Sandy the fireworks are hailin' over Little Eden tonight
on this Fourth of July
so shiny so sharp
And the boys from the casino dance with their shirts open like Latin
Chasin' all them silly New York girls
Sandy the aurora is risin' behind us, the pier lights our carnival
Love me tonight for I may never see you again, hey Sandy girl
Now the greasers they tramp the streets or get busted for trying to
Them boys in their spiked high heels ah Sandy their skins are so white
pleasure machines
to unsnap their jeans
I got on it last night and my shirt got caught

The pier lights our carnival life on the water
Well he ain't my boss no more Sandy
Sandy the angels have lost their desire for us
themselves on fire for us anymore
heaven on their Harleys they come and they go
bars parked making love with their babies out on the Kokomo
than they do
You know you ought to quit this scene too
Sandy the aurora's rising behind us, the pier lights our
Oh love me tonight and I promise I'll love you forever
