Lyrics to Boardwalk Anthem
by Teague Alexy

Somewhere 'round the summer of '64 Levon and The Hawks put it down here
Something like three sets a night. That must've been something like a good year
Me and my crew on the corner talking 'bout the girl up the street with the blue eyes
She don't like boys from around here, yeah, what a surprise

It's not like I haven't been pushed around
A punch away from being knocked out before
In Somers Point, on the Jersey Shore

Deep in the shadows of the bright lights I'm running 'round working up a thirst
It's ninety-nine or nothing, you'd better get your moneys worth
I've been squeezing my heart, collecting the drops and hiding from the ghosts and the phantoms
'Son, you oughts keep it to yourself. All they wanna hear is boardwalk anthems'

Alright (repeat)

It's not like I haven't been pushed around
A punch away from being knocked out before
In Somers Point, on the Jersey Shore
It is a long way out the front door

The silver was gone soon as it crossed my palm. Believe me, I know your kind
You used to go down and vacation there. I paid for my mistakes with my summertime
This is for Smitty's and The Baggs and the boys bayside of the ninth street bridge
You can take the kid out of Jersey, but you'll never get the Jersey out of the kid

Alright (repeat)

It's not like I haven't been pushed around
A punch away from being knocked out before
In Somers Point, on the Jersey Shore
It is a long way out the front door (repeat)
