Steely Dan - Ida Lee lyrics

(spoken text)
(Might say a word first, but can't make it out???) Rock 'n' roll

They're throwin' a party for big Ida Lee
The man from the skyway, the Chinaman and me
There's so much affection it's making me crazy
I've run out of reasons for keepin' it neat

Everybody's laughin'
Everybody's makin' love
Ida Lee, it's you I'm thinkin' of

Threw out the favors, the hooters and the hats
We put out the candle, oh, and then blew out the cat
Oh, my temperature's rising, we're all on the chaise lounge
Big Ida Lee, she's nowhere to be found

Everybody's laughin'
Everybody's makin' love
Ida Lee, it's you I'm thinkin' of

Everybody's laughin'
Everybody's makin' love
Ida Lee, it's you I'm thinkin' of

They open the air shaft as Ida walks in
She comes up to me and whispers, "Honey, where have you been?"
I'm stripping my gears, I'm blowing my fuse
Cause Ida Lee's giving me somewhat more than I can use

"Solo"

"Fade"
