Red Scarlett
Unreleased track recorded circa 1991. Written by Prince.

 
Hidden on the side of the pool facin' the sun
Ignoring the fool drinkin' Scotch on the rocks, ignoring everyone
She lowered her book, took off her sunglasses
That's when the fool laughed aloud
4 n his eyes she was so fine
Dark, mysterious and proud

Her name was Scarlett and the scarf was red
There's nowhere 2 hide when it's all n ur mind
There's nowhere 2 hide when it's all n ur mind (Oh)

She smiled and another cube of ice appeared right then n the glass
Like a camera lens, he panned her body
But stopped when he reached the last drop of Scotch
He decided she was n2 no 1 when she could've went back 2 her book
N the light of the sun her body commanded his every look
(Look at me...)

Her name was Scarlett and the scarf was red
There's nowhere 2 hide when it's all n ur mind
There's nowhere 2 hide when it's all n ur mind (Oh)

The conversation with others seemed worthless
So he dived n the pool 2 find
A place 2 hide from the thought of her
4 right there n the back of his mind was Scarlett
Yeah
N the pool she dived
Time and all creation stood still (Ooh)
Their eyes met 4 a 2nd longer than it took
4 them 2 fall n love against each other's will

Her name was Scarlett and she fell n love
Nowhere 2 hide when it's all n ur mind

The words on the page looked prettier n the afternoon sun
Lost n the fantasy, ignoring all the fools, ignoring everyone
She lowered her book, took off her sunglasses, and said

Her name was Scarlett and the scarf was red
There's nowhere 2 hide when it's all n ur mind
There's nowhere 2 hide (Scarlett) when it's all n ur mind
All n ur mind (Nowhere 2 hide) (Scarlett)
All n ur mind (When it's all n ur mind)
Her name was Scarlett and the scarf was red
Hear what I said?
