Don't know if a lyric counts, but I love on "? of U" where he says,

Shall I become naked, no image at all?
Shall I remain upright, or get down and crawl?

I also liked when he said, "For those of you on valium, my name is Prince." That was from the First Avenue concert on 3/21/87.

"straight out da pool! "

" I think I'm great. Just think I'm great."

" I see the world in black in white. Yes. Black and white, night and day, black and white."

" Now wait a minute, I didn't write purple rain. It was a story, a fictional story and should be percieved that way."

" The first line of that song is 'your butt is mine'. Now who singing that to whom?. Cuz I ain't singing that to you and you sho ain't singin that to me."

" You know what Taffy rhymes with don't you? It rhymes with goodnite."

" I know you're going wit another motherfucker! "

"I walk around and go to the bathroom and try to brush my teeth and all of the sudden the toothbrush starts vibrating! That's a groove, you know."

" Don't you like suprises?"

" I'll rest when I'm dead! "

Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead.
Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow.
Do not walk beside me, either. Just leave me the hell alone rolleyes

Emancipation89

(1996 Oprah Interview)

Oprah: Ok. so people think you're weird, they think you're strange. What do you want them to know?

Prince: ...the music

When most artists who are known to be "weird" are asked the same question, they just start going on and on and on....about either "Oh I'm misunderstood" or "That's what makes me so special let me explain...blah blah blah"

But Prince's so cool with one word....He's a TRUE musician <3

i think it was when he was being interviewed by Leno.. but he said sometimes he used to call his band members and go "housekeeping?" in a foreign voice, and when they figured out it was him, hed switch it up and go "room service?"

giggle

and in the interview with Tavis Smiley in 09, he said somebody swore up and down that "little red corvette" was "pay the rent collect" lol and there was another one with "when doves cry" but i cant remember it.

I think I'm paraphrasing, but I always chuckle a bit when I see the MTV interview from 1985 just after ATWIAD came out.

"I am like every other human being. I need love. I need water."

"What are you talking about? ATWIAD was funky!" (in response to the intervierer saying that he had left his funk roots behind on ATWIAD)

I have a boot from the Gold Experience tour...I think the show was in London. Anyways...he was talking to the crowd quite a bit. My two faves (paraphrased):

"True story...me and my cousin went to see the Jackson 5. Them boys had on flat shoes. I said 'You can't play funk in flat shoes!' Eric Clapton? He a bad muthafucka, but he wears them flat shoes."

Then he starts talking about himself and his heels. Dont remember his exact words, but he ended it with "I need my ass up on high!"

Later, or before...regardless, the same show. He's talkin sexy to the ladies and says

"It's only dirty if you dont wash up!"

I use that one to this day.

blunt music She has robes and she has monkeys, lazy diamond studded flunkies.... music blunt

there aren't quotes, but i love scene from UTCM, when Christopher was playing piano at Mrs. Wellington's house and her husband (?) called to her and recorded on her answering machine. I remember only this:

*Mr.Wellington was saying something*

*Christopher was playing piano*

Mr. Wellington: What is it? Are you with man? If you are there, i will kill you

*Christopher played strange tune*

Mr. Wellington: I hate this machine

Christopher: Me too

it always makes me laugh razz don't forget about 'Tricky put the phone down' lol

So evil girl, if one of us has a date,
With the undertaker, which one will it be?

The Indigo Nights cd has some pretty damn funny parts in it!

Tha beginning of Delirious ( monologue)

I used to be just like you, I could go to the supermarket,

And my mama would ask me, my mama asked me to pick her up some cigerettes & tampons,

I could um...... WHAT? WHAT?

Oh like your mum aint told you....... WHATEVER!!!!!

You'd hide them in the bag trying to get back hoping that none of your friends saw you,

Don't play it............ PLEASE!!!!

& Just like You (monologue)

'I used to be just like you,

Summertime in New York, Walking around just having a good time,

Lookin' at all the girls, All the girls lookin' at me,

To tell me to get out of the way so they could see my cuter friend...........

&

'Whatever they didnt want I could just........... Hi do you think we could..........

Oh never mind...........

Prince once tried 2 change his name 2 a symbol so that ur'e mother couldn't find him in the phonebook!
Peace & Be Wild!

"Every time I comb my hair, thoughts of you get in my eyes"

I'm guessing he didn't coin this expression but I think it is one of his better lyrics.

Very subtle yet powerful imo

You're so glam, every time I see you I wanna slam!
