Do It Again
Steely Dan Lyrics


In the mornin' you go gunnin' for the man who stole your water
And you fire 'til he is done in but they catch you at the border
And the mourners are all singin' as they drag you by your feet
But the hangman isn't hangin' and they put you on the street

You go back, Jack, do it again, wheel turnin' 'round and 'round
You go back, Jack, do it again

When you know she's no high climber then you find your only friend
In a room with your two-timer, and you're sure you're near the end
Then you love a little wild one and she brings you only sorrow
All the time you know she's smilin' you'll be on your knees tomorrow, yeah

You go back, Jack, do it again, wheel turnin' 'round and 'round
You go back, Jack, do it again

Now you swear and kick and beg us that you're not a gamblin' man
Then you find you're back in Vegas with a handle in your hand
Your black cards can make you money so you hide them when you're able
In the land of milk and honey, you must put them on the table, yeah

You go back, Jack, do it again, wheel turnin' 'round and 'round
You go back, Jack, do it again

You go back, Jack, do it again

One of the best guitar solos no one talks about.

Gabriel Davies-Clark

100% agree brother and I’m a big fan of all music. Slash does have to be one of my favourites but shit old mate could shred

Technically an electric sitar.....but who's counting strings.

Some of us talk about it and honor it for its uniqueness and coolness and amazingness. See the Rick Beato channel!

Jimmy Page said Steely Dan had the best solos of that Era.

The Dan were masters at setting the mood with such diversity of instrumentation. The back beat of congos, cabasa, maracas, and guiro gets that smooth, laid back groove sliding underneath. Then that splashing keyboard comes in over the top with sparse guitar riffs filling in the empty spaces, oh so tastefully and masterfully. And that electric sitar line taken by the keyboards back into the verse at the break. What else needs to be said. The Dan.
