Phillip My Dear
Mighty Sparrow Lyrics


Phillip, my dear, last night I thought was you in here
Where did you go? Working for good old England,
Missing out all the action. My dear, do you know
There was a man in my bedroom wearing your shoe,
Trying on the royal costume, dipping in the royal perfume
I telling you true.
There was a man in my bedroom
Anxious for a rendezvous and I thought it was you.

He big just like you but younger
He thick just like you but stronger
He lingay like you but harder
He laylay like you but badder
A man in my bedroom
He came on the bed, doudou, and I took him for you.

The palace guards were playing hopscotch in the yard
Abandon the throne. Being with this perfect stranger
The jewel was in danger for I was alone
With a man in my bedroom loaded with brew
Yes, this malodorous urchin on top of my bed was perching like a cockatoo
A man in my bedroom
Sorry, dear, I misconstrued when I took him for you.

He big just like you but younger
He thick just like you but stronger
He lingay like you but harder
He laylay like you but badder
A man in my bedroom
He came on the bed, doudou, and I took him for you.

In Buckingham, no one respond to the alarm
So this plunderer displayed inside my boudoir
A tool made for agriculture. I stood there in awe
With a man in my bedroom, seven feet or more
He told me, "Come hither and foil." and all my good linen he soil
He was so obscene!
There was a man in my bedroom, so nasty and mean,
Singing to me, "God go save the queen!"

He big just like you but younger
He thick just like you but stronger
He lingay like you but harder
He laylay like you but badder
A man in my bedroom
He came on the bed, doudou, and I took him for you.

Evidently I've suffered great indignity from this commoner
Instead of being free in London
He should be put in a dungeon under the Tower
There was a man in my bedroom enjoying the view
This vicious, immoral scoundrel,
Son of a common mongrel, scared me through and through
There was a man in my bedroom
Your input was overdue and I thought it was you.

He big just like you but younger
He thick just like you but stronger
He lingay like you but harder
He laylay like you but badder
There was a man in my bedroom
He came on the bed, doudou, and I took him for you.

Lyrics

[Verse1)]
Phillip, my dear
Last night I thought was you in here
Where did you go?
Working for good old England
Missing out all the action
My dear, do you know?

[Chorus1)]
There was a man in my bedroom
Wearing your shoe
Trying on royal costume
Dipping in royal perfume
I telling you true
There was a man in my bedroom
Anxious for a rendezvous
And I thought it was you
He big just like you but younger
He thick just like you but stronger
He lingay like you but harder
He lay, lay like you but badder
A man in my bedroom
He came on the bed, doudou
And I took him for you

[Verse 2)]
The palacе guards
Were playing hopscotch in the yard
Abandon thе throne
Being with this perfect stranger
The jewel was in danger, for I was alone

[Chorus 2)]
With a man in my bedroom
Loaded with brew
Yes, this malodorous urchin
On top of my bed was perching
Like a cockatoo
A man in my bedroom
Sorry, dear, I misconstrued
When I took him for you
He big just like you but younger
He thick just like you but stronger
He lingay like you but harder
He lay, lay like you but badder
A man in my bedroom
He came on the bed, doudou
And I took him for you

[Verse 3)]
In Buckingham
No one respond to the alarm
So this plunderer
Displayed inside my boudoir
A tool made for agriculture
I stood there in awe

[Chorus 3)]
With a man in my bedroom
Seven feet or more
He told me, "Come hither and foil in all my good linen" he soil
He was so obscene!
There was a man in my bedroom
So nasty and mean
Singing to me, "God, go save the queen!"
He big just like you but younger
He thick just like you but stronger
He lingay like you but harder
He lay, lay like you but badder
A man in my bedroom
He came on the bed, doudou
And I took him for you

[Verse 4)]
Evidently, I've suffered great indignity
From this commoner
Instead of being free in London
He should be put in a dungeon
Under the tower

[Chorus 4)]
There was a man in my bedroom
Enjoying the view
This vicious, immoral scoundrel
Son of a common mongrel
Scared me through and through
There was a man in my bedroom
Your input was overdue
And I thought it was you
He big just like you but younger
He thick just like you but stronger
He lingay like you but harder
He lay, lay like you but badder
There was a man in my bedroom
He came on the bed, doudou
And I took him for you

Shelly Plunkett-Forbes

The genius of Sparrow, Social commentary and playing on words at its best

Winndon Lawrence

I couldn’t help but think about this song today when I heard about the Queen’s passing. I always found the story very funny: a so called intruder who got several times to ‘break in’ and even got his socks & shoes he left behind returned to him after a while. Crazy? (lol). I guess only 2 people knew the real story behind.

Callixta Joseph

Just wrote something on WhatsApp saying that when the queen heard that he'd been 'converted' to a Seventh Day Adventist, she kicked the bucket. Lol 😆😆

Makeda Alexander

Looking at the Crown on NETFLIX now..this song finally makes sense. Lol!!
