lyrics

Philip's gonna be a rock n' roll star
we should just let him go
"I think he went out, bought himself a guitar."
"And see how his hair has grown."

Philip you don't know how lucky you are
to be free of numbers
I'm slaving away for a great Russian tzar
Just to get some bread

He went to South Asia learned to play the sitar
and dropped some acid with John and Paul
Tossed out his former works and rode that hip filmi car
all the way to repetitive microform

[Philip, Philip, Philip, Philip]
Philip's gonna be a rock n' roll star;
we should just let him go.
'I think he went out, bought himself a guitar.'
'And see how his hair has grown.'
[Coy yawning hot seal
Go to Djibouti
Lenon McCartney
Lenin and Trotsky]

Sure he's no doubt a really smart guy
but not too intellectual for the droves
His ideas aren't at all pie in the sky;
They're tangible and palatable

He has worked his ass off to get where
He is and makes no apologies for his work
He's got a sound that's uniquely his
You can recognize it a mile a way

Some say he's minimal but they should know better;
he's way beyond way beyond way beyond way beyond that
When he get's goin' your ear he does fetter
He likes to drive an idea home

Sufficiently simple in every way
And never too busy for an autograph
Saw him on the street just the other day
And said, "Hi, Phil," before he got a way

Philip's gonna be a rock n' roll star;
We should just let him go.
