Bruce Springsteen - 4th Of July, Asbury Park

Sandy the fireworks are hailin' over little eden tonight

Forcin' a light into all those stoned-out faces left stranded

On this fourth of july

Down in town the circuit's full with switchblade lovers so fast

So shiny so sharp

And 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 along the shore

Chasin' all them silly new york girls

Sandy the aurora is risin' behind us, the pier lights our carnival

Life forever

Love me tonight for I may never see you again, hey sandy girl

Now the greasers they tramp the streets or get busted for trying to

Sleep on the beach all night

Them boys in their spiked 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 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 that joey kept me spinnin' I didn't think I'd ever get off

Oh sandy the aurora is risin' behind us

The pier lights our carnival life on the water

Runnin' down the beach at night with my boss's daughter

Well he ain't my boss no more sandy

Sandy the angels have lost their desire for us

I spoke to `em just last night and they said they won't set

Themselves on fire for us anymore

Every summer when the weather gets hot they ride that road down from

Heaven on their harleys they come and they go

And you can see `em dressed like stars in all the cheap little seashore

Bars parked making love with their babies out on the kokomo

Well the cops finally busted madame marie for tellin' fortunes better

Than they do

This boardwalk life for me is through

You know you ought to quit this scene too

Sandy the aurora's rising behind us, the pier lights our

Carnival life forever

Oh love me tonight and I promise I'll love you forever
