Prince – The Marrying Kind lyrics

If you leave her now
Ur never gonna 2 c her again - Never
Now she's gonna need a shoulder 2 cry on
She's gonna need a friend
She's gonna need a pillow case - something 2 put those tears on
And Eye've got some purple satin lacys
1 second later than the second you gone

She' gonna miss you at first
But then she's gonna buy me things
That's when Eye'm gonna lay her
'cross my piano stool and sing 2 her

Honey, Eye tried 2 tell him
That you were the marrying kind
A faithful 1-man-woman
The best he would ever find
Eye guess he wasn't trying 2 hear that
So there ain't nothing left 2 say
Eye tried 2 tell him if you run 2 me
Eye won't run away

If you leave her now
U'll never get another glimpse
Eye'm going 2 lace her with enough ice to recap the polls
There might b another solar eclipse
She's gonna find...
...bath water hot enough 2 b touched (oh, man. Porkchop is hurtin')
Eye'm gonna put her on the same diet Missy went on
You know she eat 2 much
Tonight, she's gonna miss you at first
But then she'll get used 2 me
All of the tricks Eye would try
2 make her take this ring and make love 2 me


Run away
Don't run away
