Haitian Divorce - Walter Becker, Donald Fagen
    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

    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 marché 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

    Repeat Chorus

    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
    Who's this kinky so-and-so?
    Papa go

    Repeat Chorus
