Songfacts®:

  • Written by Steven Page and Ed Robertson with lead vocals from Page, this song is about a guy whose girlfriend tells him she's late for her period and might be pregnant. This scares the hell out of him, but then she tells him she's "on time" and he celebrates like a Jerry Springer Show guest who finds out the kid isn't his.

  • Elrond47 from Hamilton, CanadaThis song is not, as it is listed, on the "Everything to Everyone" Album. It was actually a single, along with "Long Way Back Home" that ws omitted from the "Stunt" album for reasons that I am not aware of.
