It was intended for The Time's second album What Time Is It?. A version with Morris Day on vocals was recorded but Prince didn’t like the result and reclaimed the song to use on 1999 instead.

Basic tracking took place on January 14th 1982 @ Sunset Sound in Hollywood, California three days after
Gigolos Get Lonely Too (What Time Is It?), two days after

Bold Gereration,

the same day as The Walk, and the day before Colleen), during sessions for The Time's second album What Time Is It?.
.
Prince recorded an initial version on this day with Morris Day on drums. This version was released as Take 1 (Live In Studio) as the eighth track on the Vault Tracks part 1 disc of a Super Deluxe Edition edition of the 1999 album. The version was worked on further on the same day and possibly at a later date, so that almost none of the elements of this 'take 1' version can be heard in the track as it was released on 1999 in 1982. Morris Day's version was recorded most likely shortly after at Prince's Kiowa Trail Home Studio in Chanhassen, Minnesota.

Darling, it appears to me
That you could use a date tonight
A body that'll do you right
am I qualified? yeah
Darling, I know it's hard to believe
this body here is free tonight
You're riding on a first class flight
My plane's parked right outside,

I'm an international lover,
Let me take you 'round the world
I'll buy you diamonds and pearls
Only if you're good girl yeah

Darling, I know it's been a long time
Since you've been satisfied
I can tell by the look in your eyes
You need it real bad

Baby, maybe if you're good girl
I'll introduce you to my ride
Don't you wanna come inside?
Come on baby, I won't fly too fast, I've got so much class
I'm an
International Lover
Let me take you around the world,
I'll buy you diamonds and pearls
Only if you're good girl

let me say it one more time

I'm an
International Lover
Baby you can be my pet
I know how to keep you wet
"Peggy r u listening"
Only if you're good girl
break it down

Good evening! This is your pilot Prince speaking
You're 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
pull my body close
Place my lips over your mouth
And kiss, normally
In the event there is overexcitement
Your seat cushion may be used
As a flotation device
We ask that you please observe the
"No Letting Go" sign
I anticipate a few turbulence along the way

We are now making our final approach into Satisfaction
Please bring your lips, your arms, your hips
Into the upright and locked position
Yeah
Welcome to Satisfaction
Please remain awake until the aircraft
Has come to a complete stop
Thank you for flying Morris International
"don't touch the cymbals"

Next time you fly, fly the International Lover
"give me a nice ending right here, just touch the cymbals alittle bit you know fill it out a little bit
did U like that
do you want to do it again?

ahhhhhh

Girl, I called you up to say
That I'm havin' trouble sleepin' ever since you went away
Girl, I know you need a little time
To get your head together, baby, I can't stop cryin', yeah

Girl, why'd you go away?
What can I say to make you stay?
Girl, I was a fool, don't know what to do
Still in love with you, still in love with you, oh baby

Girl, I guess I was a fool to try to tie you down
And make you play by rules
Girl, I guess I finally realized
Keepin' you close to me it would keep me alive

Girl, why'd you go away?
What can I say to make you stay?
Now now, girl, I was a fool, don't know what to do
Still in love with you, don't know what I'm gonna do, no, no, no

What can I say, baby, to make you stay?
I don't know what to do, no I don't
I'm still in love, still in love, still in love

Down on my knees, baby, please

Oh baby please

Still in love with you

Andre Cymone, who played bass in [Prince]'s band, had been very involved in THE TIME project from the beginning. He was also assembling a girl group, called "The Girls", and saw the side projects as an opportunity to supplement his relatively small income from being a band member only. Andre claimed that he came up with many of the ideas for THE TIME before being muscled out of the project, wich led into falling out with [Prince]. The relationship between Andre Cymone and [Prince] had been deteriorating for some time. Andre felt, that he didn't receive enough credits for his input into [Prince]'s music and stage act, even accusing [Prince] of knowing stealing his ideas. He decided to leave [Prince]'s band and embark a solo-career. He accepted to participate in the upcoming european tour, but he left the band immediately afterwards.

