Bored walking on the boardwalk,
New Jersey Shore.
If I come to New York,
Can I sleep on your floor?
I've been living out of a suitcase on the motel floor
And running up tabs at the corner store.
I'm barely walking on the boardwalk anymore.
When summer gets along,

Your hair gets too long.
I'm picking up the habit of drinking long before four,
When July is gone,
I'll be twenty-four and then not anymore.
New Jersey shore,
New Jersey shore,
Then not anymore.

    General CommentThis is the best Promise Ring song, not so much because of the lyrics but more because of the feeling you get from the music.

    General Commentsaves the day girl: promise ring isn't really from New jersey. They're actually from Milwaukee. But I hope that doesn't change your opinion of new jersey, nor of the promise ring. :)

    General CommentLiving on the west coast (I prefer the left coast but whatever) I don't get to Jersey very often but I am thinking more and more about going. This song has that mellow pace you have when walking down the boardwalk just taking everything in. It's a good feeling.

    General CommentThis song is great, I live next to Long Beach Island.. southern NJ.. and I must say I don't think it's the BEST place in the country, but then again I'm a resident and the grass is always greener on the other side. But this song gives off such a great vibe.. Nj or not, it makes you want to just throw away your shoes and walk barefoot up and down the boardwalk and/or beach and just live life the way it comes to you. Promise Ring is awesome at putting out good feelings.
