53rd & 3rd

Written by Hyman/Cummings/Colvin/Erdelyi
If you think you can, well come on man
I was a Green Beret in Viet Nam
No more of your fairy stories
'Cause I got my other worries

        53rd and 3rd
        Standing on the street
        53rd and 3rd
        I'm tryin' to turn a trick

        53rd and 3rd
        You're the one they never pick
        53rd and 3rd
        Don't it make you feel sick?

If you think you can, well come on man
I was a Green Beret in Viet Nam
No more of your fairy stories
'Cause I got my other worries

        53rd and 3rd
        Standing on the street
        53rd and 3rd
        I'm tryin' to turn a trick

        53rd and 3rd
        You're the one they never pick
        53rd and 3rd
        Don't it make you feel sick?

Then I took out my razor blade
Then I did what God forbade
Now the cops are after me
But I proved that I'm no sissy

        53rd and 3rd
        Standing on the street
        53rd and 3rd
        I'm tryin' to turn a trick

        53rd and 3rd
        You're the one they never pick
        53rd and 3rd
        Don't it make you feel sick?
