You can do anything you want in New York. (1:23)

SO OBVIOUSLY I'M NOT WRAPPEDREAL TIGHT EITHER.

( laughter )

( hooting )

BUT I MADE A DECISIONTO LIVE IN NEW YORK

BECAUSE YOU CAN DOANYTHING, ANYTHING

ANYTHING YOU WANT THEREAND STILL APPEAR NORMAL.

YOU GOT TO WAKE UP EARLY TO BEATTHE GUY ON MY CORNER GOING

"LEW, COME HERE,LOOK WHO'S IN MY POCKET.

"IT'S THE PRESIDENTAND HE'S ONLY THIS TALL.

WAIT, HE WENTTO THE BATHROOM IN THERE."

( laughter )

AND THIS GUY RUNS THE LIBRARY.

( laughter )

BUT IF YOU'RE SEEINGA PSYCHIATRIST

YOU'RE WASTING MONEY

BECAUSE ALL YOU GOT TO DOIS GET ON A PLANE TONIGHT

AND GET ON A SUBWAY TOMORROW

AND INEVITABLY YOU'RE GOINGTO BE SEATED NEAR SOMEONE

WHO'S PLAYING WITH HIMSELF

AND SINGING"HAPPY DAYS ARE HERE AGAIN."

AND I TELL YOU,WHEN I SEE THAT GUY

I FEEL PRETTY GOOD ABOUT MYSELF.

I THINK, GOSH,I NEVER THOUGHT OF THAT.

I'M ON THE SUBWAY EVERY DAY.

I'M UNDER A LOT OF PRESSURE

AND I NEVER THOUGHT OF JUSTPULLING OUT MY BUSKY

AND SINGING A SONG.

I'LL JOIN HIM--

WE'LL BE THE PESKYETTES.

YOU'LL SEE US ON STAR SEARCH.

HERE THEY ARE FROM THE WAIST UP,SINGING "LA BAMBA"--

THE PESKYETTES.
