He shoots, he, er, misses

What with 'The Fear' and its parent album It's Not Me, It's You both hitting the number 1 spot in the UK, it's fair to say Lily Allen is now back to being a bona fide pop star and not just someone who rolls out of The Ivy with her skirt tucked in her knickers.

'Not Fair' is the second single from said album, an electro-country hybrid that maintains Allen's penchant for singy-songy, almost nursery rhyme melodies. Lyrically, it deals with the pitfalls of dating what seems to be the perfect man, but in actuality he's really quite crap at the sex bit. It can come across as a bit too News Of The World kiss 'n tell (the part about lying in spunk is a bit much), but it's so catchy it doesn't really matter.

Maybe, just maybe, he had a bit to drink? Perhaps he'd had a hard day at work? Match of The Day was probably on and he didn't want to miss it? Premature ejaculation is a real problem Lily, please don't mock the afflicted (unless we're talking about speech impediments).
