  • Lyrics
  • This tune is a family affair. The Blurred Lines album opens with Robin's three-year-old son, Julian, reciting the title of this song. It was also co-written by the singer's father, Alan Thicke. This wasn't the first time that the actor and game show host had created some music, having previously co-composed the theme songs of NBC sitcoms Diff'rent Strokes and The Facts of Life. Thicke Sr., who often collaborated with his then-wife Gloria Loring on his musical projects, has also penned a number of TV game show themes.
  • Alan Thicke told People magazine: "When I read some of the reviews for that particular song, they even suspected that was the one that I wrote because it was the only one without any cussing in it!"

    He added: "Robin is never shy about dropping the odd scandalous word, and being very sexual in his tunes, and the one that I was involved in had neither the sex, nor any trace of contentious dialogue!"
