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

Sandy the fireworks are hailin' over Little Eden tonight
Forcin' a light into all those stoney faces left
stranded on this warm July.
Down in the town the circuit's full with 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.
Sandy the aurora is risin' behind us.
This pier lights our carnival life forever.
Love me tonight for I may never see you again Hey Sandy girl, My my baby.
Now the greasers 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' I 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' underneath the boardwalk with the boss's 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 dressed like a star
in one of those cheap little seaside bars and I saw her walk with lover boy out on the kokomo.

Did ya hear the cops finally busted Madam Marie for telling fortunes better than they do.

For me this boardwalk life's through, babe. You ought to quite this scene, too.

Sandy the aurora is risin' behind us.
This pier lights our carnival life forever.
Oh, love me tonight and I promise I'll love you forever?
Oh I need it Sandy girl, my my my my baby.

Yeah I promise Sandy girl...

Sha la la la baby.
