Actually, that was originally written and sung by the late, great Kirsty MacColl (a British singer/songwriter who was the daughter of folk legend Ewan MacColl and wife of record producer Steve Lillywhite). Tracey Ullman's version hit the charts about two years after Kirsty MacColl's almost identical-sounding single tanked (timing, I suppose...). I own both versions on 45 RPM 7" vinyl. Lovely song (written as an homage to Paul McCartney and employing a very Macca-esque melody and arrangement...).

Kirsty MacColl was killed by a drunken American tourist who ran her over with a speedboat as she swam off of the Mexican coast with her children at Christmas, 2001; a tragedy and a damned shame.
