    "Dorothy Parker" Lyrics

    Prince feat. New Power Generation

    Dorothy was a waitress on the promenade
    She worked the night shift
    Dishwater, blonde, tall an' fine
    She got a lotta tips

    Well, earlier I'd been talkin' stuff in a violent room
    Fightin' with lovers past
    I needed someone with a quicker wit than mine
    Dorothy was fast

    Well, I ordered, "Yeah, let me get a fruit cocktail, I ain't too hungry"
    Dorothy laughed

    She said, "Sound like a real man to me
    You kinda cute, you wanna take a bath?
    Do you wanna, do you wanna? Bath"

    I said, "Cool, I'm leavin' my pants on", "What you say?"
    "'Cuz I'm kinda goin' with someone"
    She said, "Sound like a real man to me
    Mind if I turn on the radio?"

    "Oh, my favorite song," she said
    An' it was Joni singin'
    'Help me I think I'm falling'

    Ring, the phone rang an' she said
    "Whoever's callin' can't be as cute as you"
    Right then an' there I knew I was through
    Dorothy Parker was cool

    Well, my pants where wet, they came off
    But she didn't see the movie 'cuz she hadn't read the book first
    Instead she pretended she was blind
    An affliction brought on by a witch's curse

    Dorothy made me laugh
    I felt much better so I went back
    To the violent room
    Tell us what you did, what you did?
    Let me tell you what I did

    I took another bubble bath with my pants on
    All the fightin' stopped
    Next time I'll do it sooner
    This is the ballad of Dorothy Parker

    Dorothy Parker, Dorothy Parker, Dorothy Parker
    Dorothy Parker, Dorothy Parker, Dorothy Parker
    Well, Dorothy Parker, Dorothy Parker, well
