Songs in which Prince spells out the name of the song in the lyrics

Other thread about "Come" got me thinking.

Just as a diversion, what Prince songs feature Prince (or backup singers) spelling the name of the song, as part of the lyrics?


Offhand, I can think of...


C-O-M-E (live version, h/t to dodger for reminding me of this)

P-O-S-S-E-S-S-E-D

A-U-T (O-matic)

Any others?

D.M.S.R. is sung a few times in the background--just a little bit before the "Jamie Starr is a thief" section.

All good answers -- can't believe I forgot COOL.

And I haven't heard Rosie Gaines' T.R.O.U.B.L.E. but sounds like it might be in a similar category...
