Artist: Steely Dan
Album: Aja

In your Lark
You're a mark
You're a screamer
You know
How to hustle
Is a rare
I don't care
Yeah you
Got the muscle
I got the news

Yes dear
How did you know
Can't you see our love will grow

Take it
In your hand
All the sirens
And the band
Get to bendin' my ear
Was I to know
About the warm
Soulful secret
You been keepin' for years
I got the news

Slow down I'll tell you when
I may never walk again

Broadway Duchess
Darling if you only knew
Half as much as
Everybody thinks you do
What I hear
May be true
I would still be proud
To know you

Spanish kissin'
See it glisten
You came ragin'
Love rampagin'
I got the news

Yes dear
How did you know
Can't you see our love will grow

Is this song about a guy who maybe had a crush when he was a young boy on a girl like a neighbor...and then finally gets to sleep with her?

Go see Ray Charles' 'I've got the News' lyrics...then apply them to these lyrics....that night be a clue.

Definitely about illicit love...maybe she likes black men, her 'Soulful Secret'?

Spanish kissing...a French kiss with a little suction on the withdrawl of the tongue...I think less the youthful lad with a crush, and more a cuckold husband, a theme in more than one Steely Dan Song.

"Spanish kissin' See it glisten"

It ain't about 'french kissing'. It's cunnilingus.

This whole song is about S E X.

"I may never walk again!" Yeah...I knew her too!

Try & guess . . .
"you know how to hustle"
"yea, you got the muscle"
"take it in your hand"
"how was I to know about the warm soulful secret"
"Spanish kissin'"
"see it glisten"
OK, Got it now? No?
"slow down. I'll tell you 'when'"
"I may never walk again"
How 'bout now? Sheeesh!!

Probably about a male homosexual encounter.

DEFINITELY talking about receiving fellatio.

"What I hear
May be true
I would still be proud
To know you"

Perhaps "know" in the biblical sense?
