  • Several songs were cut w/ Ward attempting to sing (including this single's b-side, Ward's infamous trashing of "Orange Colored Sky"). However, the results were so ghastly that Zappa got frustrated and came up w/ the idea of making this song a recitation. Ward agreed. (sav-man)
  • Frank Zappa and The Mothers of Invention are said to have provided some of the instrumentation on this song; Frank's voice can be heard (barely) towards the end (among the crowd of people talking). (sav-man)
  • This song got some minimal airplay in the Chicago area, but was yanked from the playlists when several morality police-type groups complained that it was too "suggestive" (particularly the part where the girl writing says she wants to give Ward "breakfast in bed")! (sav-man)
  • Spoken-word piece by TV's "Robin The Boy Wonder" (from the then-popular "Batman" show) was spliced together by Ward and Frank Zappa from actual fan letters that Ward had received. (sav-man)
  • Song Lyrics:
    (Boy Wonder I love you)
    (Boy Wonder I love you oooh oooh oooh)

    Hi kids, It's me your pal the Boy Wonder.
    Taking this opportunity to catch up on my fan mail
    Even as a boy wonder, it's really hard to read all the tons of mail I get.
    Here is a happy letter from someone just about your age.

    Dear, cute, wonderful, fabulous, magnificent, exquisite Boy Wonder.
    A cold chill runs up my spine every time I see you sock a villain.
    And oh, how I cry when your even scratched.
    Please don't send me a mimeograph copy of interesting facts about you.
    I want your hand writing.
    I have a whole wall of my room dedicated to you.
    Oh Boy Wonder, I'm making a gum wrapper chain to symbolize my love for you.
    It's going to be as long as I am tall, and I'm 5ft 10in in stocking feet.
    Please Boy Wonder, Please come next Saturday and sleep for a week or two.
    I will feed you breakfast in bed. I will make your bed for you.
    And I like you so much that I want you spend the whole summer with me.
    I hope you know this is a girl writing.
