Not sure how often you play prince around your house or in the car with your kids/grandkids around.But,as you all know kids pick up on everything.Anyway,my 10 year old has a nice drumset wants to be the next S.E... She thinks that she plays by ear (she doesn't lol).Every year her school has a little talent show so she wants to do LUCKY,ANOTHER ONE BITES THE DUST OR CREAM LOL YEP CREAM.I said why cream?!!! She said she likes the DRUMS on that song cool Wondering outside of prince's major fans do people let alone kids know the meaning behind some of his great songs lol Do you guys tell your kids when they sing his songs?HELP.....

My 4 year old likes some Prince songs. Lets go Crazy, Take me with you and Puple Rain are her faves. She is certanly not old enough to interpret anything like the meaning of Cream, and I have listened to that with her around. My best friend and I learned the meaning of masterbation by listening to Darling Nikki. Her mom overheard us saying "I wonder what that means", she said if you can't understand it you shouldn't be listening to it, and then explained it LOL yeah that was a rather uncomfortable conversation.

I'm not a human
I am a dove
I'm your conscious
I am love
All I really need is to know that
You believe

If she likes Cream, I say do it. Here's why... several times Prince has said that he wrote the lyrics to "Cream" while looking in the mirror. Ever since I heard him say this, I read the lyrics totally different than I originally thought (originally the sexual meaning came to mind). Reread these lyrics and imagine him talking about himself rising to the top (his sucess, fame, his talent, etc). Once I saw him say in an interview "Cream rises to the top". I think he might have been referencing the song, but cant remember. Anyway, this all makes sense with the song lyrics, etc. Now, of course P loved to make sexual innuendos in his songs, so I'm sure he figured originally people would take it as a song about sex, but after hearing him say it was written in the mirror (so about himself) and the cream rises to the top thing, this song takes on a whole different interpretation. You could tell her this (which is actually true because he said it himslef) and of course dont refer to the other meaning that it could imply. (JUST DONT SHOW YOUR DAUGHTER THE CREAM VIDEO!) lol

Read them and imagine him singing this about himself in the mirror and about his talent, his sucess, his drive, not worrying about what others think, his looks, etc.
Lyrics....

This is it
It's time for you to go to the wire (time to rise up and show everyone what you've got)
You will hit (maybe about making an actual hit? maybe just you will hit as in you will "win")
'Cause you got the burnin' desire (drive and desire to be sucessful)
It's your time (Time)
You got the horn so why don't you blow it (I take this as his voice)
You are fine (Fine)
You're filthy cute and baby you know it (yep, he knew it)

Cream (cream rises to the top...and he's kinda creamy in color..haha)
Get on top (on top of the charts, etc)
Cream
You will cop
Cream
Don't you stop (don't give up)
Cream
Sh-boogie bop

You're so good
Baby there ain't nobody better (Ain't nobody better) (yes, P has always been confident and maybe a little arragant)
So you should
Never, ever go by the letter (Never ever) (never do what is expected or what is popular, do your own thing)
You're so cool (Cool)
Everything you do is success (yep)
Make the rules (Rules)
Then break them all 'cause you are the best (and yes again..he did/lived the way he wanted)

Yes you are

Cream
Get on top
Cream
You will cop
Cream
Don't you stop
Cream
Sh-boogie bop

Look up in the air, it's your guitar (when he throws his guitar up in the air at the end of performances like he many times did)

Do your dance
Why should you wait any longer?
Take a chance
It could only make you stronger (basically, saying to himself do what you want, no regrets or fears)
It's your time (It's your time)
You got the horn so why don't you blow it (Go on and blow it)
You're so fine (you're so fine)
You're filthy cute and baby you know it (you know it)

Cream
Get on top
Cream
You will cop
Cream
Don't you ever stop
Cream
Sh-boogie bop

Cream
Cream
Cream
Sh-boogie bop

Cream
Cream
Right there
Cream
Don't you stop
Cream
Sh-boogie bop

I could be wrong, but I think maybe she was saying the drum parts on these are pretty good? I could be wrong. Dance On drums are pretty awesome.

By the way, I love that your daughter wants to be the next Shiela E. That's awesome! P would be so proud!
