Jersey Girl Lyrics - Bruce Springsteen

Review The Song (6)

I got no time for the corner boys
Down in the street making all that noise
Or the girls out on the avenue
'cause tonight I wanna 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

'cause down the shore everything's all right
You and your baby on a saturday night
You know all my dreams come true
When I'm walking down the street with you

Sha la la la la la la
Sha la la la la la la la la
Sha la la la la la la
Sha la la la I'm in love with a jersey girl

You know she thrills me with all her charms
When I'm wrapped up in my baby's arms
My little girl gives me everything
I know that some day she'll wear my ring
So don't bother me man I ain't got no time
I'm on my way to see that girl of mine
'cause nothing matters in this whole wide world
When you're in love with a jersey girl

Sha la la la...

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 on the bed baby fast asleep
Go in the bathroom and put your makeup on
We're gonna take that little 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

Best version ever | Reviewer: Mary C | 10/31/13

Bruce Springsteen takes this song and gives it a whole life of its own. The audience reaction on the live version, singing to a home crowd is wonderful.
Love it, love it so much, been listening to it for years and it never fails to please.
Bruce is a grand master, wish this was on his greatest hits album, it would complete a marvellous set.

Memories | Reviewer: Steve | 3/22/13

I went to La Salle University in the late 80's. Goin down the shore was what we did in the summer. This song kills me from start to finish. Tears, memories, perfectly captures those times. Thanks Bruce.


This song inspired me.i heard it on the end of the movie jersey girl and i dont know how but for the past 5 days after that movie iv been play the song all right through.this song is not even about life but when i listen to it i think about my brings peace among me and my life.

Jersey Girl, my Uncle Anthony left me a letter that the lyrics were from him about my me and mom. Never knew the lyrics just went over on Google and can't believe the similarities. Maybe he wasn't b.s.'ing me. Sorry always a rap fan til now. Have a letter for you. Sincerely, Dr.S. Wreiole

Jersey | Reviewer: NY Boy | 9/24/09

I've known some Jersey girls in my day & hearing this song makes me think about them every time. I don't know what album it was on & only heard it once or twice on the radio back in the day. But I knew I had to have it and after some digging, I have the live version off one of the concert albums. It's a top 25 in my iPhone.

What a song! | Reviewer: Dharmacate | 6/23/09

I'm just back from a trip down the shore - Long Branch, Red Bank, Little Silver, Deal, Ocean Grove, Seabright and Asbury Park. While it isn't the place of the 60s and 70s carousels and Madame Marie, it still holds the charm and this song fills me with the memories of how it was . . . Could almost hear it echoing at the Convention Hall and The Stone Pony . . .
