Steely Dan – Hey Nineteen lyrics

Way back when in 67
I was the dandy
Of Gamma Chi
Sweet things from Boston
So young and willing
Moved down to Scarsdale
And where the hell am I

Hey Nineteen
No 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
No we can't talk at all
Please take me along
When you slide on down

The Cuervo Gold
The fine Colombian
Make tonight a wonderful thing
X3
We can't dance together
No we can't talk at all

    Oh my God. Haven't you ever run into the most amazing looking individual, much younger than yourself, and you feel that you would give everything, I mean it all, to be with, to have her. She looks like the end of the earth. But, when you try to communicate, you painfully realize that rather than the end, she's just at the beginning and you must let her go.
