Paul Heaton: "I'm going out with somebody I know who will love me if I'm bald or gray and I would love her in the same situation, not if she was bald or gray - obviously I would hate her. Be all right if she was overweight or whatever." (transcribed from 100 Most Annoying Songs on BBC 3)
This was used as the theme song of the British ITV television drama series Fat Friends.
