Never Gonna Happen

Album: It's Not Me, It's You (2009)

Songfacts®:

  • In this French waltz parody, Allen dismisses a suitor with scorn. She explained to The Sun January 30, 2009: "It's that, 'What am I doing here?' about an old boyfriend who I got bored of. He doesn't realize it's over and calls me up, and comes over to talk. We end up having sex and he thinks it's back on. But it's not. It's over."
