The air is boiling
Sun on my back
Inside I'm frozen girl
I'm about to crack
[repeat the following lyrics]
They may fix
The weather in the world
Just like Mr. Gore said
But tell me what's to be done
Lord - 'bout the weather in my head
[end repeat]

Girl when you hurt me
When you told those lies
It's like a typhoon exploded
Behind my eyes
[repeated lyrics above]

Here comes my own Katrina
The levee comes apart
There's an ocean of misery
Floodin' my heart
[repeated lyrics above]

[lead guitar]

Seaquake by morning
Says QUAKE-TV
Rogue wave comes high
And it breaks all over me
[repeated lyrics above]

Four old hippies
Drivin' in the rain
I asked for a lift -
They said: Get used to the pain
They gonna fix
The weather in the world
Just like Mr. Gore said
But tell me what's to be done
Lord - 'bout the weather in my head

But tell me what's to be done
Lord - 'bout the weather in my head

[lead guitar]

    My OpinionThis is a typically clever song comparing the external climate change with the internal depression - weather in my head. It is a 12-bar blues with lots of choruses on lead guitar by Jon Herington. Fagen makes it topical by references to Katrina and Al Gore. I don't know who the four old hippies are unless they represent the generation that screwed the weather in the world which is going to sink some condominiums.

    My OpinionI suddenly thought that the four old hippies could be the Four Horsemen of the Apocolypse. They were supposed to be around for a global disaster, like climate change, weren't they?

    General CommentI thought he was saying, "They may fix the weather in the world / Just like mystical sex." lol
