The Lyrics

So I'd like to know where Prince got the notion
Made a symbol his name, caused a commotion

Hide the bone (oh hide the bone baby)
Hide the bone (that was a song by Prince)
Hide the bone (from "Crystal Ball" album)
Hide the bone

Playin' hard to get is hard to play
Now you got me falling everyday
How can I resist, you've got me saying
Won't you please give it up with a bang

You know you're gonna ruin my reputation
But I just can't control this here situation

Well back in '93 this song was recorded
But stayed unreleased five years, it was hoarded

Hide the bone (track six on disc one, now)
Hide the bone (five minutes, four seconds)
Hide the bone (his prose is so "purple")
Hide the bone

When you whisper press your body close to mine
You make me wanna surrender every time
You break me down, I'll never be the same
This time the hunter's captured by the game

Well Prince puts lots of innuendo in his music
The bone he wants to hide; might that be an oosik?

So I'd like to know where Prince got the notion
Made a symbol his name, caused a commotion

Hide the bone (oh hide the bone baby)
Hide the bone (that was a song by Prince)
Hide the bone (from "Crystal Ball" album)
Hide the bone

the thrilling conclusion! 5's
minor note here this parody is dated "90s" rather than "70s" just something I noticed

Whoops, yeah, the 1990s was the decade Prince's "Hide the Bone" came out (1998), which is probably why I mistakenly selected 90s, but you're right, THIS parody should have been dated 1970s like the Hues Corporation song. Oh well...
