Lyrics OH, THE BOARDWALK IS DESERTED,
THERE'S NOBODY
DOWN BY THE SHORE
AND THE FERRIS WHEEL RIDE
ISNT TURNING AROUND
ANY MORE.
THE HEAT WAVE
AND THE CROWDS
ARE JUST OLD NEWS,
BUT I'VE STILL GOT
SOME SAND IN MY SHOES.

SAND IN MY SHOES,
BRINGS MEMORIES
OF THE SALTY AIR
SAND IN MY SHOES,
THE BLANKET
THAT WE USED TO SHARE.
HOW WE FELL IN LOVE
DOWN BY THE SEA,
COMES BACK TO ME
WITH THE SAND IN MY SHOES.

WHEN THE WATER WAS COLD,
YOU WOULD TREMBLE
AND HOLD ME SO TIGHT,
AND WE WOULD SIT
ON THE BEACH,
JUST TO WAIT
FOR THE STARS
TO COME OUT
AT NIGHT.
THE HEAT WAVE
AND THE CROWDS
ARE JUST OLD NEWS,
BUT I'VE STILL GOT
SOME SAND IN MY SHOES.

SAND IN MY SHOES,
BRINGS MEMORIES
OF THE SALTY AIR
SAND IN MY SHOES,
THE BLANKET
THAT WE USED TO SHARE.
HOW WE FELL IN LOVE
DOWN BY THE SEA,
COMES BACK TO ME
WITH THE SAND IN MY SHOES.

Lyrics HE MAY SEND YOU FLOWERS,
BABY,
EV'RY SINGLE DAY;
BUY YOU FANCY CLOTHES
FROM PARIS,
AND HAVE SWEET THINGS
TO SAY.
BUT I CAN GIVE YOU LOVE,
SWEET, SWEET LOVE.
NOW AIN'T THAT
JUST A LITTLE BIT BETTER?

NOW HE'LL TAKE YOU
TO NIGHTCLUBS
IN A SHINY LIMOUSINE;
BUY YOU FURS
AND DIAMOND BRACELETS;
MAKE YOU LOOK
JUST LIKE A QUEEN.
BUT I CAN GIVE YOU LOVE,
SWEET, SWEET LOVE.
NOW AIN'T THAT
JUST A LITTLE BIT BETTER?

LOVE, LOVE,
LOVE
IS WHAT I COULD GIVE YA.
TRUE, TRUE, LOVE,
AS LONG AS I MAY LIVE.

HE MAY WANT TO BUY
A FANCY MANSION
ON A HILL
WHERE YOU'LL LIVE WITH HIM
FOREVER, BABY;
THAT AIN'T SUCH A THRILL,
'CAUSE I COULD GIVE YOU LOVE,
SWEET, SWEET LOVE,
NOW AIN'T THAT
JUST A LITTLE BIT BETTER?

Lyrics Chorus:
GOT A LITTLE BIT OF HEAVEN
IN THIS LONELY WORLD,
GOT A LITTLE BIT OF HEAVEN
ON EARTH,
WHEN I'M WITH MY GIRL.

verse 1:
WHEN SHADOWS FALL,
SHE'S WAITING JUST FOR ME,
TO KISS HER LIPS
AND LOVE HER TENDERLY
I'M SUCH A LUCKY GUY,
I FOUND A LITTLE ANGEL,
SUCH A LUCKY GUY,
'CAUSE I...

Chorus
GOT A LITTLE BIT OF HEAVEN
IN THIS LONELY WORLD,
GOT A LITTLE BIT OF HEAVEN
ON EARTH,
WHEN I'M WITH MY GIRL.

verse 2:
I GOT THE STARS,
OH, THEY'RE ALL IN HER EYES,
SHE SPEAKS MY NAME
AND I'M IN PARADISE
I'M SUCH A LUCKY GUY,
I FOUND A LITTLE ANGEL,
SUCH A LUCKY GUY,
'CAUSE I...

Chorus
GOT A LITTLE BIT OF HEAVEN
IN THIS LONELY WORLD,
GOT A LITTLE BIT OF HEAVEN
ON EARTH,
WHEN I'M WITH MY GIRL.

Lyrics Chorus:
ONE KISS FOR OLD TIMES' SAKE,
JUST LIKE IT USED TO BE,
ONE KISS FOR OLD TIMES' SAKE,
COULD BRING YOU BACK TO ME.

verse 1:
IF YOU'D GIVE ME A CHANCE,
TO LOVE YOU ONE MORE TIME,
MAYBE MY LIPS ON YOURS
COULD CHANGE YOUR MIND.
AND YOU WOULD KNOW
HOW MUCH I WANT YOU,
I NEED YOU, I LOVE YOU,
OH, MY DARLING,
PLEASE GRANT ME THIS.

Chorus:
ONE KISS FOR OLD TIMES' SAKE,
JUST LIKE IT USED TO BE,
ONE KISS FOR OLD TIMES' SAKE,
COULD BRING YOU BACK TO ME.

verse 2:
IF THERE'S A SPARK OF LOVE
STILL LEFT FROM OUR ROMANCE,
YOU OWE IT TO YOUR HEART
TO GIVE ME ONE MORE CHANCE.
OH, CAN'T YOU SEE
HOW MUCH I WANT YOU,
I NEED YOU, I LOVE YOU,
SO, MY DARLING,
PLEASE GRANT ME THIS.

Chorus:
ONE KISS FOR OLD TIMES' SAKE,
JUST LIKE IT USED TO BE,
ONE KISS FOR OLD TIMES' SAKE,
COULD BRING YOU BACK TO ME.

Lyrics OH, WHEN THE SUN
BEATS DOWN
AND BURNS THE TAR
UP ON THE ROOF,
AND YOUR SHOES
GET SO HOT
YOU WISH
YOUR TIRED FEET
WERE FIREPROOF.

UNDER THE BOARDWALK,
DOWN BY THE SEA,
ON A BLANKET
WITH MY BABY'S
WHERE I'LL BE.
UNDER THE BOARDWALK,
OUT OF THE SUN,
UNDER THE BOARDWALK,
WE'LL HAVE SOME FUN.
UNDER THE BOARDWALK,
PEOPLE WALKIN' ABOVE,
UNDER THE BOARDWALK,
WE'LL BE
FALLIN' IN LOVE.
UNDER THE BOARDWALK,
BOARDWALK.

FROM THE PARK
YOU HEAR
THE HAPPY SOUND
OF A CAROUSEL,
YOU CAN ALMOST TASTE
THE HOTDOGS
AND FRENCH FRIES
THEY SELL.

UNDER THE BOARDWALK,
DOWN BY THE SEA,
ON A BLANKET
WITH MY BABY'S
WHERE I'LL BE.
UNDER THE BOARDWALK,
OUT OF THE SUN,
UNDER THE BOARDWALK,
WE'LL HAVE SOME FUN.
UNDER THE BOARDWALK,
PEOPLE WALKIN' ABOVE,
UNDER THE BOARDWALK,
WE'LL BE
FALLIN' IN LOVE.
UNDER THE BOARDWALK,
BOARDWALK.
