The song references the 1952 film Ivanhoe.

Five years later, two separate versions appeared on the I Am A Resident CD, & LP. The CD features a version by Danny Spiteri & Jason Hallyburton, whilst the LP features a version by (the) baby born massacre.
I was watching Ivanhoe When they said the tornado Blew your big old house apart Robert Taylor was the star
You never knew why I was blue So I went to a movie after you Spread out on your feather bed With weather maps you never read
You said the east was freezing but The clouds were insignificant I never knew what made you speak Of sleet between your satin sheets
You're always calling me But I'm never needed I'm needy I'm needy I'm needing a new home
A fall in Philadelphia When you were much healthier Obstructed your recovery As yellow leaves fell from the trees
