"I've got a feeling you won't be leaving tonight."
Pretty racy stuff for 1966, as Peter Noone
sings about what is clearly a seduction. The song was written by Tony Hazzard, who also wrote the Manfred Mann hits "Ha! Ha! Said The Clown
" and "Fox On The Run
." In our interview with Hazzard
, he explained: "It was written about someone I met in my final year at university. The room, with the pictures on the wall, was real, as was the girl, but she didn't stay the night!"
Hazzard added: "The hook came from a very brief spanish guitar riff at the beginning of The Seekers' song, 'I'll Never Find Another You
.' The track starts with a 12-string riff, followed by Bruce Woodley (who later collaborated with Paul Simon) playing this oh-so-brief riff: if you cough you'll miss it, but it stuck in my head and emerged in YWBL."
