  • This was written as a children's song.
  • Jeff has said "I was depressed and my life was completely crumbling around me. And then I wrote that song and got really happy for five minutes. And then I put it down on my answering machine so I wouldn't forget it. And then I got terribly depressed again. And my life began crumbling again."
  • This song is on more releases than any other song by Jeff. Each release is a separate version of the song.
