MAXINE Lyrics

Artist: Steely Dan

Some say that we're reckless
They say we're much too young
Tell us to stop before we've begun
We've got to hold out till graduation
Try to hang on Maxine

While the world is sleeping
We meet at Lincoln Mall
Talk about life the meaning of it all
Try to make sense of the suburban sprawl
Try to hang on Maxine

Mexico City is like another world
Nice this year they say
You'll be my senorita
In jeans and pearls
But first let's get off this highway

We'll move up to Manhattan
And fill the place with friends
Drive to the coast and drive right back again
One day we'll wake up, make love but 'til then
Try to hang on Maxine

I liked this song from my first hearing. Love to sing it. It's a tribute to the Four Freshmen and the Hi-Lo's. Yeah, the Manhanttan Transfer could do a nice job on it too. Michael Brecker's solo is strong and rises to a high point, just in time for the vocals to come back in. Would love to hear this one done with voices only.
