Songfacts®:

  • Like a lot of the songs on Raw Like Sushi, this song hearkens back to Neneh Cherry's schooldays. It is about an adolescent girl who matures faster than all the other girls in her neighborhood, and becomes the first girl to turn the boys on.
  • Neneh Cherry's biological father is Amadu Jah, a Swedish/West African percussionist. She was brought up by her stepfather, the influential jazz trumpeter Don Cherry, who died in 1995. >>
