lyrics

riding on a ferris wheel
living in the ideal
bliss on the holiday
amused by the revolution
round and round you’re turning
staring out at the bay
Uncle Sam always gets his way
on the fourth of July

cotton candy
brown bag brandy
lazy river ride
kids and coca cola
just like they sold ya
with your beautiful bride
just for a moment you can hide
on the fourth of July

holding all the glory as you run
on the boardwalk you can’t avoid the bums
glowing like the faces round the fire
sing the star spangled banner with the choir

Coney Island
living in the big fun
castles all along the beach
poisoned seagulls
dirty needles
right before your eyes you see
freedom at the cost of being free
on the fourth of July

windows breaking
mothers shaking
walls are caving in
the world keeps turning
backward learning
the streets they smell of sin
grandson are you listening
it’s the fourth of July

sitting in a carriage in the sun
you take another shot and then you’re done
praying for a home up in the sky
take a look at your footprints before you die
take a look at your footprints before you die
take a look at your footprints before you die
