Lyrics by Mike Pollock, Music by Neil Sedaka

Sha la la la la la la la

Sha la la la la la la la

Sha la la la la la la la

When the day is dawning,

On a Catskills Friday morning

How I long to be there

Wife and kids all waiting for me there

Working in the City

Always leaves me flat

But the Country’s pretty,

And where my fam’ly's at

(Chorus)

Is this the way to Monticello?

Gonna give all my friends a big hello

Dreaming dreams of Monticello

Where my mishpucha waits for me

Show me the way to Monticello

Through the traffic, thick as Jell-O®

Driving up to Monticello

Where my mishpucha waits for me

Sha la la la la la la la

Sha la la la la la la la

Sha la la la la la la la

My mishpucha waits for me

There’ll be Shabbos dinner

Pot o’ cholent starting to simmer

Crawling through construction

It’s a whole meshugah production

When I hit the Quickway

Cars in every lane

And nobody’s going

I might go insane

(Chorus)

Is this the way to Monticello?

Gonna give all my friends a big hello

Dreaming dreams of Monticello

Where my mishpucha waits for me

Show me the way to Monticello

Through the traffic, thick as Jell-O®

Driving up to Monticello

Where my mishpucha waits for me

Sha la la la la la la la

Sha la la la la la la la

Sha la la la la la la la

My mishpucha waits for me

Sha la la la la la la la

Sha la la la la la la la

Sha la la la la la la la

My mishpucha waits for me

Sha la la la la la la la

Sha la la la la la la la

Sha la la la la la la la

My mishpucha waits for me
