I guess I should've known by the way you parked your car sideways
That it wouldn't last
See, you're the kinda person that believes in makin' out once
Love 'em and leave 'em fast
I guess I must be dumb 'cause you had a pocket full of horses
Trojan and some of them used
But it was Saturday night, I guess that makes it all right
And you say - "What have I got to lose?"

And honey, I say little red Corvette
Baby, you're much too fast (Oh)
Little red Corvette
You need a love that's gonna last

I guess I should've closed my eyes when you drove me to the place
Where your horses run free
'Cause I felt a little ill when I saw all the pictures
Of the jockeys that were there before me
Believe it or not, I started to worry
I wondered if I had enough class
But it was Saturday night, I guess that makes it all right
And you say - "Baby, have you got enough gas?"
Oh yeah!

Little red Corvette
Baby, you're much too fast (Yes you are)
Little red Corvette
You need to find a love that's gonna last (Oh, oh)

A body like yours oughta be in jail
'Cause it's on the verge of bein' obscene
Move over, baby, gimme the keys
I'm gonna try to tame your little red love machine

Little red Corvette
Baby, you're much too fast
Little red Corvette
Need to find a love that's gonna last, hey hey

Little red Corvette
Honey, you got to slow down (Got to slow down)
Little red Corvette
'Cause if you don't, you're gonna run your little red Corvette right in the ground
(Little red Corvette)
Right down to the ground (Honey, you got to slow down)
You, you, you got to slow down
(Little red Corvette)
You're movin' much too fast, too fast
Need to find a love that's gonna last!

Girl, you got an ass like I never seen, ow!
And the ride...
I say the ride is so smooth, you must be a limousine

Ow!
Baby, you're much too fast
Little red Corvette
You need a love, you need a love that's, uh, that's gonna last
(Little red Corvette)
Babe, you got to slow down (you got to slow down)
Little red Corvette
'Cause if you don't, 'cause if you don't
You're gonna run your body right into the ground (Right into the ground)
Right into the ground (Right into the ground)
Right into the ground (Right into the ground)

Little red Corvette, oh

With only a day left in this deadly year, I think I see a theme developing in this set; Musical greats we lost in 2016:
Bowie, Leonard Cohen, Glen Frey, Greg Lake / Keith Emerson, Leon Russell and now Prince.

Here's a very long and very sad list:

Corvette tribute to Prince
Wow, had not heard this for a long time. It's 80's are showing.

cranking it all the way to 11 here in the office  <3
So long, Purple One!

Fully agree!!! This goes for all Prince-songs. Yeck! Please skip this artist known as Prince.

IMO some of  Prince's screams are right up there near Al Green (coolest controlled scream ever)
I've got to give this a 10 in the hope that it will encourage Bill to play it more (really don't care for "Purple Rain" at all).  Actually around 9.5 I think.  Now "Housequake" on the other hand.... ("...and if you ain't hip to the rare housequake?  Shut up! Already!  Damn!").

I remember watching a 'behind the music'-mentary or something similar where Carmen Electra was asked about doing the naughty with Prince. IIRC, she made a yawn gesture...

Just throwing it out there {#Twisted}

Regardless, the guy is unbelievably talented and I wish there were some deeper cuts of his work on RP.
...outstanding, very nearly godlike, just inspired groundbreaking genius...
{#Tongue}  Little Red Corvette indeed

Can't comment on the attraction issue, but any comaprison between Prince and Hannah Montana is either extremely ill-informed or a simple troll. A person may not like his music, which is fine....there is a lot of his stuff that I find unlistenable as well. But to deny his brilliance as a musician, singer, songwriter, and performer is criminally stupid.
 
I could not agree more.  Prince has charted his own course in the music industry and has fought to maintain control of his music. His commercial success in the 80's and his admittedly bizarre behavior at times tends to be all some ever look at.  Amongst most musicians I know (and I am not one) he is widely respected for his talent.

Miley Cyrus is a fabricated commodity completely controlled by an entertainment company for the purpose of separating money from the wallets of parents of undereducated adolescents.

LOL! Nice comparison :o). Here's a question for the grrlz on here: wtf is so sexy about Prince? Loads of women I've known say they wet themselves over him and that he's sex on legs, but to this str8 guy he just looks like a butt-ugly beanpole who needs a good feed. What is his attraction? Mind you, I've never figured why Russell Brand, a Prince lookalike IMO, is considered so fanciable.

Would you be of the same opinion if it was a big brown Delta 88? {#Eh}{#Lol}

How about Elmer Fudd's favorite?  Wazbewwy Bewway.
YAY!  This is one where I don't need the ratings to go to 11, just the speakers.

Exactly. More Prince would be quite welcome on RP...but why not play his better songs?
 
Second that.

For all you haters out there:
(pillaged remorselessly from Wikipedia)
As a guitar player I have to stand behind that last stat especially.
This song does not belong in the Radio Paradise playlist.

Technically, without the ' to signify a glottal stop you've written something that would be read as "Die Int".  Di' int would be better.
The Boss last night performing at the SB halftime was great, but Prince was just awesome a couple of years ago.


Time to party like it's 1999!!

Don't get me wrong... I like Prince.  I even admire his skill as a musician and a composer.  But of all the Prince songs in the world, and there are a lot, did you have to play this one?  {#Puke}
Back when . . . Prince was fun.

OH NO YOU DI  INT.........Please feel free to NOT  play this Crap  again, (Sucko-Barfo)  {#Puke}{#Stop}{#Puke}




thanks Bill

He is the best
I have to say that although I'm not a big Prince fan (or whatever he's calling himself these days) I do have a guilty fondness for this song.  Nice to hear it again.

This was overplayed in the 80's and hasn't gotten much better over time.

Also, DOES NOT BELONG ON RP!!!!!!

yay! thanks for this!

saw someone on stage this past saturday, at a Last Waltz revival type deal, who really reminded me of prince as he performed a couple songs. was fun.
Can someone please tell me what galaxy Prince came from?

This is a compliment, by the way.

Great song from the pioneer of the Minneapolis Sound.  Keep playing Prince. Maybe a little something from the Time?  Oh-ee-oh-ee-oh.
