Jake La Motta:
I remember those cheers / They still ring in my ears / After years, they remain in my thoughts. / Go to one night / I took off my robe, and what'd I do? I forgot to wear shorts. / I recall every fall / Every hook, every jab / The worst way a guy can...
In Jake's nightclub in 1956, background music is Frank Sinatra's 1957 recording of Come Fly With Me.
