I was just sitting around and this idea came to me about doing a song about groupies. It’d be a nice idea to send it up instead of getting all serious about them, you know? So it’s just a joke track really. But there was one point where we were thinking, it really could be a serious sort of shouted rocker, where you get really mean on it, but every time we tried that – basically it’s in the wrong key to do that with, because it’s neither here nor there for singing. So we came in to the medium key. We ended up just goofing it, being silly and trying to have a laugh.

This is an absolutely amazing song and one of my favorite things Wings ever did. I learned the whole thing, I really should record it some time. It’s just hilarious. And it taught me some vocabulary – I’d never heard of “pulchritude” before this song
