“New Jersey, New Jersey”

New Jersey, New Jersey
You don’t want to stay
You don’t want to go there
But you can’t get away

A girl from New Jersey
Once begged me to stay
I knew I had everything
But I Piscataway

I was searching my whole life
For someone to show me the right way
In Hoboken, heartbroken,
I thought that I’d never know joy;

But the wonderful moves of her Mahwah
Would rub me the Rahway
She got caught with Secaucus
Metuchen her Perth Amboy

New Jersey, New Jersey
You don’t want to stay
You don’t want to go there
But you can’t get away

New Jersey, New Jersey
It really ain’t bad
It only sounds dirty
They only seem mad

We went all night, out in Sea Bright
The bed was rockin’, in Weehauken
My mind was blown, out in Bayonne
By her Kama Sutra pose

But then I went and ditched her
at the Molly Pitcher
She said that she’d forgive me
in Atlantic City
And there was no one but me
all the way to Nutley
‘Cause that’s the way it goes

A New Jersey vixen
Could do it just right;
I Woodbridge her Short Hills
With my Long Branch at night

New Jersey, New Jersey
You don’t want to stay
You don’t want to go there
But you can’t get away

Oh, I bought a ring for Elizabeth,
Thinking she’d love it;
But she left me for Wayne and her
Egg Harbor ain’t coming back;

But I still remember
The way that she brought me to Summit
She would Wyckoff my Clinton while
Franklin’ my Hackensack

I took off her V-neck, when we were in Teaneck
We went all the way, out in Cape May
It was a thrill, that night in Cherry Hill
When we did it at the mall

But it all went wrong, in Pohatcong
We had some fights, in Seaside Heights,
She met another guy, in Tenafly
And won’t return my calls.

New Jersey, New Jersey
You don’t want to stay
You don’t want to go there
But you can’t get away

New Jersey, New Jersey
It really ain’t bad
It only sounds dirty
They only seem mad
