Gigolos Get Lonely Too is the fifth track on The Time's second album What Time Is It?, and in March 1983, Gigolos Get Lonely Too was released as the album's third single. The song was written by Prince, although the song is officially credited to Morris Day. It was produced by Prince (as The Starr Company), but was credited to Morris Day and The Starr Company.

Basic tracking likely took place on 11 January 1982 (the same day as Bold Generation and You're All I Want) at Sunset Sound in Hollywood, California, during recording sessions that yielded tracks for The Time's second album What Time Is It?.
