Is this a source of great controversy? I would still like to know these lyrics as close as I can.

Jamie Starr & The Starr ★ Company

wanna rap a little bit, oh!
Yeah!

Baby, U got somethin' that would make
A many hippie mighty proud
U got a dozen little sexy tricks
That doesn't seem that Miss U.S. would even allow
Never do U boast like the other girls
Who think they found a love 2 flaunt it (I never hear U brag)
And what I dig the most is that U keep it in your hand
Until I, until I, until I want it

CHORUS:
If ever honey U need someone 2 take a shower with girl
Call me up and scream
Extra lovable, honey don't U wanna, don't U wanna
Take a bath with me?

Listen.
Baby, U could turn my mama on
She's just as straight, just as straight as straight can be
Even though my daddy's gone
Come back just 2 haunt U, come back just 2 haunt U mystically
(Yes he will)
Baby, I know my rap is hard
Not as hard as what's behind door (dig it), door number pants
Baby, U're so sure, I'd love 2 see U dancin' naked
Ooh sugar, I wanna see U dance

CHORUS

Don't U wanna get, don't U wanna get off?

Baby, U got something that would make
A many hippie mighty proud (Then play it loud!)
U got a dozen little sexy tricks
That doesn't seem that Miss U.S., ooh, would even allow
Yeah, never do U boast like the other girls
Who think they found a love 2 flaunt it
(Oh, play with this love, yeah, let me tell ya)
What I dig the most is the way that U keep your sugar in your hand
Till I want it

If ever honey U need someone 2 take a shower with mama (There it is)
Call me up and scream
Extra lovable, honey don't U wanna, don't U wanna
Take a bath with me?

Ooh, sugar baby, U're so fine
What say U and me go 2 my place and make some time?
I'm not that popular yet, so if U want, I'm yours
"I don't want anyone 2 see what we're gonna do"
Think U better shut the door

(Ooh!)
Do U know what I'm talkin' about? (I say ooh ooh!)
If U know it, let me hear U say it baby (I say ooh!)
I can't hear U (Ooh ooh!)
Purple politicians, sing it (Ooh!)
Come on, 2 times, sing it (Ooh ooh!)
One time (Ooh!)
2 times (Ooh ooh!)
I wanna rap a little bit (One time, ooh!)

I said my daddy might be dead
But he'll know what is she (Anybody, 2 times, ooh ooh!)
Heaven knows I told him
She's bad as U could be (One time, ooh!)

Oh, yeah (2 times, say ooh ooh!)
(Ooh!)
Extra lovable, extra lovable
(U got it, 2 times, say ooh ooh!)
(Ooh!)
(2 times, say ooh ooh!)
Would anybody care 2 get naked?

Extra lovable {x3}

(Ooh!)
Extra lovable (Ooh ooh!)
Here we go, come on (Ooh!)
Extra lovable (2 times, ooh ooh!)
Extra lovable (Ooh!)
Extra lovable (2 times, ooh ooh!)
Extra lovable (One time, say ooh!)
Everybody (Ooh ooh!) (Extra lovable)
Lisa (Ooh!) (Can U feel it, baby?)
Bobby Z, say it (Ooh ooh!) (U got 2 say it loud)
Doctor (Ooh!)
Hey Dez, don't U like my band? (Ooh ooh!) (Gotta, gotta say it loud)
Everybody, Brownmark say (Ooh!) (Everybody else sing it)
Brownmark, Brownmark say (Ooh ooh!) (Extra lovable)
I can't hear U, say (Ooh!)

This ain't just about your body, baby
It's about your mind (Ooh ooh!)
Come on and take the drop, baby
And spare some time (Ooh!)

I'm on the verge of rape
I don't think U heard me (Ooh ooh!)
I'm on the verge of rape
I'm on the.

I'm sorry, but I'm just gonna have 2 rape U
Now are U going 2 get into the tub or do I have 2 drag U?
Don't make me drag U
I can be very cruel
Yeah!

If U don't stop the groove
Extra lovable beat tell your body what 2 do (Huh!)
If U don't stop the groove
Extra lovable beat tell your body what 2 do (Huh!)
If U don't stop the groove
Extra lovable beat tell your body what 2 do (Oh, oh!)
If U don't stop the groove
Extra lovable beat tell your body what 2 do (Ooh!)
If U don't stop the groove (Ooh ooh!)
Extra lovable beat tell your body what 2 do
(That's right) (Ooh ooh ooh!)
If U don't stop the groove
Extra lovable beat tell your body what 2 do
(Wait a minute) (Ooh!)
If U don't stop the groove
Extra lovable beat tell your body what 2 do (Ooh!)
If U don't stop the groove
Extra lovable beat tell your body what 2 do {fade out}
(Break Wendy, huh!) (Ooh!) (Huh!)
If U don't stop the groove
Extra lovable beat tell your body what 2 do

See I get the idea that a lot of these lyrics are incorrect. That's why I am wondering what the most accurate ones are.

U should probably listen through the song and try to come up with the most accurate that you think they are.
Since there are no actual written lyrics that we know of

If you listen to the song, people try to come as close as they can

I need to listen to the (reloaded) version and see if some of the lyrics we are correcting come from that one.

I just don't really like the (reloads)

I thought he was singing "Miss US" this whole entire time since it kinda made sense and fits within that particular lyric. "Dozon cities in this US" is ok, I guess he was referring to sodomy laws?

Here's another one I'm not sure about

And what I dig the most is that U keep it in your hand
Until I, until I, until I want it

Is he saying "in your hand" or "in your head"?

The "somethin' " she's got "that would make a many hippie mighty proud" is her magical box.

She's keeping her "sugar" in her hand until he wants it.

In otherwords, she's always ready to go, playing with her p*s$y, keeping it warm within her hand, until it is time to boff tonk

I'm on the verge of rape

I'm sorry, but I'm just gonna have 2 rape U
Now are U going 2 get into the tub or do I have 2 drag U?
Don't make me drag U

Yeah!

.

Those lines would be enough or the Rape Crisis to shut down Prince for ever. Of coruse it is just a song, but how long until some meathead with an IQ of 67 acts upon them and there is a moral panic.

.

Of course in 1982 there was not the awareness and compassion towards rape victims that there are now. I never even heard the term mentioned until about 1987.

Got some kind of love for you, and I don't even know your name
