Vault Tracks Part 1 (disc 4)

I Could Never Take The Place Of Your Man (1979 version)

It was only last June when her old man ran away
She couldn't stop cryin' cuz she knew he was gone 2 stay
It was 10:35 on a lonely Friday night
That's when 1st saw her
Ow! She was lookin' alright

asked if she wanted 2 dance
& she said that all she wanted was a good man
She wanted 2 know if thought was qualified, yeah

& said, "Baby, don't waste ur time
know what's on ur mind, yeah
may B qualified 4 a 1-night stand
But could never take the place of ur man"
Ooh yeah...

It hurt me so bad when she told me with tears N her eyes
He was all she ever had & now she wanted 2 die
He left her with a baby & another 1 on the way
& she couldn't stop cryin' cuz she knew he was gone 2 stay, yeah

She asked me if we could B friends
& said, "Oh, honey baby, that's a dead end
U know & know that we wouldn't B satisfied"
Yeah

& said, "Baby, don't waste ur time
know what's on ur mind, well
won't B satisfied with a 1-night stand
could never take the place of ur man
But 'll try, yeah, oh Lord
'll sure as hell try"

Honey, 'll try, yeah

Place of ur man, yeah

All My Dreams

All my dreams {repeat}

'll C U 2night N all my dreams
All my dreams
My spirit's N flight N all my dreams
All my dreams
A submarine valiantly conquers a virgin sea
A child is born, a child is born
Will U marry me?

'll teach U 2night N all my dreams
All my dreams
U'll B so surprised at things U'll C
All my dreams
Africa, Cap'n Crunch, Norma Jean, sex & Cheerios
Play my record double speed
& feel the climax fit 4 a king
Just fun - nothing ethereal

Here ye, here ye, 1 & all
The double speed playhouse is making a call

Welcome, this is where live
This is where dream my dreams
2night we'll make love until the world stops turning
U R small but very strong
U move like a cat
Quickly but gentle
So insane
He caressed her N her eyes
& licked her abdomen
She shivered with delight
Over & over she nibbled his ear
U'd think it was wrong 2 have so much fun
He held her tightly until it almost hurt
But his hips - they moved so slowly
She wanted 2 stop breathing
U can feel every curve of ur womanhood
U can C every thought N his brain
A submarine slowly moves thru the virgin sea
Oh so slowly, she wants 2 stop breathing
U can feel every curve

Lisa, 'm gonna give U the brush
& U'r gonna paint the side of the train

She squeezes tighter as the submarine goes deeper N depth
N2 unnavigated territory
A smile, ever so slight, appears on his face
So she starts 2 cry
So they come 2gether slowly
They wish 4 something
As if they could C a parallel future N the sea
They do not speak
They only stare
Out this moment N time

Marry me 2day & 2night we'll make love
Until the world stops turning

'm dreaming of a world
Wherein there shines the sun
Wherein there gleam the stars
Wherein there lie the stones
Gentle, but quickly

La la la la...
We'll travel 2night N all my dreams
All my dreams

All my dreams, all my dreams
Goodness will guide us if love is inside us
The colors R brighter
The bond is much tighter
U know no child's a failure until the blue sailboat
Sails him away from his dreams (Yes)
Don't ever lose, don't ever lose
Don't ever lose ur dreams
Yeah!

Can I Play With U?

Yeah...!
Prince

Wonderful Day (original version)

Oh

Sometime can't make up my mind
Don't know which yellow brick road 2 take
Everybody makes suggestions but the words don't rhyme
Decisions they don't have 2 live by R easy ones 2 make
Y can't they love me 4 what am
Instead of what they want me 2 B?
A true love, 2gether-minded
2 open fantasies

It's a wonderful day, baby
2night'll B a wonderful night

Ain't nobody's fault but ur own
If U don't do what U want
But U got 2 know what U want 1st

Lose all their hunger or their thrist

Nevertheless...
It's a wonderful day, baby
2night'll B a wonderful night

Thank God gets N the way (Sha sha, ooh)
Gives a kiss on the cheek (Sha sha, so wonderful)

Piano instrumental recorded by Lisa Coleman on March 10, 1986.

The Ballad Of Dorothy Parker (w/ horns)

Dorothy was a waitress on the promenade
She worked the night shift
Dishwater blonde, tall & fine
She got a lot of tips

Well...
Earlier 'd been talkin' stuff N a violent room
Fightin' with lovers past
needed some1 with a quicker wit than mine
Dorothy was fast

Well...
ordered
"Yeah, let me get a fruit cocktail, ain't 2 hungry"
Dorothy laughed
She said, "It sound like a real man 2 me
U'r kinda cute, do U wanna take a bath?"
(Do U wanna, do U wanna?)
Bath

Oh, said, "Cool, but 'm leavin' my pants on
("What U say?")
Cuz 'm kinda goin' with some1"
She said, "Sound like a real man 2 me
Mind if turn on the radio?"

