"Alphabet St." as written by and Prince Rogers Nelson....

I'm going down to Alphabet Street
I'm gonna crown the first girl that I meet
I'm gonna talk so sexy
She'll want me from my head to my feet

Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yes she will
Yeah, yeah, yeah (Yeah)
Yeah, yeah, yeah

I'm gonna drive my daddy's Thunderbird (My daddy's Thunderbird)
A white rad ride, '66 ('67) so glam it's absurd
I'm gonna put her in the back seat
And drive her to Tennessee

Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, Tennessee
Yeah, yeah, yeah, drive her

Excuse me, baby
I don't mean to be rude
But I guess tonight I'm just not, I'm just not in the mood
So if you don't mind (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
I would like to watch

Yeah, yeah, yeah can I?
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah (Can I, can I, can I, can I)

We're going down, down, down, if that's the only way
To make this cruel, cruel world hear what we've got to say
Put the right letters together and make a better day

Yeah, yeah, yeah, better days
Yeah, yeah, yeah, it's ok
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Maybe it's the only way
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Cat, we need you to rap
Cat, we need you to rap
Don't give to us slow
Cause we know you know
New power soul
Gotta gotta gotta go!

Talk to me lover
Come on tell me what you taste
Didn't your mama tell you
Life is to good to waste? (Put your love down)
Didn't she tell you
That Lovesexy was the glam of them all?
If you can hang, you can trip on it
You surely won't fall (Put your love down)
No side effects and
The feeling last for-ever
Straight up it tastes good
It makes you feel clever (Put your love down)
You kiss your enemies
Like you know you should
Then you jerk your body
Like a horny pony would (Put your love down)
You jerk your body like a horny pony would
Now run and tell your mama about that!

And while you're at it tell your papa about this

Yeah yeah

Put your love down there when you want to get shot

No! (Yeah, yeah)

Put your love down there when you want to get shot

Put your love down there

Get home, Alphabet Street



Yea, oh, Alphabet Street

A B C D E F H I love you

    General Commentonly prince could put out a song thats very explictly about oral sex that a) doesnt get at all censored and b) manages to assume a marvin-esque "change the world" spiritual stance as well. this song distills the philosophies of prince's entire career into 5 and a half minutes: god is love is sex is music. bring on the better day.

    General CommentThe lyrics are missing the "G" because that's the key the song is written in. So it's already there! :)

    General CommentA great song all about cunnilingus, borrowed from a comedy routine by the late comedian Sam Kinison in which he uses his tongue to trace the letters of the alphabet on his lady's genitals,even spelling out certain words (Tennessee).

    General CommentI heard somewhere that the video contained hidden messages to his fans about not buying the 'Black Album'. Can anyone confirm this and also tell me where in the clip - I've watched it countless times and can't find it!!
