  • Running just 1:56 and with a very compact chorus, this song tells a story about falling in love by the soda machine at Burger King. The Ramones brand of punk rock was not so much about rebellion, but about presenting a different view. As such, their love songs were rather innocent, with endearing lines like "no one's gonna ever tear us apart cause she's my sweetheart."
