Background and description

Del Rey made a homemade music video for the song in 2008 that featured clips of Del Rey herself singing along to the song, and clips of American rockstar Elvis Presley.


Methamphetamine, pink flamingo
Blue 50s queen, Blue Oyster Cove
For then a dream, why don't we go
To Coney Island?

When the hour numb, the gala's on
The record spins, blue 50s song
The veranda looks ocean-on
Neon palms sway

What's happening? Where did we go?
The Jersey Shore was long ago
As with our hopes and ocean glow
And so I bid you farewell
