[Home]All My Little Words

Showing revision 5
Stephin Merritt relates, in the 69 Love Songs booklet, how he was contemplating his tea in his favourite East Village café — where he does much of his writing — when the line 'All the tea in China' occurred to him, and the rest of the song developed from there.

Although he later draws back from saying which songs are "true", Stephin says in the booklet that All My Little Words is one of his "true" songs, and that the word 'unboyfriendable' was used by one of his boyfriends in circumstances comparable to those in the song.
