Lamest Prince lyrics you've ever heard?

I always thought that "If I gave you Diamond and Pearls...Would you be a happy boy or a girl?" were among the laziest lyrics he had ever written.

Also, "So I can't go..,like a jerk" on The Future doesn't even make sense. Unless jerk means something other than the obvious.

Pretty much all of "Wherever U Go, Whatever U Do," but this in particular:

Keep on smilin' - every girl and boy
Remember when U were children U had toys

What the hell does that have to do with anything?

Give a duck? Really? When does he say that stupid shit?

Mine would be the "Digital age" line in somewhere here on earth, if only for the fact that noone uses pagers anymore, exept for drug dealers and doctors.

Good one. I dig that song, but that lyric is just lame.


I'll add the phrase 'future baby mama' (technically not a lyric, but lame nonetheless).

I have to agree. Dolphin was a pretty lame song.

ABSOLUTELY!! It makes the song sound like he wrote it in 1987. Might be more timely if he says "text"... but again, it's another instance where in 10 years we're gonna be like "what the hell? Page?" Things are always better when his lyrics didn't reference current technology or people (I'm looking at YOU, Ronnie Talk To Russia!)

If he didnt want to cuss he should have just stopped talking and skipped the word like how some singers do when they are on tv or some situation where they cant cuss.

"There's a theocratic order"

"Don't look now, but there's a river of blood. You must have been a virgin; what am I guilty of?"

"When we're making love, it's like surgery."

"If I gave you diamonds and pearls, would you be a happy boy or girl?"

"I'm gonna put her on the same diet Missy went on. You know she eat too much."

"Don't you wanna go get saved?"

"Come on, baby, I want all your germs"

"I wanna get hot wit U
Get U underneath the cream and ooh
Get U doin' things U thought U'd never do
Make U suck your tongue and say, "Ooh!"

"We don't give a duck what you got on"

"Can I offer u baklava?
or a bagel with cream cheese?"


Damn, there are quite a few. When Prince is lyrically off, he's pretty amateurish.

Actually that one of my favourite Prince lyrics. Some of his lyrics are so bad, they are pretty funny. Another one in that category is Damn U:

"Like animals just born to breed". People who don't particularly like Prince, say, Oh What a lovely song. If only they knew the lyrics.

Mr Goodnight some people would say with

'People all over the world call me Prince but you can call me Mr Goodnight'

and the bit about picking a dress and him calling so you can say which one you've picked and he'll put on his matching suit!

But I love the song anyway its great, so funny smile
