My Computer Lyrics

by Prince

"Welcome, you've got mail"
(Computer)
It was Sunday night, instead of doing what I usually do, I

I scan my computer looking for a site
Somebody to talk to, funny and bright
I scan my computer looking for a site
Make believe it's a better world, a better life

Nothing on TV I ain't seen before
Another murder on the news, I can't take no more
Evil incorporated, blowing up bombs and thangs
I have a child, huh, I have a lot to explain
I could write a letter but who would I send it to?
It was Sunday night, instead of doing what I usually do, I

I scan my computer looking for a site
Somebody to talk to, funny and bright
I scan my computer looking for a site
Make believe it's a better world, a better life

I called an old friend of mine just the other day
No congratulations, no respect paid
All she did was wonder if the rumors were true
I said, "No, I ain't dead yet but, uh, what about you?"
I can count my friends with a peace sign, one, two
It was Sunday night, instead of doing what I usually do, I

I scan my computer looking for a site
Somebody to talk to, funny and bright
(Oh)
I scan my computer looking for a site
Make believe it's a better world, a better life
(A better life)

I got no mail, my computer

I told them I don't wanna see a doctor unless he's lonely too
Every Sunday night, instead of doing what I usually do, I

I scan my computer looking for a site
Somebody to talk to, funny and bright
I scan my computer looking for a site
Make believe it's a better world
(Make believe it's a better world)

A better life
A better life
A better life

Goodbye
