Best Lyrics

Hola Org!

So, I have a chalkboard on my fridge. I have been putting my favorite Prince lyrics up there for my family to read. Sometimes, I get lyrics back from them. It makes me sad, but, makes me happy that we do this.

So, let me know your favorite lines and I will add them to my board! 😇

I always find it interesting to hear what others think are his best lyrics. Feel free to include why you think it's the best.
And on the 7th Day, He Made ME.

You better be happy that dress is still on
I heard the rip when You sat down
Honey them hips is gone
But that's alright, I clock 'em that way
Remind me of something James used to say...
"I like 'em fat"
"I like 'em proud"
"Ya gotta have a mother for me"
Now move your big ass 'round this way
So I can work on that zipper, baby
Tonight you're a star
And I'm the big dipper

full lips, freckles, and upturned nose

"I'm just a no-name reporter, I wish I had nothing to say. Looking through my new camcorder, trying to find a crime that pays. I get hit by mortars, everywhere I go I'm loitering. Chaos and disorder ruinin' my world today!

U fall in love 2 fast and hate 2 soon
And take 4 granted the feeling’s mutual

Inspired by thread under this 1:

If ur body needs water, keep dancin'
Cuz U oughta keep the blood flowin' down 2 ur feet
Brother Maurice'll be 'round in a minute
With a bucket filled in it - squirrel meat!

Aw, sugar, I don't have to dream
Cause' you give me what I want
Girl, you know what I need
Forever until my love is through
I, I will love you (love you)
Oh, what does it take to make you see
That you're, the only one for me
I'll never, never stop loving you
I'll never, never stop wanting you
I'll never, never get enough of you
Love is forever...

What makes a man wanna rule the world? (A double A double arrogance)

Make him man enough to say he's 50-50 girl (A double A double arrogance)

What makes a man wanna curse and swear? (A double A double arrogance)

Then blame it on heaven cuz he's already there
Pimprag, tootsie pop, and a cane

What makes a man wanna play guitar? (A double A double arrogance)

Same thing that makes him wanna be a star (A double A double arrogance)

What makes him wanna see his name in lights? (A double A double arrogance)

...it was the same thing that made Eve take the 1st bite
Pimprag, tootsie pop, and a cane

Prince often had rather to the point lyrics, and even though the Gett Off lyrics are hella smart and fun, it's not really poetic, issit?

I often hark to songs like One Nite Alone, The Ballad Of Dorothy Parker, Power Fantastic and the original Old Friends 4 Sale when we talk about poetic lyrics.

I am the one that really loves u
With all my mind, body and soul
With every stroke of my brush I wanna paint a wall around u
So that u will never know

All the pain that a human has 2 go through
In a planet that's so bitter and cold
Universal love awaits u baby
All u got 2 say is that u really really really want 2 go


And we're outta here 🌠

There was a dame from London
Who insisted that he love her
Then left him 4 a real prince
From Arabia, now isn't that
A shame that sometimes money
Buys U everything and nothing
Love, it only seems 2 buy a
Terminal condition of the heart

I Would Die 4 U. I recently saw someone mention that the lyrics are about the Trinity: The Father, the Son and The Holy Spirit. Each described in one verse. I never knew that. Really great lyrics I think.

God

I'm not a woman
I'm not a man
I am something that you'll never understand
I'll never beat you
I'll never lie
And if you're evil I'll forgive you by and by

Jesus
I'm not your lover
I'm not your friend
I am something that you'll never comprehend
No need to worry
No need to cry
I'm your messiah and you're the reason why

Holy Spirit

I'm not a human
I am a dove
I'm your conscious
I am love
All I really need is to know that
You believe

Don't play me
I'm over 30 & I don't smoke weed
I put my ass away & music I've played
aint the type of stereo U're tryin to feed
Don't play me
Don't play me
I use proper English & I'm straight
I'm in the news again for paying dues my friend
And not the type of ganda U prop in my way
Don't play me

Don't play me
I've been to the mountain top & it aint what U say
Don't play me

How did I let u hypnotize me?
Did it have anything 2 do with your lips?
Did it have anything 2 do with your cool disposition?
Did it have anything 2 do with your kiss?

Where in the world did u learn 2 put your arms around me
And cause my temperature 2 rise
Sometimes I get the feeling this was all meant 2 be
Just like the sun and moon u and I

Pop life


Everybody needs a thrill


Pop life


We all got a space 2 fill


Pop life


Everybody can't be on top


But life it ain't real funky


Unless it's got that pop


Dig it

All that believe...will cleanse and purify themselves...

