We touch down from last week’s entry a bit late because I was cleaning house but we’re just in time to chase after The Legend of all New Jersey creatures and are now well and truly on the dirt road of “no results could be found”. “The New Jersey Devil” was originally recorded by the Sounds of Weirdness album by the NJ band Primal Smell and that’s all that I can tell you short of trying to call up the Marks in the unlikelihood that either of them would remember. It’s about the Jersey Devil, sounds like it was recorded in a bar, and someone is making monster noises and talking like Gollum with halitosis behind the lyrics.

This really sounds like a group of fans heard about the call for songs about the magazine and NJ history, got together and wrote something really quickly, sent it in and then never did anything else. If that isn’t the case, somebody tell me. This is the internet, someone always knows something!


*garbled slurping*

The New Jersey Devil’s go swayin’ wings
The New Jersey Devil’s got nostril things
The New Jersey Devil’s really cool
The New Jersey Devil, he’s got nasty hooves
The New Jersey Devil, he’s got my soul
The New Jersey Devil, he can rock and roll

Hear [the slapping/those slapping/those flapping] wings
See those nasty things
Don’t go out that door
Feel the flaming roar

The New Jersey Devil is really alive (Alive!)
The New Jersey Devil don’t work nine to five (Five!)
The New Jersey Devil has been around
The New Jersey Devil may be in your town
Be sure to look over your shoulder at least twice a day
The New Jersey Devil never goes away

Hear [the slapping/those slapping/those flapping] wings (Devil)
See those nasty things (Growl)
There’s evil in the air (Gibberish)
The Devil’s everywhere (Gibberish)

(New Jersey, and you, perfect together)
(Watch out for danger)
(Growling and garbled slurping)

Hear [the slapping/those slapping/those flapping] wings (Devil wings)
See those nasty things (Growl)
There’s evil in the air (Oh boy)
The Devil’s everywhere (Oh yeah)

The New Jersey Devil’s go swayin’ wings
The New Jersey Devil’s got nostril things (Hiss)
The New Jersey Devil’s really cool (He’s cool)
The New Jersey Devil, he’s got nasty hooves (Nasty hooves)
The New Jersey Devil’s got all of our souls (Squawk)
The New Jersey Devil, he can rock and roll
