"Bad Sneakers" as written by Walter Carl Becker and Donald Jay Fagen....
The Push Stars---Bad Sneakers
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

[CHORUS:]
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 Pi?a 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

[CHORUS:]

    General CommentThis is a Steely Dan song, folks. It means to me that people haven't any idea who Steely Dan are, and only know their songs from the Me, Myself, and Irene soundtrack.

    General Comment*LOL* Right you are about it being a Steely Dan song, but there are some folks that know them from something other than the Me, Myself, and Irene soundtrack. Anyone that's walked down The Strip in Tuscaloosa, AL has had "Deacon Blue" blared at them from one of the local shops, all because of the song's mention of The Crimson Tide!
