Red Mascara (verse and music)
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...
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.
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.
