S.S.T.
Recorded September 2, 2005 after listening to Sade's "The Sweetest Taboo" and observing the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans. Released the next day via NPG Music Club and later as a CD single (October 25, 2005) with all proceeds going to relief aid. Written by Prince.

 
Who will b a guest n ur tent?
Certainly not the ones who don't wanna repent
And keep givin' guns 2 the poorest of our nation's sons

Who is gonna call U by name?
With no confusion, trinity or preacher's vain
Who says it every time and opens up the eyes of the blind

Who will b the 1 n His bed?
Certainly not the 1 who put the thorns on His head
And wished Him dead while they took His daily bread

Which 1 is of value 2 U?
The 1 depletin' the oil supply or the 1 that renews it
And keeps the peace (Keep the peace)
Like the groove n Sade's "Sweetest Taboo"

Give it 2 me, give it 2 me, the sweetest
Give it 2 me, give it 2 me
Ooh, give it 2 me, give it 2 me, the sweetest
Ah
Can I groove a little bit?
Ooh (Ah)
That felt good
Let me groove a little bit
Oh yeah

Who will b a guest n ur tent? (Look at there)
R U gonna b happy with how ur life has spent?
Did U have open arms 4 each and everybody U met?
Oh

Or did U let them die n the rain?
Endless war on poverty or hurricane
It's time 4 another groove like Sade's "Sweetest Taboo"

Oh, give it 2 me, give it 2 me, the sweetest
Oh, give it 2 me, give it 2 me (Ooh)
Oh, give it 2 me, give it 2 me, the sweetest
C'mon, c'mon
Oh, give it 2 me, give it 2 me, the sweetest (Ooh)
Give it 2 me, give it 2 me (Ooh Lord)
Oh, give it 2 me, give it 2 me, the sweetest
Oh yeah

2 the breakdown
B cool everybody
New Orleans
