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 . s live percussion, and a vastly distorted almost completely saturated guitar sound.
Look here You got the look (you got the look) You musta took (you musta took) A whole hour just 2 make up your face, baby Closin time, ugly lights, everybodys inspected (everybodys inspected) But you are a natural beauty unaffected (unaffected) Did I say an hour?

Lyrics to 'U Got The Look' by Prince. Looka here U got the look (U got the look) U musta took (U musta took) A whole hour just 2 make up ur face, baby. Closin' time, ugly lights, everybody's inspected (everybody's inspected) But u r a natural beauty unaffected (unaffected) Did I say an hour? My face is red, I stand corrected (I stand corrected).

He got it. Prince danced on the edge of the world on 1999, made his vulnerability into a sex brag on Little Red Corvette, paid his way with his tears on Lady Cab Driver, made rockabilly modern with Delirious and perfected a drum-machine sound that made this one of the most influential records of its time. The spare title track was a tour of the headlines (AIDS, drugs, gangs) that went to Number Three; U Got the Look was hecka-slammin’ pop mastery. But small gems like the one-man gospel call-and-response of Forever in My Life made his genius seem inexhaustible. One of the best albums of the Eighties. The Black Album (1988) Prince pulled this album in 1987 because he thought it was evil, but he also knew these funk vamps were (as one title put it) exy. He even performed some of them live.
Girl - you got the look (you got the look!) You're rolling up in the party with one titty out Oh girl, you got the whole damn shook up The way your booby be breathing It makes me wanna scream and shout, yeah. Damn, girl - you rockin' that thing With no support, just watching it swing May be a mistake, but now she just owning it; "Ay carumba!" titty girl, you Matt Groening it.
