The beauty of the song lies in its simplicity and the vivid pictures it paints. It’s not just about the lyrics or the melody; it’s about the feeling it evokes. It’s about those carefree days, a bit of innocence, and a touch of whimsy. That’s the magic of Prince – he could take the simplest concept and turn it into an unforgettable song.
