Explain this line in a verse of Violet the Organ Grinder

One of my favorite songs is Violet the Organ Grinder. But there's a line in verse 2 where he says "I can deal with a sucker if he's in your mouth, but I can't deal with insincere." I know that he's saying something nasty, but i don't get what he's implying.

Also in the second verse of Gett Off, what is the "Little box" that he mentions?

These are probably really obvious, but if someone could explain, that'd be great. smile

Prince is saying that he's not a "sucker" so don't treat him like shit and the "little box" is a way of saying vagina.

This.

We don’t mourn artists because we knew them. We mourn them because they helped us know ourselves.

Exactly. That line is one of my favorite Prince lyrics ever. It's a classic "just own your shit" moment.

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

This is the first time I've heard someone being OK with that. Isn't his manlyhood being tested?

He wasn’t exactly speaking to someone he was engaged to. And deep down it’s actually a show of maturity. He understands that he and his partner aren’t exactly exclusive.

Yes by all accounts he definetly would not have been OK with it. If he was talking about himself.
He flew Carmen Electra out to hear I Hate U after he heard she went on a date with someone else. Even though at the time he was seemingly juggling her, Mayte, Nona and probably others. How did he find the time. The dirty lucky bastard

He actually didn't say he was ok with it. He said he could "deal with it." Maybe his way of dealing with it would be to dump her ass.

Of course, this is not the first time he expressed such a sentiment. See also: When You Were Mine

Hey Miitch- give a listen to "Eye Love U, But Eye Don't Trust U" as well. Great lyrics there as well.

Good morning children...take a look out your window, the world is falling...

yeahthat

Here's what bothers ME:

Prince died of an overdose of the drug Fentanyl. Of which, it is very highly fucking likely that he never even knew he'd taken.

It could even be that it's not someone he is involved with, but a friend lying about having sex with someone that Prince doesn't like. Maybe?

Violet The Organ Grinder:

*

"I can deal with another "sucker" if he's in your mouth, but I can't deal with insincere"...

*
He's saying he doesn't care if she's screwing around with another guy (or more specifically, giving him a blow job, based on the lyric), but then she shouldn't have told him he was the one she loved. He's saying he was a "sucker" for believing she loved him.

*

If you listen to the full song, he is saying she shouldn't have left him, because he knows she still loves him ("I am the one that lives in your heart, you love me no matter what you say...") and he is the best for her sexually ("swear you don't miss the "organ grinder" grinding on you everyday..")

*

He's also saying that he still thinks about her and masturbates to her pictures ("I took all the pictures you gave me and I placed them right under my bed. And I pumped and I pumped 'til the 'gasm jumped from my feet to the top of my head, oh boy!")

*

Gotta love Prince! Smut, anger, sex, love and sorrow all rolled into one intense song, and an even more intense video!!! love

It's definitely a message to a former love, as he says, "I was on my way to another room when an image of you sweetly appeared in the mirror. Perhaps you recall? You and I were neatly in the middle of a "crystal ball", that now serves as a reminder of you and I the organ grinder in the greatest "concert" of them all..."

*

He's saying he misses this woman and he's pissed off that she is now with another man "I do believe my "piano" was stolen, I do believe you want me near..", and he thinks about her and masturbates to her pictures "I took all the pictures you gave me..."

*

This is s a direct message to a former lover.
