Next Time Wipe The Lipstick Off Your Collar is the fifth track on Sheila E.'s first album The Glamorous Life. The song was written by Prince, but credited to Brenda Bennett.

Basic tracking took place on 28 December 1983 at Sunset Sound in Hollywood, California (the day after The Glamorous Life, and a day before She's Always In My Hair).

Sheila E.'s vocals were not recorded recorded until 1 & 2 April 1984, again at Sunset Sound. Next Time Wipe The Lipstick Off Your Collar is notable for featuring the first use of violin (by Novi Novog) and accordion (by Nick DeCaro) on a Prince-related track.
