Steely Dan is an American jazz rock band which formed in 1972. The band was formed by Donald Fagen (vocals, keyboards) and Walter Becker (guitar, bass), who met in 1967 while both attended Bard College in Annandale-on-Hudson, New York, and began a songwriting partnership shortly thereafter. Their music is characterized by dark, witty lyrical narratives, obscure lyrical allusions and complex, jazz-influenced instrumentation and chord sequences, overlying more ordinary popular song structures.

- LyricsIn 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 singin'
- LyricsYour everlasting summer you can see it fading fast
So you grab a piece of something that you think is gonna last
Well you wouldn't even know a diamond if you held it in your hand
The things you think are precious I can't understand
Are you reelin' in the years
- LyricsI've seen your picture
Your name in lights above it
This is your big debut
It's like a dream come true
So won't you smile for a camera?
- LyricsWe hear you're leavin'
I thought our little wild time
Had just begun
I guessed you kind of
- LyricsThis is the day
Of the expanding man
That shape is my shade
There where I used to stand
It seems like only yesterday
