"Lolita" as written by and Prince Rogers Nelson....
Hush child, or I'll close your pretty mouth

Lolita spread your pretty legs so daddy can see just were he wants to play
The sun shines through your fancy dress
Put your little body on display
And I didn't mean to hit you so hard

I didn't mean to push you to far away
I didn't mean to hurt you so bad
I didn't mean to push you to far away
For you to come back home

Lolita, stay, oh I can't hold anybody else
Lolita, go, I can't stand to see you play around

Every scar I leave on you
It reminds me of how it used to be
You're just a little play thing
How come you mean so much to me

Stay with me, runaway, stay with me, hide away
Stay with me, get away
Stay with me, go away
Say with me, run away
I want you to go, I want you to stay

Lolita, stay, I can't hold anybody else
Lolita, go, I can't stand to see you play around
I'm gonna tell you the way it's gonna be from now on

You're always going to be my little girl

Lolita, you, you can't stay, cause I won't keep you
And, baby, you, you can't go, cause I won't let you
Maybe I've asked for too much
Maybe I shouldn't care

But why the heaven would you wanna stay
And why the hell would I want you
Yeah, I really want you
And I tell you, it doesn't...

No matter what you ask, I'm gonna let you down
I'm never, ever, ever gonna be forgiven
Just stay with me child

    General CommentNo comments? what the hell?
    GREAT song, threads a very thin ice path to explain just how a pedophile feels. How he knows what he's doing is completely wrong, but he can't seem to run from his own demons and ends up in a paradox: whether to leave lolita, even though he doesn't have anybody else, or to stay her and continue suffering (but loving).

    "No matter what you ask I'm gonna let you down"

    Two of my favorite lines from any song.
