Prince – On Your Own lyrics

Yeah
Oh, yeah, yeah

You probably wonderin' why I called you here
Somebody told me, mm, you were cryin' tears
Now I wanna know if this is true
Then tell me, baby, tell me, tell me
Why you wanna do the things you do?

Wanted everything that money could buy
Now U're broke and lonely and you don't know why
Don't bother callin' cuz there ain't nobody home

Mm, U're on your own (On your own)
Yeah, U're on your own (On your own)
Your love is gone (Love is gone)
U're on your own (On your own)

Listen...
She gave you diamonds
She gave you pearls
Ooh, she gave you boys, yes she did
She gave you girls, oh oh

She can't give you a love like this
The kinda lovin' that you can't resist
Don't bother callin' cuz there ain't nobody home

Mm, U're on your own (On your own)
U're on your own (On your own)

Looka here
La la la la la la la la la la la la, la da da, la da da, da {x2}

If I had a dime, ooh, and a nickel 2 (Ooh)
4 every wasted line that I heard from you (Ooh)
I could buy a mansion, oh yes I could, on a mountain top, ooh
Money, money, money jumpin' out of my pockets
It would never stop, ooh, help me Lord

U're fine as wine but if the truth be told
Won't nobody wantcha (when U're ass is old), you know it
You, you, you, you...

U're on your own (On your own)
Yeah, love is gone (Love is gone)
U're on your own (On your own)

Looka here
La la la la la la la la la la la la, la da da, la da da, da {x2}

Of all the years U've known me
3 times that and then some you owe me
Huh, U're on your own

Yeah, U're on your own
Ooh yeah (Ooh)
Your love is gone (On your own)
Your love is gone (Ooh)
Baby, baby, baby, baby, baby (On your own)
Your love is gone (Ooh)
Keep on walkin', I ain't talkin' (On your own)
U're on your own (Ooh)
Keep on walkin', I ain't talkin' (On your own)
U're on your own (On your own)
1 (On your own)
2 (Love is gone)
3 (On your own)
I'm outta here, ha ha ha (On your own)
(On your own) {fade out}
(Love is gone)
(On your own
