This song is based on a story by Alexandra Fuller from her early childhood in southern Africa. It was written and performed by Ben Please and Beth Porter, when Alexandra came to talk about her new book, "Cocktail Hour under the Tree of Forgetfulness" (published by Simon & Schuster), on the 4th October 2011. The song is based on her earlier book, Don't let's go to the dog's tonight', published by Picador.
