The Kid Is Hot Tonight

Album: Loverboy (1980)
Charted: 55
  • We just heard of a brand new way
    And we hope it's here to stay
    We'll have to wait and see
    If it's half of what they say

    We heard he opened up a brand new door
    Well you know that's what I'm lookin' for
    We'll have to wait and see
    If it makes you shout for more

    How do you like him so far?
    How do you like his show?
    How do you like the way he rocks and the way he rolls?

    How do you like his image?
    How do you like his style?
    How do you like the way he looks and the way he smiles?

    (Chorus):
    The Kid is hot tonight
    Whoa so hot tonight
    But where will he be tomorrow?

    The kid, is hot tonight
    Whoa so hot tonight
    But where will he be tomorrow

    And we just heard of a brand new fad
    And they say it's gonna drive you mad
    We'll have to wait and see
    If it's the best you ever had

    And we just heard of a brand new wave
    We heard it's headin' for an early grave
    We'll have to wait and see if there's anything we can save

    (repeat chorus)

    The kid is hot tonight
    Whoa so hot tonight
    But where will he be tomorrow
    The kid is hot tonight
    Whoa so hot tonight
    But where will he be, where will he be?
    The kid is hot tonight
    Whoa so hot tonight
    But where will he be tomorrow?
    The kid is hot tonight, whoa

  • Nancy from Baltimore, Mdit is one of my favorites by Loverboy. It's one of those songs you can dance to and express yourself.
  • Shannon from Keller, TxI've always thought this song was about Elvis. - Shannon, Keller, TX
