I've always felt this was a perfect track to sum up the rest of the album. A life's experiences (the album) wrapped up into the kind of conversation you hear while riding on the bus. Or maybe at a family reunion.
The DMB never achieved much popularity in the UK but there is lots to like about this track. I like slighty drunken pace , the fruity sax and the singers world weariness . One for bouts of 4am soul searching .
