Dont talk 2 strangers

These lyrics are doing me in right now sad I have heard chaka khan's version if this prince song. Has anyone heard Prince's version? if so where can I hear it?
Poignant and beautiful right now.



Gotta go now
Don't know when I'll be coming back
Got my future
All planned out
Got my bags packed
Things don't always turn out right
That's just the way it goes
Before I leave u there's just a few things u should know

Don't talk 2 strangers
Don't forget to say your prayers at night
Remember god he made u
And one day he'll make everything alright
Don't cross on yellow
U always got to wait 4 a green light
Remember god he made u
One day he'll make everything alright

Alright

Little darling
Gotta go now
Don't worry u'll be just fine
When it comes 2 good luck
I just know, I just know u'll always be the first in line
Nobody'll ever love u as much as I do
That doesn't mean other people won't love u 2
Don't talk 2 strangers
Don't forget 2 say your prayers at night
Remember god he made u
And one day he'll make everything alright
Don't cross on yellow
U always got to wait 4 a green light
Remember god he made u
And one day he'll make things alright

Alright
Make everything alright
Alright

Little darling
Gotta go now
Got my future all planned out
Before I go
Don't talk 2 strangers
Don't forget to say your prayers at night
Remember god he made u
One day he'll make everything alright
Baby, you're a star.

Meet me in another world, space and joy

It's on one of the NPG albums (Exodus I think) as well as the Girl 6 soundtrack.

The Prince version is officially available on the Girl 6 soundtrack (but not one of the NPG albums).

It was originally for I'll Do Anything, with Nick Nolte & Tracy Ullman. If you watch the movie, she actually says some of these lyrics, as regular dialog, when she leaves her kid with Nick.

There's actually a whole boot of songs Prince did for the movie, including a gazillion takes of the song "Wow" (not the same as from AOA). The music was never used (they hated it), and the movie was rewritten as a regular drama, instead of a musical.

Chaka covered it on Come 2 My House, and as noted by langebleu, his version is on Girl 6.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

Some of the "I'll do anything" demos are nice. Prince at the piano playing and kind of beatboxing.

Didn't some of Nick Nolte's vocals leak? They make Jughead sound geat.

I'll do anything, There is lonely, Be my mirror, Don't talk to strangers, Rest of my life, Make Believe... I love all these songs; the Prince versions. It's a nice little Prince piano EP.

This was one of the first songs I decided to listen to the night the news broke. The piano/guitar chords on the chorus are so beautiful, but sad when put together with the lyrics.

And just in case, this song is not about Madonna or Vanity.

This is one of my favourite Prince songs, I'veprobably mourned more with this as much as others have with SISIA.

Always cry 4 love, never cry 4 pain.

He only referred to him as "little darling" from 1990-1993.
