I’m From New Jersey
Written & Music by Red Mascara
Verse (Ad lib)
I know of a state that’s a perfect playland with white sandy beaches by the sea;
With fun-filled mountains, lakes and parks, and folks with hospitality;
With historic towns where battles were fought, and presidents have made their home;
It’s called New Jersey, and I toast and tout it wherever I may roam. ‘Cause . . .
I’M FROM NEW JERSEY and I’m proud about it, I love the Garden State.
I’M FROM NEW JERSEY and I want to shout it, I think it’s simply great.
All of the other states throughout the nation may mean a lot to some;
But I wouldn’t want another, Jersey is like no other, I’m glad that’s where I’m from.
If you want glamour, try Atlantic City or Wildwood by the sea;
Then there is Trenton, Princeton, and Fort Monmouth, they all made history.
Each little town has got that certain something, from High Point to Cape May;
And some place like Mantoloking, Phillipsburg, or Hoboken will steal your heart away.
