Original video
Here at Laughing Pines where the party never ends
There's a spicy new attraction on the Funway
You can scan yourself for traces of old heartaches
The details of desire shimmering, shimmering

Yowie! It's Connie Lee
At the wheel of her Shark-de-Ville
We're cruisin' at about a thousand miles an hour
But the car is standin' still

So good to hear that crazy laugh
To hear her whisper "hold me tight"
To learn to love all over again
On that warm wet April night

Swing out to Lake Nostalgia
Take Route 5 to Laughing Pines
Get off at Funway West
Drive into Springtime
Drive into Springtime

Easter Break - '66
A shack on Cape Sincere
Mad Mona bakin' gospel candy
It was a radical year

We get a little silly
And fall into microspace
It's even better this time around
With Coltrane on the K.L.H.

Swing out to Lake Nostalgia
Take Route 5 to Laughing Pines
Get off at Funway West
Drive into Springtime
Drive into Springtime

It's you and me, honey, in a crowded booth
At the Smokehouse in the Sand
I'm dragging out some bad old gag
When you touch my hand

At 5 a.m. we go out of this place
You look absurdly sweet
We hike downtown to Avenue A
Like we own the street

Swing out to Lake Nostalgia
Take Route 5 to Laughing Pines
Get off at Funway West
Drive into Springtime

Swing out to Lake Nostalgia
Take Route 5 to Laughing Pines
Get off at Funway West
Drive into Springtime
Drive into Springtime

Drive into Springtime
Drive into Springtime
Drive into Springtime
Drive into Springtime
