Song lyric Sunday: breakfast/brunch/snacks/supper/dinner


For this week’s song lyric Sunday Paula (via Jim) has given us the prompts of breakfast/lunch/brunch/snacks/dinners/supper. Of course, the only thing that popped into my head straightaway was breakfast at Tiffany’s but I thought that quite a lot of people would probably end up thinking the same thing!
So, I decided to push a little bit deeper into my mind and I came up with breakfast can wait by Prince. The song itself is about sectors in the morning even though he knows it is going to make his girl even later! Pretty self-explanatory really! I hope you all enjoy it.

ey baby, where you going?
No please don’t rush off so soon
If you leave me like this
What I’m gonna do

Finally my eyes are open
I dream about you all night long
The only thing that I’ve been hoping for
Is before you to go to work babe, we get it on
I ain’t tryin’ to make you blush
But I just wanted to tell ya, I think you’re great
I know you’re late, but I need another taste
Breakfast can wait!

Grits and gravy, cheese eggs and jam
Can’t nobody cook it like you girl
No ma’am!
This here early morning, need something else on my plate
I think I want another bite of you
Breakfast can wait!

Breakfast can wait
You really put it on me
You shut it down last night
I thought the police was gonna come
Loud, yeah, quite
I ain’t tryin’ to make you blush
I just think you’re great
Ain’t no need to rush
Breakfast can wait

Finally my eyes are open
I dream about you all night long
The only thing that I’ve been hoping for
Is before you to go to work babe, we get it on
I ain’t tryin’ to make you blush
But I just wanted to tell ya, I think you’re great
I know you’re late, but I need another taste
Breakfast can wait!

Hotcakes smothered in honey
(Wait a minute)
I’m gon’ have to pass
Fresh cup of coffee, no, no
I’d rather have you in my glass
Only thing’s that gonna sweeten my tongue
Only thing that’s gonna last now
Is another bite of you babe
Breakfast can wait

Finally my eyes are open
I dream about you all night long
The only thing that I’ve been hoping for
Is before you to go to work babe, we get it on
I ain’t tryin’ to make you blush
But I just wanted to tell ya, I think you’re great
I know you’re late, but I need another taste
Breakfast can wait!
Breakfast can wait!

Can’t stop even if the ṗolice come
Breakfast can wait!
I got a double time, kick drum
Breakfast, breakfast
You can’t leave a black man in this state
Breakfast can wait!
Oh no
Breakfast, breakfast can wait!

Come here baby, let me put you on my plate
Hey now
Breakfast can wait!
Better call your job yeah
Breakfast can wait!
Tell ’em you gon’ be late
Breakfast can wait!
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Prince is in charge now
Nice one
Breakfast can wait!
Breakfast can wait!
Breakfast can wait!
You’re the only thing I need
Breakfast can wait!
Sweetness in my tongue
Breakfast can wait!
Come here baby, let me show you where I’m from
Breakfast can wait!
Yeah
Breakfast can wait!
Oh, you know you might need to pray for me
You might need to come again
Breakfast can wait!
Oh yeah-yeah

Breakfast Can Wait” is a song by American recording artist Prince. The single was released on February 5, 2013 on his website 3rdEyeGirl.com and was re-released on 3rdEyeTunes.com on August 17, 2013.

The accompanying artwork for the single features comedian Dave Chappelle of Chappelle’s Show dressed as Purple Rain-era Prince and serving pancakes, a scene from the 2004 sketch “Charlie Murphy’s True Hollywood Stories”.[2][3][4][5] In June 2014, Chappelle appeared on Jimmy Fallon‘s Tonight Show and discussed the use of his image on Prince’s single: “That’s a Prince judo move right there. … You make fun of Prince in a sketch and he’ll just use you in his album cover. … What am I going to do — sue him for using a picture of me dressed up like him? … That’s checkmate right there.”[6]

A remix EP, titled The Breakfast Experience, followed on October 24, 2013 on iTunes and on Amazon the next day. It was made available on 3rdEyeTunes.com on November 5, 2013. The song is included on Prince’s thirty-fourth studio album, Art Official Age, which was released on September 30, 2014.

  1. Prince must have spent some time in the South, as the is where they eat “Grits and gravy, cheese eggs and jam”. Really nice music Angie. Prince has a squeaky voice on this song, almost like a cartoon character, sort of like Donald Duck.
