just got back today?
Those wild Eyed bvoys that've been away
Haven't changed, Haven't much to say
But man I still think them cats are crazy
They were askin' if you were around
How you was where you could be found
Told 'em you were livin' downtown
Driving all the old men crazy

The boys are back in town, the boys are back in town
The boys are back in town, the boys are back in town
The boys are back in town, the boys are back in town
The boys are back in town, the boys are back in town

You know that chick that used to dance a lot?
Every night she be on the floor shakin' what She got
Man I tell ya she was cool she was red hot
I mean she was steamin'

And that time over at Johnny's place
Well this chick got up and she slapped Johnny's face
Man, we just fell about the place
If that chick don't wanna know forget her

The boys are back in town, the boys are back in town
I said the boys are back in town, the boys are back in town
The boys are back in town, the boys are back in town
The boys are back in town, the boys are back in town

Spread the word around
Guess who's back in town
You spread the word around

Friday night they'll be dressed to kill
Down at Dino's Bar & Grill
The drink will flow and blood will spill
And if the boys wanna fight, you'd better let 'em

The Jukebox in the corner blasting out my favorite song
The nights are gettin' warmer it wont be long
Wont be long till summer till summer comes
Now that the boys are here again

The boys are back in town, the boys are back in town
The boys are back in town, the boys are back in town
The boys are back in town, the boys are back in town
(spread the word around)

The boys are back in town, the boys are back in town
(The boys are back, The boys are back)

The boys are back in town again
Been hangin' down at Dino's
The boys are back in town again
