We flew into town on Sunday, had to find a place by Monday  Tried Bridgeport and Westport, 'til we found a place that we thought would do
157 Riverside Avenue.

 Saugatuck River's flowin', Mother nature's colors were showin'
So cold, so rainy, we couldn't help feelin' blue
Not enough time, too many things to do.

She was homely, so lonely, She said, "Can I make love to you."

It's over, Miss Lena, we're leaving. Such a pleasant stay, I must say.
So nice, so easy, we hate to say goodbye to you
At 157 Riverside Avenue.
