Song Lyric Sunday: Animals Strike Curious Poses

Jim Adams is the host for Song Lyric Sunday. This week’s theme: Amaze, Astonish, Curious, Shock, Surprise, Wonder suggested by Melanie aka Sparky. The song should reference the prompt in the title or lyrics. If it doesn’t, please explain why you chose it.


When Doves Cry by Prince, released in 1984, was written by Prince for the film Purple Rain, which starred Prince (duh!). Having never seen the film, I can’t comment on it, but this song is a gorgeous paean to love, relationships, tragedy, optimism and hope. As well as being sexy as hell!

So, without further ado, sit back and enjoy watching Prince in his bathtub and writhing around with a sultry young lady. Make sure you have a bucket of cold water on hand if it all gets a bit too steamy!

Dig if you will the picture
Of you and I engaged in a kiss
The sweat of your body covers me
Can you, my darling
Can you picture this?

Dream, if you can, a courtyard
An ocean of violets in bloom
Animals strike curious poses
They feel the heat
The heat between me and you

How can you just leave me standing
Alone in a world that’s so cold? (So cold)
Maybe I’m just too demanding
Maybe I’m just like my father, too bold
Maybe you’re just like my mother
She’s never satisfied (she’s never satisfied)
Why do we scream at each other?
This is what it sounds like
When doves cry

Touch if you will my stomach
Feel how it trembles inside
You’ve got the butterflies all tied up
Don’t make me chase you
Even doves have pride

How could you just leave me standing
Alone in a world so cold? (World so cold)
Maybe I’m just too demanding
Maybe I’m just like my father, too bold
Maybe you’re just like my mother
She’s never satisfied (she’s never satisfied)
Why do we scream at each other?
This is what it sounds like
When doves cry

How can you just leave me standing
Alone in a world that’s so cold? (A world that’s so cold)
Maybe I’m just too demanding (maybe, maybe I’m like my father)
Maybe I’m just like my father too bold (you know he’s too bold)
Maybe you’re just like my mother (maybe you’re just like my mother)
She’s never satisfied (she’s never, never satisfied)
Why do we scream at each other? (Why do we scream, why)
This is what it sounds like
When doves cry
When doves cry (doves cry, doves cry)
When doves cry (doves cry, doves cry)

Don’t cry (don’t cry)