"Oh, my favorite song," she said
& it was Joni singin', "Help me, think 'm falling"
Brrring! The phone rang & she said
"Whoever's callin' can't B as cute as U"
Right then & there knew was thru
Dorothy Parker was cool
Well...

My pants were wet, they came off
But she didn't C the movie cuz she hadn't read the book 1st
Instead she pretended she was blind
An affliction brought on by a witch's curse
Dorothy made me laugh (Haha-haha)
felt much better so went back, huh, 2 the violent room
(Tell us what U did, what U did)
Let me tell U what did

took another bubble bath with my pants on
All the fighting stopped
Next time 'll do it sooner
This is the ballad of Dorothy Parker
Dorothy Parker...
Dorothy Parker...

Well...
Dorothy Parker, Dorothy Parker
Well...
Oh

Girls should B girls

A Place In Heaven

She wants a place N heaven
But she can not face the truth
She lives on a rope of self-pity
It only requires a noose
Y R the ones so afraid 2 live
Much more afraid 2 die?
It's as easy 2 imagine laughing
When U really hear a cry
& they sound the same
& they sound the same

U want a place N heaven
Maybe U'r already there
Life's what U make it
Stop whining, baby
Love comes 2 those who care

There must B children N heaven
Ones who know nothing from hate
3-year-old leaders of all colors
'd feel safer with them N control...
3-year-olds N control

We all want a place N heaven
Suites of that level R few
Let's not B lazy
There's no room service
It's all up 2 me & U
Let's not B lazy
There's no room service
It's all up 2 me & U

Nevaeh Ni Ecalp A

Instrumental w/ "A Place In Heaven" lyrics played backwards

In A Large Room With No Light

Lana drew a picture N school 2day
1 that made her mother cry
A picture of a woman with a drink N her hand
Standing by a child with no eyes
Washington reaction based upon revenge
Babies blown 2 kingdom come
Damn the logic
Cartoon characters look better when they'r on the run
Danny dropped the dime on his girlfriend
He said he didn't wanna go 2 jail alone
The seed lives N the same mind
With the thought that says we all should B stoned
& people lookin' 4 angels N the sky
Whenever they'r broken-hearted
Love is grown, seeds R sown
Fires don't burn unless it's started
La la la... sha la la...

Did U ever feel that life was like lookin' 4 a penny
N a large room with no light?
A sophisticated mass-produced cacophony
Of knowin' situations that aren't right
Sha la la...

Every time U wake up
There's another motherfucker (R U happy?)
Talkin' big stuff N ur face
U only get the kind of people
That open their mouth just 2 swap feet
Welcome 2 the rat race
Oh, oh

Did U ever feel that life was like lookin' 4 a penny
N a large room with no light?
A sophisticated mass-produced cacophony
Of knowin' situations that aren't right
Oh
If U could just pass ur history class
Maybe life would B alright
Until then U'll B lookin' 4 a penny
N a large room with no light
Yeah
Sha la la...

Light {repeat}

Instrumental written by Prince & Eric Leeds
Recorded w/ The Revolution on July 9, 1986.

Eggplant

That kind of girl's no good 4 U
She flips her hair & thinks she's cool
Giggles at every joke U tell
Ask her religion: she'll say swell
Starving children - now that's hot
Long as she's eating, damn the lot
Queen of England, Duke of Earl
They ain't got nothin' on this girl

She change sheets with a different key
Not as bad
Guinness couldn't count all the men she's had
But U won't B satisfied till U marry the hag
Give birth 2 an eggplant
Oh, what a drag

That kind of girl's no good 4 U
All she would want 2 do is U
There's always 8 women 2 3 men
But if U marry an eggplant
Oh, what then?

She change sheets with a different key
Not as bad
Guinness couldn't count all the men she's had
But U won't B satisfied till U marry the hag
Give birth 2 an eggplant
Oh, what a double-drag

La la la...
Doo doo doo...
If U marry an eggplant

Everybody want what they don't got, oh

Adonis And Bathsheba

Ooh...

2 an orgy N a garden of flowers
Adonis & Bathsheba flew
All of creation awaits them
Flamingos stand by the crystal blue
Stream of desire & erotic rebellion
That parades thru their hearts & minds
They look at 1 another as much as they don't
2 touch is their need
2 love they R blind
2 love they R blind
Ooh...

An abandoned gazebo houses
What looks 2 B a perfect place
They undress as they'r running
Bathsheba crying
Adonis - sweat upon his face
4 them there is no morning
Only night decisions so grand
There is no bed
How will they ever love?
They decide 2 stand
No bed - they decide 2 stand
Ooh
Oh (Yeah)
Ooh...

