Babs and Clean Willie were in love they said So in love the preacher's 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
[Chorus] 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 marchÂ¨Â¦ 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 Semi-mojo Who's this kinky so-and-so? Papa go

Bnw from PortlandO.K. she's pregnant, who's is it, "Who's this kinky so and so?"
Kuen-wah Cheung from BrightonAlso the first Steely Dan song I ever heard. On Radio 5. Happily I managed to record it and it took me a year or so later to discover the name of the band, and then began buying their music.
James Watts from BarnetThe first SD song I ever heard - I was playing pool in the Plough pub near Brentwood and it blew me away - what a team!
Nathe from Sl,utThis is a great description. Especially for those who are too young to remember the 70’s
