Here At The Western World Lyrics

Artist: Steely Dan
Album: Greatest Hits

Down at the Lido they welcome you
With sausage and beer,
Klaus and the Rooster have been there too,
But lately he spends his time here.

Hanging with the mayor and all his friends
And nobody cares,
Where the sailor shuts out the sunrise
Blacked out on the stairs

Knock twice, rap with your cane
Feels nice, you're out of the rain
We got your skinny girl
Here at the Western World

Ruthie will give you the silver key
To open the red door:
Lay down your Jackson and you will see
The sweetness you've been crying for

In the night you hide from the madman
You're longing to be
But it all comes out on the inside


(Repeat last verse and chorus)

Few people have ever described a visit to a House of Prostitution with such artful, beautiful sadness. It's that madman inside that must be kept at bay.
