CHARLIE FREAK (Walter Becker / Donald Fagen) Recorded by : Walter Becker; Steely Dan. Charlie freak had but one thing to call his own Three weight ounce pure golden ring no precious stone Five nights without a bite No place to lay his head And if nobody takes him in Heíll soon be dead On the street he spied my face I heard him hail In our plot of frozen space he told his tale Poor man, he showed his hand So righteous was his need And me so wise I bought his prize For chicken feed Newfound cash soon begs to smash a state of mind Close inspection fast revealed his favorite kind Poor kid, he overdid Embraced the spreading haze And while he sighed his body died In fifteen ways When I heard I grabbed a cab to where he lay íround his arm the plastic tag read d.o.a. Yes jack, I gave it back The ring I could not own Now come my friend Iíll take your hand And lead you home
