  • Title is also the name of a 1974 Bryan Ferry solo album.
  • Bono mumbles something incomprehensible at the end.
  • The album shows a shirtless, 7-year-old boy on the cover. The American release had an alternate cover with a black and white photo of the band to avoid controversy.

  • Colin from Limerick, IrelandIts definitely German, you can make out some words, gehaben is in there and the last German word he says is gehoren. Wonder what it means
  • Mickey D. from Fremont, CaTowards the middle (near the end), the real lyrics go like...

    "...Yeah-ya-yi, yeah-yeah-hah
    She's a beauty, Hallie
    Yes we all look down, he's been had
    Love's what she's been holding..."
  • Rudi from Uk, EnglandI dont think it's Gaelic - I think it's German
  • Katie from Memphis, TnTowards the middle (near the end) of the song, Bono speaks in Gaelic. I don't believe a translation has ever been done. Also, when performing the song live, Bono would just improvise this part (in English).