There was a girl in Paris...whom he sent a letter to...she never answered back and now...he's got a condition...of the heart...

Jimmy Nothing...never went to school...they made him pledge allegiance...Jimmy said it wasnt cool...nothing made Jimmy proud...now, Jimmy lives on a mushroom cloud

Don't use the magical
Mysterious, intoxicating, joy fantastic
Fascinating word called love
Unless you love me to the nine's
This is the only kind of love
That I've been dreaming of
The kind of love that takes over your
Body, mind, and soul
Love to the nine's
Baby, (to the nine's)
I want to be loved to the nine's (to the nine's)
I want to be loved, sugar (to the nine's)
I want to be loved for all time (for all time)

Oh yeah!
In France, a skinny man died of a big disease with a little name
By chance his girlfriend came across a needle and soon she did the same
At home there are seventeen-year-old boys and their idea of fun
Is being in a gang called 'The Disciples'
High on crack and totin' a machine gun
Time
Times
Hurricane Annie ripped the ceiling of a church and killed everyone inside
You turn on the telly and every other story is tellin' you somebody died
A sister killed her baby 'cause she couldn't afford to feed it
And yet we're sending people to the moon
In September, my cousin tried reefer for the very first time
Now he's doing horse, it's June, unh

Our bodies got used to each other
Now they're used to the sound
of Richie Havens' voice on the vinyl,
spinning round and round, round and round
Sometimes I feel I was born way too late
Shoulda been born on the Woodstock stage
But I'm just here, waitin', and waitin', and waitin'

I ain't got no money
I ain't like those other guys you hang around
And it's kinda funny
But they always seem to let you down
And I get discouraged
'cause I never see you anymore
And I need your love, babe yeah
That's all I'm living for, yeah
I didn't wanna pressure you, baby
But all I ever wanted to do
I wanna be your lover
I wanna be the only one that makes you come running
I wanna be your lover
I wanna turn you on, turn you out, all night long, make you shout
Oh, lover! Yeah
I wanna be the only one you come for

And the horses wonder who you are
Thunder drowns out what the lightning sees
You feel like a movie star

1999 because the metaphor is so great: the year 2000 symbolizes the end of the world, so we might as well have a party.

I guess I should've known by the way you parked your car sideways
That it wouldn't last

See, you're the kinda person that believes in makin' out once
Love 'em and leave 'em fast

I guess I must be dumb 'cuz you had a pocket full of horses
Trojan and some of them used

[Pre-Chorus 1]
But it was Saturday night, I guess that makes it all right
And you say - "What have I got to lose?"


[Chorus]
And honey, I say Little Red Corvette
Baby, you're much too fast (Oh)

Little Red Corvette
You need a love that's gonna last


[Verse 2]
I guess I should've closed my eyes when you drove me to the place
Where your horses run free
Cuz I felt a little ill when I saw all the pictures
Of the jockeys that were there before me

Believe it or not, I started too worry
I wondered if I had enough class

[Pre-Chorus 2]
But it was Saturday night, I guess that makes it all right
And you say - "Baby, have you got enough gas?"
Oh yeah!


[Chorus]
Little Red Corvette
Baby, you're much too fast (Yes you are)
Little Red Corvette
You need to find a love that's gonna last (Oh, oh)


[Verse 3]
A body like yours oughta be in jail
Cuz it's on the verge of bein' obscene

Move over, baby, gimme the keys
I'm gonna try to tame your little red love machine


[Chorus]
Little Red Corvette
Baby, you're much too fast
Little Red Corvette
Need to find a love that's gonna last, hey hey

[Chorus 2]
Little Red Corvette
Honey, you got to slow down (Got to slow down)
Little Red Corvette
Cuz if you don't, you're gonna run your little red corvette right in the ground

(Little Red Corvette)
Right down to the ground (Honey, you got to slow down)
You, you, you got to slow down
(Little Red Corvette)
You're movin' much too fast, too fast
Need to find a love that's gonna last

Sir, we know you're a little bit groggy
And you're probably going to find it hard to speak
But don't try to talk or process too much now
We just want to let you know that the medication you were given
Has put you in a suspended animation for quite some time
Well, in fact, about 45 years
But where you are now
Is a place that doesn't require time
That saying, you are completely safe
And we are here to help you
