The Nicest Kids in Town is a song originally from the Broadway adaptation of Hairspray. It is sung by New Directions in For Your Entertainment. It is performed at an assembly to encourage other students to audition for Glee Club.

It features the six core members of New Directions, Miles, Nicole, Kevin, Bella, Honey, and Jaxon.


Jaxon (spoken):
Hey there teenage Lima, Ohio
Don't change that channel cuz it's time for the New Directions show!
Brought to you by Mr. Will Schuester!

Oh, every afternoon when the clock strikes four
A crazy bunch of kids crash through that door, yeah

Well they throw off their coats and leave the squares behind
And then they shake it, shake it, shake it like they're losing their minds
You'll never see them frown cuz they're the nicest kids in town

So every afternoon you turn your T.V. on
And we know you turn the sound up when your parents are gone, yeah

And 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

So every afternoon drop everything
Who needs to read and write when you can dance and sing?

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.

Jaxon (spoken):
Roll call!

Miles (spoken):

Nicole (spoken):

Kevin (spoken):

Bella (spoken):

Honey (spoken):

Jaxon (spoken):
And I'm Jaxon!

So, if every night you're shaking as you lie in bed
And the bass and drums are pounding in your head

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

Nicest kids in... kids in town!
