The Lyrics

My friends are talking about "Jersey Shore" nonstop, and they don't realize just how horrible it is. They think it's a great show, but all it shows is untalented celebrities getting drunk and acting stupid. (Why ARE these losers famous?) Besides, in 2004 Snooki was charged with selling alcohol to minors after a teenage boy DIED in a drunk-driving accident. And the show's use of the word "guido" is racist. Not to mention, I love New Jersey. I go there a lot. But the show makes it look like it's all sex and drugs and partying. I can't bottle it up!
Ruined the shore and you're to blame
Snooki, you give Jersey a bad name!

Sex and drugs are what you sell
It used to be heaven, now MTV's hell
It's crap like you I don't want to see
From this publicity I can't break free
Whoa oh, Snooki killed a kid
Whoa oh, you know what she did?
She sold booze to him and then his life skid!

Ruined the shore and you're to blame
J-Woww, you give Jersey a bad name
Why do people love the show? It's lame
The Sitch, you give Jersey a bad name
You give Jersey a bad name

I've been there so many times
Without gulping one Bud Light Lime
With tanning beds and "guido" lies
I signed a petition saying this must die!
Whoa oh, this is overdone
Whoa oh, just take it and run
Cancel the show, but there's still damage done!

Ruined the shore and you're to blame
Sammi, you give Jersey a bad name
Why do people love the show? It's lame
Ronnie, you give Jersey a bad name
You give Jersey...

(Guitar solo)

WHOA!
Ruined the shore and you're to blame
Vinny, you give Jersey a bad name
Why do people love the show? It's lame
Pauly, you give Jersey a bad name

Ruined the shore and you're to blame
You give Jersey a bad name
Why do people love the show? It's lame
You give Jersey a bad name


You give Jersey (whoa oh oh)
You give Jersey a bad name
You give Jersey (whoa oh oh)
You give Jersey a bad name
(repeat until fade)

Bon Jovi gave New Jersey a bad name before these twits ever showed up, but they're not helping! It's bad enough that they're guidos, but they're also chavs!

I can never get into Jersey Shore but I love Enrique Iglesias song on that show...that's the only thing I like about it. I myself may be from Jersey, but I would never want to be part of their group. 555's for this one from down the shore!
