Note: Bruce would return to this work-in-progress in 1981, during a break in The River Tour. Springsteen asks an unidentified person if it is "time to eat?" at the end of the take. Not related to the Claudine Clark song with the same title which Springsteen covered in 1975. V1 recorded at The Power Station on October 8, 1979, and has the melody of "I Wanna Marry You". The vocal found in the official release is vintage, and includes lyrics also found in "Point Blank" and some which Springsteen would later use for his adaptation of Tom Waits' "Jersey Girl". V3 Recorded at Springsteen’s home in Colts Neck, NJ from late March to early April, 1981 rockabilly style, does not bear much resemblance to the slower take from The River sessions.
