It's surprising, isn't it? It's the family side. Well, it IS true, the Stones ARE getting on, and have done it with a lot of girls and what could be surprising if you've got children, eh? At the end! Keith's had SO many, I don't know... and other girls have claimed that they've got my baby and it's not true...
This dates from the period when I had a young child, my daughter Jade, around a lot, calling me daddy and all that. It's another of our heartmelting ballads, a bit long and waffly at the end maybe, but I like it.
Yeah, maybe Loretta Lynn will cover it. Yeah, it could be country. I wonder why we didn't do it like that! Dead Flowers was country. This is quite good the way it is, though, really. Just a ballad.
I don't really think there is a single there. But a lot of people seem to like this, and everyone says it's the single... In Europe it's going to be a single, because they don't have FM radio like they do here, they don't play albums.
