Pretty sure Emmettyville grew up on this song, which is why she swears so much. =^.^=

Billy is miming to this song & my understanding is this wasn`t shown on his show (certainly, there`s no way he would have got that many effs on air back in the 80s, even in relatively liberal NZ). Can`t believe it`s been 22 years since he died. He was a real icon in NZ.

Nice to have background info on this song. It`s a keeper, isn`t it?

lol. This is Garry Lee. I`ve got this on my mp3 player. The legend behind that song is that a Canadian dj was looking for a Canadian artist to play. He was given the tape as a demo and played that song without listening to it first. It was played during the day for a lot of people to hear. It`s what I`ve heard. If true, that`s fantastic.

Written by Gaye Delorme and released in 1980 by Gary Lee and the Showdown. Due to the 40 below you`d have guess this sucker is Canadian.

Thanks for the info. Billy T. James was a New Zealand comedian who did this song for a gag-reel or something back in `84, so it`s more comedy skit than musical performance. Never heard any other versions of it. It`s a good one.

A lot of controversy over who originally did this song. Some say Garry Lee, some say Chris LeDoux. To me this is a very poor lip sync of the song.

Couldn`t help but notice that the back up singers mics were turned off.

This is an old David Allen Coe song. Funny stuff.
