Jersey Girl

He aquí una bellísima canción, originalmente compuesta e interpretada por Tom Waits (Heartattack And Vine, 1980) y dedicada a su mujer, Kathleen Brennan. Es tan buena la original, que tiene mérito que gente como Bruce Springsteen o Bon Jovi se hayan atrevido a versionarla, con buenos resultados, por cierto.

Tom Waits - Jersey Girl

Got no time for the corner boys, down in the street makin all that noise,
Dont want no whores on eighth avenue, cause tonight Im gonna be with you.

Cause tonight Im gonna take that ride, across the river to the jersey side,
Take my baby to the carnival, and Ill take you on all the rides, sing sha la
La la la la sha la la la.

Down the shore everythings alright, you with your baby on a saturday night,
Dont you know that all my dreams come true, when Im walkin down the street
With you, sing sha la la la la la sha la la la.

You know she thrills me with all her charms, when Im wrapped up in my
Babys arms, my little angel gives me everything, I know someday that shell
Wear my ring.

So dont bother me cause I got no time, Im on my way to see that girl of
Mine, nothin else matters in this whole wide world, when youre in love with
A jersey girl, sing sha la la la la la la.

And I call your name, I cant sleep at night, sha la la la la la la.
