Cinnamon Girl Lyrics


As war drums beat in Babylon
Cinnamon Girl starts to pray
I've never heard a prayer like this 1
Never before that day

Tearful words of love for people she had never met before
Asking God to grant them mercy in this face of a holy war

Cinnamon Girl

Cinnamon Girl of mixed heritage
Never knew the meaning of color lines
Nine one one turned that all around
When she got accused of this crime

So began the mass illusion, war on terror alibi
What's the use when the god of confusion keeps on telling the same lie?

Cinnamon Girl

Don't cry, don't shed no tears
1 night won't make us feel
Cause we know how this movie's ending

Cinnamon Girl

As war drums beat in Babylon
And scorch the blood red sky
Militants bomb the foreign gun
Both sides truly die

Cinnamon girl opens the book she knows will settle all the scores
Then she prays after the war that there will not be anymore

Cinnamon Girl

Cinnamon Girl
  • This song has heavy religious undertones. Since Prince was a member of the Jehovah's Witness religion, his writing was influenced by his belief system.

    "The god of confusion" refers to the JWs belief in Satan as the devil. The lyric, "Don't cry, don't shed no tears... cause we know how this movie's ending" refers to an Armageddon the JWs believe will occur. At the end of the song, when "the girl opens the books she knows will settle all the scores," that book is the Bible.

    Prince embraced his new religion after becoming friends with former Sly and the Family Stone bassist Larry Graham, who was a Jehovah's Witness.
  • Prince was nominated for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance for this song at the 2005 Grammy Awards but lost to John Mayer's "Daughters."
  • Aside from its title, this song has no connection to Neil Young's "Cinnamon Girl."
  • There was a swirl of controversy around the music video for this song, which features actress Keisha Castle-Hughes as a Muslim girl who faces extreme prejudice after the September 11 attacks on the US and dreams of becoming a terrorist herself.
