  • Hopes dashed to the floor
    Like shattered teenage dreams
    Boys living next door
    Are never what they seem, oooh
    A walk in the park can become a bad dream
    People are staring and following me
    This is my only escape from it all
    Watching a film or a face on the wall

    Robert De Niro's waiting
    Talking Italian
    Robert De Niro's waiting
    Talking Italian
    Robert De Niro's waiting
    Talking Italian (Talking Italian)
    Robert De Niro's waiting

    I don't need a boy
    I've got a man of steel
    Don't come any closer
    I don't wanna feel, oooh
    You're breathing, you're touching
    But nothing's for free
    I never want this to happen to me
    Don't try to change me you're wasting your time
    Now I've got something much better in mind

    Robert De Niro's waiting
    Talking Italian

    Robert De Niro's waiting
    Talk talk talk talk talk
    Talking oooh
    Talk talk talk talk talk
    Talking
    A walk in the park can become a bad dream
    People are staring and following me
    This is my only escape from it all
    Watching a film or a face on the wall

  • Micheal Corleone from NeyawkDe Nero is likely talking italian because she developed her crush on him from his role in The Godfather part 2, wherein he speaks very good Sicillian italian. It was also one of his yonger roles where he played a character that would likely be more attractive to a girl of that age than his later roles, and the movies release date coincides with the era during which the songs writer would have been young themself.
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn June 16th 1984, Bananarama performed "Robert DeNiro's Waiting" and "Cruel Summer" on 'American Bandstand'.
