TURN THAT HEARTBEAT OVER AGAIN Lyrics

Artist: Steely Dan
Album: Can't Buy A Thrill

With stocking face I bought a gun
The plan was set the plan was done
Looked at my watch and started for the door
Now the food here ain't so good no more
And they closed the package store

CHORUS:
Love your mama, love your brother
Love 'em till they run for cover
Turn the light off, keep your shirt on
Cry a jag on me

Oh Michael Oh Jesus you know I'm not to blame
You know my reputation for playing a good clean game
Oh Michael Oh Jesus I'll keep my promise when
You turn that heartbeat over again

My poison's named you know my brand
So please make mine a double, Sam
Stir it up nice I'll eat it right here
This highway runs from Paraguay
And I've just come all the way

CHORUS

We warned the corpse of William Wright
Not to cuss and drink all night
Ticket in hand I saw him laid to rest
But zombie see and zombie do
He's here with me and you

CHORUS

Of course these lyrics make no sense. Almost none of them on this album do, that's why is was so fresh and off the hook. This is the best song on a record with all great songs.

"Zombie see and zombie do"...friggin' priceless, LOL

Do the lyrics make sense? I'm inclined to think they have specific meaning to the author[s], but indeed they are pretty opaque to everyone else. Sometimes to the point of irritation. But the lines "Oh Michael Oh Jesus I'll keep my promise when You turn that heartbeat over again" have permanent resonance for me. Wherever you are, Michael, I'm sure you are smiling when you hear those words.
