Got no time for the corner boys
Down in the street makin' all that noise
Don't want no hos on 8th Avenue
'Cause tonight I'm gonna be with you

Tonight I'm gonna take that ride
Cross the river to the Jersey side
Take my baby to the carnival
Well, I'll take you on all the rides

Down the shore, everything's alright
You're with your baby on Saturday night
Don't you know all my dreams come true
When I'm walking down the street with you

Sing, shalalalalalala
Shalalalalalala
Shalalalalalala
When you're in love with a Jersey girl

You know you thrill me with all your charms
When you're wrapped up in your baby's arms
You know you give me everything
I know someday that you'll wear my ring

Down the shore, everything's alright
You're with your baby on Saturday night
You know all my dreams come true
When I'm walking down the street with you

Sing, shalalalalalala
Sing, shalalalalalala
Shalalalalalala
When you're in love with a Jersey girl

I call your name
I can't sleep at night

Sing, shalalalalalala
Sing, shalalalalalala
Sing, shalalalalalala
When you're in love with a Jersey girl

Sing, shalalalalalala
Sing, shalalalalalala
Sing, shalalalalalala
When you're in love with a Jersey girl

Shalalalalalala
Shalalalalalala
Shalalalalalala