Lisa Coleman later also reported, that [Prince] pulled stunts like turning home studio jams with [Morris Day] and her into material for THE TIME and another side-project, Vanity 6

Producer(s) Prince (The Starr ★ Company)

Cool" is a song by The Time, released as the second single from their eponymous debut album. Like most of the album, the song was recorded in Prince's home studio in April 1981, and was produced, arranged, and performed by Prince with Morris Day later adding his lead vocals. The song was co-written with Revolution guitarist Dez Dickerson and contains background vocals by keyboardist Lisa Coleman, however both were uncredited.

The classic video for the song is directed by Chuck Statler, who is best known for directing the early Devo videos

I'll try 2 squeeze a little time
Cuz I make love, love every mornin'
2 who's ever by my side
Well, U might say that I'm a nymphomaniac
But it keeps me satisfied

When I look into the mirror
It just tells me something I already know
I'm so cool (Cool)
Cool - Honey, baby can't U see?

Dapper brand of 'cool' still suits Time

In the '80s, when backdated attire turned a handful of street-wise musicians into sartorial hipsters, fans nationwide struggled to keep up with The Time.

Inspired by zoot suits, bygone Hollywood glamour and underworld cool, the band scoured hand-me-down shops for designer castoffs to enhance their image as swaggering funk kingpins. Porkpie hats, pleated trousers, wide-shouldered long coats, Morris Day's gold jacket with the tiger-print lapels. OK, not every outfit screamed panache. Some just screamed.

.

.

Little has changed, except now they can afford new threads.

"Our first clothing budget was $100," Jesse Johnson remembers. "For all of us."

Sporting flashy suits, shades and fedoras, The Time continues to pride itself on fashion sense. And in typical Time fashion, the band is still behind the times, opting for a Godfather vibe over today's sloppy chic.

It all started with sprees at Minneapolis vintage shops Ragstock and Tatters Clothing.

"We were interested in being cool," Jimmy Jam says. "It was about attitude and feeling good about ourselves, even though we didn't have the money."

Morris had to overcome his retail snobbery. "I ain't going to lie: I was a little apprehensive about going into a used-clothing store," he says. "But that original Presley (suit) came out of Tatters, and I wore it till it fell off."

No designers or stylists played a role in The Time's flamboyant early press photos or videos.

At concerts during the first tour, "every kid was dressed like us, because they could do it cheap," Jesse says. "The prices at Ragstock went way up."

The Time's dapper-duds scheme soon backfired.

Says Jerome Benton, "By the end of the tour, used suits at Aardvark's (in L.A.) were $300."

Talkin' trash to Jimmy Jam, tell us where the party's at

Wild and loose, that's how it's got to be
'cause that's the only kind of dame that appeals to me

Either you come or you can't, now get loose, let me hear you scream

"The guys from the time are right behind you"
"Are you serious?"
"No, I'm not look, I, I mean yes I am! Over there"
"Oh my God"
"Can you believe it? Look"
"Should I look?"
"Should I go over and see if he remembers me?"
"Oh yeah"
"But what should I say?"
"Say somethin'"
"Hi, hi Morris"
"Excuse me, hello, do I know you?"
"Yeah, you talked to me on the phone last night"
"Is that right? Well, you sure don't look like you sound"
"Well, excuse me"
"It's okay baby, I got things to do, I'll talk to you later"
"Jerk! That was the worst concert I've ever been to"

What Time Is It? (Front Cover)

Wild And Loose is the first track on The Time’s second album What Time Is It? The song was written by Prince and Dez Dickerson, although the song is officially credited to The Time. It was produced by Prince (as The Starr Company), but was credited to Morris Day and The Starr Company.

Basic tracking took place on 19 January 1982 at Sunset Sound in Hollywood, California (four days after Colleen, and the day before Turn It Up). As with much of the What Time Is It? album, the recording features only Prince and Morris Day.

  • Morris Day - vocals and drums
  • Prince - background vocals and all other instruments (uncredited)
  • Susan Moonsie - background vocals (assumed, uncredited)
  • Kim Upsher - background vocals (assumed, uncredited)
