The Song Prince Recorded Just to Make a Woman Laugh

The week of May 29, 2018 a twitter trend urging people to post their unpopular opinions sparked a Prince edition. Two of the unpopular opinion posts mention the song Poom Poom as being a ‘banger’ although some fans disagree and have called it his most annoying song. (see comments below)
 

Song Poom Poom
Artist: Prince
Album: Crystal Ball
Released: 1998

Poom Poom is the third track on the third disc of Prince’s 20th album Crystal Ball which was released in 1998.  In 1998, Prince created virtual liner notes for the Crystal Ball collection. He says the song Poom Poom was only made for fun:

“Never intended 4 any album, just a funny track 2 make a female laugh –
What yo name is?
All sounds by Prince (symbol)” ~Prince 

The slang Poom Poom or Pum Pum has many different connotations. In Jamaica, it can mean bum/butt or sex in general.  The slang means different things to different people.
Most interpret the slang or use it to refer to female genitalia. Whatever the case Prince liked the term so much he created an entire song about it just to make a woman laugh.

The lyrics are straight comedy and poke fun of the things people say to get what they want:

4:58 and I’m hard straight
Licorice and goldenseal is all I ate
If you were here I wouldn’t masturbate
Wishing I was kin to your PoomPoom”

“The track was premiered in The New Power Generation Stores in London and Minneapolis on 7 June 1995 to celebrate Prince’s 37th birthday. The song was copyrighted at the Library of Congress on 25 August 1995.”

Poom Poom Lyrics:

What am I going to do?!
PoomPoom PoomPoom PoomPoom PoomPoom PoomPoom
PoomPoom Poom

4:57 with you on the mind
I’m craving you so much shit, I crave you all the time
Sweet chemistry we got
My blood’s running so hot
Every time I think about the PoomPoom

PoomPoom
I can’t stop thinking about you (PoomPoom)
Every day and night, girl (PoomPoom)
PoomPoom
I can’t stop thinking about you (PoomPoom)
(PoomPoom)

4:58 and I’m hard straight
Licorice and goldenseal is all I ate
If you were here I wouldn’t masturbate
Wishing I was kin to your PoomPoom

Hey little shorty, what your name is?
Catching all this wreck in the music biz
How’d you get that body my crew be macking?
How’d you get dem eyes? Dem all you lashes?
Honey, you number to on my chart
Before you get to one, you got to audition:
You got yo audition for the part (Boom)
Now what’s your doctor’s name? (PoomPoom)

[Verse 4]
4:59, huh, could you be so kind
To tick a little faster so I could, so I could, so I could find (Tick-tock
[x4])
A better way to spend this precious, this precious time
Than occupying my mind with the PoomPoom
Thinking about your PoomPoom
Oh no, can’t stop thinking about you (PoomPoom)
(Hold it right there, shorty)
Every day and night, girl (PoomPoom)
(Don’t you move now – what your name is?)
What am I going to do? (PoomPoom)
(What your ame is?)
What am I going to do? (you looking good to me)
Yeah! (PoomPoom)
(Catching all this wreck)
Yeah, what am I going to do? (PoomPoom)
(you little ass)
I can’t stop, I can’t stop, I can’t stop thinking about your
PoomPoom (PoomPoom)
(Is that all your hair, girl? you know you look good)
Ooh, ooh! (PoomPoom)
(Gimme your name, what your name is?) (PoomPoom)
(Well then fuck you then)
PoomPoom PoomPoom PoomPoom PoomPoom PoomPoom
PoomPoom Poom [x4]
