On The Boardwalks

(At the Jersey Shore)

words & music by

Sal A. Marino

Chorus:

Walking on the boardwalks at the Jersey Shore, Calliope is singin' with the ocean's roar,

Walking in the nighttime or the noonday sun, Come on baby, we can have some fun....At the Jersey Shore.

Verses:

Walking on the boardwalk down in Point Pleasant Beach, Lookin' all around me everythings within reach. Cotton candy, candy apples, Kohrs Ice Cream.

Fun House or Aquarium--- its a scream..At the Jersey Shore.

Walking on the boardwalk down in Seaside Heights, Strollin' in the nighttime look at all those pretty lights. Gonna win my girl a little cuddly toy; she'll give me a hug 'cause Im her cuddly boy....at the Jersey Shore.

Walking on the boards in Ocean City, NJ. Heres the place to be, night or day!

Take the Tram or walk the boards from end to end, find a cool postcard that you can send...from the Jersey Shore.

Gonna get some taffy down in old AC, Casinos and those rollin' chairs as far as you can see. Taj Mahal or Showboat or the Wild, Wild West. AC is the boardwalk that has the best..of the Jersey Shore.

What do teachers and principals do when they retire? They walk all the boardwalks of New Jersey, writing about all the interesting things they have found. Did they find any buried treasure? Read the book and find out!! Walk with us beginning in Perth Amboy as it wraps around the Kill Van Kull west along the Raritan, then over to Keyport and east to Sea Bright. Head south with us toward Long Branch, Asbury Park, Point Pleasant Beach, Seaside Park and Island Beach State Park. Continue to Long Beach Island and points south. Don't miss Ocean City, Atlantic City, Ventnor and down toward The Wildwoods and Cape May. Enjoy the Jersey Shore!
