Prince – 5 Women lyrics

It took 5 women 2 getcha off of my mind
It took 5 months, a plenty good wasted time
But it just took 5 minutes when I saw your face again
2 fall in love all over, I guess with you I'll never win

March was a cold one in more ways than one
Went down 2 the nightclub lookin' 4 the sun
Lookin' 4 a light that could brighten up a day
That's been darker than a hole since you went away

April usually brings showers
This time it was a hurtin' kind
This woman said she wanted my baby
I told her I'd have 2 be deaf, dumb, and blind
2 fall in love with someone that I barely knew
The baby would never really have a father
Cuz I still, cuz I still, cuz I still, still, still, huh
Be stuck on you

It took 5 women 2 getcha off of my mind
Get off my mind, baby
Fallin' in love all over... You I'll never win

May was her name, she was jumpin'
Jumpin' from plane 2 plane
Actress or model or somethin'
Can't even remember her first name

June brought an Easter bunny
Needless 2 say, hmph, that girl was late
Told a made-up story 2 a busy-body of our only date
What a sketch!

July was a heartbreak, extraordinary
Said I met this woman whose kiss was somethin' scary
It felt so much, so much like yours
But it only made me, made me want you more
She's gone, she's gone but U're still here
I want you very..., huh, it's you I fear

But it took 5 women 2 get you off my mind
It took 5 months, 5 months, a plenty good wasted time
But it just took 5 minutes and I saw your face again
I fell in love all over with you, I guess I'll never win
(I'll never win)
