"Tamborine" as written by and Prince Rogers Nelson....
Oh my God here you are
Prettiest thing in life I've ever seen
Close my eyes what's it like
What's it like inside your tambourine?

Oh my God, there I go
Falling in love with the face in a magazine (uh oh, not again)
All alone by myself
Me and I play my tambourine

Long days, lonely nights
Long days, lonely nights

I don't care for one night stands
With trolley cars
That juggle seventeen
I just want to settle down and
Play around
My baby's tambourine

Tambourine what are you
Why are you the star of
All my dreams
(Star of all my dreams, are you a good tambourine)
Are you good, are you bad
Are you just unnecessary means

Trolley cars

Long days, lonely nights
Too bad we're not allowed to scream (yeah, yeah, too bad)
Guess that I'll stay at home
All alone and play my tambourine

The tambourine

    General CommentTamborine - a shallow drum with only one skin, played on with the hand, and having bells at the sides. A great instrument but very limited when played by itself.

    Prince is singing to a girl in a magazine while playing his tamborine.

    He's not interested in the hassle of juggling one night stands; he is staying at home playing his tamborine.
