Testo My Old School – Steely Dan

By |

Testo della canzone My Old School degli Steely Dan
Album: Countdown To Ecstasy
I remember the thirty five sweet goodbyes
When you put me on the Wolverine up in Annandale
It was still September when your daddy was quite surprised
To find you with the working girls in the county jail

I was smoking with the boys upstairs
When I heard about the whole affair
I said Oh no William and Mary won’t do
Well I did not think the girl could be so cruel
And I’m never going back to my old school

Oleander growing outside her door
Soon they’re gonna be in bloom up in Annandale
I can’t stand her doing what she did before
Living like a gypsy queen in a fairy tale

Well I hear the whistle but I can’t go
I’m gonna take her down to Mexico
She said Oh no Guadalajara won’t do
Well I did not think the girl could be so cruel
And I’m never going back to my old school

[Solos]

California tumbles into the sea
That’ll be the day I go back to Annandale
Tried to warn her about Chino and Buddy Gee
But I can’t seem to get to you through the US mail

Well I hear the whistle but I can’t go
I’m gonna take her down to Mexico
She said Oh no Guadalajara won’t do
Well I did not think the girl could be so cruel
And I’m never going back to my old school

[Solos to fade
