  • A leper is someone who suffers from leprosy, an infectious disease sometimes known as Hansen's disease. A leper colony is a place they would be quarantined in to avoid spreading the disease.
  • The song is filled with wordplays of anatomical idioms, playing on the idea that leprosy causes people's bodies to fall apart (it doesn't).
  • The song is based around the Bo Diddley beat, a particular rhythm popularized by bluesman Bo Diddley in the 1950s and used in countless rock and blues songs.
