Disgusting Lyric of the Day 19: Little Red Corvette by Prince

"I guess I must be dumb because you had a pocket full of horses – Trojans and some of them used. But it was Saturday night, I guess that makes it alright, you say ‘what have I got to lose?" - Prince, Little Red Corvette

What have you got to lose? What have you got to lose by sleeping with a woman who has used condoms in her pockets? Where exactly do you draw the line? Because I think it would be less disturbing if the lyric was “She’d taken a dump in her pants, but you know, it was Saturday, so I banged her anyway.” Shitting yourself is gross and all, but at least there could be an explanation behind it. Carrying used condoms around, on the other hand, is just hygienically unacceptable and psychotic. 

Okay, the song, which is a cover by tribute band Purple Reign, is embedded below, but it could become a dead link soon. Prince tends to be less forgiving of intellectual property thievery than he is of personal choices, like whether or not to stockpile other peoples' ejaculate on your person.
