  • Lyrics
  • This is a tender acoustic and piano-based duet between Doherty and Scottish singer Dot Allison, who also co-wrote the track. Babyshambles' Drew McConnell's played the stand-up bass and piano on this song.
  • Doherty explained that lyrically this was inspired by the poet Peter "Wolfman" Wolfe, who, "got with a friend and I was happy for them, but worried for her. He's like, 'I don't want to be the 'Sheepskin Tearaway.' But he is."
  • This song previously featured on Babyshambles' live DVD Up The Shambles.
