  1. Take my baby to the carnival
    And I'll take you on alllllll ttttthhhhe rides, down the shore everythings alright,
    You and your baby on a Saturday night, don't you know all my dreams cone true,
    When I'm walking down the street with you.

  2. And for anyone regretting it lasting just a little over 5 minutes, try the brilliant cover version by the Pale Saints at over 7 minutes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JAmrjJfuUOI

  3. Tom Waits truly can write a novel in a couple of lines! I'm sure everyone can relate to their "first love" and the line "Don't you know all my dreams come true when I'm walking down the street with you". As for "And I call your name, I can't sleep at night", the word 'genius' does not even approach…

  4. was it 79 – the disc jockey said I've been waiting for this for 4 days

  5. beautiful !!
    I got no time for the corner boys
    Down in the street making all that noise
    Don't want no whores on eighth 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

    Sing sha la la la, sha la la la, sha la la la
    Sha la la la I'm in love with a Jersey girl
    Sha la la la, sha la la la, sha la la la

    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

    Sing sha la la la, sha la la la, sha la la la
    Sha la la la I'm in love with a Jjersey girl
    Sha la la la, sha la la la, sha la la la

    When I call your name, I can sleep all night
    Sha la la la, sha la la la, sha la la la
    Sha la la la I'm in love with a Jersey girl
    Sha la la la, sha la la la, sha la la la
    Sha la la la I'm in love, I'm in love with a Jersey girl

  6. Don't want no whores on eighth avenue cause tonight I want to be with you. Greatest line in a love song ever.

  7. I have no problem with Bruce and Bon Jovi covering an artist they respect, but I hate how they won't say "whores". instead they say "Girls on 8th avenue"…….pussies!
