Lyrics:
Erotic City [Live version (a)]:

[From February 14 2003 version]

All of my purple life
I've been looking for a dame
That would wanna be my wife
That was my intention, babe

If we cannot make babies
Maybe we can make some time
Thoughts of pretty u and me
Erotic City come alive
We can funk until the dawn
Making love until cherry's gone
Erotic City come alive
Thoughts of pretty u and me

Everytime I comb my hair
Thoughts of you get in my eyes
I don't ???
I just want your creamy thighs

If we cannot make babies
Maybe we can make some time
Thoughts of pretty u and me
Erotic City come alive
We can funk until the dawn
Making love until cherry's gone
Erotic City come alive
Thoughts of pretty u and me
 
The Song:

"Erotic City" is a Prince song, that was a b-side for "Let's Go Crazy" in 1984.
 
Live:

Played live 18 times:
Earliest known live version: January 22, 2003
Latest known live version: May 1, 2016

Beck, having begun to do bits of Prince's "Raspberry Beret" in August 2002, started to do some of "Erotic City" in his "Funk medley."

Beck continued to play this medley a few more times in the winter of 2003. A few were much more substantial than just tossing in the chorus (for instance February 14 is basically a full song). They took this arrangement over to Australia and closed some shows with it there. This lasted throughout 2003 for the most part.

In 2006 there were a few other medley reports of "Erotic City" as well. Not as complete as the early 2003 versions, but still fun to hear.

I assume this was played more than we know, due to the fact that it appears in medleys and isn't on setlist reports unless I can hear the bootleg.
