At Your Inconvenience

Album: At Your Inconvenience (2011)
  • songfacts ®
  • Lyrics
  • The first single and title track from Professor Green, real name Stephen Manderson,'s second album finds him poking fun at a couple of footballers. His rhyme, "Obnoxious preposterous loony a damn nutter/if I ever see Rooney anywhere near my grandmother ah!" refers to Manchester United forward Wayne Rooney's alleged affair with an older prostitute, whilst another rap - "They want it with me like they want it with malaria/ like Wayne Bridge wants John Terry'd again"- references Chelsea captain John Terry's rumoured relationship with ex teammate Wayne Bridge's former girlfriend and mother of his son, Vanessa Perroncel.
  • Manderson told Q magazine: "The idea for the title came when I was on a video shoot for 'Coming to Get Me.' There was a sign in the bathroom that said 'At Your Convenience'. I'd had no sleep, I was tired, and I thought, You know what? Nah. It's not convenient for me. I'm not playing that game any more. I'm going to be a pain in the bum."
