lyrics

got no time for the corner
boys, down in the street
makin’ all that noise, don’t
want no whores on eighth
avenue, cause tonight i’m
gonna be with you.

cause tonight i’m gonna
take that ride, across the
river to the jersey side, take
my baby to the carnival,
and i’ll take you on all the
rides, sing sha la la Ia Ia Ia
sha la la Ia.

down the shore every-
thing’s alright, you with
your baby on a saturday
night, don’t you know that
all my dreams come true,
when i’m walkin’ down the
street with you, sing sha Ia
la Ia la Ia sha la la la.

you know she thrills me
with all her charms, when
i’m wrapped up in my
baby’s arms, my little an-
gel gives me everything, i
know someday that she’ll
wear my ring.

so don’t bother me cause
i got no time, i’m on my
way to see that girl of mine,
nothin’ else matters in this
whole wide world, when
you’re in love with a jersey
girl, sing sha la la la Ia Ia la.

and i call your name, i
can’t sleep at night, sha la
Ia la Ia Ia Ia.
