On The North Shore

"New Jersey and You: Perfect Together." -- Thomas H. Kean, Former Governor of New Jersey

"What did you have to drink tonight?" -- Officer Jeffrey Dellarusso, New Jersey State Trooper


Well, Iím gonna make a beeline

ĎCause I need to soothe my poor mind.

Just a ten minute stroll along 181.

A place with plenty of distraction

But where you can choose your own reaction.

With no concern at all about making the cut

Like a dim and smiling mutt.


ĎCause itís a mighty fine Sunday.

An illuminating fun day.

And it only takes one day on the north shore.


Now that my marriage was just a put-on,

There are few things I can count on:

The smell of roasted coffee and fresh bait from the shop.

And since the DEP has weakened

Up its laws, the lake has deepened.

Got my rudder all fixed up.

Now, Iím all ready to ride

With the wind at my side.


ĎCause itís a mighty fine Sunday.

And that can only mean ďfun day.Ē

And it only takes one day on the north shore.

Thereíll be three or four ale rounds

With my buddies from the next town.

You can always find common ground on the north shore.


Donít decline

The things you know will make you unwind.

Never depend

On a good chance cominí up again.


I watch Becky with her nieces.

Lately, Iíve heard sheís been in pieces

Over some guy who for ten years had strung her along.

My friends say I should consider

Goiní on up to her; maybe kid her

And try everything I can just to let her know

That itís time to let go.


For itís a mighty fine Sunday.

You know, I might not be in Monday.

ĎCause it only takes one day on the north shore.

Gonna bask out in the moonlight

To forget about the twilight.

Get your unexpected delights on the north shore

On the north shore.

On the north shore.

On the north shore.
