Jersey Girl - Tom Waits



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

It is 11:48 AM late Tuesday morning in the death flow. It is a sunny not so warm morning. Once the grass dries I plan to mow our front lawn.

Carol just went to bed to sleep, she works tonight. She just had nine nights off from work. This time next year 2020 she will be fully retired from the work force. Her nursing career will have come to a close.

Carol and I both got up this morning around 6 o'clock AM. I spent the morning mainly reading a book titled, 'Kinship by Covenant: A Canonical Approach to the Fulfillment of God's Saving Promises' by Scott W. Hahn.

Last night we went to bed early. So has gone by existence in a dead zone. Yesterday I mainly read from a book titled, 'Stephen Spender: Journals 1939-1983' Edited By John Goldsmith.

Well I suppose I will close to wait for what comes next. I just remembered we watched last night the new Ken Burns documentary on the history of Country music. I personally did not like the documentary, because it sought to be politically correct (kiss the ass of while liberals).
