"(Someone's Always Telling You How To) Behave" is a single from Chumbawamba, different version than the song "Behave" off of their album Shhh, with full lyrics, a faster tempo and no trumpet or samples.

According to the band: "Not much loved by Southern (our then distributors), this record was a bugbear which led to Chumbawamba finally calling it quits for the band's own Agit-Prop label: unable to afford to publicise the single properly and having to argue for the distributors to release it as CD as well as vinyl, 'Behave' was released whilst the band were on tour in USA. By the time they got back to the UK it had virtually disappeared without trace. Nevertheless it remains one of Chumbawamba's favourite recordings." [1]

The line "Mickey Mouse grew up a cow" comes from the David Bowie song "Life on Mars?", with the addition of the line "you should hear the things they say about Minnie now."
