Slower 80s song with Doot do part in the chorus

by ben

i believe the song is from the 80s, slower song with a softer male voice (similar to pet shop boys or Howard jones but not them). The song is telling a story and I believe has a lyric where someone "stopped by to say hello" and something about "on ___ street." At the end of each verse the singer says "Doot do, do doot doot do doo, doot do, do doot doot do doo."

It has some electronic-ish low tones in the background, pretty mellow song. I'm thinking mid to late 80s but I can't be absolutely certain. Remembering it being pretty new wave.

I know this is vague, but your help is appreciated!

Been driving me nuts all day. Believe it's a 70's or 80's rock band. They sing something about "love is...." (I know, very discriptive) but the end he sings.....I know,...doot, doot, doo I know mmmm I know...... reminds me of foreigner for some reason. Google sure isn't helping me solve the mystery, so maybe one of you all can! Thanks

I was actually looking for the answer to a song of the same description as the OP but it turns out to be Freur - Doot Doot as suggested by the other posters, so thanks guys. This was driving me crazy.
