Songfacts®:

  • This instrumental is a group composition, and runs to around 3 minutes. It was the B Side of "Sha La La La Lee", which was commissioned for the band by their manager, Don Arden, and which they hated. "Grow Your Own" was more thematic of where they thought they were headed, and was probably the right choice. >>
