The Song is a written as a collaboration between Jem Finer and Shane MacGowan and has its roots back in 1985, however was first released as a single on 23rd Novemeber 1987 by their Band The Pogues. The song was written as a duet, with the Pogues’ singer MacGowan taking the role of the male character and singer-songwriter Kirsty MacColl the female character.

Some Interesting facts about the song via Wikipedia
