The Word
Recorded circa 2005 and released as the 9th track on album 3121 (March 21, 2006). Written by Prince.

 
What is this new exaltation that I just can't explain?
What r these new inspirations that I can get outta my brain?
How am I gon' sleep with this feelin' rushin' all thru my veins?
Get up, come on, let's do something, don't U wanna go get saved?

The night is calling U 2 act, act upon every urge
U can't get no satisfaction if U ain't got the courage
I don't know what U're afraid of, I don't know what U heard
Get up, come on, let's do something, don't U wanna know the Word?

Who's gonna save us when them spiders get next 2 U?
Spinnin' their sticky webs around what U do
We gotta safeguard against forked tongue
And the treachery of the wicked 1
Get up, come on, let's do something

Don't matter how far U have 2, the Truth has got 2 b told
Don't matter how shiny ur lips, they'll never b streets of gold
They might try 2 get us crazy cuz they don't know what I've heard
We got this new exaltation, I'm talkin' about the Word

Who's gonna save us when them spiders get next 2 U?
Spinnin' their sticky webs around what U do
We gotta safeguard against forked tongue
And the treachery of the wicked 1
Get up, come on, let's do something

Get up, come on, let's do something, no reason 2 feel this pain
Get up, come on, let's do something, come on, go, let's get saved
Get up, come on, let's do something, no reason 2 feel this pain
Get up, come on, let's do something, come on, go, let's get saved

Get up, come on, let's do something {repeat}
Get up, come on, let's do something, don't U wanna hear the Word?
