With John and me on a song, if I come up with some lines which I know aren't really very good and I'm just hoping to fool him, I know I won't. [This song] was the best example of it. I though of the idea driving home from a concert in Southport. I had 'She was just seventeen', and then 'Beauty queen'. I knew this was rubbish, and that I'd put it down just because it rhymed. When I showed it to John, he screamed with laughter, and said, 'You're joking about that line, aren't you?' And I realised that, in fact, it was and we changed it.
