The Lyrics

Prince has been known to count Jimi Hendrix among his musical influences, but what if he, not Hendrix, had been the predecessor? I can think of at least one song Jimi might have penned a bit differently.
Purple Rain all in my brain
Earworm just making me insane
Actin' funny - if you see me wince
'Scuze me while I finger Prince

Purple Rain all around
Don't know why some people like the sound
First on records, then on the big screen
Wherever I go, there's Prince singin' "Tamborine"

Help me
Help me
Oh, no, no

Ooo, ahhh
Ooo, ahhh
Ooo, ahhh
Ooo, ahhh, yeah!

Purple Rain atop the charts
Don't know how this counts as art
What's wrong with people - it gives me chills -
Are they born stupid, or taking crazy pills?

Help me
Ahh, yea-yeah, Purple Rain
Oh, no, oh
Oh, bathe me
Love me, love me, Purple Rain
I can't be led like this
Purple Rain
Can't seem to make up my mind
Purple Rain, n-no, nooo
Purple Rain
