Running time: 2:42 (single mix)
Moving Lyrics

The German sleeve shown here is identical to the UK version, except for the catalog numbers, the EMI and Electrola logos, and the color bands on the rear. (Scan courtesy of Michael Leitz.)
The A-side has a slightly different mix than the LP: it opens with Kate saying "He's here" 6 times.
