BARRYTOWN Lyrics

Artist: Steely Dan
Album: Pretzel Logic

I'm not one to look behind I know that times must change
But over there in Barrytown they do things very strange
And though you're not my enemy
I like things like they used to be
And though you'd like some company
I'm standing by myself
Go play with someone else
I can see by what you carry that you come from Barrytown

Don't believe I'm taken in by stories I have heard
I just read the Daily News and swear by every word
And don't think that I'm out of line
For speaking out for what is mine
I'd like to see you do just fine
But look at what you wear
And the way you cut your hair

I can see by what you carry that you come from Barrytown

In the beginning we recall that the word was hurled
Barrytown people got to be from another world

Leave me or I'll be just like the others you will meet
They won't act as kindly if they see you on the street
And don't you scream or make a shout
It's nothing you can do about
It was there where you came out
It's a special lack of grace
I can see it in your face

I can see by what you carry that you come from Barrytown

He's describing the old fuddy's that fell treatened by the hippies. Little did he know at the time, that in 2009, we would live in "Barrytown"! What a true prophet Donald is!

"It's a special lack of grace
I can see it in your face"

Sounds like the bitter little boys and girls of the new O'Barrytown.

It's about Barrytown N.Y. A town near Bard where Becker and Fagen met. Big influx of 'Moonies' in Barrytown, this song is about the intolerance of shallow people.
