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

Steely Dan
In the mornin' you go gunnin' for the man who stole your water
And you fire till he is done in but they catch you at the border
And the mourners are all sangin' 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, wheels turinin' '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
You go back, Jack, do it again, wheels turinin' '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
You go back, Jack, do it again, wheels turinin' 'round and 'round
You go back, Jack, do it again

Lyrics

[Instrumental intro]

[Verse 1]
In the morning you go gunning
For the man who stole your water
And you fire till he is done in
But they catch you at the border
And the mourners are all sanging
As they drag you by your feet
But the hangman isn't hanging
And they put you on the street

[Chorus]
Yeah, you go back, Jack, do it again
Wheel turning round and 'round
You go back, Jack, do it again

[Verse 2]
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 smiling
You'll be on your knees tomorrow

[Chorus]
Yeah, you go back, Jack, do it again
Wheel turning round and round
You go back, Jack, do it again

[Instrumental break]

[Verse 3]
Now you swear and kick and beg us
That you're not a gambling 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

[Outro]
Yeah, you go back, Jack, do it again
Wheel turning round and round
You go back, Jack, do it again

[Instrumental outro 5:09-5:57]

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.

My guitar teacher took half a lesson to explain why he couldn't possibly teach me how to play Steely Dan... I still can't remember what he said... He was good tho & he was right...

Selase Du

Sean Reed
