Do U Lie?
Recorded on July 14, 1985 and released as the 9th track on album Parade (March 31, 1986). Written by Prince.

 
Les enfants qui mentent ne vont pas au paradis
{Children who lie do not go 2 paradise}
OK... merci {OK, thank U}

When I lie awake n my boudoir
I think of U, dear
Do U think of me or do U lie, do U lie?

When I'm n a sad and lonely mood, dear
I cry 4 U, dear
Do U cry 4 me, do U cry, do U cry?

When I need someone 2 talk 2, U're not around
When I need another human's touch
I wear a frown cuz U're uptown
Going down, going down, going down

I don't lie 2 U (I had 2 lie)
When I say that I'm n love, mama (Mama, mama)
I feel so good when U're near (Mama, mama)
Tell me, do U feel it 2, do U lie, do U lie?

Or do U cry from the inside out, dear
Or r they only artificial tears?
Do U really mean it when U cry, when U cry, when U cry?

When I need someone 2 talk 2 (Do U lie?)
U're not around, U're not around (I wear a frown)
When I need another human touch (Tell me why)
I wear a frown cuz U're uptown
(Tell me why U wanna go and leave me all alone)
Going down, going down, going down
Going down, going down, going down
Going down, going down, down

When I lie awake n my boudoir (I think of U)
I think of U, dear (Do U?)
Do y'all think of me, do U lie, do U lie?
