Funny Prince Moments in his songs

I've always thought that Prince has had a great sense of humor and that even in his most serious songs he's been able to make me crack up * the moaning at the start of When Doves Cry cracked me up when I was a 9 year old listening to the song for the first time* But what are your favorite funny random Prince moments in his music? One of my favorites is when he isn't really trying to be funny, kinda like in Now when he starts streaming the lyrics and after he screams now you hear him start panting really loud before screaming again. Just the sound he makes while he's panting is hilarious to me. There's a ton of funny moments that come to mind like the ending of Musicology when he's telling people to stop touching his stereo and Face Down is an awesome song thats also funny because of how derpy it is (Like when he calls out to the orchestra and then a sampled orchestra starts playing) or the intro Mr. Happy with his derpy voice. What are your favorite funny Prince moments in his songs?

Purple is the color of my heart,
Bruised from you leaving me.

I have no idea what derpy means!

But as for funny moments, "well, maybe not the ride", always raises a smile.

Derpy kinda means like goofy or awkward

Collean Bacon Skin is from Crystal Ball. By the way I'm pretty sure it isn't Collean Bacon Skin but rather Cloreen Bacon Skin. I just checked iTunes and that's what it read for me.

"Some people tell me I've got great legs. Now why on earth would you make me beg?" (That is a paraphrase.)

"Why you want to break lil' Prince's heart?" Said with such gentle mocking on One Night Alone.

"Would you run to me when someone hurts you, even if that someone was me?" If I was Your Girlfriend is ominous and funny.

And anything Scarlet Pussy. That is a given.

Oh I find that song hilarious. I think it has to do with that whistling sound in the background of the song.

I remember some video where Prince is disguised as an old man and at the end of the video he says to two women (I think one looks like Mani) "I got the butter for your muffin, I just don't have a knife".

I also think it's funny when he talks about how long it takes for him to do his hair in the song "Mellow"....I think

Omg! I think thats the video for 'Come On' from New Power Soul! I saw snippets of that video on his TV Interview He's The One which was from that era while I was searching the web recently! That video actually seems really cool, I wanna find it.

He is very comedic. A lot of his facial expressions and body language crack me up. The live versions of forever in my life and you've got the look immediately come to mind. He would have been great in silent films.

Oh my gosh that would have been epic. I can kinda already imagine Under The Cherry Moon as a silent movie since Prince and Jerome constantly use facial expressions to portray emotion. *Opens Sony Vegas and re-edits Under The Cherry Moon into a Silent Film*
