"Reelin’ in the Years" by Steely Dan
The Daily Dan
Your everlasting summer
You can see it fading fast
When my alarm went off at 5AM this morning, I knew my summer hadn’t faded fast; it had ended abruptly. Add to that the band “practicing” and “rehearsing” (clever euphemisms for playing the same things over and over again, poorly) in the auditorium across from my office - an activity I am told will last all week. I wonder if they will at least play some Steely Dan?
You been telling me you’re a genius since you were 17
In all the time I’ve known you, I still don’t know what you mean
One of my top three favorite lyrics from a Steely Dan song.
