The Glamorous Life
Unreleased original version (Prince vox) recorded on December 27, 1983. Re-recorded w/ Sheila E. vox late March 1984 and released on album The Glamorous Life (June 4, 1984). Of note, one line was changed to "She saw him standing in the section marked" from Prince's version below. Written by Prince.

 
She wears a long fur coat of mink even n the summertime
Everybody knows from the coy little wink
The girl's got a lot on her mind
She's got big thoughts, big dreams and a big brown Mercedes sedan
What I think this girl, she really wants 2 b n love with a man

She wants 2 lead the glamorous life
She don't need a man's touch
She wants 2 lead the glamorous life
Without love it ain't much
Oh

She was alone n front of the section marked
"If U have 2 ask, U can't afford it" lingerie
She threw him bread and said, "Make me scream"
N the dark, what could he say?
Boys with small talk and small minds really don't impress me n bed
She said, "I need a man's man, baby, diamonds and furs
Love would only conquer my head"

She wants 2 lead the glamorous life
She don't need a man's touch
She wants 2 lead the glamorous life
Without love it ain't much
Oh
Ooh

They made haste n the brown sedan
They drove 2 55 Secret Street
They made love and by the 7th wave, she knew she had a problem
She thought real love is real scary, money only pays the rent
Love is 4ever, that's all ur life
Love is heaven sent, it's glamorous

Lead the glamorous life
She don't need a man's touch
She wants 2 lead the glamorous life
Without love it ain't much

She wants 2 lead the glamorous life
She don't need a man's touch
She wants 2 lead the glamorous life
Without love it ain't much, it ain't much
Lead the glamorous life
She don't need a man's touch
She wants 2 lead the glamorous life
Without love it ain't much, it ain't much

She wants 2 lead the glamorous life
She don't need a man's touch
She wants 2 lead the glamorous life
Without love it ain't much, it ain't much
Lead the glamorous life
She don't need a man's touch
She wants 2 lead the glamorous life
Without love it ain't much, it ain't much
Oh ooh

She wants 2 lead the glamorous life
She don't need a man's touch
She wants 2 lead the glamorous life
Without love it ain't much, it ain't much
Oh ooh
