Babylon Sisters - Lyrics by Steely Dan


Lyrics
Drive west on Sunset To the sea
Turn that jungle music down
Just until we're out of town
This is no one night stand
It's a real occasion
Close your eyes and you'll be there
It's everything they say
The end of a perfect day
Distant lights from across the bay Babylon sisters shake it
Babylon sisters shake it
So fine so young
Tell me I'm the only one Here come those Santa Ana winds again We'll jog with show folk on the sand
Drink kirschwasser from a shell
San Francisco show and tell
Well I should know by now
That it's just a spasm
Like a Sunday in T.J.
That it's cheap but it's not free
That I'm not what I used to be
And that love's not a game for three Babylon sisters shake it
Babylon sisters shake it
So fine so young
Tell me I'm the only one My friends say no don't go For that cotton candy
Son you're playing with fire
The kid will live and learn
As he watches his bridges burn
From the point of no return Babylon sisters shake it
Babylon sisters shake it
So fine so young
Tell me I'm the only one
