From The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than the Driver of the Screw and Whipping Cords Will Serve…

According to the Jonathan Songfacts, the song was inspired by the kindness Apple’s former boyfriend Jonathan Ames showed her during a trip to Coney Island.

APPLE: I did that because Jonathan likes his name to be spoken. He pisses me off in so many ways, but I’m still very close with him. I felt like he deserves to have a song with his name in it. I was staying in an apartment in New York and he was just starting up his show. I was writing this instrumental thing that I’d started after he had taken me to Coney Island—he takes all of his girlfriends to Coney Island. I was bitchy about it later on, but at the time he gave me this really wonderful day of simple joy and kindness
