BARRYTOWN (Walter Becker / Donald Fagen) Recorded by : Walter Becker; Ben Folds Five; Steely Dan. Iím not one to look behind I know that times must change But over there in Barrytown they do things very strange And though youíre not my enemy I like things like they used to be And though youíd like some company Iím standing by myself Go play with someone else I can see by what you carry that you come from Barrytown Donít believe Iím taken in by stories I have heard I just read the daily news and swear by every word And donít think that Iím out of line For speaking out for what is mine Iíd like to see you do just fine But look at what you wear And the way you cut your hair I can see by what you carry that you come from Barrytown In the beginning we recall that the word was hurled Barrytown people got to be from another world Leave me or Iíll be just like the others you will meet They wonít act as kindly if they see you on the street And donít you scream or make a shout Itís nothing you can do about It was there where you came out Itís a special lack of grace I can see it in your face I can see by what you carry that you come from Barrytown
