This novelty song pays tribute to (and features guest vocals from) "Captain Lou" Albano, the professional wrestler. NRBQ were briefly managed by the late showman - remembered for his colorful Hawaiian shirts and outrageous facial hair - and in 1986, the band released a bizarre collaboration album with him titled Lou and the Q. NRBQ keyboardist, Terry Adams, told Discoveries magazine that Albano was a "genius": "Working with him was a highlight of our lives. He is a genius. Those were the days when wrestling was beautiful, you know?"
Albano was unlikely friends with Cyndi Lauper and frequently featured in her music videos, most notably "Girls Just Want To Have Fun," in which he plays Lauper's father.
