lyrics

TOTTENVILLE TOWN
© Bob Wright
D G D
I’d like to go down to Tottenville town
A D
Tottenville down by the sea

Where the oysters I hear
G D A D
Are much sweeter there than I ever thought they’d be
A G D
They’re so fine and briny they’ll mess with your mind
G A
You’ll make love dramatically
D G D
Oh… I’d like to go down to Tottenville town
A D
Tottenville down by the sea

I’d like to go down to Tottenville town
Tottenville down by the sea
Where the houses I hear
Are much bigger there than I ever thought they’d be
They’re big and they’re sunny they cost lots of money
They keep them fastidiously
I’d like to go down to Tottenville town
Tottenville down by the sea

I’d like to go down to Tottenville town
Tottenville down by the sea
Where the people I hear
Are much nicer there than I ever thought they’d be
They’ve built them a place
At the tip of the state
And live there quite comfortably
I’d like to go down to Tottenville town
Tottenville down by the sea
