Lyrics

We hear you're leaving, that's OK
I thought our little wild time had just begun
I guess you kind of scared yourself, you turn and run
But if you have a change of heart

Only pop music worth listening too in the 80's. Need a hall of fame museum for them.

Seeing them for first time Saturday on the beach

Memories
I Really like this song!
Cool dude
great alltime classic
When I was in the Marine Corps I had a friend named Jim Tate and this was his favorite song and we would go driving down 9 mile road while stationed at Cherry Point NC, Jim died in a motorcycle accident years ago but whenever I hear this song I smile and remember him.
Rikki, don't text than number...
Who cares. , its just a great piece of the Dan at their best. .
One of my fav by the DAN the opening notes come from Horace Silvers "Song for my father" another stone cold classic!
exceptional
Yea lose that number!
bumozella

I remember when we didn't have cell phones , caller id, and answering machines...

Steely dan's uniqueness is what really sets them apart. Their unconvential musicianship and lyrics is what makes me like them.
hahaha ,I dig it n definetly rocks !

So it's not "Breaking all the rules la bamba." Boy, I've been wrong for some time.
You're kidding, right? It's about Rikki Duconet, whom Fagen met while at Bard. Look it up. Rick Derringer.. jeez.
Another opportunity to daydream.

I knew Rick Derringer played on some of their other albums but didn't know this song was about him. Kind of makes sense
It's about Rick Derringer, a guitarist they wanted to include in the band, but he declined.

Love this one...
I heard that this song is really about a guy. Is that true. If so... awesome!

Funny, I have been there. A long time ago, but there just the same. Those wild days are gone.
Reminds me of Santa Cruz...
