    ... it appeared to me that it's about Richard I and the sole (and not at all good) King John.

        I'm a major Steely Dan fan (saw them in concert twice) and was not familiar with this song until ten minutes ago. (I'm more plugged into the Aja/Gaucho era).

        Having done a minor amount of googling... it said on the album liner notes that the song is not political, which just proves that you can't believe anything that Donald Fagen says. :-) My take, given that the album was released in 1972, is that this song is about both Richard I and Richard Nixon.
