=================================


        The other night we went to see Sam's play
        doin' the things that we want to
        It was very physical it held you to the stage
        doin' the things that he wants to

        Doin' the things that he wants to

        The guy's a cowboy from some rodeo
        doin' the things that he wants to
        The girl had once loved him, but now she want to go
        doin' the things that she wants to

        Doin' the things that she wants to

        The man was bullish, the woman was a tease
        doin' the things that they want to
        They fought with their words, their bodies and their deeds
        doin' the things that they want to
        When they finished fighting, they exited the stage
        doin' the things that they want to
        I was firmly struck by the way they had behaved
        doin' the things that they want to

        Doin' the things that they want to
        hey

        It reminds me of the movies Marty made about New York
        (doin' the things that he wants to)
        Those frank and brutal movies that are so brilliant
        (doin' the things that he wants to)
        "True Love (Fool For Love?)" meet "The Raging Bull"
        (doin' the things that he wants to)
        They're very inspirational I love the things they do
        (doin' the things that he wants to)

        Doin' the things that I want to

        There's not much you hear on the radio today
        (doin' the things that we want to)
        But you can still see a movie or a play
        (doin' the things that we want to)
        Here's to Travis Bickle and here's Johnny Boy
        (doin' the things that we want to)
        Growing up in the mean streets of New York
        (doin' the things that we want to)
        I wrote this song 'cause I'd like to shake your hand
        (doin' the things that we want to)
        In a way you guys are the best friends I ever had
        (doin' the things that we want to)

        Doin' the things that we want to

        That we want to
        A true love
