4th Of July, Asbury Park (Sandy) (Springsteen Bruce)

Sandy, the fireworks are hailin' over Little Eden tonight Forcin' a light into all those stony faces left stranded on this warm July Down in town the circuit's full of switchblade lovers so fast, so shiny, so sharp As the wizards play down on Pinball Way on the boardwalk way past dark And the boys from the casino dance with their shirts open like Latin lovers on the shore Chasin' all them silly New York virgins by the score And Sandy, the aurora is risin' behind us This pier lights our carnival life forever Oh, love me tonight for I may never see you again Hey Sandy girl Now, now baby Now the greasers, oh they tramp the streets or get busted for sleeping on the beach all night Them boys in their high heels, ah Sandy their skins are so white And me I just got tired of hangin' in them dusty arcades bangin' them pleasure machines Chasin' the factory girls underneath the boardwalk where they all promise to unsnap their jeans And you know that tilt-a-whirl down on the south beach drag I got on it last night and my shirt got caught And they kept me spinnin', didn't think I'd ever get off Oh Sandy, the aurora is risin' behind us This pier lights our carnival life on the water Runnin' laughing beneath the boardwalk, oh with the boss' daughter I remember Sandy girl My my my my baby Sandy, that waitress I was seeing lost her desire for me I spoke with her last night, she said she won't set herself on fire for me anymore She worked that joint under the boardwalk She was always the girl you saw bopping down the beach with the radio The kids say last night she was just like a star in one of 'em cheap little seaside bars And I saw her parked with lover boy out on the Kokomo Dj'hear the cops finally busted Madame Marie for tellin' fortunes better than they do For me this boardwalk life's through baby You ought to quit this scene too Sandy the aurora's rising behind us This pier lights our carnival life forever Oh, love me tonight, and I promise I'll love you forever Oh, I mean it sandy girl My my my my my my baby Yeah, I promise Sandy girl Shalalala my baby
