  • This song was inspired by Louise Lea, the wife of Jimmy Lea, the band's bass player. She came up with the opening "Everyday" line while her husband was playing around on the piano. Inspired, he wrote a melody around it and then the band's lyricist Noddy Holder added the words. >>

  • Kirsten from New York, NyWhat does it mean "It won't even show" and "One little wave to say you'll behave"? Where/when is she supposed to wave at him? Why does he need to be assured she will "behave"? I like this song but I am confused about the details.
