I’m From New Jersey
Written & Music by Red Mascara
With fun-filled mountains, lakes and parks, and folks with hospitality;
With historic towns where battles were fought, and presidents have made their home;
It’s called New Jersey, and I toast and tout it wherever I may roam. ‘Cause . . .
I’M FROM NEW JERSEY and I’m proud about it, I love the Garden State.
I’M FROM NEW JERSEY and I want to shout it, I think it’s simply great.
All of the other states throughout the nation may mean a lot to some;
But I wouldn’t want another, Jersey is like no other, I’m glad that’s where I’m from.
If you want glamour, try Atlantic City or Wildwood by the sea;
Then there is Trenton, Princeton, and Fort Monmouth, they all made history.
Each little town has got that certain something, from High Point to Cape May;
And some place like Mantoloking, Phillipsburg, or Hoboken will steal your heart away.
New Jersey’s Unofficial State Song “I’m From New Jersey,” passed both Legislative Houses in 1972. However, it was not signed into law by the Governor. It remains popular statewide and on the Web.
