You know she thrills me with all her charms

When I'm wrapped up in my baby's arms

My little angel gives me everything

I know someday she'll wear my ring

So don't bother me 'cause I've got no time

I'm on my way to see that girl of mine

nothing matters in this hole wide world

when you're in love with a jersey girl
