I love it too. Awesome song! I do agree there are some cringe-worthy lyrics in a few songs, but Damn U isn't one of them.

Sex in the summer is def one of his dumbest but more than that, least convincing hooks ever. The line in better with time though where it ends up with prince paying himself a compliment I think ruined the song 'And since only one of us Still looks the same Your words not mine, baby' Wtf.



You're taking those verses out of context. The whole verse is:

This might seem strange
Since so much time has passed
And since only one of us
Still looks the same
Your words not mine, baby
You are still fine yes you are
Like wine, you get better with time

He's saying that SHE SAID "only one of us still looks the same." He then follows it up by telling her she's still fine. I love this song, btw.

Lines I wish weren't in a Prince song.

"She knows how to make you feel like yo' stuff ain't brown tonight, and her perfume smells like the weekend." Ugggghhh...

The used condom bit in "One of Your Tears" always takes me out of whatever mood the rest of the song creates.

Very much agree about When She Comes. That really does ruin it for me atm.

Otherwise...

Download no respect for authority
Upload a child with no mother

Love the song "She Loves Me 4 Me" but these lyrics are cringy:

"This one I can take over my mamma's house
And I don't have to worry what goes in and out her mouth
All she needs is a little gratuity
She don't like no beef"

"She don't like no beef' is a joke.

He is saying she is a vegetarian but also beef means trouble. So he is saying she is no drama either.

It's a play on words.

I get the meaning 😂

It just sounds cheesy and controlling.

The One
"...pay your bills, buy you pretty dresses, and take you anywhere you wanna eat"
"If you're lookin' for a man who can share his dinero, buy you half the town"

Trying to sell himself and his worthiness based on money and material crap cheapens the song.

Without a doubt,this line from Dinner with Delores...

"Dinner with Delores
Must be some kind of sin
Like a Brontosaurus
She was packin' it in"

Makes me cringe every time

Yeah, I'll admit that there are a bunch of regrettable lyrics of his for me, but sometimes they are just kind-of left-field funny!
