Like many B-sides it has never been played live, although it is a nice song. I wonder if Neil Hannon does everything he says in the song. Rolos, Polos and Dairylea are registered names of sweets and an offie is an off-licence.

As far as voices are concerned in the song, the middle part is quite difficult to follow because there are several backing vocals, all made by Neil, of course. We tried to transcript them as faithfully as possible.
