  • Lyrics
  • This was Lynsey's follow up single to "Sugar Me" and it was a corker - in a completely different vein. It was co-written with David Jordan and reached #18 on the UK charts in December 1972. It was also a minor chart hit in Germany. >>

  • Brian from AsiaLynsey said in a radio interview in 2009 that the problem was not so much that the boyfriend wore the girl's clothes but that he looked much better in them than she did.
  • Bobby from Atlanta, GaLove this song and the fact that the BBC didnt realise it was about a cross-dressing boyfriend (very glam rock!) and so would have normally made there "censored" list. Another one they missed was Lou Reed's "Walk on the Wild Side".
