Bound To Do It Right
(The Jersey City Song) 

Fall is upon us
There’s no way to stop it
It happens all around
The leaves on the trees
Are no longer green
And now they’re fallin’ down
It’s our hearts delight
It’s Bound To Do It Right

94 year-old Maisie O’Brien
She is never shyin’ away from the crowd
She talks in the day
Talks in the night
History from her mouth
If you had her eyes
You’d see they’re
Bound To Do It Right
 

CHORUS
Risin’ up
To an East Coast mornin’
Havin’ talks
In the pale moonlight
I never thought it’d be a different day, a different time
It’s Bound To Do It Right
 

Sweet Jersey City
She don’t look too pretty
But take a look around
The people are movin’
Their bodies a-groovin’
Their feet they stomp and pound
They have their pride
They’re Bound To Do It Right

Kennedy Boulevard
Isn’t too very far
From the place I knew
Where Mother Theresa
Would surely come meet ya
And give her house and home
In her garden lies
A scene that’s Bound To Do It Right

CHORUS

One year today
Was a different way
From what we’re feelin’ now
Just after 3
You’re lookin' at me
We’re now on common ground
Movin’ out of sight
It’s Bound To Do It Right

CHORUS
