Time to sleep

Who are these children
Who scheme and run wild?
Who speak with their wings
And the way that they smile?

What are the secrets
They trace in the sky
And why do you tremble
Each time they ride by?

Who are these strangers
Who pass through the door,
Who cover your action
And go you one more?

If you're feeling lucky
You best not refuse;
It's your game, the rules
Are your own win or lose.

Donald Fagan (Steely Dan), 1975

Lovely. I'm going to search for the Katy Lied c.d. at my library.
