Lyrics to my favourite song “Time” from Prince’s album Art Official Age

LYRICS for Time from Prince’s album Art Official Age

TIME – from ART OFFICIAL AGE by Prince

From the first time I heard the album, Art Official Age last week (as you can see from my review), I loved this song. “Time” is forever destined to be one of those Prince classics, right up there with “The Ballad of Dorothy Parker”, “If I was your girlfriend”, “Something in the water” and “Joy in repetition”. Like those songs, the essential Prince, mood funk, (this is the best way I can describe it) really emerges. It’s like when he doesnt try, he gets down to his purest inner soul. That’s why I think I like his more minimalist albums so much, albums like Dirty Mind, Batman, New Powel Soul and even Tweny10, have a deep inner expression that only Prince can bring to us.

Enjoy the lyrics below.


its about time
its about time

<verse>
i think its about time
that I got time alone with you
alone with you

<girl>
I think I’m running out of patience
I think I’m running out of life
I think it’s about time I tell the truth
instead of these alibis

well well

<prince + girl>
I think it’s about time that I get time alone with you
Your so fine when I get mine baby you can too

no more peace and quiet I wonder why
a party full of drunken fools
I betcha some will be the rushing tide
splashes all over you

I dont want to work another day baby no no
I wish you gonna stay with me stay with me
I dont think it matters anyway
it dont matter girl
With you Im as rich as I can be

baby baby

I think it’s about time that I get time alone with you
I know you know
your so fine when I get mine
baby you can too
sho nu

<bass solo>

sugar well
Im thinking that you really need to be my pet
oh really?
and let you put you in my little cage
Im sick and tired of playing hard to get
when the animal is half my age
My heads so dizzy
spinning round and ronud
another dirty hotel room
another lonely town
lonely town

I need some time to rest
I need some time with you
this is what it feels like
know what I want to do
this is what it feels like baby
you know I want to tell you one more time

I think it’s about time that I spend time alone you
your so fine when I get mine baby you can too

I think I need you to be my girl
travel with me around the world
baby baby

with no paper that works out fine
but not half as fine as when I get time with you

I think it’s about time that I spend time alone you
sugar have you heard
keep breaking round
your so fine when I get mine baby you can too
’bout time got time alone with you
yoru so fine
get mine
baby you can too
baby baby you can too
ooh ooh ooh ooh uh h h

<hornz>
