Jersey Girls

This song is basically about me moving away from home for the first time in my life, and experiencing everything the great city of LA has to offer. It also depicts how terribly I am missing my HOME : New Jersey.

Nothing can ever compare… the diners, the food, the late night convenience, the crappy weather, and how the city, the beach and the country are all within a 20 -30 mile radius. Well you get the point…

Before I get into the song, there’s just a small reference I wanted to elaborate on, which I have already been questioned about. The reference to Patty’s Burgundy Shoes is actually about a song called “Burgundy Shoes” by Patty Griffin , an amazing songwriter. I listened to her a lot before making the big move to LA so her music will always remind me of driving on NJ highways in the dead of winter. If anyone has any questions about a lyric , just ask and I shall explain!

 

Lyrics & Music by Justina Carubia

Well I dunno how long I’ll be here
NJ, Seattle, to LA
But I’m sure missin New York City
And the first quake I feel
I’m headin for the subway

Now Everyday is picture perfect
It’s sad I’m wishing for some rain
Those snowy winters in New Jersey
Where Patty’s Burgundy Shoes
Were blasting on the parkway

This Socal life of mine
Jammed on the 405
But in the Garden State
The diners that stay open late’s
Is why Jersey Girls don’t belong in LA

Now everybody’s up on Venice
The shops are closing up at 8
But no signs here point to Pleasant
And the cardboard pizza
Doesn’t do it for me anyway

This Socal life of mine
Jammed on the 405
But in the Garden State
The gossip that our Governor’s gay
Is why Jersey Girls don’t belong in LA

Maybe Nashville’s next
With the guitar on my back
Not this superficial world
That’s singing on a backing track
Either way , my heart can’t escape
The constant need to to tailgate

This Socal life of mine
Jammed on the 405
But in the Garden State
The bodies floating in spring lake
Is why Jersey Girls don’t belong in LA
This Socal life of mine
Jammed on the 405
But in the Garden State
The weekends in New Hope, PA
Is why Jersey Girls don’t belong in LA…
