The song "Mama" - not Future Baby Mama

Can someone tell me about this song? When it was written? If on an album? Does anyone have the lyrics for it? I would like to know more about it. I thought I saw a thread for it but now can't find it.

Thank you. Peace, love and healing.

It was recorded in 1983 but never officially released or played live. It is on a few unofficial recordings, notably the Playtime collection of outtakes, but also 1983's iVault and I think one of the Purple Rush discs. Pretty sure it is the same version on all. I don't know of any lyric sheets (but there aren't many lyrics). And this is the only thread I could find about it - http://prince.org/msg/7/432408

Gimme some horns ... uh!

Oh wow. This sounds like such a sweet song. Is there ANYWHERE you can actually hear this song? Do the lyrics exist anywhere? I sure would love to hear it. This would have probably been a beautiful song in Purple Rain. Missing Prince right now.

Google. It's been on the Internet awhile.
