She was working selling peanuts, mmm,
Down by the shore,
And I was working for peanuts,
Selling ice cream on my brother's stall.

I tell ya, ice cream sells when it's hot,
But it don't sell so well when it's not,
And when everybody goes away,
How I hoped and wished you would stay,
Hey-hey hey.

Ooh, ooh ooh ooh ooh.

She's a Coney Island baby,
Got the prettiest brown eyes I've seen,
She says, "Ooh-ooh, I'm goin steady,
But I like it if you know what I mean."

Did I fall in love, well yes I would say,
And now I want to see her every day,
And when everybody goes away,
How I hoped and wished you would stay,
Hey-hey hey.

Oooh, ooh ooh ooh ooh.

Well I like to go swimming to unwind at the end of the day,
I was drying myself down when my brother had something to say,
Said, "The girl you like has gone away,
She took the last train out today,"
And when everybody goes away,
Why did she promise she would stay?
Hey-hey hey.

Please make it a little bit brighter,
I really liked her,
Now I just don't know what to...(x9)
