Short Skirt/Long Jacket (3:24)

Cover of Comfort Eagle

From Comfort Eagle and 11 other releases

Lead singer John McCrea told Rolling Stone about the line, “I want a girl with a short skirt and a long jacket”: “I think it was inspired by seeing somebody with those two oppositional fashion gestures. And that’s sort of what the song is about, directly oppositional forces housed within the same mechanism or personage. I saw this woman as trying to arrive at balance - the skirt going up and the jacket going down.” (Source Short Skirt/Long Jacket Songfacts).
