Still more lazy thoughts from this one…

Friday Song – Glamorous Life by Sheila E

From the era of big thoughts, big dreams…to say nothing of the big hair, padded shoulders…a song written by Prince at his height (fame, not stature) in 1984 and recorded by the incomparable singer/percussionist Sheila E.

She wears a long fur coat of mink
Even in the summer time
Everybody knows from the coy little wink
The girl's got a lot on her mind

She's got big thoughts, big dreams
And a big brown Mercedes sedan
What I think this girl, she really wants
Is to be in love with a man

She wants to lead a glamorous life
She don't need a man's touch
She wants to lead a glamorous life
Without love, it ain't much

She saw him standing in the section marked
If you have to ask, you can't afford a lingerie
She threw him bread and said make me scream
In the dark what could he say

Boys with small talk and small minds
Really don't impress me in bed
She said, I need a man's man, baby, diamonds and furs
Love would only conquer my head

She wants to lead a glamorous life
She don't need a man's touch
She wants to lead a glamorous life
Without love, it ain't much

They made haste in the brown sedan
They drove to 55 Secret Street
They made love and by the seventh wave
She knew she had a problem

She thought real love is real scary
Money only pays the rent
Love is forever that's all your life
Love is heaven sent, it's glamorous

Lead a glamorous life
She don't need a man's touch
She wants to lead a glamorous life
Without love, it ain't much

She wants to lead a glamorous life
She don't need a man's touch
She wants to lead a glamorous life
Without love, it ain't much, it ain't much

Lead a glamorous life
She don't need a man's touch
She wants to lead a glamorous life
Without love, it ain't much, it ain't much

She wants to lead a glamorous life
She don't need a man's touch
She wants to lead a glamorous life
Without love, it ain't much, it ain't much

Lead a glamorous life
She don't need a man's touch
She wants to lead a glamorous life
Without love, it ain't much, it ain't much

    Great song! After I saw the video on MTV, I was inspired to immediately go out and buy Sheila E’s album. I noticed where she played at a jazz club here in L.A. not too long ago. Guess she’s still at it.
