The thirteenth track on Sonny & Cher’s 1967 album, In Case You’re in Love, which reached a modest #53 on the charts.
The rhythm of the song is akin to a carousel waltz. An innocent little ditty about a pair of strangers who meet and are starved for company, it’s about the innate need for human contact. In the second verse, Jane is so starved for company, she talks to a tree. (The tree doesn’t talk back.)
The song appears on a number of compilations, including The Best of Sonny & Cher, I Got You Babe and Other Hits, The Singles+ and Sonny & Cher’s Greatest Hits.
