Prince New Power Generation - Ballad of Dorothy Parker

Come on out here, Rhonda
Dorothy was a waitress on the promenade
She worked the night shift
Dishwater blond, tall and fine
She made a lot of tips, oh yes sir
Earlier I'd been talkin' stuff in a violent room
Fightin' with lover's past
I needed someone with a quicker wit than mine
Dorothy was fast, yeah yeah
I ordered - "Yeah, let me get a fruit cocktail and a pizza"
Dorothy laughed
She said - "Sound like a real man to me, now
You're kinda cute, you want to take a bath?"
Do you want to, bath?
And, I said - "Cool, I'm leavin' my pants on
Kinda goin' with someone"
"Sound like a real man to me
Mind if I turn on the radio?" G!
"Ah, my favorite song," she said
And it was Joni singing, ("Help me, I think I'm falling")
The phone rang and she said
"Whoever's calling can't be as cute as you"
Dorothy Parker was cool
Dorothy Parker, Dorothy Parker, Dorothy Parker {xto}
{audience repeats till end}
Hollywood, Hollywood, Hollywood
