Fat man sitting on a little stool
Takes the money from my hand while his eyes take a walk all over you
Hands me the ticket smiles and whispers good luck
Cuddle up angel cuddle up my little dove
We'll ride down baby into this tunnel of love

I can feel the soft silk of your blouse
And them soft thrills in our little fun house
Then the lights go out and it's just the three of us
You me and all that stuff we're so scared of
Gotta ride down baby into this tunnel of love

There's a crazy mirror showing us both in 5-D
I'm laughing at you you're laughing at me
There's a room of shadows that gets so dark brother
It's easy for two people to lose each other in this tunnel of love

it ought to be easy ought to be simple enough
Man meets woman and they fall in love
But the house is haunted and the ride gets rough
And you've got to learn to live with what you can't rise above if you want to ride on down in through this tunnel of love

Why do I admire Mr Springsteen?  Even with all the macho, Jersey tough guy attitude in his lyrics, he comes up with this line:

Then the lights go out and it's just the three of us; you me and all that stuff we're so scared of.

This entire album is great.

That encapsulates every roadie working every amusement park ever. Poetry.

Great song, great album.
Lots of ratings and pretty high for a never played tune.  Maybe some day ...  This song is the essence of Springsteen, The Boardwalk on The Jersey Shore.  Its all there.

This song is soooo good for the ears...

Atlantic City is another great Springsteen song...
