    This song is about a woman using her vibrator (time to get me running) from the perspective of the sex toy. We all already know that Steely Dan is a dildo reference so it makes sense that they would write a song from a toy's perspective.

    Furthermore, lines such as (sent the maid home early)(put the lock upon the door) corroborate this.

    "When you need a little lovin' but your man is out of town.

    "You're afraid to pay the fee" (not wanting to purchase a prostitute) "So you find someone who will do it for free" (the vibrator)

    ''I'am a fool to do your dirty work'', a interesting song from the Steely Dan band that can have several meanings to wich you can interped it yourself. We all play a fool at times in life, even to the people we love around us, neighborhoods,to our country etc., but there comes a time when some of us get tired to play the part as a Shabbat's Goy for certain people on the Sabbath, wich they believe are prohibited not to do themselves, but GOD says in the TORA and the BIBLE that if you cannot do the work yourself on the Sabbath in my name [GOD] that you should not have anybody else do it for you because is disrespectful to GOD. Even our President Barack Obama is having a hard time, can you blame him, he does not want to be like Bush, or our Elvis Presley may god bless his soul to rest in peace.
