    [Mondegreen](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mondegreen) The phrase that you are mishearing in this song is in Verse 2. The fool named Trick talked 'bout how he was going to make Pussy a star, but this has nothing to do with disposable razors; Schicks or Bics. You are not the first to mishear this phrase. I find this song intriguing because of it's (what I call) backward innuendo and looked at the words on various lyric sights and found "Schick than a Bic" and sometimes "shit than a Bic". With a name like Trick, he is talking a whole lot of shit trying to convince this girl to sing a lick on his hit. So the correct phrase should be "talking more shit than a bit" It's funny how we will hear things like this and accept them thinking to ourselves that there must be some inside joke or some slang that we are not understanding because Prince is such a genius when, in fact. we just may not understand the context we heard those words in. Thanks for your enthusiasm and commentary!
