Palisades Amusement Park, swings all day and after dark!

Today I accused Jeremy Kaye, Esq. of planning yet another vacation, this time to Palisades Amusement Park and of course the mere mention of the name immediately brought to mind that god-awful jingle of the 60’s that played on AM radio, all day (“and after dark!”) for years. Only the advent of FM radio spared my generation from, or at least mitigated, serious, permanent brain damage. I know you can’t have forgotten the lyrics but just in case early Alzheimer’s has struck …

Palisades has the rides…

Palisades has the fun…

Come On Over.

Shows and dancing are free…

so’s the parking, so gee…

Come On Over.

Palisades from coast to coast,

where a dime buys the most.

Palisades Amusement Park,

Swings all day and after dark

(bumm, baa, dumm, bumm, bummmm)

Ride the coaster… Get cool…

 In the waves in the pool.

You’ll have fun… so…

Come On Over.

 (dumm de dum da dum… dum)
