Trivia: "In Brian Sweet's 1994 Steely Dan Biography Reelin' in the Years, Donald Fagen states that the lyrics are actually about time travel. Sweet also hypothesizes that the first verse was inspired by the band's distaste for touring, particularly the tours of the American South that their record label had sent them upon the previous year."
Recorded at Steely Dan's performance at the Canandaigua Musical Arts Center in Canandaigua, NY on July 23, 2011.
I would love to tour the Southland In a travelling minstrel show Yes I'd love to tour the Southland In a traveling minstrel show Yes I'm dying to be a star and make them laugh Sound just like a record on the phonograph Those days are gone forever Over a long time ago, oh yeah I have never met Napoleon But I plan to find the time I have never met Napoleon But I plan to find the time 'Cause he looks so fine upon that hill They tell me he was lonely, he's lonely still Those days are gone forever Over a long time ago, oh yeah
I stepped up on the platform The man gave me the news He said, You must be joking son Where did you get those shoes? Where did you get those shoes?
