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 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.

    General CommentExcellent Ramones tribute, better than the Ramones version when the Ramones, like Metallica, kick ass.

    It's about when Dee Dee Ramone was a man hooker on the corner of 53rd 3rd in Manhattan. At least this is according to a post on the Ramones page for this song.
