Erotic City Lyrics

Artist: Prince
Album: Girl 6

{B-side of Let's Go Crazy}
{Please note: There has been and always will be some debate over the interchangability of the words 'fuck' & 'funk' in this song. We leave it up to the listener to hear their preference}


I...I...I...I...
Erotic City
Erotic City

All of my purple life
I've been looking for a dame
That would wanna be my wife
That was my intention, babe

If we cannot make babies, maybe we can make some time
Thoughts of pretty u and me, Erotic City come alive
We can funk until the dawn, making love 'til cherry's gone
Erotic City can't u see, thoughts of pretty u and me

Everytime I comb my hair
Thoughts of u get in my eyes
U're a sinner, I don't care
I just want your creamy thighs

If we cannot make babies, maybe we can make some time
Thoughts of pretty u and me, Erotic City come alive
We can funk until the dawn, making love 'til cherry's gone
Erotic City can't u see, thoughts of pretty u and me

All of my hang-ups r gone
How I wish u felt the same
We can funk until the dawn ('Til the dawn) (Until the dawn)
How I wish u were my dame (Baby won't u call my name)

If we cannot make babies, maybe we can make some time
Thoughts of pretty u and me, Erotic City come alive
We can funk until the dawn, making love 'til cherry's gone
Erotic City can't u see, thoughts of pretty u and me

Baby, u're so creamy

If we cannot make babies, maybe we can make some time
Thoughts of pretty u and me, Erotic City come alive
We can funk until the dawn, making love 'til cherry's gone ('Til the dawn)
Erotic City can't u see, thoughts of pretty u and me

If we cannot make babies, maybe we can make some time (U and me)
Some time, some time, some time, Erotic City
If we cannot make babies, maybe we can make some time
Thoughts of pretty u and me, Erotic City come alive

We can funk until the dawn, making love 'til cherry's gone (Come alive)
Erotic City can't u see, thoughts of pretty u and me
We can funk until the dawn, making love 'til cherry's gone
Erotic City

I've heard this song uncensored for years, and now, just recently, they've started censoring this song on the radio!! WTF?!

I always thought they said: "If we cannot make believe, maybe we can make some time" but I now think I was wrong! And the word is definitely fuck, not funk. What a great song: my only gripe is that in every group of snares/claps, the 2nd snare (of 4)is compressed too much (for example on every 4th beat every 2 bars).

The reason why that snare is cut/compressed is because the Linn Drum shared voices, and when the sidestick hit it probably stole the voice from the snare.....just a thought, I could be totally wrong.

I dare Terminator to find someone, anyone better than Prince. I'll put Prince against Terminator favorite artist and lets see who wins. Elvis didn't write his songs, MJ can't play any instrusments, and it took four Beatles.....Only One PRINCE!!!
