"Circle of Amour" as written by and Prince Rogers Nelson....
Mary, Claire, Denise and Belle
Best friends as far as I could tell
Cheerleaders except for Denise
She was the wild one
She was the beast
She was the one who named the group
The original gang of four
Mary, Claire, Denise and Belle
Circle Of Amore

Tenth grade Central in September
That was a year I remember
On this chilly cold afternoon
I overheard the gang in the locker room
Rendezvous, Mary's house
Dirty words and wine
Needless to say they all spend the day
Just counting time, counting time
Halfway through her history class
Denise she kindly raised her hand and asked
If she could be excused ("Can I be excused?")
Then she ran from school (ran from school) in a hurry,
The other girls, ooh they knew
This is what friends are really for
Mary, Claire, Denise and Belle
Circle Of Amore

Circle of amore

Imagination showed a window (imagination)
On a cold September day (ooh)
Leaves are brown (brown), passion sounds (ooh)
Memory self astray
Four hands in the place where the feet connect
(Gang of four)
Circle of sex
In the vicious race to maturity
They're almost phased from ecstasy
Sweat upon the necks of dames
Loser in the circle game
Cause memories are worth so much more (so much more)
Mary, Claire, Denise and Belle
Circle Of Amore

(Ooh)
Mary, Claire, Denise and Belle
Mary, Claire, Denise and Belle
Circle Of Amore

Mary, Claire, Denise and Belle
Mary, Claire, Denise and Belle
Circle Of Amore
Circle Of Amore

    Song MeaningThis one really reminds me of me and my 3 high school friends (all except that last verse!) but I took a different meaning from it all- b/c of some things I was going thru and what bound and broke our friendship apart.

    General CommentAnother obscure gem from the musical genius Prince. Evocative of a specific time & place in high school. Risqué. :)
