Ooh
Ever since was a little baby
Mmmm
had 2 have double everything
Mmmm
When they tell me that's enuff
That's when wanna fill my cup
2 the top, Johnny
Hear me sing

Emancipation
Free 2 do what wanna
Emancipation
C U N the purple rain
Emancipation
Free 2 do what wanna
Emancipation
Break the chain...

Ever since that Eve did un2 Adam
Alright
What somebody been sho'nuff doin' 2 me
Watch it!
've been tryin' 2 break the chain
Get my little ass out the game
'd rather sing with a bit more harmony, oh

Emancipation
Free 2 do what wanna
Emancipation
C U N the purple rain
Emancipation
Free 2 do what wanna
Emancipation
Break the chain...

Johnny - please, huh
When was on my knees
My back was broken
& my spirit ill at ease
& now it seems
Just like the autumn leaves
Ur money's turned from green 2 brown
& now U best believe

Emancipation
Free 2 do what wanna
Emancipation
C U N the purple rain
Emancipation
Free 2 do what wanna
Emancipation
Break the chain... (Emancipation)
Oh yeah
Well, sho'nuff

C U N the purple rain
(Emancipation) {repeat}
Emancipation
Free 2 do what wanna
Break the... chain!
Ooh... hey...
Alright

Emancipation
Free
Don't think ain't
Emancipation
