Prince Handwritten Lyrics
In February 2016, we had the honor to take Prince handwritten lyrics on consignment from his early manager, Owen Husney. Owen relayed that the Prince lyrics was given to him by Prince as a birthday present. Prince later surprised Owen by suing him, claiming that the lyrics were his property. When we decided to pull the auction, Owen kept the Prince handwritten lyrics and Prince did not bother him again. One month after the auction, Prince died. Here are the Prince handwritten lyrics:
Handwritten Prince Lyrics for “In Love”
Complete lyrics to Prince’s song “In Love”, handwritten and signed by Prince circa 1977. Song appears as the first full track on his historic Warner Bros. debut album, “For You”. The legendary artist signs his name at top right as “prince” and adds additional heart flourishes to the song title (a favorite touch of the young musician). Written in immaculately neat blue pen, these lyrics have never been publicly seen before. Lyrics are offered as a collector’s piece only and do not come with rights for reproduction, manufacturing or distribution. Single page on yellow ruled sheet which measures 8.5″ x 11″. Quarter inch tear and very minor folding to bottom edge, otherwise near fine condition. With an LOA from Owen Husney. Five percent of net proceeds on this item will go to the charity Our House LA’s Camp Erin for Grieving Children.
