Are there any Prince songs that repeat the title every few lines?

I've had the feeling that Plastic Cup's "What You Gonna Do" (from the Tom Gates Mixtape, not an actual band) might be a parody of a specific Prince song, yet I can't name it.

Turn It Up and Lisa are a few good examples. Style too.

Don't most of them do that....have the song title in the chorus or elsewhere?

"Yah U Know" is another example, but there are many.

(Since I can't post a pic) In the words of Mrs Robinson from Gumball: "Meh" to this song 😂. Sounds absolutely like no Prince song I've ever heard 😀 🙏

How do you jump from that song to Prince? It sounds like it has roughly zero to do with anything inspired by Prince.

.

Plenty of other bands (Talking Heads come to mind mostly), but I cannot hear Prince in it.

Nah, most of them only mention the song titles in the choruses. The ones listed above repeat them a lot within the verses themselves.

It is specifically a song in the style of Psycho Killer by Talking Heads. Like a Rutles kind of thing.
