Drawers Burnin’ is an unreleased song performed live on 7 June 1985, Prom Center, St. Paul, MN, USA (a one-off concert to celebrate Prince’s 27th birthday), performed as part of a lengthy medley which also included Irresistible Bitch, Possessed, The Bird and Holly Rock.

The song bears striking similarities with Fleetwood Mac’s World Turning from the band’s 1975 Fleetwood Mac album and seems to be Prince’s playfully mocking cover of the song, with perhaps improvised lyrics that include criticisms of the side effects of fame, including people trying to take Prince’s picture.

It is believed that no studio version exists, although the track was worked on during rehearsals for the show. The track is not known to have been performed live at any other time.
