[Verse 1]
Winter has gone and Summer has come,
No skating for a while,
You save up your coin,
The crowd you will join,
For a trip to Coney Isle
To a Ball game you’ll go
Or to see a show,
And spend your good dough,
You sigh, then you say
Now a trip for a day,
Down to Coney Isle.

Down at Coney Isle,
Be in style,
Stay a while,
Ride the horses and loop the loop,
Then take a chance at the shoot the chutes,
It’s a Big time rain or shine,
Gee, its fine, Summertime,
If you talk with your eyes
Ev’ry one will be wise,
Down at Coney Isle.

[Verse 2]
When feeling blue, don’t know what to do,
Just take this tip from me,
And pack up your grip,
Then go for a trip,
To a place down by the sea,
With a nice little girl
Your own little pearl,
Your head is in a whirl,
You’re happy, content
And you’ve spent your last cent,
Down to Coney Isle
