The song tells the story of a narrator falling for a childhood friend, called ‘Deborah’, who is more popular than he and wondering what it would be like to meet again in the year 2000, rendering it thematically consistent with the album title, “Different Class”. It is believed that the fountain referred to as the meeting place was Goodwin Fountain, located on Fargate, in Sheffield city centre. This song peaked in the UK at #7.
The song was covered by Nick Cave as a b-side for the single ‘Bad Cover Version’.
