Douglas Harper's Etymology Dictionary
joey

"young kangaroo," 1839, sometimes said to be from a native Australian word joè, but more recently often said to be of unknown origin. Perhaps an extended use of Joey, the familiar form of the male proper name Joseph, for which Partridge lists many common or coarse meanings in 20c. Australian slang. Farmer & Henley ("Slang and Its Analogues") quote an 1887 article on "Australian Colloquialisms":\n\nJOEY is a familiar name for anything young or small, and is applied indifferently to a puppy, or a kitten, or a child, while a WOOD-AND-WATER-JOEY is a hanger about hotels and a doer of odd jobs.\n\n

Wiktionary
joey

n. 1 The immature young of a marsupial, notably a junior kangaroo, but also a young wallaby, koala, etc. 2 The shorter word whose letters can be found within a kangaroo word.

Joey (Concrete Blonde song)

"Joey" is the ninth track from Concrete Blonde's third and most successful album Bloodletting. The song was released in 1990 and was sung by Johnette Napolitano. One interpretation is that the song is about a man who is in love with alcohol. Johnette Napolitano mentioned in her book, Rough Mix, that the song was written about her relationship with Marc Moreland of the band Wall of Voodoo (who would eventually die of liver failure).

It became the group's biggest hit, spending four weeks atop the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart, and crossing over to pop radio, reaching #19 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart; it remains their only charting song on the latter chart.

The song was written in the cab on the way to the studio; it was the last vocal recorded on the album due to Napolitano's reluctance to record the lyrics, which were hard for her to deal with.
