BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN - 4th Of July, Asbury Park Lyrics

Sandy the fireworks are hailin' over little eden tonightForcin' a light into all those stoned-out faces left strandedOn this fourth of julyDown in town the circuit's full with switchblade lovers so fastSo shiny so sharpAnd the wizards play down on pinball way on the boardwalk way past darkAnd the boys from the casino dance with their shirts open like latinLovers along the shoreChasin' all them silly new york girlsSandy the aurora is risin' behind us, the pier lights our carnivalLife foreverLove me tonight for I may never see you again, hey sandy girlNow the greasers they tramp the streets or get busted for trying toSleep on the beach all nightThem boys in their spiked high heels ah sandy their skins are so whiteAnd me I just got tired of hangin' in them dusty arcades bangin' themPleasure machinesChasin' the factory girls underneath the boardwalk where they promiseTo unsnap their jeansAnd you know that tilt-a-whirl down on the south beach dragI got on it last night and my shirt got caughtAnd that joey kept me spinnin' I didn't think I'd ever get offOh sandy the aurora is risin' behind usThe pier lights our carnival life on the waterRunnin' down the beach at night with my boss's daughterWell he ain't my boss no more sandySandy the angels have lost their desire for usI spoke to `em just last night and they said they won't setThemselves on fire for us anymoreEvery summer when the weather gets hot they ride that road down fromHeaven on their harleys they come and they goAnd you can see `em dressed like stars in all the cheap little seashoreBars parked making love with their babies out on the kokomoWell the cops finally busted madame marie for tellin' fortunes betterThan they doThis boardwalk life for me is throughYou know you ought to quit this scene tooSandy the aurora's rising behind us, the pier lights ourCarnival life foreverOh love me tonight and I promise I'll love you forever
