I think I need help (This Could Be Us Misheard lyrics)

It starts at 3:24. Listen to Prince's background vocals closely and tell me what U hear.

My first thought was "No way in Hell! Prince did not just go there" I made the background vocals higher and it only confirmed my first thought. This is what I heard when the background vocals were up:

"Metaphysical cookie milk and cream

Nothing mystical let me lick the kitty clean

And after that you can put me on my back

Look for candy in a purple psychodelic pimpsack"


CARRY ON!

No one is coming for your abortion: they just want common-sense abortion regulations: background checks, waiting periods, lifetime limits, take a class, and a small tax.

good find! just listened to it, that's totally what he says.

this record keeps unveiling new little sonic treasures. loving it, 'this could be us' was the creeper track for me, it's grown on me the most.

classic prince ballad.

This remains my favorite song off the album...just fucking love it, and these lyrics make it SO SO SO much better. Thanks for sharing! I would never have heard that. I seem to have lost the patience to listen as close as I used to...I remember hearing the background "thinking 'bout eatin' that pussy" lyric in Madrid 2 Chicago and posting about it on NPGMC (and promptly getting my account suspended for being vulgar, LOL).

No confusion, no tears. No enemies, no fear. No sorrow, no pain. No ball, no chain.

Sex is not love. Love is not sex. Putting words in other people's mouths will only get you elected.

Need more sleep than coke or methamphetamine.

He clearly says "Let me lick your pretty cooze" in this song. Cooze is of course slang for pussy.

He's still dirty, y'all.

Rude Boy!

No, you're right, this is under that. There are two layers of vocals. I think if you listen with headphones, what you are hearing is the main vocal in the left ear, the other lyrics are much more noticable in the right ear. (I've listened so many times now, though I could be crazy. lol)

Hehe I should've mentioned that it is much easier to hear with headphones! He put those vocals in the background for a reason, making it all hard to hear n shit. Naastaaay
