I Don’t Want to Go Home! Southside Johnny at Martell’s Tiki Bar on the Boardwalk in Pt. Pleasant Beach, New Jersey

Oh, I know that it’s getting late
But I don’t want to go home
I’m in no hurry baby time can wait
‘Cause I don’t want to go home

Listen to the man sing his song
I don’t want to go home
I don’t mind if it takes all night long
‘Cause I don’t want to go home

Listen, baby, I know we had to try
To reach up and touch the sky, baby
Whatever happened to you and I
That I don’t want to go home?

Lord, look at how all the people stare
Said I don’t want to go home
In their minds I know they’ve all been there
I don’t want to go home

I know the words to this song are real
But, oh, I don’t want to go home
I know he’s talking ‘bout the way I feel
And I don’t want to go home

Listen, baby, I know we had to try
To reach up and touch the sky, baby
Whatever happened to you and I
That I don’t want to go home?

I want to hear people laughing and having a good time
I want to know why she told me she had to go
Why did she leave me lonely?

I know that it’s time to go
But I don’t want to go home
You can play play your blues, play ‘em soft and low
‘Cause I don’t want to go home

I know the words to this song are real
But, oh, I don’t want to go home
I know he’s talking ‘bout the way I feel
And I don’t want to go home


Rex and I made our annual trip to Martell’s Tiki Bar on the Boardwalk in Pt. Pleasant Beach, NJ, last night to see our all-time favorite bar band, Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes. Southside was in top form, singing lots of our favorites and letting each of his bandmembers share the spotlight… Bobby Bandiera, the Loveman Mark Pender, Joey Stann and Eddie Manion on saxophone, and of course, La Bamba La Bamba La Bamba!

I took the photo at the top of the post with my iPhone, so it’s not such high quality, but I hope it gives you the feel for the atmosphere last night at the Tiki Bar.
