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
