It was issued as an international single. Most American DJs refused to play it, either on moral grounds or because they thought it was some sort of joke - they played the B-side instead. I enjoyed it by the third listen, Nan says it is so daft it is daring.

The predicament for solo McC - what does a man do, when he can do anything ... but nothing will ever be good enough? He starts by lowering expectations, then slowly building in fortitude, culminating in a race-relations themed duet with Steven Wonder.

i think this is the offish rendish, visuals taken from the Flip Wilson Variety Hour





Was it all a goof?  No.  McC explains that, to him, the love 'tween Mary & Lamb was a "heavy trip."

another controversial move in the early days of Brand Goober Lane was McC's decision to mandate some opuses of his New Catalogue be composed in a magical gibberish language intelligible only to the pure of heart and youngish of spleen
