This is one of a couple of songs that have two parts, both of which are sung by Stephin Merritt on the recorded version. "The character being cuckoo could be multiple personalities," says Stephin in the 69 Love Songs booklet. In live performance, where it would be impractical for one person to sing both parts because of the lack of breathing opportunities, Claudia Gonson takes one of the parts. (The other song where this happens is Wi' Nae Wee Bairn Ye'll Me Beget.)
