  • She wears a long fur coat of mink
    Even in the summer time
    Everybody knows from the coy little wink
    The girl's got a lot on her mind

    She's got big thoughts, big dreams
    And a big brown Mercedes sedan
    What I think this girl
    She really wants, to be in love with a man

    She wants to lead the glamorous life
    She don't need a man's touch
    She wants to lead the glamorous life
    Without love it ain't much

    She saw him standing in the section marked
    If you have to ask you can't afford it lingerie
    She threw him bread and said make me scream
    In the dark what could he say

    Boys with small talk and small minds
    Really don't impress me in bed
    She said I need a man's man baby
    Diamonds and furs
    Love would only conquer my head

    She wants to lead the glamorous life
    She don't need a man's touch
    She wants to lead the glamorous life
    Without love it ain't much

    They made haste in the brown sedan
    They drove to fifty five Secret street
    They made love and by the seventh wave
    She knew she had a problem
    She thought real love is real scary
    Money only pays the rent
    Love is forever that's all your life
    Love is heaven sent it's glamorous, lead

    The glamorous life
    She don't need a man's touch
    She wants to lead the glamorous life
    Without love it ain't much, it ain't much

    She wants to lead the glamorous life
    She don't need a man's touch
    She wants to lead the glamorous life
    Without love it ain't much, it ain't much

    Lead, the glamorous life
    She don't need a man's touch
    She wants to lead the glamorous life Writer/s: Prince Rogers Nelson
