Prince – Dorothy Parker lyrics

Come on out here, Rhonda

Dorothy was a waitress on the promenade
She worked the night shift
Dishwater blonde, tall and fine
She made a lot of tips, oh yessir

Earlier I'd been talkin' stuff in a violent room
Fightin' with lover's past
I needed someone with a quicker wit than mine
Dorothy was fast, yeah yeah

I ordered - "Yeah, let me get a fruit cocktail and a pizza"
Dorothy laughed
She said - "Sound like a real man 2 me, now
U're kinda cute, you wanna take a bath? "
Do you wanna, bath?

And, I said - "Cool, I'm leavin' my pants on
Kinda goin' with someone"
"Sound like a real man 2 me
Mind if I turn on the radio? " G!

"Ah, my favorite song," she said
And it was Joni singing, ("Help me, I think I'm falling")
The phone rang and she said
"Whoever's calling can't be as cute as U"
Dorothy Parker was cool

Dorothy Parker, Dorothy Parker, Dorothy Parker {x2}
{audience repeats till end}

Hollywood, Hollywood, Hollywood
