Your Favorite Prince Lyric(s)

I love Prince's lyrics on any given song. I'm sure the dude never suffers from writers block. I often wonder how he does it. What are some of your favorites? I'll go first:

"When the blood of my love out races every one the stallions in your pack"- The Max

"Tonite we make love with only words.... Girls first, girls first"- Love/Sexy

"Like an embryo baby, don't abort this dire need for u. All my emotional ejaculate on the floor"- I Like It There

"Me and Lucy opened it when Cynthia wasn't around... Lucy cried, I almost died! You know what we found"- Starfish and Coffee


I could go on forever. Your turn.

There are so many songs in Prince's treasure trove of music where the lyrics are strikingly poetic; it's too difficult for me to select one as my favorite. That said, I have always been partial to "Dolphin". For me, this is like Prince's inner spirit warrior coming through the words as he takes a principled stand to claim and defend his birthright:

If I came back as a dolphin
Would U listen 2 me then?
Would U let me be your friend?
Would U let me in?
U can cut off all my fins
But 2 your ways I will not bend
I'll die before I let U tell me how 2 swim
And I'll come back again as a dolphin

I'm with you here. "Dolphin"'s lyrics are among his best.

My two favourite albums regarding lyrics are Around The World In A Day for its introspection and spirituality, and Diamonds And Pearls for its upbeat and individualist message.
