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,

Down the shore everything's alright,
you with your baby on a saturday night,
don't you know all my dreams come true,
when i'm walkin', down the street with you

Sing sha la la la la la
sha la la la la la la la
sha la la la la la la la
sha la la la I'm in love with a Jersey Girl

Sing sha la la la la la 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 angel gives me everything,
i know someday that she'll wear my ring.

So don't bother me cause i got no time,
Am 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 la la
sha la la la la la la la
sha la la la la la la la
sha la la la I'm in love with a Jersey Girl

Sing sha la la la la la sha la la la.

And I call your name
I can't sleep at night,
