Bruce Springsteen: [ addressing the crowd ] …And my Daddy said to me, he said, “Son… you’d better be going to get a haircut!” And I said, “Sorry, Pops! But tonight… I’m going drag-racing by the old abandoned ferris wheel.” [ grunting ] “Hun! Hoo! Haa! Hay!”

Bruce Springsteen: [ addressing the crowd ] …When I was 16, I got a job stacking rust at a DIRT factory! And the summer after that, I got paid to keep turtles from crossing the turnpike! Then, the NEXT summer, my friends and I worked in a drive-in movie theater with no speakers. We got paid twenty cents an hour to lean in people’s windows and tell them what was happening. It was a good job… but it wasn’t as good as rock and roll! [ grunting ] “Hun! Hoo! Haa! Hay!”
