"One More Minute," is in the style of Elvis Presley and doo-wop groups of the Fifties, but it's not modeled after any particular song. According to the liner notes of Permanent Record, Yankovic was preparing to write songs for Dare to Be Stupid when his then-girlfriend broke up with him. In order to mentally deal with the heartbreak, Yankovic decided to write a humorous song to express his anger, eventually into "One More Minute". Weird Al is often completely G-rated, but there's an actual masturbation reference in this one: "I'm stranded all alone in the gas station of love/And I have to use the self-service pumps."

When I was younger, I loved performing this song in front of my mom.  Little did I know at the time about that one special line in the song..... very awkward now....
