Butterscotch Clouds

Inspired by the lyrics for “Starfish and Coffee”

Starfish and coffee
Maple syrup and jam
Butterscotch clouds, a tangerine
And a side order of ham
If you set your mind free, baby
Maybe you’d understand
Starfish and coffee
Maple syrup and jam.

Prince Sign o the Times, 1987 see it here
