    Palmer originally recorded ths song as a farce, claiming to be disgusted at the idea of a 16 year old girl performing it (Shirelle, in 1984). The tune, penned by Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis of Janet Jackson fame, was re-done by Palmer who claimed to find to find it ironic when performed by a middle aged man with kids (Palmer was 36 at the time, married, and had two children). He was surprised when Island Records issued it as a single from his multi million selling RIPTIDE album, even more so when it hit the Top 10 in the UK and climbed to to #2 on the US Charts late in 1986.
