Album: Finest Harvest of the Wurzels (1976). Charted: 3. Get the Sheet Music License This Song. songfacts ®. This song is a parody of "Una Paloma Blanca;" it was released in the UK in June 1976 Wait, why are all The Wurzels songs parodies of other songs? Well, mostly because their frontman, Adge Cutler, tragically died in a car accident in 1974. That was their songwriter, so after their song catalog was exhausted, the band turned to the Yankovich path of re-written popular pop songs. Wait, why does the band sound like they're all pirates? Brace yourself for a shock, because what typically passes for a pirate accent (especially in the US) is actually a West Country, England accent. At 80 years old, Yoko has 10 Dance hits.
