Do It Again

Steely Dan



In the mornin' you go gunnin' for the man who stole your water

And you fire till he is done in, but they catch you at the border

And the mourners are all singin' as they drag you by your feet

But the hangman isn't hangin' so they put you on the street, yeah

You go back, Jack, do it again.

Am7   Bm7      Am7                   Bm7

Wheel turnin' 'round and 'round.

          Am7  Bm7   Am7    Bm7  Em

You go back, Jack, do it again.


When you know she's no high climber then you find your only friend

In a room with your two timer and you're sure you're near the end.

Then you love a little wild one and she brings you only sorrow.

All the time you know she's smilin' you'll be on your knees tomorrow, yeah.




Now you swear and kick and beg us that you're not a gambling man.

Then you find you're back in Vegas with a handle in your hand.

Your black cards can make you money so you hide them when you're able.

In the land of milk and honey you must put them on the table, yeah.
