Hey nineteen That's 'retha Franklin
She don't remember The queen of soul
I know it's not meant to be insulting, and it was directed at a potential groupie, but I was 14 when that song came out, and I knew who Aretha Franklin was even before then. If Donald Fagen is suggesting that somebody five years older wouldn't have a clue who she is it almost sounds to me like he's slamming all teenagers.

Well, you wouldn't know a diamond if you held it in your hand
The things you think are precious I can't understand
The song is sung from the point of view of a man who's broken up with his girlfriend; he questions her ability to determine what is good in life.

There ain't nothing in Chicago for a monkey woman to do.
'Monkey Woman' is a racial reference toward Black Females. Is Steely Dan really racist?
