Ahh...
wanna B ur lover - partyup - controversy - Prince {sample}

My name is Prince
& am funky
My name is Prince
The 1 & only
did not come 2 fuck around
Till get ur daughter
won't leave this town

N the beginning (Funky)
God made the sea
But on the 7th day
He made me
He was tryin' 2 rest, y'all
When He heard the sound
Sound like a guitar
Cold gettin' down
tried 2 bust the high note
But bust a string
My God was worried
Till He heard me sing

My name is Prince
& am funky
My name is Prince
The 1 & only
Hurt me...
Do that, do that somebody (Ow!) {repeat}

My name is Prince
& am funky
When it come 2 funk
am a junky
know from righteous
know from sin
got 2 sides
& they both friends
Don't try 2 clock 'em
They're much 2 fast
Mm, if U try 2 stop 'em
They'll kick that ass
Without a pistol
Without a gun
When U hear my music
U'll B havin' fun
That's when gotcha
That's when U'r mine
2 tell the truth
Tell me, what's my line? (Whoo!)

My name is Prince
& am funky (U better stop Prince)
My name is Prince
The 1 & only (U better stop Prince)
Hurt me
Do that, do that somebody (Ow!) {repeat}
Funky fresh 4 the 90's (Prince)

My name is Prince
don't wanna B king
Cuz 've seen the top
& it's just a dream
Big cars & women
& fancy clothes
Will save ur face
But it won't save ur soul
'm here 2 tell U
That there's a better way
Would our Lord B happy
If He came 2day?
ain't sayin' 'm better (Whoo!)
No better than U
But if U want 2 play with me
U better learn the rules

(U better stop Prince) {repeat}
Ow, my name is Prince
& am funky
My name is Prince
The 1 & only
did not come 2 fuck around
Till get ur daughter
won't leave this town {repeat}

My name is Prince
& am funky
My name is Prince
The 1 & only
Funky fresh 4 the 90's
Do that, do that somebody {repeat}
Hurt me

The funkier B
The funkier get - ooh, shit
Lickety-split on the lyric
A new jack N the pulpit
Watch it deacon
Ur track is leakin'
What is this U'r seekin'?
The syncopated rhymes R at their peak when
U jumped on my D-I-C-K
That's 1 thing don't play
The jockstrap was 2 big 4 U anyway
U'r just a simpleton
'll bust U like a pimple, son
My star is 2 bright, boy
'll sink U like the ship Poseidon Adventure
U'r bumpin' dentures 2 B cocksure
There must B more comin' from ur mouth than manure
So with a flow & a spray, say hey
U must become a Prince b4 U'r king anyway

Do that, do that somebody {repeat}

It's time get ignorant
Def B the beat that 'm rockin'
Yo - so come get a hit
& put ur thinkin' cap on
U've been 4warned
call upon the inner forces
've got brewin' N my cauldron
That means my nugget
Sometimes 'm rugged
The style posses B havin' the other brothers buggin'
& this is 4 those who oppose
Or propose 2 overexpose, disclose
Pose a threat 2 my brother
Like any other man makin' a stand
'll B damned if let U play this hand
'm the blackjack dealer
& the cards R stacked
Whataya expect 2 win when U'r used 2 playin' craps?

Do that, do that somebody {repeat}
(Fuck yeah, let's get ignorant N this mother)

It's gettin' tricky
That means a sticky situation
2 resurrect a groove with feelin'
& give it this much affection
Passion flows
Who knows what lurks N the gallows of my mind?
put my foot N the ass of Jim Crow
12 inches of non-stop sole
'm on a roll with P
It's time 4 the show
So do that, do that somebody
Wave ur hands N the air
This is a motherfuckin' party
While U'r layin' back
'm on the attack, paddywhack
Give urself a bone
This is my house & 'm prone
2 layin' some chrome
Upside some motherfucker's dome
& 'm out

My name is Prince
& am funky
My name is Prince
The 1 & only
My name is Prince {repeat}
