These Are The Best Prince Lyrics About Sex
On Thursday, TMZ broke the news that legendary artist Prince has died. The music icon was found dead at his home in Minnesota early Thursday morning. His publicist confirmed to Bustle, saying, "It is with profound sadness that I am confirming that the legendary, iconic performer, Prince Rogers Nelson, has died at his Paisley Park residence this morning at the age of 57." This is a devastating loss for not just the music community, but the world.
Unlike so many artists, Prince didn’t stick to one genre. Similar to another musical legend we lost earlier this year, David Bowie, he was constantly reinventing himself. He never shied away from controversy and dared to take on the music industry when Warner Bros. Music tried to take control over the artistic vision he had for his own music. It was during that time that he appeared in public with the word “slave” written on his cheek and changed his name to a symbol that couldn’t be pronounced, making him “The Artist Formerly Known as Prince” for a few years. But eventually he got his control back and had been hard at work creating ever since.
You didn’t have to come of age in the 1980s to love Prince. You could pick up an album today for the very first time and fall in love. Losing him is a true loss, and this Prince fan currently has “Darling Nikki” on repeat, and probably will for the next three days.
Here are eight of the best Prince lyrics about sex. Although, if we're to be honest, all his lyrics were about sex.
1. “Darling Nikki” (1984)
I knew a girl named Nikki / I guess you could say she was a sex fiend / I met her in a hotel lobby / Masturbating with a magazine / She said how'd you like to waste some time / And I could not resist when I saw little Nikki grind.
2. “Little Red Corvette” (1982)
I guess I must be dumb / ‘Cause you had a pocket full of horses / Trojan and some of them used / But it was Saturday night / I guess that makes it all right / And you say what have I got to lose?
3. “Cream” (1991)
This is it / It's time for u to go to the wire / You will hit / Cuz you got the burnin' desire / It's your time (Time) / You got the horn so why don't you blow it / You are fine (Fine) / You’re filthy cute and baby you know it / Cream / Get on top/ Cream/ You will cop / Cream / Don’t you stop.
4. “Jack U Off” (1981)
I only do it for a worthy cause / Virginity or menopause / You’ll have an instant heart attack if I jack you off / If u really really want to be a star / We gotta do it in your momma's car / Naked in a Cadillac, I'll jack you off.
5. “Come” (1994)
(Come) / (When you) When I lay U down I'm gonna tell U what 2 feel / (Come) / (Don't you) Don't be surprised if I make U my daily meal / (Come) / (Lickin' you inside) Lickin' you inside, outside / (Outside) All sides (All sides), up and down (up and down)/ (Come) / With my tongue in the crease, baby I go 'round / When I go down, down, down, (Come) down, down, down, da-da-down.
6. “Raspberry Beret” (1985)
Listen / They say the first time ain't the greatest / But I tell ya / If I had the chance to do it all again / I wouldn't change a stroke / ‘Cause baby I'm the most / With a girl as fine as she was then.
7. “Head” (1980)
And you said / ‘But I just a virgin and I'm on my way to be wed / But you're such a hunk / So full of spunk / I’ll give you Head / ’Til you're burning up / Head / ’Til you get enough / Head / ’Til your love is red / Head / Love you ’til you're dead.
8. “When Doves Cry” (1984)
Dig if you will the picture / Of you and I engaged in a kiss / The sweat of your body covers me / Can you my darling / Can you picture this? / Dream if you can a courtyard / An ocean of violets in bloom / Animals strike curious poses / They feel the heat / The heat between me and you … Touch if you will my stomach / Feel how it trembles inside / You've got the butterflies all tied up / Don't make me chase you / Even doves have pride.
If you didn't know "When Doves Cry" is clearly about sex, then I guess you don't sound like doves crying when you orgasm.
