      The Prince and the Showgirl/Katrina’s Paper Dolls

      Prince’s Katrina’s Paper Dolls Song
      (Most certainly about Denise Katrina Matthews / Vanity)

      I’m sure there are others out there like me that’s wondering what the heck are Katrina Paper Dolls? The title comes off as comical, but the beat is jamming with a good tune. If you haven’t heard it yet, you should. It is available on Amazon under the title: “Katrina’s Paper Dolls”. What interest me about these “paper dolls” is the fact that Denise brought up these same “paper dolls” lyrics after her and Prince broke up. Check out the lyrics below. Btw, it’s obvious who Vanity’s Samuelle song is about. :) How close can you get with “The Prince and the Showgirl”

       

      Lyrics obtained from Prince’s Katrina’s Paper Dolls:

      “Katrina makes paper dolls
      One doll for every day
      One doll for every day her old man’s been gone
      Katrina makes paper dolls
      For every time he told her
      For every time he told her that their love was too strong”

       

      Lyrics obtained from Denise’s song “Samuelle”:

      “I do recall Carnivals were filled up with Crazy guys and paper dolls Thought it would last forever”

       

      Samuelle song:
      “All those nights I stayed alone
      Stared at the phone, well
      I’m kinda emotional”

       

      Samuelle song:

      “The Prince and The Showgirl”

       

      Samuelle Song:
      “I really love you
      You can have me, if you want to”

       

      Katrina’s Paper Dolls Song:
      “love will make you lonely in the eyes of this dame”

       

      Katrina’s Paper Dolls Song:
      “Katrina’s paper dolls
      Love will make you horny”

       

       

       

      For the full lyrics to both songs, read further below.

       

      Samuelle (recorded in 1984)

       

      Samuelle
      This is your lover calling
      Samuelle

       

      Samuelle
      This is your lover calling
      Samuelle, do you belong to Marilyn?

      How did I know?
      She could never love your heart like me
      I’m quite sure
      We belong together

      Oh Samuelle
      You cannot tell a lie
      It happens across the moon and the sky

      Valerie
      This is your conscious calling you
      Valerie
      I don’t wanna hear you

      I do recall
      Carnivals were filled up with
      Crazy guys and paper dolls
      Thought it would last forever

      Oh Samuelle
      I’m running down the isle
      Wedding lace
      Was written all over

      I really want you
      I really do
      I really
      Love you

      Naughty little things
      We may never know
      The Prince and The Showgirl
      When does it never? (Ever, ever)

      Oh Samuelle
      I cannot tell
      If I sing to you, will you ring my doorbell?

      (Ring my doorbell, doorbell)
      I really want you
      (Ring my doorbell, doorbell)
      I really do
      (Ring my bell, my bell)
      I really
      Love you

      Time will tell
      All those nights I stayed alone
      Stared at the phone, well
      I’m kinda emotional

      Hey Samuelle
      I cannot let you go
      I have thrown all the snowballs I can throw
      Oh, oh

      I really love you
      You can have me, if you want to

      Katrina’s Paper Dolls (recorded in 1983)

       

      [Verse 1]
      Katrina makes paper dolls
      One doll for every day
      One doll for every day her old man’s been gone
      Katrina makes paper dolls
      For every time he told her
      For every time he told her that their love was too strong

      [Chorus]
      There’s no way to tell who’s real and who’s not
      Baby, it’s so much harder when your body’s hot
      She says that love is just a game or so it seems in many circles
      Maybe that’s what makes her world go round

      [Verse 2]
      Katrina makes paper dolls
      They all look the same
      They play the same games
      Katrina makes paper dolls
      It’s better than being lonely
      And love will make you lonely in the eyes of this dame, ooh, oh

      [Chorus]
      There’s no way to tell who’s real and who’s not
      Baby, it’s so much harder when your body’s hot
      She says love is just a game or so it seems in many circles
      Maybe that’s what makes her world go round

      [Verse 3]
      Katrina makes paper dolls
      It’s better than being lonely
      Love will make you lonely
      In the eyes of this dame
      They’re all just paper dolls

      (La, la, la, la)
      Da, da
      (La, la, la, la)
      Da, da
      (La, la, la, la)
      Ooh
      Katrina’s paper dolls
      Love will make you horny
      (La, la, la, la)
      Ooh
      La, la, la, la
      Katrina’s paper dolls
      Ooh
      Katrina’s paper dolls
      Katrina’s paper dolls
      Katrina’s paper dolls

      So, I’m wondering who or what are the paper dolls and who are the crazy guys at the carnival… hmm. Lol. Are there any interpreters in the house. Please, feel free to enlighten me. If these lyrics posted are not accurate, someone please inform me.

        OMG I nearly thought this was about Marilyn Monroe’s film with Lawrence Olivier…since Prince was obsessed with her…but I love that this song for it alludes to her film and that it contains her second name…I think it’s beautiful…”Katrina Matthews”<3
