Going Insane

All together now:

 Five names that I can hardly
 Stand to hear
 Including yours and mine 
And one more chimp who isn't here
I can see the ladies talking 
How the times are getting hard
And that fearsome excavation 
On Magnolia Boulevard 

 And I'm going insane
 And I'm laughing at the frozen rain 
And I'm so alone 
Honey when they gonna send me home 

Bad sneakers and a Piña Colada 
My friend
Stompin' on the avenue
By Radio City with a
Transistor and a large
Sum of money to spend 

 You fellah, you tearin' up the street
You wear that white tuxedo
How you gonna beat the heat
Do you take me for a fool 
Do you think that I don't see
That ditch out in the valley
That they're digging just for me 

From Steely Dan's Katy Lied album. Probably their finest.
