Turn That Heartbeat Over Again

This song is by Steely Dan and appears on the album Can't Buy a Thrill (1972).

Original video
With stocking face I bought a gun
The plan was set, the plan was done
Looked at my watch and started for the door
Now the food here ain't so good no more
And they closed the package store

Love your mama, love your brother
Love 'em 'til they run for cover
Turn the light off, keep your shirt on
Cry a jag on me

Oh Michael, oh Jesus, you know I'm not to blame
You know my reputation for playin' a good clean game
Oh Michael, oh Jesus, I'll keep my promise when
You turn that heartbeat over again

My poison's named, you know my brand
So please make mine a double, Sam
Stir it up nice, I'll eat it right here
Yeah, this highway runs from Paraguay
And I've just come all the way

Love your mama, love your brother
Love 'em 'til they run for cover
Turn the light off, keep your shirt on
Cry a jag on me

Oh Michael, oh Jesus, you know I'm not to blame
You know my reputation for playin' a good clean game
Oh Michael, oh Jesus, I'll keep my promise when
You turn that heartbeat over again

We warned the corpse of William Wright
Not to cuss and drink all night
Ticket in hand, we saw him laid to rest
But zombie see and zombie do
He's here with me and you

Love your mama, love your brother
Love 'em 'til they run for cover
Turn the light off, keep your shirt on
Cry a jag on me

Oh Michael, oh Jesus, you know I'm not to blame
You know my reputation for playin' a good clean game
Oh Michael, oh Jesus, I'll keep my promise when
You turn that heartbeat over again
Turn that heartbeat over again
