Lyrics

A child in a curious phase
A man with sullen ways
Oh, I know very well how I got my name

You think you were my first love
You think you were my first love but you're wrong
You were the only one who's come and gone

When thirteen years old
Who dyed his hair gold?
Oh, I know very well, I don't need to be told

You think you were my first love
You think you were my first love but you're wrong
You were the only one who's come and gone
You were the only one who's come and gone

Artists are Vincent (Vini) Gerard Reilly & Steven Patrick Morrissey.

Reverse cover reads: Free with the first pressing of The Durutti Column album Vini Reilly. Definitely not for sale separately.

However, this was also distributed without the album.
