Shoot the Breeze
by Bette Midler and Dustin Hoffman
sung in the special "Ol' Red Hair Is Back"

One day I walked under city skies.
I heard an old radio nearby.
A song so full of long ago.
A song they once called "Dusty's Tune"
They called it "Dustin's Tune"

Well, how ya doin'?
Gee, you're lookin' good.
I heard you moved
From the neighborhood.
Your Mom came by
She was singing her blues.
I'm glad you called,
I got nothin' to do.
C'mon, let's shoot the breeze.

Do you remember when we were ten?
Out to start on that great adventure!
That's how they refer to life.
The breeze said I'd be someone's wife.
I'd like to shoot the breeze.

Fairy tales upon the breeze,
All about white knights and dragons.
In perhaps a day or two
I'll be going on the wagon.

It's not my man or the kids, you see.
To tell the truth it's a mystery
Why I'm so damned dissatisfied!
The breeze says no one's home inside me.
No one knows what's here inside me.
No one, no one, no one knows!
C'mon, let's shoot the breeze!
C'mon, c'mon, c'mon
You and me, friend, we gonna,
Sit right down here, we gonna,
We're gonna talk it over.
How we love to, love to, love to
Shoot the breeze.

Thanks to Brian: BetteLyrics
