Christopher Tracy's Parade

Ow!

Every1 come behold Christopher Tracy's parade

Unless it should rain strawberry lemonade
Hopefully that will not occur
The Man above has been paid
Give what U can

So he runs 2 his evil car

Every1 come behold Christopher Tracy's parade
Goodness will guide us
If love is inside us

Under The Cherry Moon

How can stand 2 stay where am?
Poor butterfly who don't understand
Y can't fly away N a special sky?
If don't find my destiny soon
'll die N ur arms under the cherry moon

want 2 live life 2 the ultimate high
Maybe 'll die young like heroes die
Maybe 'll kiss U some wild special way
If nobody kills me or thrills me soon
'll die N ur arms under the cherry moon
& that's alright

Lovers like us, dear, R born 2 die
If they don't find us, what will we do?
guess we'll make love under the cherry moon
'll die N ur arms under the cherry moon

This morning there was joy N my heart

Kiss me once, kiss me twice

Shivering madly N ur embrace
(Shivering madly N ur embrace is it better than a trip)
Better than a trip
(Morning glories never cry, my love is justa drippin')
Morning glories cryin' N the rain

Kiss me once, kiss me twice (Drips)

Instrumental written by Prince, recorded July 1985.

Mountains

Once upon a time N a land called Fantasy
17 mountains stood so high
The sea surrounded them & 2gether they would B
The only thing that ever made U cry
U said the devil told U that another mountain would appear
Everytime somebody broke ur heart
He said the sea would 1 day overflow with all ur tears
& love will always leave U lonely
But say it's only mountains & the sea
Love will conquer if U just believe
Oh yeah

It's only mountains
& the sea
There's nothing greater, oh
U & me

Once upon a time N a haystack of despair
Happiness sometimes hard 2 find, yeah
Africa divided; hijack N the air
It's enuff 2 make U wanna lose ur mind
But say it's only mountains & the sea
Love will conquer if U just believe
Oh yeah

It's only mountains
& the sea
There's nothing greater, oh
U & me

Guitars & drums on the 1, huh
Whoo
Ooh
Bobby on the drum (Yeah!)

It's only mountains (Oh yeah)
& the sea
& the girls say...
There's nothing greater, oh
U & me
Oh

Starvation
Ow!
Mountains, uh

Do U Lie?

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

When lie awake N my boudoir
think of U, dear
Do U think of me?
Or do U lie, do U lie?

When 'm N a sad & lonely mood, dear
cry 4 U, dear
Do U cry 4 me?
Do U cry, do U cry?

When need some1 2 talk 2
U'r not around
When need another human's touch
wear a frown cuz U'r uptown
Going down, going down, going down

don't lie, dear ( had 2 lie)
When say that 'm N love, mama (Mama, mama)
feel so good when U'r near (Mama, mama)
Tell me, do U feel it 2?
Or 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 need some1 2 talk 2 (Do U lie?)
U'r not around, U'r not around ( wear a frown)
When need another human touch (Tell me Y)
wear a frown cuz U'r uptown
(Tell me Y U wanna go & leave me all alone)
Going down, going down, going down
Going down, going down, going down
Going down, going down, down

When lie awake N my boudoir ( think of U)
think of U, dear (Do U?)
Do U think of me?
Or do U lie, do U lie?

Sometimes It Snows In April

Tracy died soon after a long fought civil war
Just after wiped away his last tear
guess he's better off than he was b4
A whole lot better off than the fools he left here
used 2 cry 4 Tracy cuz he was my only friend
Those kind of cars don't pass U every day
used 2 cry 4 Tracy cuz want 2 C him again
But sometimes, sometimes life ain't always the way

Sometimes it snows N April
Sometimes feel so bad, so bad
Sometimes wish that life was never-ending
& all good things, they say, never last

Springtime was always my favorite time of year
A time 4 lovers holding hands N the rain
Now springtime only reminds me of Tracy's tears
Always cry 4 love, never cry 4 pain
He used 2 stay so strong, unafraid 2 die
Unafraid of the death that left me hypnotized
No, staring at his picture realized
No 1 could cry the way my Tracy cried

Sometimes it snows N April
Sometimes feel so bad, yeah
Sometimes, sometime we wish that life was never-ending
(Sometimes wish that life was never-ending)
But all good things, they say, never last

often dream of heaven & know that Tracy's there
know that he has found another friend
Maybe he's found the answer 2 all the April snow
Maybe 1 day 'll C my Tracy again

Sometimes it snows N April
Sometimes feel so bad, so bad
Sometimes wish that life was never-ending
But all good things, they say, never last
But all good things, they say, never last
& love, it isn't love until it's had
