"Something In The Water (Does Not Compute)" as written by and Prince Rogers Nelson....
Some people tell me I got great legs
Can't figure out why you make me beg
Does not compute
Don't not compute
You think you're special, well so do I
Why do special women make me cry?
Does not compute
Don't not compute

Must be something in the water they drink
It's been the same with every girl I've had
Must be something in the water they drink
'Cause why else would a woman want to treat a man so bad?

Some people think I'm kinda cute
But that don't compute when it comes to why-O-you
It don't compute
Somethin' mama don't compute
What's the hangup, what's the scam?
Guess you think I'm just another one, one of your fans
It don't compute (don't not compute)
Somethin' honey don't compute (don't not compute)

Must be something in the water they drink
It's been the same with every girl I've had
Must be something in the water you drink
'Cause why else would a woman want to treat a man so bad?

I've got to get to you, baby
Some people think I'm kinda smart
Why must a fella stop with you before he starts?
It don't compute, mama
Somethin' don't compute
I'd buy you clothing, buy you fancy cars
But you gotta talk to me, baby, tell me who you really are

Must be something in the water they drink
It's been the same with every girl I've had
Must be something in the water you drink
Why else would a woman want to treat a man so bad? yeah

(Must be something in the water you drink)
(Does not compute)
(Don't not compute)
(Don't not compute)
(Must be something in the water you drink)
Bitch, you think you're special? (must be something in the water you drink)
So do I
(Second coming) (must be something in the water you drink)
Why in God's name do you want to make me cry?
(Must be something in the water you drink) why, why
(Must be something in the water you drink) I'd do anything for you, anything
(Must be something in the water you drink) why don't you talk to me?
Tell me who you are (must be something in the water you drink) don't do this to me
Please don't do this (must be something in the water you drink)

(Must be something in the water you drink)
Why, why?
I do love you, I do
Or else I wouldn't go through all the things I do

    General CommentPhenomenal song. I don't think there's another song ever recorded that utilized the Linn-LM1 drum machine to such devastating effect as Prince does on this cut. Prince was a genius at everything musically and the way he used the Linn-LM1 drum machine certainly fits that as well.

    And the vocal acrobatics from 2:24-2:45 - wow is all one can say. Truly amazing.
