The Lyrics!!!! Around the World in a Day

The little 1 will escort U
2 places within your mind
The former is red, white, and blue
The ladder is purple, come on and climb

As a music arranger, I often get to the lyrics later... The Lyrics just hit me!!! What a gift that keeps on giving in this song...


Peace!!

A Liar Shall Not Tarry In My Presence
I will make you cyber shit in your pants!
What's the matter with your life
Is poverty bringing U down?
Is the mailman jerking U 'round?
Did he put your million dollar check

That might be too easy, so it's probably wrong.

I love this piece:

A government of love and music boundless in its unifying power
A nation of art 2 production
Sharing ideas, a shower of flowers

My Fave Prince song ever, I would love to own that Lyric/doodle page, doesn't Jill Jones have it? I remember seeing it in a video a while ago.

This must have been written before he recorded it, as on the album it is 'A wonderful trip through OUR time'

Really? never knew that, I'm in the UK so we didn't get the Purple Rain tour sad

Cool he published a song from his next album in a tour book for his previous album, before releasing it.

I always thought "the little 1" referred to himself in those lyrics.

He's got his patriotism blending into the purple ladder.

Welcome to "the org", laytonian… come bathe with me.
