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

Sandy, the fireworks are hailin' over little Eden tonight

Sparkin' a light in all those lonesome faces staring up on this warm July

Down in town the streets are full of switchblade lovers, so fast, so shiny, so sharp

And them wizards play down on pinball way on the boardwalk way past dark

And those boys from the Casino dance with their shirts open like bandits on the shore

Ah, catching all them silly New York girls by the score.

So 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.

Well the greasers, they tramp the streets or get busted for sleeping on the beach all night

It's like a sidewalk burlesque, those boys in their high heels, oh Sandy, their skins are so white

Oh and me I got tired, oh so damn tired of working in that dusty old arcade and fixin' their machines

Chasin' them 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

Oh that Joey kept me spinnin'

Oh, he would not let me off.

So, Sandy, this aurora is risin' behind us

Oh this pier lights our carnival life 'cross the water

Oh runnin' laughing 'neath the boardwalk with Rollie Joe's daughter

Hmmm mmmm..

Well now Sandy, them north side angels, they lost their desire for us

I spoke with 'em last night, they said they won't set themselves on fire for us anymore

Oh, but the weather gets hot, and every season you can still see 'em come and go

Oh, dressed like stars in that cheap little bars and parked with their baby down on the Kokomo

Did you hear the cops they busted Madame Marie for tellin' fortunes better than they do

It don't matter much any more, girl, summer's gonna be through.

And 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

Sandy Girl

La La la

Sandy girl

Oh la la ya ya.
