  • Lyrics
  • Prince usually gets the girl in his songs, but here he has met his match: he's trying to get a woman to love him even though she is a lesbian. >>

  • Dan from ChicagoI wonder if this song was about, or in some way inspired by, Lisa.
  • Leo from Westminster 1, MdFor the metal piece about a two-timer named Bambi, this is a tune from the second self-titled Bugs Bunny Looney Tunes Warner album, Prince Rogers Nelson made a loud entrance in Rock and crashed the party with a loud Fender! The man can play guitar! Forget the celebrity, weirdness and his somewhat questionable lifestyle, Prince is a genius and a modern day Beethoven when it comes to music! I rest my case.
  • Jessie from Saldotna, AkTHis song is amazing.
    I love Prince, and I myself and a Lezgirl.
    SO this song is realy great.
    It makes me laugh and smile.
