Song of the Day – Cyndi Lauper: "When You Were Mine"

“When You Were Mine” is a song written and performed by Prince and covered by Cyndi Lauper on her debut album, “She’s So Unusual.” Though I knew the song from its original version, it wasn’t until I heard Cyndi’s version that I truly began to love it. It was a great track on an album full of great tracks and her version is just sooo awesome, melancholy, but fun, as only Cyndi can! So enjoy this performance from the American Music Awards way back in the early 80’s. I know I did!

When u were mine
I gave u all of my money
Time after time
U done me wrong
Cause, just like a train
U let all my friends come over and eat
And u were so strange
U didn’t have the decency to change the sheets
Oh girl, when u were mine
I use to let u wear all my clothes
U were so fine
Maybe that’s the reason that it hurt me so
I know, that you’re goin with another guy
But I don’t care, cause I love u baby that’s no lie
Love u more mine than I did when u were mine
When u were mine
U were kindasorta my best friend
So I was blind
I let u fool around
I never cared
I never was the kind to make a fuss
When he was there
Sleepin in between the two of us
I know, that you`re goin with another guy
But I don’t care, cause I love u baby that’s no lie
Love u more than I did when u were mine
When u were mine
U were all I ever wanted to do
Now I spend my time
Following him whenever he’s with u
I know that you’re goin with another guy
But I don’t care, cause I love u baby that’s no lie
Love u more than I did when u were mine
