18 Prima Donna

(Gillan) from the Ian Gillan album Dreamcatcher

It's a song about an imaginary girl. The chorus just came out of the blue one day when I was doodling on my banjo.

Prima Donna

(Gillan)

I tried to believe you
But you're so unbelievable
You did what you had to do
It wasn't good
But you knew that anyway
Didn't you
Hear me crying
Give it one more shot

You came as a trouper
You left as Napoleon
Riding bareback
On a huge white stallion
If you win you can nail
My colours to the mast
But you don't you worry
If you lose I won't ask

Oh look at you now
See how she gets
I can't decide what it is
That I like about you
I'm under too much stress

You're a Prima Donna
One in a million
A go for it girl
You're a Prima Donna
Oh, a go for it girl

I was the only one
Now you want another one
And one and one
And one and one is
Five good reasons
Why I should be leaving
It's never too late
To give it one more shot

Oh look at those eyes
Two tropical storms
Until I decide what it is
That I like about you
I'm coming back for more

You're a prima donna
One in a million
A go for it girl
You're a Prima Donna
Oh, a go for it girl
