Prince – Erotic City lyrics

{b-side of lets go crazy}
{please note: there has been and always will be some debate over the interchangability of the words fuck & funk in this song. We leave it up to the listener to hear their preference}

I... I... I... I...
Erotic city
Erotic city

All of my purple life
I've been looking for a dame
That would wanna be my wife
That was my intention, babe

If we cannot make babies, maybe we can make some time
Thoughts of pretty you and me, erotic city come alive
We can funk until the dawn, making love til cherrys gone
Erotic city can't you see, thoughts of pretty you and me

Everytime I comb my hair
Thoughts of you get in my eyes
Ure a sinner, I don't care
I just want your creamy thighs

If we cannot make babies, maybe we can make some time
Thoughts of pretty you and me, erotic city come alive
We can funk until the dawn, making love til cherrys gone
Erotic city can't you see, thoughts of pretty you and me

All of my hang-ups are gone
How I wish you felt the same
We can funk until the dawn (til the dawn) (until the dawn)
How I wish you were my dame (baby wont you call my name)

If we cannot make babies, maybe we can make some time
Thoughts of pretty you and me, erotic city come alive
We can funk until the dawn, making love til cherrys gone
Erotic city can't you see, thoughts of pretty you and me

Baby, ure so creamy

If we cannot make babies, maybe we can make some time
Thoughts of pretty you and me, erotic city come alive
We can funk until the dawn, making love til cherrys gone (til the dawn)
Erotic city can't you see, thoughts of pretty you and me

If we cannot make babies, maybe we can make some time (you and me)
Some time, some time, some time, erotic city
If we cannot make babies, maybe we can make some time
Thoughts of pretty you and me, erotic city come alive

We can funk until the dawn, making love til cherrys gone (come alive)
Erotic city can't you see, thoughts of pretty you and me
We can funk until the dawn, making love til cherrys gone
Erotic city
