  • Lyrics
  • This double-entendre filled song is about a sexual encounter with a German girl. The lyrical content, though tame compared with some of his older raunchy tunes, might raise a few eyebrows due to Prince's commitment to the Jehovah's Witness faith. He told The Los Angeles Times January 8, 2009 that his studies of the some of more amorous characters in the Old Testament had influenced his thinking. Prince explained: "I've studied Solomon and David now. In biblical times sex was always beautiful. You come to understand that, and then you try to find a woman who can experience that with you."
  • The song title is also mentioned in Prince's "3121": "Bounce party y'all. It's going down people - Like the wall of Berlin." The actual Berlin Wall divided Germany's East and West Berlin until its fall in 1989.
