Recorded circa 2003 and released as the 8th track on album Musicology (March 27, 2004). Written by Prince.

 
If U leave her now, U're never gonna 2 see her again
Never, no
She's gonna need a shoulder 2 cry on, she's gonna need a friend
She's gonna need a pillow case
Somethin' 2 put those tears on
And I've got some purple satin laces
1 second later than the second U're gone

She's gonna miss U at 1st but then she's gonna buy me things
That's when I'm gonna lay her across my piano stool and sing 2 her

Honey, I tried 2 tell him that U were the marrying kind
A faithful 1-man woman, best he would ever find
I guess he wasn't tryin' 2 hear that so there ain't nothin' left 2 say
I tried 2 tell him if U run 2 me, I... I won't run away

If U leave her now, U'll never get another glimpse
Ooh, I'm gonna lace her with enough ice 2 recap the pole
There might b another solar eclipse
She gonna find out what I like 4 my eggs
My bath water and how I like 2 b touched
I'm gonna put her on the same diet Missy went on
U know she eat 2 much 2night

She's gonna miss U at 1st, then she'll get used 2 me
All of the tricks I would try 2 make her take this ring and make love 2 me

I tried
Honey, I tried 2 tell him that U were the marrying kind
Talkin' about a faithful
A faithful 1-man woman, best he would ever find (Best he gonna ever find)
I guess he wasn't tryin' 2 hear that (He wasn't tryin')
So there ain't nothin' left 2 say (U already know what I got 2 say)
I tried 2 tell him if U run 2 me, I... I won't run away
Run away, run away, run away
Ah, ah
Don't run away
