Song facts

From Wide Prairie liner notes:

When a B-side was required for the release of Seaside Woman, Linda and I whipped up this witty little ditty. Its lighthearted flavour exemplifies Linda’s attitude to life. Amongst her favourite sayings was “don’t make so much of it“.

Lyrics

Came for a weekend
Ended in a hate joke
That's when I heard
The B-Side to Seaside
More than an A-Side
Less than a C-Side
My little B-Side
B-Side to Seaside
More than an A-Side
Less than a C-Side
My little B-Side
B-Side to Seaside
Into the offside
Onto the outside
My little B-Side
B-Side to Seaside
