Accordion-esque synths reminiscent of fairgrounds of yesteryear kick start this latest offering...and you immediately know what you're about to get. A swinging backbeat laden with all manner of infantile hooks reminds us just what Lily Allen does best - cheeky pop songs.
The lyrics, as brutally blunt as they are, dont deter from the fact that this little ditty wouldn't be out of place as a backing track for a game of pass-the-parcel at a birthday party.  And I mean that in a good way.

The ability to express the frankest of statements, in the style of what feels and sounds more like a nursery rhyme, is perhaps the boldest statement of all.
