Cover Versions: Prince’s Jack U Off by Robyn

Well, seems I have done anything about Prince for a while and my old posts are still getting hits so I might post this today. If you haven’t yet seen all my Prince’s posts, I’ve got a few here, you know? Live Gig @ Perth in Feb, My Fav Song Coffee & Starfish, My Top Ten Albums, His Epic Guitar Solo to The Beatles, More covers with: The Cross by Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, Sinead O’Connor’s Nothing Compares 2 U by Dan Kelly, Martika’s Love Thy Will Be Done by Sarah Blasko.

An old cover of an even older song. Robyn did this in 2005 and got it on Aussie version of her self tiled album as a bonus track. One of Prince’s dirtiest songs he ever wrote but he did write alot of them. Originality it was from Prince’s Controversy album, his fourth studio album in 1981. This song was album’s closing track, Jack U Off is about? Guess what? I’ve included the lyrics so you can sing-along too! Robyn just bangs away on her piano here like she jacking it off, it’s wicked!

Jack U Off lyrics by Prince Rogers Nelson

If you’re looking for somewhere to go
Thought I’d take you to a movie show
Sittin’ in the back and I’ll jack you off
I can’t give you everything you want
But I can take you to a restaurant
If you’re not hungry
I’ll jack you off

If your man ain’t no good
Come on over to my neighborhood
We can jump in the sack and I’ll jack you off

If you’re tired of the masturbater
Little girl, we can go on a date
And if you like, I’ll jack you off

I’ll jack you off, jack you off
I’ll jack you off, jack you off
I’ll jack you off

I only do it for a worthy cause
Viriginity or menopause
you’ll have an instant heart attack if I jack you off

If you really really want to be a star
We gotta do it in your momma’s car
Naked in a Cadillac, I’ll jack you off

If we can’t find no place to go
Girl, I’ll take you to a movie show, we can sit in the back
And I’ll jack you off

I’ll jack you off, jack you off
I’ll jack you off, jack you off
I’ll jack you off, yeah
Yeah, yeah, I’ll jack you off

Alright say, we’ll put some funk on here
I’ll jack you off

If you ain’t chicken baby, come here
If you’re good I’ll even let you steer
As a matter of fact, you can jack me off
Yeah, that’s right

I’ll jack you off, yeah
I’ll jack you off
