Description


Handwritten working lyrics in pencil for ‘Gett Off’ by Prince, unsigned, two pages, 8.5 x 11, no date (circa 1990). The lyrics read, in full: “Hey little girly don't u wait I can see u had a hard day / Come on baby let yo hair down / Come on dance 2 the funky sounds / Glam Slam / Everybody grab a body pump it like u wanna party / Hey little girly what u doin’/ we should be at my crib screwin / knockin’ socks til the mornin’ light / you girlfriend welcome yeah sho u right / Hey little girl what u say / swing them big ol hips this day / I can show u how 2 do it / grab this body & let’s get 2 it / 3rd Hey little girl what u drinkin' / Let’s skip all that I was just thinkin / u + me = what a ride / if u was thinkin' was same we could continue / outside lay yo pretty body against a / parking meter. Slip yo dress down / like I was strippin' a Peter Paul's / Almond Joy let me show ya baby I'm a / talented boy. We can kiss in front / of everybody I don’t care. That’s right / I pulled your dress up Oh shit u ain’t / no underwear on. / I shoulda known / Butterscotch curly haired wish u had some draws on now stone / freak 2 the bone. I can't believe it / going home / So here we are at my Paisley crib / what u want 2 eat no toy I don't serve / ribs u better be happy that dress / is still on. I heard the rip u sat down /girl them hips is gone but that's / alright I clock them that way remind of / somethin James used to say / I like em fat I like em proud / U got 2 have a mother 4 me / Now move yo big ass round this way / so I can work on this zipper / 2night baby I'm a star & u're the big dipper.” In very good to fine condition, with overall creasing.

Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Prince's Personal Sound Engineer, Shane T. Keller.
