Attention everybody! I'm gonna show you a brand new dance
It's called "The walk, the walk", just let your body talk 'til you're deep in a trance
You don't need no partner, you can walk all alone
Whenever you feel the groove just let your body move, walkin' to a beat of your own

(chorus)
Everybody walk your body, everybody walk
Everybody walk your body, everybody walk

Attention everybody! I said it ain't hard to do
Just walk, walk, let your body talk, walkin' so cool
Attention everybody! I said I just shined my shoes
So you can let your body talk, just watch where you walk or your life you're gonna lose
In other words, I'll walk you 'til you're dead

(repeat chorus)
The days of dancing in one place are gone
And honey, you know you can't dance with them tight jeans on
If you try to cop a dip, you trip, slip, and fall
Walking's for the cool baby, put on a camisole

(repeat chorus)
Who? Me? I wear baggies, zip, snap, and drop
Easy access baby. Yes, before you get a chance to holler "Stop!"
Besides, Rollo likes his freedom
Ain't nothin' like a fresh pair of baggies
Now I know that's right


(repeat chorus)
Hup 2, 3, 4, what the hell are we fightin' for? Walk


Damn, I'm 'bout to walk a hole in my Stacy Adams
What time is it?
Little cute guitar player, make your mama proud
I want all of Detroit City to stand up, clap your hands!
Alright you Polaroids, stay in time with the drummer
Jellybean, don't be so mean. Mr. Jelly, turn it around
Bass man walk downtown. Go on and walk, Terry
I don't think they heard ya
What time is it? Rock City
Well OK, if you put it that way
Ain't nobody bad. Cheerio

We don't like policemen
We don't like new wave
We don't like television

10.7.1981 @ Sam's(First Avenue) in Minneapolis

the Time's DEBUT Concert

Although they hadn't yet really played together as a group in the studio, in August 1981 THE TIME performed their first live appearance at a showcase for a small group of executives from Warner Bros. Records at the S.I.R. Studio in Los Angeles, with Prince overseeing the proceedings by the soundboard. During rehearsals for the upcoming "Controversy"-Tour with Prince, THE TIME incorporated Jerome Benton into their acts to be Morris Day's on-stage valet. The band warmed-up in autumn 1981 by playing a small number of low-key gigs around the Minneapolis aera.

THE TIME made their public live debut on 7th October 1981 at Sam's, a music club in Downtown, Minneapolis, with Prince digging the show back by the soundboard again. A few weeks later they embarked as the main supporting act on Prince's 1981/1982 "Controversy"-Tour.

Possessed: the Rise & Fall of Prince

Chapter 4: PAWNS

page 44

When Prince offered to build a band around Morris Day in exchange for the song "Partyup" in the summer of 1980, it was the latest shift in a long and complex relationship. For years, Day had shadowed Prince along the road to stardom. When they were teenagers, Day joined Prince's first band, Champagne, on drums, replacing Charles Smith. They developed a strong friendship, and Day's mother, LaVonne Daugherty, helped manage the group. Prince, Day and bassist Andre Cymone(then using his last name Anderson) functioned as a team, sharing leadership responsibilities as they competed with other Minneapolis groups.

...

In the summer of 1980, during the recording of Dirty Mind, Day found his way back, albeit in a less glamorous capacity; he became a "runner" for Prince's band, picking up sandwiches and drinks during rehearsals. But Prince continued to respect Day's musicianship, as his interest in "Partyup" showed. When the deal for the song was struck, events finally seemed to have shifter back in Day's favor.

I guess you've heard of my reputation, I've had my share of foolin' around
But everybody needs stimulation, and mine just happens to be all over town
It's an easy-money occupation, a first-class psychiatry
But just once, I'd wanna make love without taking off my clothes
Just once, I wanna make love with somebody who really and truly knows:

[Chorus:]
Contrary to rumor, gigolos get lonely too
All my lovers need stimulation, but honey babe, I think that I need you

[Verse 2:]
Maybe you're the kind of person, that could turn my world around
Won't you gimme little inspiration? Maybe that's what I need to make me settle down
It's an easy-money occupation, but honey one thing understand
I've got more money than you could imagine in your wildest dreams
But honey, money don't make no happy man

[Chorus:]
Contrary to rumor, gigolos get lonely too
All my lovers need stimulation, but honey babe, I think that I need you

[Bridge:]
Just once, I wanna love without takin' off my clothes
Just once, I wanna love with somebody who knows
That I got more money than you could ever see
But honey, money won't get me up off my knees


Gigolos get lonely too
All my lovers need stimulation
But honey babe, I think that I need you

[Chorus:]
Contrary to rumor, gigolos get lonely too
All my lovers need stimulation, but honey babe, I think that I need you

What cha gonna do, baby?
Oh, what cha, what cha gonna do?

Ah, do you think we could have dinner sometimes, baby?
Well, how about to night?
Baby?

Great! Love the ones of Prince with Morris.

it's interesting that for most of the time he was alive, I think we only saw 1 picture of Prince and Morris Day together.

It is. The one I remember wasn't in color either. My favorite is the one of them having a face off.

I agree, it was a 'full band' connection.
.
I think Sheila E's 1984-1985/86 band had that too, because they all knew each other from going up or living in the Bay area and some family

.

Mazarati also

.

But the Time was the protege mold. If he would have by the 2nd album, had them more on the recording part, there would have been less stress.

.

1/3 of the songs all Prince(recording/writing/performing) with Morris on drums

1/3 of the songs written by Prince but duplicated by the Time

1/3 of the songs all the Time band

The Man Who Shot All of Minneapolis’ Sounds

After 35 years as the Twin Cities’ go-to music photographer, Daniel Corrigan looks back with the collection Heyday, previewed here alongside an interview with First Avenue’s in-house shooter.

You didn’t shoot every single Prince show, but did you shoot as many as you could?

Yes, as many as I could. I think I shot Prince five shows, maybe six. I was lucky I got to see him. He liked to be in control. Part of his vision of what control was, was having control of your [own] images; I completely understand that. I was shooting him at the Orpheum [Theater], not First Avenue. I had to shoot from the aisles; we couldn’t shoot from the front. I was crouched down on the mid-side aisles, and there were probably four or five photographers there. I saw somebody point and I saw Chick, the bodyguard, come grinding up the aisle, and I thought, “Well, I did something wrong.” I think I’m about to get thrown out, and he walks past me and grabs the photographer right behind me who was doing, as far as I can tell, nothing different than I was doing, grabs him by the collar, and drags him out. I thought, “Well, I’m next.” And he never came back.

What was the Time like to shoot?

They were colorful and action-packed; they didn't stand in the same place. So they were a blast to shoot. You can shoot [a band like] Son Volt—whom I love—and they just stand there, right? There's nothing. Or you can do Morris Day, where he's back and forth across the stage. The keyboards are in place, but everyone else is mad dancing. I remember very colorful sets. With Son Volt, they just set their stuff up on the stage and stand there and play, and that's their thing, and I love them for it. It's some of my favorite music. But it's a different experience when it's the Time.
Photography is such now that I'm starting to believe it isn't really a photograph until it's a print. Because I ran into these Polaroids that Dave Pirner and I made in the Netherlands, on tour with Soul Asylum. We found a box of Polaroids from Husker Du’s Warehouse shoot. I remember the pictures; they weren't a surprise. But physically seeing the objects was cool.
