Steely Dan | Haitian Divorce

This is a video clip Daniel Aragao made for this Steely Dan song. Words and music by Donald Fagen & Walter Becker. The images came from public domain images of burlesque’s dancers from the 50’s.


Babs and Clean Willie were in love they said
So in love the preachers face turned red
Soon everybody knew the thing was dead
He shouts, she bites, they wrangle through the night
She go crazy
Got to make a getaway
Papa say
Oh - no hesitation
No tears and no hearts breakin
No remorse
Oh - congratulations
This is your haitian divorce

She takes the taxi to the good hotel
Bon marché as far as she can tell
She drinks the zombie from the cocoa shell
She feels alright, she get it on tonight
Mister driver
Take me where the music play
Papa say


At the grotto
In the greasy chair
Sits the charlie with the lotion and the kinky hair
When she smiled, she said it all
The band was hot so
They danced the famous merengue
Now we dolly back
Now we fade to black

Tearful reunion in the usa
Day by day those memories fade away
Some babies grow in a peculiar way
It changed, it grew, and everybody knew
Whos this kinky so-and-so?
Papa go

I Woke to Find a Foursome

By Bill Knott

I woke to find a foursome
of sex lying atop me
as if I were a bed
on which they blended.

One was a dream
none has unless
it came as two to them—
but is it true?

Three, four:
please vomit over
the edge of the cliff,
not on it, I pleaded.

Don Quixote by Dali
