Perhaps Prince's last written song.

I don't know if anyone else noticed this on the news outlets' reports this morning as they were allowed a look inside PP, but Prince had apparently left some lyrics on a music stand that Have been apparently untouched or unmoved.

There are 2 songs there; one is the typewritten lyrics to "Look at me Look at U" from his last album. The other was handwritten and looks to be a new song called "Stay Cool". Can anyone make out the lyrics to it? Online are video and photos of it. Video from Today Show is hard to see because of the NBC captions they have taking up most of their screen every telecast. Their still photos cut off some of the right-hand side of the lyrics. I'll post below what I can make out so far in a few minutes.

Alright, alright?!
Stay cool, Baby

U're the only one that matters in my world
Alright?....Alright?
Alright
Stay Cool Stay Cool Baby Baby
" "

Stay Cool, Ur so beautifool
U must b cuz (eye sign) let u break all of my rules
(Eye sign) let u take ur top off in my swimming pool
Alright? Alright

a million miles Sun Shine's so bright
Alright
Stay Cool....Stay Baby Baby

This really did upset me a bit. The finality of it is weighing heavily on me.

And it's a perfect title to fans freaking out over petty shit, too. "Let's start a petition to keep the purple lights on all the time, because Paisley was his home!" Don't sit down Felicia, just go.

Fans need to let the dust settle, let folks do their job, and stay cool.


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

PS The sharpie writing on the back seems to say "Stay cool, don't w b no square", "w b" possibly being shorthand for "worry 'bout".

Don't worry about what's happening with the candy; you're the only one that matters.

Sounds like someone was worried and talked to him about the pills, and he was saying don't worry about it.

He let her break all of his rules, maybe that meant he was having sex?

Let's not fight. Maybe they were fighting about him taking the pills?

I noticed that in the photo. Talk about bittersweet. If it is his final song, it seems perfect that it is there for fams to see. I wonder if he had begun recording it yet. It is no surprise that Prince was creative until the very end. That "river of songs" never stopped flowing.

I'm stating my opinion, if you do not like it then move along.

I think candy represents a girl he's supposedly spending time with - but THIS girl he's writing for is really the one. smilesmile

Maybe we shouldn't see or hear every single thing Prince worked on. those lyrics are pretty rudimentary.

I'm with you - I saw that and thought that I'm not ready to visit PP yet...

I agree with both of you, watching those clips made me do a u turn on my thinking on the opening. I now think it's way too soon.

I mean...respectfully, the candy-pills reference is really deplorable.

Sadly, rudimentary had sort of become the norm.

Obviously, the last song from a great artist you would want something profound and deeply personal .but his life was cut short too soon. It's not a final farewell song..but how could it be when he didn't know...

So sad...he thought it was another song not realising today we would be reading those lyrics looking for some meaning, some comfort.
Baby, you're a star.

if i had to guess what it would sound like judging by the playful lyrics...it would be a cross between Stare/Feel good, feel better / Love like Jazz. Also I can just imagine his dreamy and seductive voice cloud9
