I got no time for the corner boys
Down in the street makin' all that noise
All the girls out on the avenue
'Cause tonight I wanna be with you

Tonight Im gonna take that ride
Across the river to the Jersey side
Take my baby to the carnival
And Ill take her on all the rides

'Cause down the shore everythings alright
You and your baby on a Saturday night
And you know all my dreams come true
When Im walking down the street with you

Sing sha la la la la la la
Sha la la la la la la la la
Sha la la la la la la
Sha la la la, well, Im in love with a Jersey girl

Sha la la la la la la
Sha la la la la la la la la
Sha la la la la la la
Sha la la la

You know she thrills me with all her charms
When Im wrapped up in my babys arms
My little girl gives me everything
I know someday that shell wear my ring

So dont bother me man, I aint got no time
Im on my way to see that girl of mine
'Cause nothing matters in this whole wide world
When youre in love with a Jersey girl

Sha la la la la la la
Sha la la la la la la la la
Sha la la la la la la
Sha la la la, Im in love with a Jersey girl

Sha la la la la la la
Sha la la la la la la la la
Sha la la la la la la
Sha la la la

I see you on the street and you look so tired
Girl, I know that job you got leaves you so uninspired
When I come by to take you out to eat
Youre lyin all dressed up on the bed, baby, fast asleep

Go in the bathroom, put your makeup on
Were gonna take that little brat of yours
And drop her off at your moms
I know a place where the dancings free
Now baby, wont you come with me

'Cause down the shore everythings alright
You and your baby on a Saturday night
Nothing matters in this whole wide world, now girl, now, now
When youre in love with a Jersey girl

Sha la la la la la la
Sha la la la la la la la la
Sha la la la la la la
Sha la la la Im in love with a Jersey girl

Sha la la la la la la
Sha la la la la la la la la
Sha la la la la la la
Sha la la la
