Big Brass Bed is an unreleased track recorded in May or June 1980, at Prince's Wayzata Home Studio in Wayzata, Minnesota (shortly after Sister, during the same set of sessions that produced the Dirty Mind album tracks). Nothing is known about the song's music or lyrics, and the song remains unreleased.

Download all the shit hop that you can for your kids, neices, nephews, and their friends also. That will prevent them from going out and buying it and will prevent some shit hop sales. Every little bit helps - Andy

It's related to Sister in some way, and I'll bet it's just an extended coda of Sister instead of a proper song.
.
My only reasoning for this is the "Broken Faucets" thread where this was listed as "Sister+ (Brass Bed)", and PrinceVault saying it was recorded very shortly after "Sister".
.
Listening to the demo versions of "Sister" from "Closer to God"/BFTP6, the little guitar riff at the end (besided sounding exactly like Sammy Hagar's "Your Love is Driving Me Crazy") has a "Big-Brass-Bed" cadence to it.
.
Of course, I probably am very very wrong smile

I am just willing to wager a guess, that the song may be about sex.

Got some kind of love for you, and I don't even know your name

I used to have a big brass bed (well it was painted white), but it was a pain in the neck!

At night when it got cold the metal frame would get really cold which was just horrible when my toes touched it!

I'd often bang my head on the metal headboard (not in the way you are thinking) and that was just horrendous!

I replaced it with a lovely upholstered white bed - much more appropriate.

cool
