Charted: 52

Songfacts®:

  • Speaking to the NME, Gallagher told the story of the song and explained that the lyrics don't have any particular meaning. Said the Manchester musician: "This particular track was written just at the end of the Dig Out Your Soul sessions in 2008. It was the last week of mixing the album, and me and Gem (Archer) did a little demo of this song. I think it must have been because Liam had f---ed off home and didn't tell anybody - we were in the studio, like, f---ing hell, what are we gonna do? It's a bit throwaway… it's nonsense, the words don't mean anything."
