about

We came up with the title for this track when we were brainstorming alternative titles to "Jimmy And The Window Lickers".

Rather than treat prostitution and related terminology in the way it normally gets treated in music (looking at you, rap music), Ronan The Singer considered the lyrics in relation to this video:

lyrics

Verse 1:
Jimmy’s window hookers live in Amsterdam
Jimmy’s window hookers will leave if they can
They were brought to Amsterdam with promises of work
Now they find themselves trapped as sex workers

Chorus:
La la la la, window hookers
La la la la, window hookers
La la la la, window hookers
La la la la, window hookers

Verse 2:
Window hookers have nowhere to run
Standing in the window is not fun
They don’t know what they have done
To deserve working for such scum
Jimmy’s never been to Amsterdam
There’s nothing really that he can
Do for them, do for them
Jimmy can’t do anything.
