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

Wow. I remember this from Dr. Demento YEARS ago. It's cool to see the vid for it. Thanks.

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.

@bacon pie & jawbone

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.
