Favorite lines from Prince songs

Now, I'm new to this site and realize this topic has probably been done before. But, let everyone know your favorite lines from Prince. These are mine.

U could burn up my clothes, smash up my ride, well maybe not the ride.

And put on that wig I bought U. No, No..No, No, the reddish-brown one.

Every single day is a yellow day I'm blinded by the daisies in your yard.

Do I believe in God? Do I believe in me? Some people wanna die so they can be free.

OK, what are u gonna do...u just gonna sit there and watch?

alright...are u sure u don't wanna close your eyes?

Like a Brontosaurus she was packin' it in

Whoever is calling can't be as cute as U

Hot thing, tell them you're coming home late,
if you're coming home at all
Hot thing, tell them U found a brand new baby doll

I never thought that I could feel this way
2 fall in love was a table reserved 4 fools

I want it 2 be so good she falls back into love with me

I hate U because I love U, but I can't love U because I hate U.

Good evening. This is your pilot Prince speaking. U r flying aboard the Seduction 747

We ask that U please observe the "No Letting Go" sign. I anticipate a few turbulence along the way.

They say why am I the one who never gets to take u home?
But they don't know the things u do 2 me when we're alone

Look here Marsha, I'm not sayin' this just 2 be nasty
I sincerely wanna fuck the taste out of your mouth

I guess I shoulda known by the way u parked your car sideways that it wouldn't last

Are U wearing that Paco Rabbit or whatever U call it? Oh wow, that's dog
What? Speak up, I can't hear over that suit

I want 2 meet U, kiss U, love U, and miss U. Do it all over again, do it all over again

Minor G is the chord of pleasure, It will be played eleven measures

My boss was Mr. McGee, he told me several times that he didn't like my kind
'Cause I was a bit 2 leisurely

Soaked in banana cologne, no wonder you're all alone

We live in a world overrun by tourists tourists, 89 flowers on their back,inventors of the Accu-jack
They look at life through a pocket camera... What? No flash again?

I used 2 cry 4 Tracy because he was my only friend, those kind of cars don't pass u every day

Me and Lucy opened it when Cynthia wasn't around. Lucy cried, I almost died, U know what we found?

I guess U know me well, I don't like winter but I seem 2 get a kick out of doing U cold

We could stroll the mezzanine, buy some dirty magazine
Laugh behind it while we're eatin' ice cream

Drive me crazy, drive me all night just don't break up the connection

U can still see the picture upon the wall. One eye staring at nothing at all
The other one trying 2 focus through all your tears

Must I become naked? No image at all? Shall I remain upright? Or get down and crawl?

U led me on, led me on thinkin' U was Moses, herding sheep blindly through a fantasy

U must'a took a whole hour just 2 make up your face, baby
Closin' time, ugly lights, everybody's inspected
But U are a natural beauty unaffected, did I say an hour?
My face is red, I stand corrected.

Wait a minute now...I'm not into all that!

would it be too much trouble to include what songs those are all from? I only recognized about half.

I'll give you my heart, I'll give you my mind, I'll give you my body...I'll give you my time. - Adore

I'll make you climb the wall...Ah shit! - Let's Work

I like the entire song "Strange Relationship", because it's just a completely messed up song, classic Prince....Baby I just can't stand to see you happy, more than that I hate to see you sad...that's a strange Relationship, indeed imo.

For you naked I would dance a ballet. Would that get you off? - If I Was Your Girlfriend

Man, it's just too many to list in this little box. biggrin

Some of the ones that weren't covered yet:

I guess I should have closed my eyes when u drove me to the place where your horses run free. I felt a little ill when I saw all the pictures of the jockeys that were there before me.--Little Red Corvette

All the poets and the part-time singers always hang inside. Live music from a band plays a song called Soul Psychadelicide. The song's a year long , they had been playing four months when he walked into the place. No one seemed to care, an introverted 'this is it' look on most of their faces.--Joy in Repetition (Ok this whole song is clever)

I hear sighs (I hear sighs), I hear whispers (I hear whispers). I don't care. Between me and my Lord, u can go right on ahead and stare.--Future Soul Song

Edited to include song titles.

People call me rude

I wish we all were nude

I wish there was no black and white

Bright blue eyes staring back at me

you saying good morning

How are you? - Sticky like glue

I'll shock you with my lips.

Thats true about Joy in repetition, which reminds me. Prince's rapid delivery on this line, "was this woman he had never noticed before he lost himself in the articulated manner in which she said them." was one of the coolest delivery of a line I've ever heard.

I know! Especially when he doubles back and says, "These two words. A little bit behind the beat. I mean just enough to turn u on." The way he drags out that last line is bananas. Turned me on. wink

no one man will be ruler therefore love must rule us all

dishonesty , anger , jealousy and greed will fall

love can save us all (still would stand all time)

goodness will guide us if love is inside us

the colours are brighter , the bond is much tighter...

don't ever lose your dreams (all my dreams)

you've got to love your brother if you want to free your soul (the second coming)

"I got butter for yo muffin" also used as early as Sign O Times ("Beautiful Night" Live), maybe even sooner than that I think. Great line.
