Sheila E.'s "Cry Baby"

I actually stumbled on this a bit ago and can't help but think what a beautiful song this has turned out to be. If I imagine she's singing about Prince - wow! I think it's one of her most underrated songs and it certainly has that Paisley Park feel about it.

Baby, what happened to you and me?

It wasn't supposed to be this way

I said, baby, baby, baby

What happened to you and I and all of the promises we made?

Mmm, I don't know why you left me

I don't know why you said goodbye

I only know that since you left me

I feel so all alone, baby All I do is cry, baby

We meant so much to each other

We said we'd love one another And all I do is cry, baby

We meant so much to each other

We said we'd last forever

Did I frighten you?

No Please don't go away Hold me tight

Tell me you'll stay Tell me why you're blushing, baby

Tell me why your body shakes Thinking of the love we make

Mmm, close your eyes and listen To the pounding of my heart

I feel a fire burning

You drive me crazy, baby

And all I do is cry We meant so much to each other We said we'd love one another

Baby Touch me, hold me Touch me, squeeze me, love me, oh I need you now to wrap your arms around me Baby, baby, baby, don't you ever go Oh, I don't know why you left me

Oh, I don't know why you said goodbye

I only know that since you left me, yeah I feel so all alone baby

All I do is cry, baby

We meant so much to each other

We said we'd love one another, love one another, all I do is cry

We were so good together

We said we'd last forever

All I do is cry, cry, cry, cry, cry

All I do is cry baby

I love this song! It's actually my favorite song on the Sex Cymbal album.It's a very Prince-sounding song,isn't it? It was released as the third single from the album but received very little airplay or promotion.Such a shame,because it's an excellent song.
