The Lyrics

This is the sixth, and probably final (for now anyway) in our parody writers series...
He's parodied the Rolling Stones you know
Here on Amiright
We've laughed at his so sick 'Thing on the Road'
He's fillin' up the Pot Noodle with canines
While he writes he tokes
He's got Big Bills and he thinks "I Can Fly"

Now we really think this Phil is swell - gotta read 'im
'Cus he's truly made us laugh with Puff in drag
Phil is swell - gotta read 'im, 'cus he's Allergic to Cats
Yeah gives us Tolkien ballads that are really rad

Oh Phil is swell - gotta read 'im, read 'im lots, we love 'im
Naughty ones are his best gonna leave Mal behind
Naughty ones - smutty ones
Naughty ones - yes those dirty ones
Phil is swell - gotta read 'im - we love you, yes we do

Phil did choose to parody 'bout his guitar
Done many of the Beatles
Still others are 'bout problem computers
He likes writing sleazy stuff 'bout sex most of all
And we know poor Phil can really sneak 'em
Right past Chucky's eyes

Now we really think this Phil is swell - gotta read 'im
'Cus he's truly made us laugh with Puff in drag
Phil is swell - gotta read 'im, 'cus he's Allergic to Cats
Yeah gives us Tolkien ballads that are really rad

Oh Phil is swell - gotta read 'im, read 'im lots, we love 'im
Naughty ones are his best gonna leave Mal behind
Naughty ones - smutty ones
Naughty ones - yes those dirty ones
Phil is swell - gotta read 'im - we love you, yes we do

(repeat chorus twice and fade)

Damn, it's a hard song to do a good parody of... full marks for trying to match that (and I haven't done THAT many smutty songs...)

Thanks, M&P

Ooops! Sorry Phil - must be something about your Message Board personality that just infers 'naughty'! :-D
Phil - May 19, 2003 - Report this comment
...to quote the eponymous hero of Tom Sharpe's "Wilt" - No, I'm implying "naughty", you're "inferring" it.... though I do have quite a sharp sense of humour in that respect. In fact, on Saturday, I'd poured a beer carelessly so that the top half was froth, and a friend said "Do you like beer with your head?"... I replied to her that that sounded perfect, but I don't think she got the joke ;-)
