Doctor, doctor you gotta help me yeah You gotta make it right for me It seems this other man's name has been following me around And it just won't let me be You see I got this name and he's got this name too And you know they're kinda close only a blind crazy fool Would think I was him it's like saying green is blue But let me tell you brother it started being a bother When he made the cover of Time magazine
I was at this party in the well-heeled hills Just the other night Her name was Shelly I introduced myself She just smiled and said "all right" Well we got talkin' and drinkin' wine And she said she liked my music thought it was fine She said, "Let's make love, your place or mine," And in the middle of the passion I was on the borderline When she called out a name but it wasn't mine
She called me Bruce, Bruce I can hear her calling Bruce, Bruce I can hear her calling Bruce, Bruce I can hear her My name is Rick I'm gonna stick it to ya babe
And there's this kid walking carrying a guitar You know I told him that I played He asked me my name you know I told him I said it plain as clear as day Well he seemed really, clearly, sincerely impressed And as he pulled a piece of paper for me to sign from his vest He said, "I thought Born To Run was one of your best." Aww wait a minute man, who do you think I am? He answered, "Mr. Springsteen, your a famous man."
He called me Bruce, Bruce I can hear him calling Bruce, Bruce He called me Bruce, Bruce I can hear him My name is Richard gonna hit it to you babe
