I've been good to you, sexy sadie, this boy

An article in Word referred to Sexy Sadie being based on Smokey Robinson's I've Been Good To You. Here is the latter on Youtube. Not that strong a link, except thematically a little, and the first couplet, 'Look what you've done, you've made a fool out of someone'. As the comments note, there's also a chord progression similarity to This Boy, but it's hardly an unusual chord sequence.
