Babooshka Lyrics
What it's about: An insecure wife foolishly tests her husband's fidelity by disguising herself and attempting to seduce him. It's a look at our tendency to ruin things for ourselves.

The front sleeve shown here is the same as the UK release. The rear is unique to Portugal; it has two stamps instead of one. (Scan courtesy of Michael Leitz.)
