This is an angry song directed to a lover.
The line, "Turn up The Eagles; the neighbors are listening" was inspired by Walter Becker's girlfriend, who loved the Eagles. A year later, the Eagles returned the favor on "Hotel California" with the line, "They stab it with their steely knives but they just can't kill the beast." (thanks, Seth - Brooklyn, NY)
