Prince's Humor or Shade Antics - What lines in songs u find funny?

I'm enjoying:

X's Face 😆 He's calling her EX a monkey!! 😆


Go and take that banana
Then get back in your cage
Oh Lord
Ooh ooh ah hah ah ah

The X's face
Go and take that banana, take it
The X's face
Get it, I said you could have it
Oh no
The X's face
mushy

Face Down is another. According to Mr. Hayes the lyrics were inspired by a conversation he had with P.
Somebody once told him that he wouldn't take Prince through the ringer
Let him go down as a washed up singer
Ain't that a bitch?
Thinkin' all along that he wanted 2 be rich
Never respected the root of all evil and he still don't 2 this day, huh
Bury him face down, let the motherfuckers kiss a ass, OK?

Face down! [x2]

Told 'em he wanted 2 sing a song about a black child goin' buck wild
And they just laughed in his face
Talk 2 your lawyer but U got no case
What U need 2 do is keep your place
Next time U pull a card, it better be a ace motherfucker
Or U can lay face down (Face down!)

1 2
Face down! 1 2

Him and her meaning who I'm singin' about
And his psychoanalyst kinda saw the catalyst
As the devil with the blue jeans on, huh
Ain't it kinda funny when U see the dawn?
Sign the name they gave ya
But when them motherfuckers turn around ass up, U're what?

Face down! 1 2
Face down! New Power Generation in the house, bury 'em all
Face down! Yes, oh Lord
Face down!
The kind of love that takes over your body, mind, & soul

Just general Prince humor I always loved "If a Girl Answers (Don't Hang Up)" or his delivery in "Chili Sauce" after Morris makes his virgin for dessert joke, "Sir, I'm afraid I don't get it."

According to M Hayes, P wrote the song (Face Down) after a convo that he and Hayes had, about a bad album review that P had read about. Hayes was incredulous that P had taken all of Hayes’ comments and incorporated them into the song.

Just about all of the cheeky ‘International Lover’, especially the last part, using airplane landing procedures as sexual metaphor, lol:
.
‘Good evening. This is your pilot Prince speaking
You are flying aboard the Seduction 747
And this plane is fully equipped with anything
Your body desires
.
If for any reason there is a loss in cabin pressure
I will automatically drop down to apply more
To activate the flow of excitement
Extinguish all clothing materials and pull my body close to yours
.

.
There’s much more but you get the picture

Now put that suitcase down
And go in there
And put on that wig I bought you
No No,
No No
The reddish-brown one

Banana has other meanings besides monkey food.

Prince stacked music and lyrics in layers. I didn't say there was no monkey. I said banana has other meanings. Also, Prince could be the X in that song.
