The Lyrics

New Jersey Is The Home Of Green Bloodied Hound Dogs
Small Cars Keep On Turning
Bring Me Home To See My Kids
Singing Songs About The Garden State
I Love New Jersey Every Day
It Is Not A Sin

Well I Heard Mr. Sprinsteen Sing About Her
Well I Heard Ole Bruce Put Her Down
I Hope Bruce Springsteen Will Remember
Bon Jovi Is Touring With Him

Sweet Home New Jersey
Where The City Meets The Shore
Sweet Home New Jersey
We Will Live There Like Phil Moore

In Bridgewater We Love The Mayor
Now We All Did What We Could Do
Now George Bush Does Not Bother Me
Does Your President Bother You?
Tell The Truth

Sweet Home New Jersey
Where The City Meets The Shore
Sweet Home New Jersey
We Will Live There Like Phil Moore

Now New Jersey Is The Garden State
Home Of Early Doo Wop Bands
Home Of Frank Sinatra
Home Of The Nets & Devils
Now You Know

Sweet Home New Jersey
Where The City Meets The Shore
Sweet Home New Jersey
We Will Live There Like Phil Moore

As THE New Jerseyan on the site... 1. Bruce puts down his TOWN, not his STATE. 2. Putting Bon Jovi in the same sentence as Bruce is like putting the Devil Rays on the same field with the Yankees. You can do it, but what's the point? 3. Who is Phil Moore? There was a Governor named Harry Moore in the Twenties and Thirties, but I guarantee the Green Horn Hound Dogs have never heard of him. 4. Bridgewater? Just another suburb where the boredom is interrupted with maniacs on the highway. Driving on Route 22 is considered an audition for "Jackass." 5. So you love Mayor Jim Dowden? Good thing you didn't mention his name, tough to rhyme. 6. Georgie Bush did not carry New Jersey in '00, he will not carry in '04, and MY President, the one who won the election, bothered me by endorsing Dean well too soon. 7. Did Frank Sinatra ever even VISIT Hoboken once he became famous? He wanted to be a part of it, New York, New York. His kind of town, Chicago was. And he clearly loved L.A. Hoboken? You missed the truly important: Birthplace of baseball. 8. And not a word for the Newark Bears or the Trenton Thunder? The Atlantic City Surf? The Lakewood BlueClaws? Not even the Camden Riversharks, who still (at least until April) have the best ballpark in the Philly area?

Michael - Seems to me like you should write your own parody about this parody since you seem to disagree with everything GBHD says. Why is it that no one can write anything about YOUR garden state without you calling yourself king of NJ and slamming everything that is written in the parody. This is not the first time you have done this. So why not do this right and do your own parody on "Sweet Home NJ" and we'll see if yours does any better than this one.

GBHD - I liked your parody very much and I'm sorry to see you slammed so bad for a good effort.

Guy, if you can't tell the difference between "slamming" and "picking apart," then maybe you shouldn't be on this site. There was no malice in my comments. OK, I called 'em greenhorns, but that wasn't being mean. I'll admit to being a little Felix Ungerish, but this was not a slam. And I never called myself "King of New Jersey." As the first State to ratify the Bill of Rights -- and the third to ratify the Constitution, on this date in history, December 18, 1787 -- we don't believe in that sort of thing. Kings of hockey, that we believe in!
