Lyrics

Troy:
Take it back to the place
Where you know it all began
Chad:
We could be anything we wanna be
Troy:
You can tell by the noise
That the boys are back again
Chad:
Together making history

Troy & Chad:
It's time to show how (Troy: to be a superhero)
Just like a showdown (Chad: Will Smith and Bobby De Niro)
We're the best, no doubt (Troy: doing it like we used to do)
This is our time (Troy: and I'm telling you) all

The boys are back, the boys are back
The boys are back, gonna do it again
Gonna wake up the neighborhood
The boys are back, the boys are back (Chad: yeah)
Climbing up the walls anytime we want
The word is out, the boys are back

The boys are back, back to save the day
The boys are back, oh yeah

Troy:
Keep coming with the right
Win the fight every single time
Chad:
Undefeated here in our house, yeah
Troy & Chad:
We can rock, we can shock
Anytime we like
Chad:
And tonight we're going all out

Troy & Chad:
It's time to show how (Troy: to be a superhero)
Just like a showdown (Chad: keep the pedal to the metal)
We're the best, no doubt (Troy: doing it like we used to do)
This is our time and (Chad: I'm telling you all)
Troy: Lookout

Troy & Chad:
The boys are back, the boys are back
The boys are back, gonna do it again
Gonna wake up the neighborhood
The boys are back, the boys are back
Climbing up the walls anytime we want
The word is out, the boys are back

Troy:
Here to change the world
Troy & Chad:
To solve the mystery, fight the battle, save the girl
No one can stop us now
We're the ones that make the rules, oh

The boys are back
Oh yeah

The boys are back, the boys are back
The boys are back, gonna do it again
Gonna wake up the neighborhood
The boys are back, the boys are back
Climbing up the walls anytime we want
Troy: No need to worry 'cause

Troy & Chad:
The boys are back, the boys are back
The boys are back, gonna do it again
Chad: And we make it look good
Troy & Chad:
The boys are back, the boys are back
Tearing down the walls, anytime we want
I'm sure that you know by now
The boys are back
