If there was a Steely Dan song
About the Stanford Prison Experiment I would know. That's not the kind of thing That escapes you where I come from. I mean, I know the name of Donald Fagen's dog And Walter Becker's favorite aftershave. Do you think that if they'd recorded a song About that particular social psychological phenomenon I would be unaware? I've heard two separate covers of Do Wrong Shoes, An early tracking session of I Got The News, Derivations of "If you're feelin' lucky you just can't refuse," I know exactly which deli on 8th Avenue Walter Becker was referring to In the single show Live at Slim's encore tune More of a waltz than a twelve bar blues Of The Girl Next Door To The Methadone Clinic So yeah, motherfucker, call me a cynic But I think I would know If there was a Steely Dan song About the Stanford Prison Experiment.
