Song Meaning of Kiss by Prince


One of the bands in Prince's Paisley Park sphere, Mazarati, requested him for a song, Prince quickly whipped up an acoustic bluesy demo for them.


To the dismay of his label, Mazarati added a funk rhythm, but Prince was wise enough to take the song back, keeping some of producer David Z's arrangements and the band's backing vocals but dropping the bass line.


But Prince had the authority at that time to say, 'That's the single and you're not getting another one until you put it out.' The rest, as Z said in an interview, is history. His career was completely revived by that song, and a year later Warner Bros. was looking to sign artists that sounded similar.


It was the lead single from his eighth studio album, Parade in 1986 and it was a No. 1 hit worldwide, holding the top spot of the US Billboard.


Song lyrics of Kiss by Prince


You don't have to be beautiful

To turn me on

I just need your body baby

From dusk till dawn

You don't need experience

To turn me out

You just leave it all up to me

I'm gonna show you what it's all about

 

You don't have to be rich

To be my girl

You don't have to be cool

To rule my world

Ain't no particular sign I'm more compatible with

I just want your extra time and your

 

[Muah muah muah muah muah]

 

Kiss

 

You got to not talk dirty, baby

If you wanna impress me

You can't be too flirty, mama

I know how to undress me (Yeah)

I want to be your fantasy

Maybe you could be mine

You just leave it all up to me

We could have a good time

 

You don't have to be rich

To be my girl

You don't have to be cool

To rule my world

Ain't no particular sign I'm more compatible with

I just want your extra time and your

 

[Muah muah muah muah]

 

Kiss

 

Yes

I think I wanna dance

Gotta, Gotta

Little girl Wendy's parade

Gotta, gotta, gotta

 

Women not girls rule my world

I said they rule my world

Act your age, mama (Not your shoe size)

Not your shoe size

Maybe we could do the twirl

You don't have to watch Dynasty

To have an attitude

You just leave it all up to me

My love will be your food

Yeah

 

You don't have to be rich

To be my girl

You don't have to be cool

To rule my world

Ain't no particular sign I'm more compatible with

I just want your extra time and your

 

Kiss
