have you heard, he's on his way
i've been counting down the days
finally we'll have some fun, he's got hugs for everyone
word is out, and we can't wait
things are gonna be so great
once phillipe is on the scene, everything is peachy clean

oh phillipe, oh phillipe, you bring us very special joy
dressed like a bumblebee, with your special kind of glee
oh phillipe, oh phillipe, you're a very special boy
cause you're squeaky clean, standing on the drum machine

when im sad, feeling blue
you're so rad, needing you
when im down, you come through
don't you frown, i've got you
when im sad (hugs), feeling blue (hugs)
you're so rad (hugs), needing you (hugs)
when im down (hugs), you come through (hugs)
don't you frown (hugs), i've got you (hugs!)

here comes, a special, here comes a very special
here comes, a special, here comes a very special boy

there are lots of boys around, the special ones are very rare
there aren't many to be found, we've been looking everywhere
things were starting to look great, until we hear about phillipe
we're in need of desperate cheer, don't give up hope he's almost here

oh phillipe, oh phillipe, you bring us very special joy
dressed like a bumblebee, with your special kind of glee
oh phillipe, oh phillipe, you're a very special boy
cause you're squeaky clean, standing on the drum machine

when im sad, feeling blue
you're so rad, needing you
when im down, you come through
don't you frown, i've got you
when im sad (hugs), feeling blue (hugs)
you're so rad (hugs), needing you (hugs?)
when im down (hugs), you come through (hugs)
don't you frown (hugs), i've got you (hugs!)

here comes, a special, here comes a very special
here comes, a special, here comes a very special
here comes, a special, here comes a very special boy

have you heard, he's on his way
i've been countin down the days
finally we'll have some fun, he's got hugs for everyone
oh phillipe, oh phillipe, you bring us very special joy
dressed like a bumblebee, with your special kind of glee
oh phillipe, oh phillipe, you're a very special boy
cause you're squeaky clean, standing on the drum machine (he's got lots of hugs for everyone) x2
oh phillipe, oh phillipe, you bring us very special joy
dressed like a bumblebee, with your special kind of glee (he's got lots of hugs for everyone)
oh phillipe, oh phillipe, you're a very special boy
cause you're squeaky clean, standing on the drum machine

    General CommentI didn't really think about it too hard at first, but I was listening to this song in the car with my older brother, and he thought it was about drugs. It does seem likely, if you think about it. "Hugs"? I mean, its innocence may be insanely appealing, but I still can't help but think that he may be right . . . Phillipe just might be their fun-loving drug dealer.

    General CommentThanks rubberduckie for the reference. It inspired me to look into Achewood, it is pretty cool. I couldn't find all the song's references (eg, I didn't find Phillipe dressed like a bumble bee). I did find the following:

    1. Freezepop have captured P's personality to a tee.

    2. A drum machine appears in the very first strip:

    achewood.com/…

    [although in the song P stands on the drum machine, whereas in the strip he is standing on the user's manual for the drum machine]

    3. P has a blog, which is named "Huuugs!"

    General CommentMy version of this song is 4:12 long and at 4:09 liz actually says, "Manual". It's the last thing I hear on the song.

    It goes along with the last line, "cause you're squeaky clean, standing on the drum machine...manual."

    So it does actually refer to him standing on hte drum machine manual.

    General CommentI always thought it was about ecstasy and the rave club scene. Isn't "hugs" what they call it?
    Maybe I've been spending too much time in health class.

    General Commentthis song is about a mentally disabled kid who gives good hugs. that might be why if you listen to the hugs people in the background sound really odd. why else would someone dress like a bumblebee and bel? special/special ed?

    General CommentI first heard this song about... 3 years ago, and spent about 2 1/2 years trying to figure out what it was called/ who it was by. haha. I really loved how it sounded!

    Well, about what it means.. I totally agree about the Achewood thing. tsreyb pointed out all the connections as well.
