never meant 2 cause U any sorrow
never meant 2 cause U any pain
only wanted 2 1 time 2 C U laughing
only wanted 2 C U laughing N the purple rain

Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
only wanted 2 C U bathing N the purple rain

never wanted 2 B ur weekend lover
only wanted 2 B some kind of friend, hey
Baby, 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
only wanted 2 C U underneath the purple rain

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

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

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