Fonzy type lyric for the old farts out there, including myself.  :)

"The Neighbor Hood"
(©2006 BobbyJoe)

White t-shirt, tight blue jeans
Pack o' Luckies rolled up in his sleeve
Snake tattoo says he's up to no good
Man, there goes the neighbor hood

He's James Dean cool with slicked back hair
Hot women waitin' for him everywhere
I'd be just like him, if I only could
Man, there goes the neighbor hood

Chorus:
Man, there goes the guy all the guys would love to be
He's too cool for school and any fool can see
Katy did and Donna might and Holly prob'ly would
Man, there goes the neighbor hood

Every weekend he's losin' his brains
Rockin' 'em out down on Lover's Lane
He loves bad girls 'cause they make him feel good
Man, there goes the neighbor hood

Chorus:
Man, there goes the guy all the guys would love to be
He's too cool for school and any fool can see
Katy did and Donna might and Holly prob'ly would
Man, there goes the neighbor hood

Bridge:
Twenty years later with his name on his shirt
He's the bowling team star in the league at work
Got a wife and two kids and a house in the woods
Man, there goes the neighbor hood

Chorus:
Man, there goes the guy all the guys would love to be
He's too cool for school and any fool can see
Katy did and Donna might and Holly prob'ly would
Man, there goes the neighbor hood

Hey Bobby Joe,

I think you must have written this one for my older brother.  He was definitely that guy in 1960's Northeast Reno. Another good un.

Thanks, Jeff.  :)  I guess I gave away my "old fart" status on this one.  :D
