Steely Dan - Hey Nineteen

Way back when, in ’67
I was a dandy Gamma Chi
Sweet things from Boston
So young and willing
Moved down to Scarsdale
Where the hell am I?

Hey Nineteen
No, we can’t dance together
(We can’t dance together)
No, we can’t talk at all
Please take me along
When you slide on down

Hey Nineteen
That’s ‘Retha Franklin
She don’t remember the Queen of Soul
It’s hard times befallen
The sole survivors
She thinks I’m crazy
But I’m just growing old

Hey Nineteen
No, we got nothing in common
(We can’t dance together)
No, we can’t talk at all
Please take me along
When you slide on down
