The lyrics and the music are by Neil Hannon. It was written to be a B-side for the Come Home Billy Bird single. It is also to be found on the Absent Friends Companion.

“All things big and beautiful” is a play on the Anglican hymn ‘All Things Bright And Beautiful’. The backing vocals sound inspired by Radiohead’s song ‘Fitter, Happier’.
