May 1969 - Offical Senior Cut Day (Vailsburg H.S)

by Old Newark Memory Submission


All the Greasers - Nicky Newarker - Nut Jobs went down the shore via Rt. 35 in all sorts of cars GP - Thunderbirds - Monza Spiders Ect
(About 20 cars in all went down)

It was truly a blast - Food fights between cars while driving
Picking up road cones - all sorts of "Shenanigans and Antics"
We were the Wild Ones in cars.

Stopped at a little quaint Dinner by Asbury Park - In piled in all the Nickys
The poor innocent waitress never got hit on by so many hoods -
It was funny. The antics - lines would have made a great scene in a movie.
We left her spinning as we loaded the counter with a cup full of dollars
(I'm sure she will never forget the day she meet the Boy's from Newark)

Then it was on to Sea Side Heights - An all out assault by the Newark Greaser.
All girls escorted or not were hit on.

All in fun - we represent Newark in Style that Day
We Ruled - We were the In Crowd

The song says it all "The In Crowd"

I'm in with the "In" crowd
I go where the "In" crowd goes
And I know what the "In" crowd knows (How to have fun!)
Any time of the year, don't you hear? (How to have fun!)
Dressin' fine, makin' time
We breeze up and down the street
We get respect from people we meet
They make way day or night
They know the "In" crowd is out of sight

I'm in with the "In" crowd
I know ev'ry latest dance
When you're in with "In" crowd
It's easy to find romance (And we work out!)
At a spot where the beat's really hot (And we work out!)
If it's square we ain't there
We make ev'ry minute count
Our share is always the biggest amount
Other guys imitate us
But the original's still the greatest

We got our own way of walkin
We got our way of talkin' (Gotta have fun!)
Any time of the year, don't you hear (Gotta have fun!)
Spendin' cash, talkin' trash
Girl, I'll show you a real good time
Come on with me and leave your troubles behind
I don't care where you've been
You ain't been nowhere till you been in with "In" crowd

Those were the Days................................................
