All My Dreams (lyrical help needed)

I decided to try to transcribing this since it was stuck in my head, but cannot hear all the lyrics....
This is what I got


All my dreams
Bizarre
All my dreams
Bizarre

I'll see u tonight
In all my dreams
All my dreams
My spirit's in flight
In all my dreams
All my dreams
A submarine valiantly
Conquers a virgin sea
A child is born,
A child is born,
Will u marry me?

I'll teach u tonight (tonight, tonight)
In all my dreams
All my dreams
U'll be so surprised (surprised, surprised)
At things u'll see
All my dreams
Africa, captain crunch, in all my dreams, sex & Cheerios

Play my record double speed,
Feel the climax fit for a king
Just fun, nothing ethereal

Hear ye hear ye one & all
The double speed playback is making a call

(Slowed down voice)
Welcome, this is where I live
This is where I dream my dreams
Tonight we'll make love until the world stops turning
He was small but very strong
He moved like a cat
Quickly but gentle
So insane
He caressed her inner eyes and licked her abdomen
She shivered
?????
Over & over she nibbled his ear
?????
He held her tightly till it almost hurt
But his hips they moved so slow
She wanted to stop breathing
I can feel every curve of your womanhood
I can (see every dog in spring?)
A submarine slowly moves thru the virgin sea
So slowly she wanted to stop breathing
U can feel every curve
Lisa I'm gonna give u the brush, & you're gonna paint the side of the train

She squeezes tighter as the submarine goes deeper
In depth
?????
?????
She stops to cry?
?????
(Buncha slow lyrics I cannot decipher)

Marry me today & tonight we'll make love
Until the world stops turning
(Wendy & Lisa whispering something)

La la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la laaaaa
We'll travel tonight, in all my dreams
All my dreams



Any help would be appreciated.....

All my dreams
All my dreams
Goodness will guide us if love is inside us
The colors are brighter
The pop is much tighter
U no child a failure until the ??? ???
Sends him away from his dreams
Don't ever lose
Don't ever lose
Don't ever lose your dreams

U no child a failure until LOVE'S BEEN SEVERED AND
Sends (or SAILS?) him away from his dreams
Don't ever lose
Don't ever lose
Don't ever lose your dreams

Not much help, but these were the only few I was sure of. At least I think so

seriously? lol the first hit when you put 'prince all my dreams lyrics' in google gives you this:


[Intro]
All my dreams
All my dreams, all my dreams

[Verse 1]
I'll see you tonight in all my dreams
All my dreams
My spirit's in flight in all my dreams
All my dreams
A submarine valiantly conquers a virgin sea
A child is born, a child is born, will you marry me?

[Verse 2]
I'll teach you tonight (tonight, tonight) in all my dreams
All my dreams
You'll be so surprised (surprised, surprised) at things you'll see
All my dreams
Africa, Cap'n Crunch, Norma Jean, Sex and Cheerio's
Play my record double speed, feel the climax fit for a king

Just fun, nothing ethereal

Here ye, here ye, one and all
That the double speed playhouse is making a call

Welcome, this is where I live
This is where I dream my dreams
Tonight we'll make love until the world stops turning
You're small but very strong
You move like a cat: quickly but gentle
So insane
He caressed her in her eyes and licked her abdomen
She shivered with delight
Over and over she nibbled his ear
You'd think it was wrong to have so much fun
He held her tightly until it almost hurt
But his hips, they moved so slowly
She wanted to stop breathing
You can feel every curve of her womanhood
You can see every thought in his brain
A submarine slowly moves through the virgin sea
Oh so slowly
She wants to stop breathing
You... you can feel every curve


Lisa, I'm gonna give you the brush and you're gonna paint the side of the train

She squeezes tighter as the submarine goes deeper in depth
Into the unnavigated territory
A smile, ever so slight, appears on his face as she starts to cry
Until they come, together, slowly
They wish for somethin', as if they could see a parallel future in the sea
They do not speak
They only stare out the moment in time

Marry me today and tonight we'll make love until the world stops turning
(I'm dreaming of a world)
(Wherein there shines the sun)
(Wherein there lay the stars)
(Wherein there lie the stones)
Gentle, but quickly

We'll travel tonight in all my dreams
All my dreams

All my dreams, all my dreams
Goodness will guide us if love is inside us
The colors are brighter, the bond is much tighter
You know no child's a failure
Until the blue sailboat sails him away from his dreams
Don't ever lose, don't ever lose
Don't ever lose your dreams
Yeah!

and true love lives on lollipops and crisps

Even though the DTT isn't around, archive.org saved it. You just have to know how to get there.

It's one of my favorite outtakes. It is so joyful and playful. "Lisa, I'm gonna give U the brush and U're gonna paint the side of the train" is just ...UNF. It's as weird as "is the water warm enough".

Seeing as how "All My Dreams" was originally on a configuration of Parade, the message would have practically bookended the whole album, since the phrase is also in the opening track.

He also referenced Cap'n Crunch in "Joint 2 Joint".

The "Welcome, this is where I live" slowed down voice was later used on "Acknowledge Me".

He referenced "Africa" in "Mountains", too.

"we'll make love until the world stops turning" has similar roots in "1999" and "Crystal Ball".

1999: War is all around us, my mind says prepare 2 fight
So if I gotta die, I'm gonna listen 2 my body 2night

CB: As bombs explode around us and hate advances on the right
The only thing that matters, baby, is the love that we make 2night

in my humble opinion it's the very best unreleased prince track that there is right now.

it's a career hightlight, even among all the already released tracks.

he should have just seen chance to release 'old friends 4 sale'/'all my dreams' as a one
off single if it didn't fit the album in his mind. but he just had so much music going on
at that time that i can see how it got lost in the shuffle.

still, if ever there was a song that needed to be heard by more people, it's this one. it's
just brilliance, beginning middele and end.

i've heard it seven thousand times or so by now (especially since we got the upgraded
quality version some years ago) and it still literally floors me sometimes. it's just THAT
good.

i could talk about this song for hours, but the ultimate realisation always is that i have
no words to describe just how fantastic i think it is.

I couldn't agree more.

I still think so few people realize that OF4S segued into AMD originally. Even on the old boots, you can hear the reverberating sounds at the end of OF4S at the beginning of AMD. T, on alt.music.prince, used to talk about that and argue the point a lot.

It would still be a great 12" single or something. But if they do an expanded Parade, which I would love, I think those need to be on there in that order (and not the watered down already released version of OF4S), as well as his version of "Mia Bocca" (which was in UTCM), "Others Here With Us" and maybe the original take on the first four tracks of Parade when it was still "Little Girl Wendy's Parade". We have heard the Clare Fisher version of "New Position". It stands to be released on this as well. Just a lot of rich material during that time. He was refreshed after ATWIAD came out. You can hear it in the subsequent music, whether Sheila's album, The Family, or even (later on) Madhouse.

I think "All My Dreams" would have been a great Family song, since there are female vocals prominently in it as well.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

indeed, they totally segue into one another, and quite beautifully, too. two superb songs love

and yes, they need to be on parade deluxe. they are the ultimate tracks to put on there.

prince's own version of mia bocca omfg take my money, please! lol
