We Can Funk
Initial tracking with said title was recorded (w/ The Revolution) on June 17, 1986; it was later re-recorded (ft. George Clinton) and then as a duet below circa 1989. The released edited version appears as the 7th track on album Graffit Bridge (August 20, 1990). Another acoustic version was recorded (Andy Allo vox) on August 31, 2011 for her album Oui Can Luv (November 7, 2015). Written by Prince.

 
I'm testin' positive 4 the funk
I'll gladly pee n anybody's cup
And when ur cup overflow
I'm testin' positive and I'll pee some mo'

I could tell U stories till U get tired, I could play with ur mind
But U'd probably say that I was a liar so I won't waste ur time
I'm scared, although we just met, there's this energy between us
Let's just go somewhere, we can funk

I could say I'm sorry all my life, but that wouldn't b true
Hell yeah
I can say and do the things I like cuz I'm not U
I'm scared, although we just met, I want U so bad, baby
(I want U so bad) Take off my clothes, we can funk
Now

I said time was when we were stompin' 2 a funky thing (Ha ha)
That's when the time was jump 'em and funk 'em n the swing of things

Pump 'em and funk 'em (Yes, U're so beautiful)
Jump 'em and funk 'em (My princess, U're so smart)
Pump 'em and funk 'em (Honey doll, U got the glammest bod)
Pump 'em and funk 'em (No man could afford this work of art)
Every time I could I would compliment U on the things, the things that U b
Honey doll, we should make the real noise, U and me

I could tell U things 2 get U excited, things U never heard
Oh, U know the Kama Sutra? I could rewrite it using half as many words
I'm scared cuz if I don't kiss ya, I'm gonna go mad, baby
Take off my clothes, we can funk
Oh

I'm testin' positive 4 the funk
I'll gladly pee n anybody's cup
And when ur cup overflow (I'm testin' positive and I'll pee some mo')
Oh (Uh-oh, uh-oh)
Mm yeah (Uh-oh, uh-oh)
Uh-oh, uh-oh (We can funk)
Uh-oh, uh-oh (Oh)
Uh-oh, uh-oh (Ow!)
Uh-oh, uh-oh (Oh yeah)
Uh-oh, uh-oh (We can funk)
Uh-oh, uh-oh
Uh-oh, uh-oh (Wait a minute)
Uh-oh, uh-oh (Somebody say)
Uh-oh, uh-oh (We can funk)
Uh-oh, uh-oh {repeat}
Mm yeah! (Oh)
Closer

U can blow the candle out, baby (U can blow it out, baby, blow)
U can turn the candle on (U can blow well)
Whichever 1 U choose is alright (Whichever 1 U choose)
Cuz we're gonna do it all night long
If U want 2 undress me, baby (Undress me)
Shall I undress U?
U can leave ur clothes on if U want 2 (Talk 2 her brotha)
And I'd still do what I wanna do 2 U
Sex between 2 people is alright
If all the love n the world is what they got
As long as they're not tryin' 2 hurt nobody
Just as long as it's hot
Good Lord, baby, uh
I wanna make love 2 U, ooh
2 time, maybe 3, yeah
And if U want 2 go 4 or 5
Baby, that's alright with me
Let me tell U now, said I will b a little baby, yeah
I can b a big strong man
Whoo!
I can b a girl, a boy, I can b ur toy
All U have 2 do is ask! It's up 2 U!
Can funk me, baby
I'll funk U
We can funk 1 another
Whatever U want 2 do!
U got an electric ass, baby!
U got electric thighs, baby!
I can't wait no longer, child!
It's gettin' stronger, baby, open up ur eyes!
Whoo!
See this gold chain around my waist?
Huh, I wanna give it 2 U, yeah
When people tell me I got no taste
Then blow the candle out, let's see if it's true

We b funkin' over here and over there ain't shit {repeat}
