Album: HumbugReleased: 2009
This racy number was titled "Go-Kart" when the Monkeys debuted it with three other new songs at a gig in New Zealand's capital Wellington. The original title came from its last line, "Would you like me to build you a go-kart?"
According to The Sun newspaper, the song was inspired by frontman and songwriter Alex Turner's beloved Mini car. One Wellington audience member said: "They played four new songs. Everyone was rather surprised by one called GoKart. A pal of Alex was saying it was inspired by the love of his life - his Mini, called Floyd."
