Violet The Organ Grinder

Recorded summer 1991 (w/ The NPG) and released on the Gett Off maxi-single (August 12, 1991). Written by Prince.

 
Ah no!

I am Violet the organ grinder
And I grind all the live long day
I live 4 the organ that I am grinding
I'll die but I won't go away

Get off {repeat}
I am Violet the organ grinder
And I grind all the live long day
I live 4 the organ that I am grinding
I'll die but I won't go away
Ooh, wait a minute, I think U better trip on this
Ooh, wait a minute, I think U better trip on this

I was on my way 2 another room when an image of U sweetly
Appeared n the mirror, perhaps U recall
U and I were neatly n the middle of a crystal ball
And it now serves as a reminder on the wall of U and I
The organ grinder n the greatest concert of them all

I am Violet the organ grinder
And I grind all the live long day
I live 4 the organ I'm grinding
(I live 4 the organ that I am grinding)
I'll die but I will not go away
(I'll die but I won't go away)

Did U know that I still have ur stockings?
I keep 'em n a drawer next 2 ur brassiere
Come hither, my sweet, lend me ur attention
Come hither, lend me ur ear
I do believe my piano was stolen
I do believe that U want me near
Well, I can deal with a sucker if he's n ur mouth
But I can't deal with insincere
I am the 1 that lives n ur heart
U love me no matter what U say
Swear U don't miss the organ grinder grinding on U every day

I am Violet the organ grinder
And I grind all the live long day (Check this out)
Get off {repeat}
Ooh, wait a minute, I think U better trip on this

I took all the pictures U gave me
And I placed them right under my bed
And I pumped and I pumped till the 'gasm so much as jumped
From my feet 2 the top of my head, oh boy!

I am Violet the organ grinder
And I grind all the live long day
I live 4 the organ that I'm grinding
(I live 4 the organ that I am grinding)
I'll die but I will not go away
(I'll die but I won't go away)
Uh...
Get off {repeat}
Ooh, wait a minute, I think U better trip on this

Like a puppy, I licked ur devotion
From ur neck, from ur eyes, from ur ears
When U cried, I became ur emotion
And if U ever cry like that again, I'll b here
Get off {repeat}

Cuz I am Violet the organ grinder
And I grind all the live long day
I live 4 the organ I'm grinding
(I live 4 the organ that I am grinding)
I'll die but I won't go away
Not even...

Peace 2 everybody
Ganster power
Who turn the mother out? Ask somebody
{repeat chants}

Eat me
Ow! I am Violet the organ grinder
And I grind all the live long day
I live 4 the organ that I am grinding
I'll die but I won't go away (Ooh)
