About How Come U Don't Call Me Anymore?

"How Come U Don't Call Me Anymore?" is a song by Prince. It is a ballad of romantic longing with some gospel elements. On his original recording of the song, which was released as the non-album B-side to his 1982 single "1999", Prince performs most of the song in his falsetto range, with his own bluesy piano playing providing the only instrumental accompaniment. The song's first album appearance was on his 1993 compilation The Hits/The B-Sides. It was later included on the soundtrack to the 1996 film Girl 6. Prince also performs the song on his 2002 live album One Nite Alone... Live!. Artists who have covered the song include Stephanie Mills (1983), Joshua Redman (1998), and Alicia Keys (2001). Bilal recorded the song which appears on his 2001 single "Fast Lane". Roger Cicero recorded the song with Soulounge for the 2004 album Home; a live version by Cicero is included on his 2008 single "Alle Möbel verrückt". American Idol season 11 finalist Jessica Sanchez performed the song on the American Idols LIVE! Tour 2012.

Oh, ho
Hoo
Mmm
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

I keep your picture beside my bed
And I still remember the things you said, oh, yeah
I always thought our love so right, I guess I was wrong, ooh
I always thought you'd be by my side, baby, now you're gone

What I wanna know, baby
What we had was good
How come you don't call me anymore, ooh?
(How come you don't call me anymore?)

Still light the fire on a rainy night, ooh
Still like it better when you're holdin' me tight
Everybody said, everybody said that we should never part, oh, no
But tell me, babe, why'd you wanna go and break my heart? Yeah

What I wanna know, baby
What we had was good
How come you don't call me anymore? Call me, ooh, hoo
(How come you don't call me anymore?)

Sometimes I feel like I'm gonna die
And you don't come by my door
Boy, you've got to try
I'm down on my knees beggin' you please
Hee, hee, hee, hoo ooh

Baby
Ooh, hoo, ooh, ooh, yeah

All I wanna know, baby
What we had was good
How come you don't call me anymore?
Won't you call me, baby?
Why can't you call me sometime, baby?
(How come you don't call me anymore?)

Oh, it's just one lousy dime, yeah
Ooh, ooh, call me, call me sometime
(How come you don't call me anymore?)
Pass up the dime one more time
(How come you don't call me anymore?)
Call me, call me
