The catchy hook and melody in this song, "Take a look at my girlfriend, she's the only once I got - not much of a girlfriend, I never seem to get a lot" is based on the song "Breakfast in America" written by Roger Hodgson. Here's a YouTube video if you'd like to hear it - (youtube.com/watch?v=Ir7-R8WdtcM)
"Breakfast in America" is the title track of Supertramp's best-selling album, which topped world charts for a year!! Roger's touring the US and Canada Oct 28-Nov 18 with his supremely talented band and I'll actually be catching a few shows myself!! For a list of dates check out his official facebook page
