Girls in Their Summer Clothes: Countdown to Bruce Springsteen at Giants Stadium

The Roxiticus Desperate Housewives are off for one last hurrah before Mary Alice heads off to the West Coast. Back before she even knew she'd be leaving us, Mary Alice bought four tickets to see Bruce Springsteen at Giants Stadium on July 31st... so Lynette, Susan and I will join her for a Girl's Night Out next Thursday night. There's only room for four in my Jeep, but to get all of us in the mood, here's a YouTube video courtesy of Chris McCreath...





Well the street lights shine
Down on Blessing Avenue
Lovers they walk by
Holdin' hands two by two

A breeze crosses the porch
Bicycle spokes spin 'round
Jacket's on, I'm out the door
Tonight I'm gonna burn this town down

And the girls in their summer clothes
In the cool of the evening light
The girls in their summer clothes
Pass me by

Kid's rubber ball smacks
Off the gutter 'neath the lamp light
Big bank clock chimes
Off go the sleepy front porch lights

Downtown the store's alive
As the evening's underway
Things been a little tight
But I know they're gonna turn my way

And the girls in their summer clothes
In the cool of the evening light
The girls in their summer clothes
Pass me by

Frankie's Diner's
Over on the edge of town
Neon sign spinnin' round
Like a cross over the lost and found



Fluorescent lights
Flicker above Bob's Grill
Shaniqua brings a coffee and asks "fill?"
And says "penny for your thoughts now my poor Bill"

She went away
She cut me like a knife
Had a beautiful thing
Maybe you just saved my life

In just a glance
Down here on Magic Street
Love's a fool's dance
I ain't got much sense but I still got my feet





And the girls in their summer clothes
In the cool of the evening light
The girls in their summer clothes
Pass me by


Let's go, GNO!

Although it was my first encounter with your blog and it will take time when I get accustomed to your writing still ... the video was nice :)
