As with many of Costello’s previous songs, it is tricky to ascertain a particular meaning, as his lyrics are replete with such double meanings as “though you may not be an old-fashioned girl, you’re still going to get dated”.[1] However, in the liner notes for the 2002 Rhino reissue of Get Happy!!, Costello stated that the record was about women’s gossip.[2]

The most successful cover version of the song was by Dave Edmunds, to whom Costello says he donated the song “in a moment of drunken bravado.”[2][3] Released in June 1979, Edmunds’ version charted at #2 on the UK Singles Chart,[3] spending 11 weeks on the chart. It was his final top ten hit in that country,[4] and began his album Repeat When Necessary. Costello’s version, however, did see the light of day when released as the B-side of his single “I Can’t Stand Up for Falling Down”,[5] and was a fixture of the set lists for his tours for some time after it was recorded.
