"Ah, good evening Mr. Day, two for dinner?" (waiter)
Yes, give us one of those little sexy tables in the back
"Oh, I'm sorry sir, those are all taken" (waiter)
"Ung! I think we can arrange it Mr. Day" (waiter)
Thank you so much
"Oh Morris, was that necessary?" (woman)
"Ok, I''m sorry" (woman)
"Right this way sir" (waiter)

You know, this is an exciting establishment you have here
"What I wouldn't give for a broken bottle" (waiter)
I can't hear you, what'd you say?
"I said, I said, yes, we're remodeling" (waiter)
Mm, hmm
"Cocktails before dinner?" (waiter)
Yes, two Pina Coladas
"Make mine a virgin" (woman)
"Ok, will you be having a virgin as well?" (waiter)
Yes, for dessert, ha ha ha ha ha!

"Sir, I'm afraid I don't get it" (waiter)
Say, do you know how to do the Walk?
"Why certainly, everyone can do the Walk" (waiter)
Well honey, why don't you walk your ass
To the other side of the room?
"Fuck you too" (waiter)

Ah my dear, it's rough at the top
Jerome, get your pad and pencil
I think it's gonna be kinda right
If my judge of character is correct
It's gonna be by the letter tonight
Now stop me when I get to 17

Excuse me, baby
I bet you didn't know I had a piece of this restaurant
Did you?
But it looks like I'm gonna have to buy the whole thing
And fire that man, uhn may I taste that?
Excuse me, that's kinda weak, here try mine, you know
"Good god" (woman)
They say that Saliva is an aphrodisiac

You look so lovely tonight
"Why, thank you" (woman)
Probably even better under exotic red lights
I wish you could see my home, it's, it's so exciting
In my bedroom I have a brass waterbed
"Really?" (woman)
Mm hmm, it's just surrounded by plants and lights and shit
And all kinds of erotic artifacts
That we could have breakfast in bed

I have an Italian cook, Jerome
Sa sa sagagagracci or something like that
It's funny, your eyes, when you stare at me like that
It causes my, my stomach to quiver
Oh lord
Do you like diamonds?
"Mm hmm" (woman)
"Yeah" (woman)
I know it's rather masculine, but try this one on

My god darling, it fits, you must have strong hands
But they're so soft like the oils in my morning bath
"Somebody help me" (woman)
"Yeah" (woman)
I'm not usually so forward
But would you like to make love to me?
"Mm hm" (woman)
I, I could make it so nice

Do you know what is meant by the words, uhh?
I hate to use them
They're so harsh, American you know what I mean?
And yet, on the other hand, they're exciting words
The words "Chili Sauce"
Oh lord!

You know, I haven't made love in so long but
With you I know it would be just like riding a bike
And remember everything I've ever learned
Baby if the Kid can't make you come, nobody can
"Morris" (Jerome?)
"17" (Jerome?)
Oh, um
What's it gonna be baby?
"Chili Sauce" (woman)
Oh lord!

*Prince played the part of the waiter
*Sharon Hughes played the part of Morris' woman

    General CommentThe 17 the song is referencing is the 17 ways Morris is seducing the woman he's with. This composition by Prince was originally titled "Proposition 17" in it's early stages (although it is said that the song is the original but re-titled).

    Some of the lines/lyrics from this song was used in the movie Purple Rain. In earlier scripts (when the movie was called Dreams), almost every line in this song was used.

    Just some little facts :)
