Gettin' the Band Back Together the Musical - Jersey Lyrics

Happy Birthday
Happy Birthday, Mitch
Turning forty
Ain't that a bitch
Getting fired by a tyke
From a job I didn't even like
What the hell do I do know?
At forty
Looking down the bow
Of living with my mother
And the only place I swore
I'd never
Go. Back. To.

Between New York and PA
There's a place a place that they say
Got it's name from a British Isle
Where the people are tan
And every woman and man
Has a funky, expressive style
Look out from any flat
And you can see Manhattan
But it doesn't really turn our heads
What New York has in clout,
We got room to spread out
So we steal their teams instead
Just off the Garden State Parkway
Back side of the Statue of Liberty
Just off the New York Bay
Right where we want to be in Jersey
HELL YEAH!
Welcome home to the Garden State in New Jersey
HELL YEAH!
In spite of Camden, a low crime rate
Giants and Jets in the Meadowlands
Home state of all the greatest bands
Perfect beaches and snow capped hills
It's like New York, but you can pay your bills
in New Jersey
HELL YEAH!
It's a hell of a place to call home!

Nothing's changed much
At exit I 24
From bank of majors, pawn, to the liquor store
SUV after SUV
Filled with folks I used to know
Who never left this town or the status quo

Roll out of bed each day
Watch my dreams fade away
Punch the same punch clock
Make the same cop talk
As the years keep ticking on
Must have popped a hundred pimples
Since this lousy day began
But if I'm being true
Between me and you
This is not what I had planned
In New Jersey
HELL YEAH!
Never thought I would find my ass back in
Jersey, HELL YEAH!
Just sit tight, let us pump your gas
The pizza guys all know my name
Every day is just the same
Counting the years in Botox shots
The life I meant to live but not in Jersey
HELL YEAH!
Libery and Posterity
In New Jersey
HELL YEAH!
Also known as New York, Plan B!
New Jersey, HELL YEAH!
It's a hell of a place
It's a hell of a place
It's a hell of a place to call home!
