The Garden State

Between New York and Philadelphia

There is a small piece of land.

It is only two hundred miles long

And only fifty miles wide.

This minute area is often ignored

And in the shadow of its neighboring states.

This is New Jersey.

This is the Garden State.

This is Newark

The former brewing capital of America.

This is Trenton

Where George Washington made his famous crossing.

This is Paterson

The birthplace of the silk industry.

This is Jersey City

Home of the Hudson County Political Machine.

This is Camden

The soup-making center of the nation.

This is Belmar

A world-famous beach resort.

This is Asbury Park

Home of "The Stone Pony".

This is New Brunswick

The hub of the American medicine industry.

This is Morristown

Where the Continental Army spent two Winters.

This is the Garden State.

This is the hidden treasure of the United States.

This is a tiny piece of land

With a population of over eight million.

This is the mountains.

This is the seashore.

This is the city.

This is the country.

This is the suburbs.

This is the jewel

Between New York and Philadelphia.

This is New Jersey.
