This is my take on the lovely 'Jersey Girl' originally written and performed by Tom Waits and also covered by Bruce Springsteen who added the 3rd verse in this version. (as far as I know that is true, perhaps someone can confirm).

I recorded this version without a video cam and feature instead photographs, mainly relating to the Jersey location.

The lyrics used in my version are as follows:-

Got no time for the cornerboys
Down on the street makin' all that noise
Don't want no whores on eighth avenue
'cause tonight I'm gonna be with you
tonight I'm gonna take that ride
across the river to the Jersey side
Take my baby to the carnival
and I'll take her on all the rides
Down the shore everything's allright
You with your baby on a Saturday night
Don't you know all my dreams come true
When I'm walkin' down the streets with you

sing shala lala lalaa
Shala lala la la laa
Shala lala lalaa laa
Shala laa

You know she thrills me with all her charms
When I'm wrapped up in my baby's arms
My little angel gives me everything
I know someday she'll wear my ring
So don't bother me 'cause I've got no time
I'm on my way to see that girl of mine
nothing matters in this whole wide world
when you're in love with a Jersey girl


I see you on the street and you look so tired
I know that job you got leaves you so uninspired
When i come by to take you out to eat
You're lyin' all dressed up baby fast a - sleep
Go in the bathroom and put your makeup on
We're gonna take that brat of yours and drop her off at your mom's
I know a place where the dancing's free
Now baby won't you come with me
`cause down the shore everything's all right
You and your baby on a saturday night
Nothing matters in this whole wide world
when you're in love with a Jersey girl

and I call your name
I can't sleep at night

Sing Shala la la
