I never meant 2 cause U any sorrow
I never meant 2 cause U any pain
I only wanted 2 1 time 2 see U laughing
I only wanted 2 see U laughing n the purple rain

Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
I only wanted 2 see U bathing n the purple rain

I never wanted 2 b ur weekend lover
I only wanted 2 b some kind of friend, hey
Baby, I could never steal U from another
It's such a shame our friendship had 2 end

Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
I only wanted 2 see U bathing n the purple rain

Honey, I don't want ur money, no no no
I don't even think I want ur love
If I wanted either 1, baby, I'd take me some money and buy it
I want the heavy stuff, I want the purple rain
I want the purple rain

Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
I only wanted 2 see U underneath the purple rain

Honey, I know... times r changing
It's time we all reach out 4 something new and that means U 2
U say U want a leader, but U can't seem 2 make up ur mind
I think U better close it and let me guide U 2 the purple rain

Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
Whoo!
If U know what I'm singin' about up here, c'mon raise ur hand
Purple rain, purple rain
I only wanted 2 see U, only wanted 2 see U n the purple rain

Ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh
