About the song: The title is what I often mutter to myself – so I decided to use that for a theme. Partly a satirical jab at my own style, partly a song about the craft of songwriting itself, the joke in this comic, patter song is that, inevitably, the song itself is not so simple and tells you why. The song can be done by two or more singers who trade verses among themselves.

Gender point of view: Not relevant.
