About U Got the Look

"U Got the Look" is a song by American musician Prince. It opens the second disc of Prince's 1987 double album Sign o' the Times, and became the album's runner-up chart single. Musically, the song is standard 12-bar rock song with emphasis on the contrast between heavy drum beats by a LinnDrum drum machine and Sheila E.'s live percussion, and a vastly distorted almost completely saturated guitar sound. Although not credited on the single release, the song also features Scottish recording artist Sheena Easton, who sings with Prince. Prince sings in his sped-up "Camille" voice, although the song was not intended for the Camille album. The lyrics recite the familiar "boy versus girl in the World Series of love" line. (Coincidentally, the World Series came to Prince's hometown of Minneapolis a few months after the song was released.) The music video for the song featuring Sheena Easton was filmed in Paris, France, and was directed by American music video director David Hogan. It was included in the Sign “☮” the Times film, and features the intro from the extended version of the song. The entire video is portrayed to be a dream sequence by Prince, dozing off in his dressing room. In the US, the single went to number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles tally, the week of October 17, 1987, only behind "Lost in Emotion" by Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam. The single stayed in the top 10 of the chart for six weeks.

Here we are folks
The dream we all dream of
Boy versus girl in the World Series of love
Tell me, have you got the look?

You walked in, I woke up
I've never seen a pretty girl
Look so tough, baby
You got that look

Color you peach and black
Color me takin' aback
Crucial, I think I want ya

You've got the look (You've got the hook)
You sho'nuf do be cookin' in my book
Your face is jammin'
Your body's heck-a-slammin'
If love is good
Let's get to rammin'

You got the look
You got the look

Look here
You got the look (you got the look)
You must'a took (you must'a took)
A whole hour just to make up your face, baby
Closin' time, ugly lights, everybody's inspected (Everybody's inspected)
But you are a natural beauty unaffected (Unaffected)
Did I say an hour?
My face is red, I stand corrected (I stand corrected)

You've got the look
You've got the hook
You sho'nuf do be cookin' in my book
Your face is jammin'
Your body's heck-a-slammin'
If love is good
Let's get to rammin'

You got the look
You got the look
(There's no girl to do)
Well here we are, ladies and gentlemen, the dream we all dream of
(Oh, please!) Boy versus girl in the World Series of love slammin'

You walked in (I walked in)
I woke up (you woke up)
I never seen such a pretty girl look so tough
(I never seen such a pretty girl look so tough)

Baby (Baby)
You got that look (you got that look)
Yes you do (Yes you do)
Color you peach and black
Color me takin' aback, baby
Crucial, I think I want ya

You've got the look
You've got the hook
You sho'nuf do be cookin' in my book
Your face is jammin'
Your body's heck-a-slammin'
If your love is good
Let's get to rammin' (Now)

You got the look
You got the look

Here we are folks
The dream we all dream of

You got the look
You got the look
You got the look
You got the look
You got the look
