I’ve had the second verse of this song “Meanwhile, Rick James…” by CAKE on repeat in my head since I first heard it last week. The lyrics are similar in style to Steely Dan’s, full of colorful phrases, a lot of which don’t make any ample amount of straightforward sense.

Making them, of course, that much more engaging.
