The Lyrics

I was going to title it "The Devil Went Down to Jersey," but that might've confused someone into thinking this was about hockey. Tonsil hockey, maybe. This may be, er, a situation where ol' Louie Cifer might finally win one of these.
(instrumental opening)

The Devils went down to Seaside, he was looking for a soul to steal.
He landed on the boardwalk, the Situation's copping a feel.
That guido took his shirt off, told the girls he thinks he's hot.
Then the Devil clenched on a boardwalk bench and said, "Boy, lemme tell you what:

I guess you didn't know this, but I'm a boardwalk-beach bum, too.
And if you care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you.
Now you have lots of fun here, kid, but give the Devil his due:
I'll bet a chain of gold against your soul, to one girl, you can't be true!"

The boy said, "I'm the Situation, who dares say I sin?
I won't take that bet, 'cause the girls I get say I'm the best that's ever been!"

Snooki's poofin' up her hair, and Pauly D acts hard.
But hell's broke loose in Jersey and the Devil deals the cards.
That guido Situation thinks he's pure Italian gold.
Soon, he will wish he's Irish or a Pole!

(instrumental break)

The Devil said, "Hi there, VH1, I'm guest star on your show."
And fire flew from his fingertips, and Snooki's saying, "Whoa!
Don't light my breath or hair on fire!" He said, with an evil hiss,
"With that hair, little girl, you're five-foot-five, without, you're four-foot-six!"

(instrumental break)

When the Devil felt J-Woww's silicone, she said, "You're good, old son.
But just sit right down in that chair right there, and watch Sit-u-a-tion!"

Fire on the boardwalk, run, boys, run!
Devil's on the Parkway, Exit 81!
Comin' down the Causeway, really fast!
Seaside good times just won't last!

(instrumental break)

The Devil licked his chops because he knew that he'd succeed.
'Cause Sleaze-side Heights, in days and nights, will make your spirit bleed.
The Devil said, "I'm comin' back next summer, ready to go again.
For now, my thrills will be in 'The Hills,' they're the worst that's ever been!"

Fire on the boardwalk, run, boys, run!
Devil's on the Parkway, Exit 81!
Comin' down the Causeway, really fast!
Seaside good times just won't last!

(instrumental close)
Exit 81 on the Garden State Parkway is for downtown Toms River. Exit 82 takes you onto Route 37 into the surburban part of that town, and then onto the Causeway into Seaside Heights. Sometimes, the rhyme fits the, uh, situation; and sometimes it doesn't. This time, not quite, but you get the point.

Michael - Believe it or not, I KNOW Tom's River! My brother lived there for a number of years early in his marriage (he married a lady from Long Island). He commuted every day to Trenton(!) while working for the NJ Department of The Environment. Anyway...great job here. ;D

I don't know Tom's River, but love the personal feel of this classic, great take on it

Believe it or not, I also know Tom's River. In fact Seaside Heights is where I saw the ocean for the very first time. I was 15. I have been at the shore of the Atlantic and Pacific oceans many times since but NJ was the first for me. I didn't see Bruce Springsteen there that day. Anyway, this is a great take on a chunk of old gold.
