Lyrics LA LA LA LA
LA LA LA LA.
CAN YOU HEAR IT?
NO, NOT QUITE.
THEN COME
WHERE YOU'LL BE ABLE TO HEAR
CONEY ISLAND TONIGHT!
RIDE THE TUMBLER!
EAT A HOT DOG!
HAVE YOUR PALM READ!
DO IT RIGHT!
I SEE FOR TOMORROW
UNBEARABLE SORROW
UNLESS TONIGHT
YOU RUN TO PLAY
ON THE MIDWAY.
THERE'S THE OCEAN!
I CAN SEE!
THEN, OH, WHAT A SHAME
YOU WON'T GET TO SEE
CONEY ISLAND WITH ME.

BETTY,
IT'S TEMPTING
AND I'D LOVE TO.
IT'S A PITY.
IT'S A SHAME.
IT'S JUST THAT I'VE GOT OTHER...
NOW, DON'T SAY A WORD.
YOU'RE REALLY NOT TO BLAME.
THINGS ARE AS THEY SHOULD BE
AND IT HARDLY SEEMS A CRIME.
NO, YOU GO OUT TO DINNER,
WHILE I HAVE A WONDERFUL TIME!
I'LL TELL YOU SOMETHIN'
THAT EV'RYONE KNOWS,
FROM THE BARKER
TO THE CHILD
WITH HIS MAIDEN AUNT:
IN THE REST OF THE WORLD
YA DO WHAT YA HAFTA,
BUT AT CONEY ISLAND,
YA DO WHAT YOU WANT!

LA LA LA LA
LA LA LA LA.
GO ON SING IT!
WELL, I MIGHT.
JUST CLOSE YOUR EYES
AND GUESS WHERE WE ARE?
CONEY ISLAND TONIGHT!
TAKE YOUR TIE OFF!
MESS YOUR HAIR UP!
HAVE YOUR PALM READ.
YEAH!
DO IT RIGHT!
OR TAKE A RIDE
ON THE ROLLER COASTER
AND HOLD ME TIGHT...
GET YOUR HANDS UP,
WITH A 'WHEE!'
WITH A WHAT?!
WITH A 'WHEE!'
OH, BOY, WHAT A SHAME
YOU WON'T GET TO SEE
CONEY ISLAND...

WHERE THE HECK
IS THE MIDWAY?
BY THE OCEAN
ON THE RIGHT!
ON THE LEFT!
ON THE RIGHT!
SO PUT OUT THE CAT
'CAUSE WE'RE GONNA SEE
CONEY ISLAND TONIGHT!

STEP RIGHT UP!
STEP RIGHT UP!
TAKE A GANDER AND SEE!
THE FATTEST LADY ALIVE
CAN BE YOURS
FOR ONE THIN DIME.
ONE THIN DIME,
IF YOU'LL PARDON THE PUN!
NINETY SEVEN POUNDS...
THAT'S HER NOSE!
OOH!
NOT TO MENTION
HER TWENTY SEVEN INCH TONGUE!
YUCH!
SPEAK UP!
TEN CENTS!
LET ME HEAR YA!
THERE'S ONE!
TWO!
THREE!

FOR ONCE,
LET'S CHASE ADVENTURE.
SEE THE MIDWAY
BURNING BRIGHT!
SO PUT OUT THE CAT,
AND LEAVE THE SALOON,
AND LOCK UP THE FLAT,
AND SWALLOW THE KEY
'CAUSE WE'RE GONNA SEE
CONEY ISLAND TONIGHT!

A RIDE OF THRILL
AND ADVENTURE!
ON THE COASTER,
HOLD ME TIGHT!
THERE'S NOWHERE ELSE
FOR DARLING
BUT HERE,
CONEY ISLAND TONIGHT!
RIDE THE TUMBLER!
EAT A HOT DOG!
HAVE YOUR PALM READ
ON THE RUN!
WITH US
AT THE SIDESHOW
I KNOW YOU
AND I'D SHOW EM.
FOR ONCE,
LET'S CHASE AN ADVENTURE!
SEE THE MIDWAY
BURNING BRIGHT!
SO PUT OUT THE CAT
AND LEAVE THE SALOON
AND LOCK UP THE FLAT
AND SWALLOW THE KEY,
'CAUSE WE'RE GONNA SEE
CONEY ISLAND TONIGHT!

Lyrics YOU'RE THE BEST THING THAT EVER HAPPENED TO ME.
IF YOU GO NOW,
I'M SURE TO WANDER ALONE.
THE WINE OF PASSION
WOULD ALL BE WASTED,
FOR NOW, I'VE TASTED YOURS.
AND IT'S THE BEST THING THAT EVER HAPPENED TO ME.
YOU'VE POSSESSED ME,
AND NOW YOU'VE MADE ME ALIVE...
IT MAY TAKE A DAY
OR A LIFETIME OR TWO,
BUT I JUST WANT TO BE THE BEST THING
THAT EVER HAPPENED TO YOU.

THE WINE OF PASSION
WOULD ALL BE WASTED,
FOR NOW, I'VE TASTED YOURS.
AND IT'S THE BEST THING THAT EVER HAPPENED TO ME.
LET ME LIVE ON THE GLOW
OF LOVE IN YOUR EYES!
IT MAY TAKE A DAY OR A LIFETIME OR TWO...
BUT I WON'T REST
'TIL I'M THE BEST THING
THAT EVER HAPPENED TO YOU.
