"Don't Let Me In" as written by Walter Carl Becker and Donald Jay Fagen....
I hear you found a brand new friend
Well if I try to take you back again
If I decide to make amends
Don't let me in
You know, I'd like to be inside
But don't you listen when you hear me cry
Not even just to say goodbye
Don't let me in
I say no no no no, oh no
Don't let me in
I say no no no no, oh no
Don't let me in
Don't let me in
I never wanna do you harm
Don't pay no head to all my false alarm
If I should come with pleading arms
Don't let me in
You hear it knocking on your door
You pound another heart you can't ignore
But soon it isn't there no more
[Chorus]
[Solo]
[Chorus (3x)]

    General CommentA bitter Becker/Fagen relationship themed song about someone reluctantly putting an end to an unhealthy relationship. Usually lumped in with the pre-Steely Dan recordings, but I am pretty sure this was recorded after they were an established band. "Don't Let Me In" (along with "Come Back Baby") sounds like it could have been recorded 1972-74. If it is pre-Dan, it could have been recorded in between the "Walk It Like You Talk It" soundtrack and "Can't Buy A Thrill". If that's the case, I can't figure out why they did not release this as a single, with "Come Back Baby" as the A-side instead of the miserable "Dallas"/"Sail The Waterway" single.
