- That one thing I told you Göran, why do you do so much work? Sometimes why did I do that song ? Because every song I do has a meaning. Mrs. Jones had a real meaning because there was a Mrs. Jones, and haven't even told you the story about Mrs. Jones.
- Please do.
- My wife is not Mrs. Jones. And she says one thing don't call me Mrs. Jones because I'm no Mrs. Jones! And we get into that later on... Mohammed Ali introduce me to her, I leave it to that. Me and my wife had broken up and I went to Louisville, Kentucky, and he was waiting for me at the airport, and I was is distress because I didn't want to break up with my wife at that time, but he said take the night of I'm going to introduce you somebody. And so the story started to happened, and I also got picked up in pieces as we moved along. I knew you where gonna ask me that question, it's so funny because when I started to sing that song I didn't know everybody had a Mrs. Jones. The hole world had a Mrs. Jones.
