Haitian Divorce by Donald Fagen and Walter Becker

Babs and Clean Willie were in love they said
So in love, the preacher's face turned red
Soon everybody knew the thing was dead
He shouts. She bites
They wrangle through the night
She go crazy. Got to make a getaway

    Papa say "Oooh, No hesitastion
    No tears and no hearts breaking, no remorse"
    Oooh,Congratulations
    This is your Haitian Divorce

She takes the taxi to a good hotel
Bon marche' as far as she can tell
She drinks the zombi from the cocoa shell
She feels alright
She get it on tonight
"Mister driver, take me where the music play."

    Papa say "Oooh, No hesitastion
    No tears and no hearts breaking, no remorse"
    Oooh,Congratulations
    This is your Haitian Divorce

        At the Grotto in a greasy chair
        sits the Charlie with the lotion and the kinky hair
        When she smiled she said it all
        The band was hot so
        they danced the famous Merengue
        Now we dolly back
        Now we fade to black

Tearful reunion in the USA
Day by day those memories fade away
Some babies grow in a peculiar way
It changed, it grew
And everybody knew
Semi-mojo. "Who's this kinky so and so?"

    Papa go "Oooh, No hesitastion
    No tears and no hearts breaking, no remorse"
    Oooh,Congratulations
    This is your Haitian Divorce
