Artist: Steely Dan
Album: Gaucho

Drive west on Sunset
To the sea
Turn that jungle music down
Just until we're out of town
This is no one night stand
It's a real occasion
Close your eyes and you'll be there
It's everything they say
The end of a perfect day
Distant lights from across the bay
Babylon sisters shake it
Babylon sisters shake it
So fine so young
Tell me I'm the only one

Here come those Santa Ana winds again

We'll jog with show folk on the sand
Drink kirschwasser from a shell
San Francisco show and tell
Well I should know by now
That it's just a spasm
Like a Sunday in T.J.
That it's cheap but it's not free
That I'm not what I used to be
And that love's not a game for three

Babylon sisters shake it
Babylon sisters shake it
So fine so young
Tell me I'm the only one

My friends say no don't go
For that cotton candy
Son you're playing with fire
The kid will live and learn
As he watches his bridges burn
From the point of no return

Babylon sisters shake it
Babylon sisters shake it
So fine so young
Tell me I'm the only one

Steely dan are one of the greatest bands of their genre.True geniuses of the written song and the use of an instrument.

I could listen to this song over and over for days. Each time I'd discover something new and cool about it.

If I'm not their biggest fan, I am a TIGHT second. I am always in awe at their jazz styles with unbelievable lyrics. Yeah man

My dad got me a tape of pretzel logic when i was 15. I've been hooked for the past 31 years.

Twenty-some years ago, when shopping for audio speakers, I brought along this CD. The production values on Hey Nineteen were, at the time, second to none (and still shame anything heard on an iPod). One audiophile/salesman insisted on hearing the song to the end.
