    "The Old Regime" Lyrics

    Walter Becker feat. Donald Fagen

    I heard them whispering
    I saw their eyes, their chests
    Their secret smiles
    Dance a wild new tango
    Overrun the great placenta
    And who received the first "bang, bang"?
    It was the whole goddamned gang
    What can the price for freedom be?
    The old Regime
    Is falling
    The ball and chain is gone
    You see

    No winning team
    Is calling for volunteers
    Don't hesitate
    The old regime is falling
    Who got the bottles?
    Who got the ladies' fashions and the tray?
    Did you get the radio?
    Did you get the princess' collar?
    Well don't you know I got the cheat
    So what you got you'd better keep
    But that brunette, she comes with me
    Gotta get a move on
    What's in your head?
    It's just my things left in the sand
    Now I'll drive with four wheel drive
    There in the breadbox
    Cheese in the mouths of babes is fine with me
    Yes I'm on your side
    Deal me in and do your preaching
    Well won't you carve the turkey now
    I know I've earned my share somehow
    By morning who knows where I'll be
