"Here was somebody that was obviously playing rock 'n' roll
Who is also a funk artist who covered a lot of categories
N2 which artists have been separated 4 so long
And brought them 2gether effortlessly"

Props n' pounds, props n' pounds
Love 4 1 another is the only sound 2day
Uh, positivity is the only way

Props n' pounds, props n' pounds
Love 4 1 another is the only sound 2day
Negative people don't get 2 play
Props n' pounds, props n' pounds
Why U wanna holla when U know what the Bible say?
Positivity is the only way

Once again when the coin is tossed and lands upon the sea
Unsuspecting lives r lost when they didn't have 2 b
When the book is opened and the Son condemns them all
Pagan holidays, crucifixes, hundred dollar tears will fall

Props n' pounds, props n' pounds
Love 4 1 another is the only sound 2day (Hey)
Negative people don't get 2 play (No play)
Props n' pounds, props n' pounds
Why U wanna holla when U know what the Bible say? (U know it, ooh)
Positivity is the only way

All the ones still n the game never give me pounds
Egotists 2 proud 2 say they're the opposite of found
Worryin' about the validity of the ruler's crown
When everyone ought 2 b n line givin' props n' pounds

Props n' pounds, props n' pounds (Hey...)
Love 4 1 another is the only sound 2day (Ow)
Negative people don't get 2 play
Props n' pounds, props n' pounds (Hey...)
Why U wanna holla when U know what the Bible say?
Positivity is the only way (Oh yeah, ow)
Props n' pounds, props n' pounds
Props n' pounds

Once again when the money get tossed
Never gonna see NPG floss
Keepin' U happy is the only cost
Love God and never will ur life will b lost
Listen 2 the words that'll save everyone
Safe sex campaign tout about a gun
With "CON" as the prefix, suffix b the "DOM"
Look at 'em both and tell me something
What's n the Trojan Horse lubrication?
Nothin' goes n my woman except the Son
Rewind

"I mean he's just 1 of the greatest live performers there is
But all this other stuff, the attitude going on around it
I mean U can b a great musician and not have the right kind of approach
And Prince has the right approach 2...
I think the gift of simplicity is like a keynote of art
I mean, he doesn't, he... knows when 2 stop... usually"

Props n' pounds
Ooh, props n' pounds
Props n' pounds, props n' pounds
Props n' pounds, props n' pounds (Hey...)
Props n' pounds, props n' pounds (Ooh)
Props n' pounds, props n' pounds (Hey...)
Props n' pounds, props n' pounds
Love 4 1 another is the only sound 2day
(But if U can't plan 2 come, let's talk)
Oh, U better choose right (Props n' pounds, props n' pounds)
U better choose right b4 ur life get lost
Yeah
Props n' pounds
