about

Have you ever been called darling by someone who you didn't want to call you darling? Or have you ever called someone darling who didn't want you to? This song is especially for you! And for everyone else, you might just like it anyway!

Don't Call Me Darling begins in a parody of 50's croon number, then moves through some contrasting styles - punk, classical, and then boogie-woogie. It is intended to provoke humour but it came from a place of discontent and fury, and exists to revolt against assumptions and privilege.

This has been performed numerous times, but appears here finally in a studio-recording with all the trimmings.

lyrics

Don't call me Darling...
'Cos I'm not your Darling..
If I was your Darling,
You'd know me well.
But you don't even know my name!
So just say, Hello.

Don't be so difficult,
'Cos this isn't difficult.
You made a mistake and,
You don't want to know..
Why sulk when we could be friends?
I guess, it's the end...

Don't call me Darling...
'Cos I'm not your Darling..
If I was your Darling,
You'd know me well.
But you don't even know my name!
So just say, Hello.
