9 Unforgettable Prince Lyrics

It is very difficult to narrow down Prince’s massive song catalog to just nine lyrics, but I was up for the challenge. Here we go:

9. “If I came back as a dolphin, would you listen to me then?” (Dolphin)

Talk about putting someone on the spot! But would you? (Listen to the song)

8. “If you set your mind free, baby, maybe you’d understand.” (Starfish and Coffee)

While Prince may have been talking to one person, this is just a line that is true for you and me in everything we do. Open your mind. (Listen to the song)

7. “Life is just a party, and parties weren’t meant to last.” (1999)

This is one of those songs that sounds so happy and dance-along-y, but this lyric pretty much sums up the entire vibe of the song. (Listen to it here)

6. “Honey, I know times are changing, it’s time we all reach for something new, that means you, too.” (Purple Rain)

A very nice way to say, “Change happens, deal with it.” (Listen to it here)

5. “You don’t have to be rich to be my girl. You don’t have to be cool to rule my world. Ain’t no particular sign I’m more compatible with. I just want your extra time and your kiss.” (Kiss)

This one is unforgettable, which is why you always sing it as “I just want your extra time and your………… KISS!” (Listen to it here)

4. “Why do we scream at each other? This is what it sounds like when doves cry” (When Doves Cry)

He must consider that screaming to be peaceful, because a dove’s cry sounds like this. (Listen to the song here)
