Steely DanThe Goodbye Look

The surf was easy on the day I came to stay On this quiet island in the bay I remember a line of women all in white The laughter and the steel bands at night Now the americans are gone exept for two The embassy's been hard to reach There's been talk and lately a bit of action after dark Behind the big casino on the beach The rules are changed It's not the same It's all new players in a whole new ball game Last night I dreamed of an old lover dressed in gray I've had this fever now since yesterday Wake up darling they're knocking the colonel's standing in the sun With his stupid face the glasses and the gun I know what happens I read the book I believe I just got the goodbye look Won't you pour me a cuban breeze gretchen I know a fellow with a motor launch for hire A skinny man with two-one shoes Cause tonight they're arranging a small reception just for me Behind the big casino by the sea I know what happens I read the book I believe I just got the goodbye look
