The song is about a tourist who is in Jamaica continuously harassed by people who want to have money from him. Possible is the story based on the experience of Justin Hayward and Eric Stewart during a vacation on Barbados.  The reggae style of the song is in line with this story. The Group 10cc plays usually no reggae, but art rock.
B-side was Nothing Can Move Me, that was not on the album.
