  • "I used to think that Prince and I would have been friends during the duration, during our whole lives. Because we had a really strong friendship… You can be with people for 10, 12 years, it’s phases of your life, you just close the book and you just put it on the shelf. So, it’s so bizarre when people ask anything about him, it was just a phase in my life."
    Jill Jones on whether her and Prince still keep in touch

    Let me tell you a story

    My favorite band in life is playing town on Wednesday’s night
    I wish to God, I had the nerve to go
    The singer in the band is my type, not too big or small
    But I hate to let my inner feelings show

    My made-up name is Vanity ‘cause a girl’s best friend’s her pride
    And a working girl don’t have to tolerate the mailman’s tricks
    Everybody gets three years of tribulation unless they lie
    But with the female, 3 x 2 = 6

    When I’m older, I wanna be a movie star just like Greta Garbo
    Well, then I could tell everybody what to do
    Well, she was so cool, it was plain to see that she was in control
    I bet she never played the part of anyone’s fool

    So, my made-up name is Vanity ‘cause a girl’s best friend’s her pride
    And a working girl don’t have to tolerate the mailman’s tricks
    (Oh no, oh no)
    Everybody gets three years of tribulation unless they lie
    But with the female, 3 x 2 = 6

    Play your song one time, baby girl
    I don’t think they heard you now, baby
    That’s all I need to say because I think you understand
    Unless, of course, in another life you were a man

    Please believe me when I tell you a girl’s best friend’s her pride
    A working girl don’t have to tolerate the mailman’s tricks
    (No, she don’t)
    Everybody gets three years of tribulation unless they lie
    But with the female, well, 3 x 2 = 6

    Won’t somebody help me?
    Please believe me when I tell you a girl’s best friend’s her pride
    A working girl don’t have to tolerate the mailman’s tricks
    Sister, can you hear me?
    (Everybody gets three years of tribulation unless they lie)
    But with the female
    (3 x 2 = 6)
    3 x 2 = 6

    (Sister, can you hear me talkin’ to ya?)
    (Please believe me when I tell you a girl’s best friend’s her pride)
    When I tell ya a girl’s best friend’s her pride
    (A working girl don’t have to tolerate the mailman’s tricks)
    (Sister, can you hear me?)
    (Everybody gets three years of tribulation unless they lie)
    But with the female, 3 x 2 = 6
