From Kiss:

Act your age mama, not your shoe size

--

From Cream:

Make the rules, then break em all cuz U R the best

Ur filthy cute and baby U know it

--

From If I Was Your Girlfriend:

If I was your girlfriend, would you let me dress you
I mean, help you pick out your clothes before we go out?
Not that you're helpless [I love his use of the word helpless.]
But sometime, sometime those are the things that bein' in love's about

-

Would you let me wash your hair?
Could I make you breakfast sometime?
Well then, could we just hang out
I mean, could we go to a movie and cryyyyyyyyyyyyy together? [I love how he sings cryyyyyy.]
'Cause to me baby, that would be so fine (That would be so fine)

My favourite is still:

Making music naturally, me and W.B. - We can work it out.

The braggadocio in "Gett Off" is funny to me.

"What are you gonna do just sit there and watch?" from "Do Me, Baby"

One of the funniest things is at the very end of "Girls and Boys" video.

"BOO!" ..."Whatya think this is groovey goonies? Gong Show, that's more like. Boo!"

I asked Prince what he was planning to do. He told me , I'm going to look for the ladder. I asked him what that meant. All he said was, sometimes it snows in April. - book D.M.S.R.

Being a woman, I shouldn't find these lyrics funny but I do..(maybe, cuz I know its not a real threat..) these lyrics from the song Sarah made me laugh.

Girl, I hate to be the one
to tell you that your day is done
you best to get your shit and go'n
Or Tina won't be alone
I'd never raise my hand to you
No tellin' what my foot'll do
Ah, I'm kiddin' baby, that's a joke
Maybe I just got my heart broke

Prince's funniest lyrics were often about sex...

In 319, the following line made me laugh mostly due to his delivery...

Oh baby, how'd you get your legs to do that?
Ooh shit

In rockhard in a funky place, the majority of the lines made me laugh..

In Sex of It, when he calls the girl a bitch, it is actually made me laugh because it is obviously so tongue in cheek, ironic (what man hates being used for his sex?) and pathetic..

How can I make u understand that all I wanna do

Damn my life, I would rather spend it all with you.

I couldn't love you anymore--I guess I will hate you next..

Confess you bitch!!(What?)

--International Lover's entire plane metaphor makes me laugh.

--In Ballad of Dorothy Parker, his only eating fruit cocktail and then stating he was going to leave his pants on in the bath,,,and her responding both times with "It sound like a real man to me"...funny. He comes off like an inexperienced dweeb. If my understanding is correct his pants slip off in the bath, Dorothy pretends to be blind, nothing happens, he goes back to the room where he is fighting with a previous girlfriend and takes a bath with his pants off, the fighting stops presumably because he looks so ridiculous with his pants on and they are laughing at him. What a cute song.

My favorite "hilarious" lyric is in the midst of the ever so romantic song,Adore, he sings with that lovely voice -
".....You could burn up my clothes
Smash my ride" and then he says "well, maybe not the ride".

That always makes me smile & chuckle when I hear that.

From Vicki Waiting.......

I told the joke about the woman
Who asked her lover "Why is your organ so small?"
He replied "I didn't know I was playin' in a cathedral."
Vicki didn't laugh at all.

Actually, I found two that are the most funny, it's just the way he sang it... lol

From '18 & Over' (pretty cheesy line but funny):

"Hi yo Silver, it's the Bone Ranger, I'll freak you to the marrow."


From 'Peach' (my favorite line lmao):

"She was pure, every ounce
I was sure, when her titties bounced."

In "Mr. Goodnight," when he says, "No telling what I might do. I got a mind full of good intentions and a mouth full of Raisinets." That always cracks me up. And it makes my imagination run wild!!