Adonis & Bathsheba N a garden of flowers
N a garden of love!

The Cocoa Boys

Over on the east side across the river
There was a band called the Cocoa Boys
Their leader was a brother named Frankie, hmph
He was the ladies' pride & joy
Yes he was
Now Frankie had a brother named Joe
& they shared the high-part harmonies
Joe played the bass
Frankie played guitar
& people, mean they was 2 funky
& every Sunday night up on the main strip
There always was a battle
A musical battle of the bands
& if U had the courage
If U had the style
If U had a different trip
U'd have an extra hundred dollars N ur hands
(1 double 0 - hundred dollars)
Hahaha

There was an argument as 2 who was gonna go on 1st
guess U could say the Cocoa Boys won (No!)
Yeah
Cuz they had a trombone player the size of a house
Who considered whoopin' punks like us fun
"Alright y'all, what's it gon' B?"
Their show started
Lights were turned off - turn 'em off!
& N the distance the horns blared
The band was on stage
could sorta C Frankie smilin'
Needless 2 say, we were... sorta scared

A single light caught a 3-man (2-man)
Or was it 2? (It was 2, man)
They had a 2-man horn section walkin' thru the front door
Playin' the funkiest line 'd ever heard
Frankie started laughin' & the... people roared
Cocoa Boys
Pride & joy, huh
Give the people what they need
Make my ears bleed, Lord
Turn the music up, uh
Cocoa, don't let me down
If U can do it right
U can hear my body sounds
Uh, can U hear it?
Uh, can U hear it, baby?
Uh, can U hear it?
Uh, Cocoa Boys - la la la
Cocoa Boys - la la la
Cocoa Boys - la la, yeah

They kicked 4 30 minutes
But they funked so hard
The crowd could hardly walk
We knew we had 2 jam
We knew we needed a little scam
We knew we needed 2 have a talk
We need 2 have a talk
Turn the house lights up!
Give me the mic
Let me start my shit

Turn the house lights up!
Cousin gonna hit a lick on the drum
Band gon' thump all night long
Play ur chords N the low, uh
Let the horns blow, whoo

Yo Frankie, check it out
Me brothers got somethin' 4 y'all, huh
Everybody jump down on the floor
& do that "Detroit Crawl"
Whoo!

That kinda worked cuz crowd gettin' tired
But we wanted them suckers 2 beg
Huh, the drummer just jumped on the rim
& started 2 ride
We hit the wooden leg
Whoo! Get wit it

The crowd started rockin'
We knew we couldn't lose
We slapped 5, huh
Jump 2 the side

We're not deranged

Wonderful Day (12" mix)

Oh
Sometimes can't make up my mind
don't know which yellow brick road 2 take
Everybody makes suggestions but the words don't rhyme
Decisions they don't have 2 live by R easy ones 2 make
Y can't they love me 4 what am
Instead of what they want me 2 B?

Oh!
It's a wonderful day, baby
2night'll B a wonderful night

It's nobody's fault but ur own
If U don't do what U want
ain't claimin' no group solution
That'll work 4 every1
Just a simple little pop psychology that says...

Oh!
It's a wonderful day, baby
2night'll B a wonderful night

Thank God gets N the way (Sha sha, ooh)
Gives a kiss on the cheek (Sha sha, so wonderful)
That'll, uh, that'll make it alright (Right, wonderful)
Make it, make it, make it alright (Right)
Yeah

Yeah... whoo!
It's a wonderful day, baby
2night'll B a wonderful night (Oh, huh)
Yeah, bop bop bop bop
Bop bop bop bop

Oh!
It's a wonderful day, baby
2night'll B a wonderful night

Ain't nobody's fault but ur own
If U don't do what U want
But U got 2 know what U want 1st
More of a problem
Soon as they care, it gets irrational, huh
Lose all their hunger or their thrist

Nevertheless...
It's a wonderful day, baby
2night'll B a wonderful night

Thank God gets N the way (Sha sha, ooh)
Gives a kiss on the cheek (Sha sha, so wonderful)
That'll, uh, that'll make it alright (Right, wonderful)
Make it, make it, make it alright (Right)
Yeah

It's a wonderful day, baby
Oh! Huh
It'll B a wonderful night

Insecurities never make no money
Animosity kills boys & girls
Oh (Wonderful day, wonderful)
It's a wonderful day, baby (Wonderful day)
Y can't U C, Y can't U C?

Sometime can't make up my mind
Don't know which yellow brick road 2 take
Everybody makes suggestions but the words don't rhyme
Decisions they don't have 2 live by R easy ones 2 make
Y can't they love me 4 what am
Instead of what they want me 2 B?
A true love, 2gether-minded

Wonderful day, wonderful

Party, mama, U & me, uh uh
