"This is one of those examples of improvising lyrics. I set up this drum-machine pad, and I got some chords, and I started to sing into the microphone, and this word came out, which was 'sus-sussudio.' Then I went back and tried to find another word that scanned as well as 'sussudio,' and I couldn't find one, so I went back to 'sussudio.'' - Phil Collins
''The lyrics are based on this schoolboy crush on this girl at school. It's happening with my daughter now, she's eight years old and she loves this boy, but she won't tell him, like in the lyrics this boy loves her but they don't talk about it.'' - Phil Collins
''Sussudio'' was influenced by Prince, of course, and was the first time I worked with dance synth programmers." - Phil Collins

If you read Phil's comment it's about a boy who love a gal Sussido is a girl or woman . Problem is he won't tell her he loves her it can be both boy and Man both have been through it at any age but the song is around a boy LOL as Phil says his young daughter s going through the same thing she likes this boy but won't tell him probably young in school I don't know don't quote me on that but either way bless just tell him if he likes you its a win if not its ok you'll never know till you try right?
