Prince – Raspberry Beret lyrics
1 2 1 2 3


I was working part time in a five-and-dime
My boss was mr. Mcgee
He told me several times that he didn't like my kind
Cause I was a bit 2 leisurely

Seems that I was busy doing something close 2 nothing
But different than the day before
That's when I saw her, ooh, I saw her
She walked in through the out door, out door

She wore a
Raspberry beret
The kind you find in a second hand store
Raspberry beret
And if it was warm she wouldn't wear much more
Raspberry beret
I think I love her

Built like she was
She had the nerve 2 ask me
If I planned 2 do her any harm

So, look here
I put her on the back of my bike
And-a we went riding
Down by old man johnsons farm

I said now, overcast days never turned me on
But something about the clouds and her mixed

She wasn't 2 bright
But I could tell when she kissed me
She knew how 2 get her kicks

She wore a
Raspberry beret
The kind you find in a second hand store
Raspberry beret
And if it was warm she wouldn't wear much more
Raspberry beret
I think I love her

The rain sounds so cool when it hits the barn roof
And the horses wonder who you are
Thunder drowns out what the lightning sees
You feel like a movie star

They say the first time aint the greatest
But I tell ya
If I had the chance 2 do it all again

I wouldn't change a stroke
Cause baby I'm the most
With a girl as fine as she was then

(raspberry beret)
The kind you find (the kind you find)
The kind you find (in a second hand store)
Oh no no
(raspberry beret)
(and if it was warm)
Where have all the raspberry women gone? (she wouldn't wear much more)
Yeah (raspberry beret)

I think i... I think i... I think I love her

(raspberry beret)
No no no
No no no (the kind you find)
(in a second hand store)
(raspberry beret)
Tell me
Where have all the raspberry women gone? (and if it was warm she)
(wouldnt wear much more)
(raspberry beret)
I think I love...

    It's not a hidden nasty meaning in the song. Lot's of people has a very dirty mind. The song is not about sex, it's romantic. The girl wearing a raspberry color vintage round hat. It's artistic. She went out in the outdoor not the front door in the building. That's were they met he was there fixed his motorcycle. They liked each other at first sight. She was nervous a little and basically she told him I would take a ride with you and I hope you not hurt me. He took her into a nice grassy land were blue sky and little white puffy clouds. They had a romantic long kiss and talking knowing each other. Later on started to rain and they went into a an old empty farm house. The first time they were loving each other. He would do it with her again anytime and he think he love her and she thought the same.
