  • Lyrics
  • This is a swipe at Harvey's former boyfriend, Joe Dilworth, who is a drummer, photographer and German motorbike enthusiast.

    "But all he's speaking and all he sees.
    Is just his motorbike, not me."

    The pair later worked together when Dilworth played drums on "Working For The Man" from Harvey's 1995 To Bring You My Love set.
  • A live version can be found in the long-form video Reeling with PJ Harvey, released in 1994.
