Story about this misheard lyric by: Tom Fraser

Clearly the song loses the gravitas and heartfelt lyrics Sinead sincerely intended but was ravaged by paranoia that those to whom she spoke thought she was drunk (pissed in the British English sense) and so frustrated by being misunderstood. While not consistent with the narrative of the song she felt her anguish needed to be expressed frequently. Sadly the producers thought something more romantic was suitable and what was her otherwise charming Irish accent, though oft leading to the mistaken conclusion she was inebriated, was a virtue and she was helped to corne to terms with the fact the it wasn't entirely paranoia that people thought she was pissed but a whimsical misunderstanding not to get too upset about and they were soon disabused of their judgement of her sobriety by the intelligence and coherence that came through later in this and other songs and subsequent interviews.

"The Lion And The Cobra (Album)"
The cover of the American release of this album showed Sinead o'Connor in a far less aggressive pose than the cover of the international release, as record company executives thought it would be more enticing to American consumers.

In 1992, Sinead O'Connor appeared on "Saturday Night Live" and sang a rendition to Bob Marley's "War". Originaly, she was supposed to show a picture of an African Child, but instead insisted on using The Pope instead. When Sinead tore-up a picture of Pope John-Paul II, she was booed-off by the audience, some who watched the show called NBC, and others destroyed her albums as well as not play her songs.
