This song is by Donald Fagen and appears on the album The Nightfly (1982) and on the box set Nightfly Trilogy (2007).

Original video
Some say that we're reckless
They say we're much too young
Tell us to stop before we've begun
We've got to hold out till graduation
Try to hang on, Maxine

While the world is sleeping
We meet at Lincoln Mall
Talk about life, the meaning of it all
Try to make sense of the suburban sprawl
Try to hang on, Maxine

Mexico City is like another world
Nice this year, they say
You'll be my señorita
In jeans and pearls
But first let's get off this highway
Off this highway

We'll move up to Manhattan
And fill the place with friends
Drive to the coast and drive right back again
One day we'll wake up, make love but till then
Try to hang on, Maxine

Move up to Manhattan
And fill the place with friends
Drive to the coast and drive right back again
One day we'll wake up, make love but till then
Try to hang on, Maxine
