Steely Dan – Haitian Divorce (With Lyrics)

Steely Dan – Haitian Divorce 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 CHORUS: 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 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 Semi-mojo Who’s this kinky so-and-so? Papa go CHORUS

    “Bon Marche as far as she can tell” Got me thinkin, what is Bon Marche? The Bon Marché, whose name means “a good deal” or “a good market”, was the name chosen for a department store launched in Seattle, Washington, United States, in 1890 by the Nordhoff family. The name comes from Le Bon Marché, a noted Paris retailer and one of the world’s first department stores, founded 40 years earlier.

    @brok328 One of my top five favorite bands, but “sounds the same live” ?????

  9. brok328 Says:

    @martinbill123321
    Yes. OK – recording in a studio is nice and clean, but listen to SD live – it is really them playing and singing. No session guys recording it before hand and the band miming on stage. (And I know this is the studio version of this song – I was talking about the band). It aint High School Musical or any Disney “””Artist”””

    Whoa, the guitar can talk! 😉
    I love this song…

  11. VHSback Says:

    I have heard once that playing guitar like that is really bad for your teeth :p

    It does make it an awesome song though 😀

  12. villastrangiato Says:

    Pretty ironic – very few people know who’s behind the artistry and genius of the guitar work in this song. 35 years later – other fine players like Larry Carlton have far more recognition. Dean Parks – the originator of this guitar mastery and that of many other familiar classics – remains a mystery – how does someone this good manage to avoid the world wide acclaim he deserves?

    I’ve just heard this for the first time & it’s changed everything.

    It’s now my No.1 song of all-time due to those lyrics…

    ‘At the Grotto

    In the greasy chair

    Sits the Charlie with the lotion and the kinky hair

    When she smiled, she said it all…’.

    Wonderful & much bettter than anything I’ve heard from The Beatles.

    I guess three guys just can’t appreciate a great track played by great musicians, their loss.

  22. strangeman509 Says:

  23. NStenO Says:

    They call him Clean Willie because he doesn’t do it without The Fez on.
