In an on-line response to a fan sometime between 2001 and 2005, Martin Turner said of this track (quoted verbatim):
"[It] is indeed a very personal song, it contains a great deal of emotional energy that was my life at the time. I'm not a classic trained song writer [says the man who could sing music straight off the sheet as a choirboy
], my stuff is hap hazard and quirky but you can be sure it is from the heart, and this particular whacky little piece is typical of my artistic outpourings and if my memory serves me right I played all the instruments except the lead guitar. Yes I am always trying to write but my life has been crazy the last couple of years, so it's not easy".
