While I was singing it to my children and screaming "DAHLIN IF YOU WANT ME TO!" and they were thinking "So glad we don't homeschool with this woman!" I began to daydream about singing it in choir on Easter Sunday. Naturally we would need a really spunky choir to pull it off and I'm envisioning changing the I's to HE'S and then just a couple of the other words like:
Sopranos: (very formally of course) HE is your lover. He is your friend. He is something that you'll never comprehend.
Tenors: (just as formally) He'll never beat you. He'll never lie-high. And if you're evil He'll forgive you by and by 'cause....
Everyone: (soul it up now with some dancing) YOU! He will die for you.
Alto(me): (with feeling) DAHLIN' IF YOU WANT HIM TO!
Everyone: (still dancing victoriously) YOU! He DID die for you.
And so on. Are you feelin' it? Are you feelin' what the Shan is showering to? AMEN!
And on that set of notes... Since Prince doesn't approve of youtube, I give you the only version of his song I could find. It's not the highest quality video but I know if such technology existed back in the 80's, no doubt that would have been Arl and I workin' out our moves to a Tears for Fears song (Am I right or am I right Arly :D).
