I thought it was as simple as Joe wrote it about himself but the song better suited for Mick to sing.
Yeah but the general consensus in biogs etc has always been that Joe wrote it for Mick about Mick's childhood. Mick even repeats it himself in an interview I saw recently.
There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

I mean, I imagine Mick certainly had abandonment issues too - as great as his nan and aunts were, they weren't his parents. Maybe it's about the both of them?
Yeah, there is that. I just think Joe's childhood ticks more boxes than Mick's for the song in general.
It isn’t autobiographical so no reason there isn’t a bit of Mick and Joe in there on poetic license.

Maybe it was really about Topper down in Dover! ;)
