Cherry, Cherry
Recorded late 1994 (w/ The NPG) and released as the 10th track on NPG album Exodus (March 27, 1995). Written by Prince.

 
Ooh oh, ooh
Cherry, Cherry

Rozanda was her real name but Cherry was her chosen 1
Everybody said that she'd soon b dead
But Cherry replied, "At least I had some fun"
Oh yes
Her eyes were like a pool of 24-karat diamonds
I was the last n a long line of foolish men who dived n

Cherry, Cherry
I think about U every risin' sun
Whoa Cherry, Cherry
Wherever U r, I hope U're havin' fun
Oh yes

Tuesday was the big game, North vs. Central n basketball
Underneath their long coats, Cherry and the girls wore camisoles
Every time North would run the hoop
Cherry would flash 'em and they would fall
But not as hard as I fell when Cherry gave me her number
And told me 2 call
"U should call me"
Using all the money her boyfriend Wilbur gave her, she'd buy
Anything I wanted, that's why my baby's so fly

Cherry, Cherry
I think about U every risin' sun (Ooh)
Whoa Cherry, Cherry
Wherever U r, I hope U're havin' fun (Ooh)
Oh yes
Do do do do doo

Me and Cherry got married
And tried our best 2 keep it on the down low
The down low

I was combing her hair the day that Wilbur called
And cussed her on the phone
He beat her up real bad and figured I was gonna leave her
Instead I bought a .45 and set out 2 relieve her (Take him out)
If he was taken out then he could never harm another
And no sooner than I got there, I was met by Cherry's mother

Cryin' Cherry, Cherry
Every night I ask the Lord, "Why?"
"Oh why?"
Cherry, Cherry
Another victim of a suicide
"Why?" (Why oh why?)

Cherry, Cherry (Ooh)
I think about U every risin' sun
Whoa Cherry, Cherry
Wherever U r, I hope U're havin' fun (Ooh)
I hope U're havin' fun, baby

Cherry, Cherry
I'd give anything 2 kiss U
Cherry, Cherry
I guess I just miss U
Cherry
