Worst lyric?

Prince has some amazing lyrics but there's been a couple of cringy ones...

From Man O War..."Even if I tried to, I couldn't because I still smell like the last time"...

Ummm....take a shower? cool

In the wake of Prince's passing, this is a possibility. Would you listen to him then?

"The opposite of Nato is otan." And something else about "when them devils come, ...." on TRC. It's so freakin' corny.

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

Some I've never been especially fond of are the "river of blood" line in I Wanna Melt With U, "I want all your germs" in The Continental and "the taste outta your mouth" thing in Let's Pretend We're Married but I feel like there are others that aren't popping to mind immediately like just more akward or corny type ones. hmmmmm. Also, I agree with the Dolphin one mentioned above lol

We all want the stuff that's found in our wildest dreams. . .

LOVE that song!! Always thought of this lyric as that he feels like a submissive animal due to his raw and primal (animalistic) sexual desire that she (and the situation he is watching/ taking part of) is creating within him. This is another example of Prince being an amazing story teller while being as funky and sexy as hell!

Even though I really like the song, the lyric "don't look now...there's a river of blood...you must have been a virgin...what am I guilty of" from "I Wanna Melt With U." This came out when I was in college... such a great album (it's in my top 10), but it was hard to play this song around non-hardcore Prince fans let alone walk around campus with my headphones on singing to this one! biggrin

This and..."You don't have to watch Dynasty, to have an attitude..."

And I was watching a more recent live performance where he sings, "You don't have to watch...Sex In The City..."

These lyrics remind me that as cool and sexy and talented P was, he could be woefully out of touch by living in his little purple fantasy world.

Wendy Williams called him out on her show cuz he said something about "The InterWebs" in an interview a few years ago. She loves P, but she jokingly said something like, "Listen here, old man. Have a seat."

He must not have been offended by her remark,because he invited her and her husband to meet him, talk and enjoy his hospitality and a private show.

But I sometimes smiled and rolled my eyes because in a very sweet way, P could be a step behind in pop culture. I think he did it innocently most times, but I think he also did it deliberately sometimes with tongue planted firmly in his cheek.

I get accused of that sometimes because if something doesn't interest me, I either don't keep up with it or pretend not to understand. My kids say that I'm "ironic", so unapologetically uncool that I'm cool. Um. Ok.

LMAO wink cool

Interesting question! I have no answer. Being that I am not a musical genius, I truly love all of his lyrics. Some of them are admittedly odd but those are the ones (like in Peach) that I believe are supposed to make you laugh. music

Yeah,

I have had a cesarean section and a knee operation and there is NOTHING sexy about surgery.

I wanted to start a thread about replacing the "surgery" lyric in the song ''I Love You In Me" with something more romantic or sexier.

.

For Example;

.

"When she makin' love it's like chemistry"

or, honesty, or home to me, or heavenly, or reverie, or I don't know, anything but surgery.

Dinner with Delores - brontosaurus! cool ...& i agree w/ others about the rare cringey lines being endearing. he was so out-of-this-world talented and he maintained such a cool image, they provided back-to-earth moments and i'd feel a different kind of love for a little bit. like dorky family. then right back to awestruck.

so many kinds of love <3

"DON'TCHA KNOW DEAD BLOOD KILLS INTERFERONS!!" eek I loved ONA Live, but I can NEVER get past that line... & he shouted it too disbelief


I know it's not an official lyric, but it stains an otherwise stellar recording smile

not a fan of the "make a toast" line in Sticky Like Glue...

This is a sweet sentiment; although with regards Somewhere Here on Earth, couldn't the line about "you can just page me" be quite a clever use of irony? Just a thought.

The "joke" in Vicki Waiting.

Ruins the song completely for me.

Vicki didn't laugh at all, well that says enough..

I think he meant surgery as a precision thing, like in "surgical precision". So making love with her was a perfect, precise thing.
