About Sheila E.:

 

 

The multi-talented artist is perhaps still best known for her association with Prince and the 1984 smash “The Glamorous Life.”

Yet, she’s also released several albums, penned the autobiography “The Beat of My Own Drum” and performed numerous high-profile concerts. She’s Bay Area born and Bay Area proud.

“I used to sit on the corner outside of the local community center with Twinkies and 7-Up listening to Tower of Power, Sly and Larry Graham rehearse,” she’s quoted as saying. “The sounds of the Bay Area molded me.”

Her popular song, The Glamorous Life!

 

Lyrics

She wears a long fur coat of mink
Even in the summer time
Everybody knows from the coy little wink
The girl’s got a lot on her mind

She’s got big thoughts, big dreams
And a big brown Mercedes sedan
What I think this girl
She really wants, to be in love with a man

She wants to lead the glamorous life
She don’t need a man’s touch
She wants to lead the glamorous life
Without love it ain’t much

She saw him standing in the section marked
If you have to ask you can’t afford it lingerie
She threw him bread and said make me scream
In the dark what could he say

Boys with small talk and small minds
Really don’t impress me in bed
She said I need a man’s man baby
Diamonds and furs
Love would only conquer my head
She wants to lead the glamorous life
She don’t need a man’s touch

She wants to lead the glamorous life
Without love it ain’t much
They made haste in the brown sedan
They drove to fifty five Secret street
They made love and by the seventh wave
She knew she had a problem
She thought real love is real scary
Money only pays the rent
Love is forever that’s all your life
Love is heaven sent it’s glamorous, lead

The glamorous life
She don’t need a man’s touch
She wants to lead the glamorous life
Without love it ain’t much, it ain’t much
She wants to lead the glamorous life
She don’t need a man’s touch
She wants to lead the glamorous life
Without love it ain’t much, it ain’t much
Lead, the glamorous life
She don’t need a man’s touch
She wants to lead the glamorous life
Without love, it ain’t much, it ain’t much
