Prince – It Takes 3 lyrics

It takes 3, you and me
And her 2 - tell me pretty baby what you wanna do

I've seen the future, baby, and it looks like you and I
All wrapped up in love that'll never die
Maybe I just want another 2 keep you happy while I'm away
A friend as special as you should never be lonely, a single day

It takes 3
If you ain't got a friend you can't be with me (Hey)
It takes 3

Nothin' I want 2 do will make you uncomfortable, I swear
Wherever my hands go, baby, it'll be cuz you put 'em there
I could be satisfied with talking about all we could do
But I'm wise enough 2 know that's the only way 2 get wit' you
And her 2


It takes 3
If you ain't got a friend you can't be with me
It takes 3

Check this out
You know my every thought if you think about it long enough
Don't ask me why, nothing's lost if you try
But 2 not, is 2 never know if you and me and her could flow
Let's go, let's go 2 the land of "Yes I will"
G'on put your foot up on that window sill

It takes 3
If you ain't got a friend you can't be with me (Hey)


Hell yeah, baby
Shake all that


Girl, you got something the whole world should see
I'm so proud of you
If I can't get a witness who'll believe it's true (It takes 3)
Nobody, that's why it takes 3
If you ain't got a friend you can't see me (It takes 3)
You can't see me

(It takes 3)
Fellows g'on and sing that I'm jettin'
(If you ain't got a friend you can't be with me)

Don't forget your rain coat
