Crucial

2 me it sounds like P says "Play the forth & back" rather than "Never 4get that" ..can some1 please clarify?

Cuz just one look from U could make an army surrender
Baby, U've got 2 rescue me girl, girl
A prisoner in love with the opposite gender

I ain't sayin' U're better, baby, but I ain't sayin' U're not
I ain't sayin' anything until U stop
Never forget that cuz baby, I'll be your jack of all trades
A mind and body well made

Crucial - baby, our love has got 2 be
Crucial - everything from A 2 Z
Crucial - U've got 2 show me everything, everything, everything

Is that Old Man River knockin' at your door
Sayin' that we got 2 let more than our feelings show?
Baby, 2night don't hold nothin' back, I know U've got some more
I'll give U mine if U give me yours

I ain't sayin' U're better, baby, I ain't sayin' U're not
I ain't sayin' anything until U stop
Baby, don't hold me back cuz baby, I.. baby I need a jack 4 all trades
A mind and body well made

Crucial - our love has got 2 be
Crucial - every little thing from A 2 Z
Crucial - U've got 2 show me everything, everything, everything

Just as a side note, I remember being thrilled that it was going to be included in Crystal Ball, only to find out that it was the 'guitar' version and not the 'sax' verison <img src=" />

...and, that it was edited.

I still have hope for the entire 7:14 Sax version to be released some day!

I always heard it as "playin the forth and back...", but I'm terrible without a lyric sheet.

Make it so, Number One...

What you said sounds more close to the actual song smile! I wish there was a way to know for sure also...

Whatever it is it sounds far from "Never Forget That" or "Baby don't hold me back"(from second verse)

Crucial is one of my favorite songs of Prince's, and I also really love the sax version! But like other unreleased songs that were passed around fans, this version's weird pitch of vocals and quality bother me =<

Love this song although I'm glad it got bumped for Adore smile

I always hear this as something like "every little thing is ecstasy"

Confusion/interpretation obviously reigns with this superb song.

Stupid Prince and his falsetto mad lol

Just somewhere in the middle,
Not too good and not too bad.

This is a great Prince ballad. I'm glad it got cut for Adore but it's a shame a spot couldn't have been found for it somewhere. It might have made a good single, it's one of his more commercial sounding ballads. It would have been nice on Graffiti Bridge, perhaps (since he was already including older material).

This is perhaps my second favorite "unreleased" song. I say "unreleased" because, although it was on "Crystal Ball", that version PALES in comparison to the still-booted 7+ minute "guitar version" from "The Work 2.0". OHMIGERD, that song is fantastic. The guitar work is peerless.

Crucial Baby, U got 2 be from a different world
Cuz just one look from U could make an army surrender
Baby, U got 2 rescue me girl, girl
Prisoner in love with the opposite gender

I ain't sayin' U're better, baby
But I ain't sayin' U're not
I ain't sayin' anything until U stop
Playin' the forth and back
Cuz baby, I need a jack of all trades
And a mind and body well made, ooh

CHORUS:
Crucial
Baby, our love has got 2 be crucial
Everything from A 2 Z

And a mind and body well made, ooh

CHORUS

(La, la, la...)
La, la, la, la, la

Is that it?
