„In his arms, my lady lay asleep, wrapped in a veil.
He woke her then and trembling and obedient
She ate that burning heart out of his hand;
Weeping I saw him then depart from me.“

„I've been wrapped around her finger
Since the first time we went out.
Every day and every night she's all I think about.
I need that girl beside me
When the lights go out.
I think it's time to put a ring on the finger
I'm wrapped around.“

„I was workin' part-time in a 5-and-dime.
My boss was Mr. McGee, huh.
He told me several... times
That he didn't like my kind cuz I was a bit 2 leisurely.
It seems that I was busy doin' somethin' close 2 nothin',
But different than the day before
That's when I saw her, ooh, I saw her,
She walked in through the out door... out door.She wore a raspberry beret
The kind U find in a second hand store
And if it was warm she wouldn't wear much more
I think I love her.“
— Prince American pop, songwriter, musician and actor 1958

„My veins are afire with music,
Her eyes have kissed me, my body is turned to light;
I shall dream to her secret heart tonight...“
