"When You Were Mine" as written by and Prince Rogers Nelson....
When u were mine
I gave u all of my money
Time after time
U done me wrong
Cause, just like a train
U let all my friends come over and eat
And u were so strange
U didn't have the decency to change the sheets

Oh girl, when u were mine
I use to let u wear all my clothes
U were so fine
Maybe that's the reason that it hurt me so
I know, that you're goin with another guy
But I don't care, cause I love u baby that's no lie
Love u more mine than I did when u were mine

When u were mine
U were kindasorta my best friend
So I was blind
I let u fool around
I never cared
I never was the kind to make a fuss
When he was there
Sleepin in between the two of us

I know, that you`re goin with another guy
But I don't care, cause I love u baby that's no lie
Love u more than I did when u were mine

When u were mine
U were all I ever wanted to do
Now I spend my time
Following him whenever he's with u
I know that you're goin with another guy
But I don't care, cause I love u baby that's no lie
Love u more than I did when u were mine

    General Commenti think shes definately realised its meant to be sung by a guy, but since she released it in the 80s era and she was portrayed as "weird" for her dress sence and hair styles she probably thought it would be funny to sing a song that was meant to be sung by the opposite gender so that she can encourage that "weird" image, that and she must of loved the song too. That's my opinion on the matter.
