My Name Is Prince

"Prince & the New Power Generation"
Ahh...

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

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}

The Morning Papers

He realized that she was new 2 love
Naive N every way
Every schoolboy's fantasy she was
That's Y he had 2 wait
If he poured his heart n2 a glass
& offered it like wine
She could drink & B back N time 4 the morning papers

They could take a walk down the ocean side
Make a wish on every wave
They could find a carousel & ride
Or kiss N every cave
They could contemplate the entire universe
Or just 1 star
Oh, just how far was the walk 4 the morning papers?
Yeah

Lemme play it 4 U 1 time, oh
Well
Hey
Ooh
Shucks

Y is age more than a number
When it comes 2 love?
Should we ask the ones who speculate
When they don't know what it's made of?
Should we ask the moonlight on ur face
Or the raindrops N ur hair?
Or should we ask the man who wrote it there N the morning papers?
Hey

Should we ask the moonlight on ur face
Or the raindrops N ur hair?
Should we ask the man who wrote it there N the morning papers?
Oh yes
Somebody help me sing it now

Just give me the beat and somethin' 2 flow on and b4 long

Slammin' and shakin' their booties, screamin' "Yo T, gimme more!"
So more is what I give 'em
NPG rockin' the track, yo, tell me how we livin' (Livin' large T)
Yeah, hah, U damn right, that's how it b (I see)
Gotta keep it that way so that 5-0 can't find me
And I'm sneakin' up the back of a pack of rats
They thought I was asleep but I'm sayin' it ain't all that (Naw)
Yeah, not with a 9 fadin' my back, I don't hang with the hat pack (Bang)
Yo, I'm runnin' silent - solo black
Sleek neat creepin' gangk peepin' (Oh)
Known 2 put a damn fool 2 sleep who pulls a cheap 1 (Whatcha do?)
That's when I change my speed and flow on
Then I start slippin' and skippin' and jumpin' around so much
I say bring it on

Rock 2 the F.L.O.W. (Wait a minute)

Rock 2 the F.L.O.W. (Wait a minute)

7

All 7 & we'll watch them fall
They stand N the way of love
& we will smoke them all
With an intellect & a savoir-faire
No 1 N the whole universe will ever compare
am urs now & U R mine
& 2gether we'll love thru all space & time
So don't cry
1 day all 7 will die

& saw an angel come down un2 me
N her hand she holds the very key
Words of compassion & words of peace
& N the distance, an army's marching feet (Hut 2 3 4...)
But behold
We will watch them fall

& we lay down on the sand of the sea
& b4 us animosity will stand & decree
That we speak not of love, only blasphemy
& N the distance, 6 others will curse me
But that's alright
4 will watch them fall (1 2 3 4 5 6 7)

All 7 & we'll watch them fall
They stand N the way of love
& we will smoke them all
With an intellect & a savoir-faire
No 1 N the whole universe will ever compare
am urs now & U R mine
& 2gether we'll love thru all space & time
So don't cry
1 day all 7 will die
Never grow old

& we will C a plague & a river of blood
& every evil soul will surely die N spite of
Their 7 tears but do not fear
4 N the distance, 12 souls from now
U & me will still B here
We will still B here

There will B a new city with streets of gold
The young so educated
They will never grow old
& there will B no death
4 with every breath
The voice of many colors sings a song that's so bold
Sing it while we watch them fall

All 7 & we'll watch them fall
They stand N the way of love
& we will smoke them all
With an intellect & a savoir-faire
No 1 N the whole universe will ever compare
4 am urs now & U R mine
& 2gether we'll love thru all space & time
So don't cry
1 day all 7 will die

Uh
Never grow old
Huh
Never grow old

And God Created Woman

Oh, oh

N a deep sleep fell
& the music starts 2 swell
1 of my ribs He took & it shall B
Bone of my bones
& God created woman

& we were naked & did not care
There's a time 2 take & a time 2 share
2 N love all around & all aware
Flesh of my flesh
& God created woman

Temptation sweet & so much
Surely die if neither 1 of us shall ye touch
Then again we could die from the rush
Heart of my heart
& God created woman
Woman

Oh, oh
Oh woman, my... woman
Do do doo...

N my darkest hour find
Many serpents who have lied (Lies)
Given half the chance
Still 'd run 2 ur side
Love of my love
God created woman

& if never C U again
It's alright, 4 am guilty of no sin
They can have U
But 'll have ur love N the end
Soul of my soul
God created woman {repeat}
Oh

Flesh of my flesh
Soul {repeat}
God created, God created woman {repeat}
Ooh

3 Chains O' Gold

If don't think about the fact that she left me
If don't C the pearls fall from the sky
If don't hear the accusations of blasphemy
If don't feel the tears N my eyes
This is the best day of my life
Ah, ah

U say U'll call me & then U don't
'll want 2 kiss U & then won't
We both do nothing & call it love
Is this love? {repeat}
Ah...

This morning wanted a cup of coffee
But didn't have any cream
Last night wanted some inspiration
But didn't have any dreams
Double with the fact that U belong 2 another
Whose name is self-righteousness
So evil girl
If 1 of us has a date with the undertaker
Which 1 will it B?
U can cry 4ever
But U'll get no sympathy
This is the best day of my life

've got 3 chains of gold
& they will shine 4ever
They R the nucleus of my soul
Melt down? No, they will never
{repeat lines}

Uh
Yes
Give back the chains
If U don't, U will die
Nothing should come between U &

've got 3 chains of gold
& they will shine 4ever
If 1 of us has 2 go
U will go b4 me
If 1 of us has 2 go (3 chains of gold)
U will go b4 me (3 chains of gold)
U will go b4 me, baby (They will shine 4ever)
Cuz sho'nuff say U will

Ah, ah
3 chains of gold
U will go b4 me {repeat}
've got 3 chains of gold
& they gonna shine!
4ever...!
3 chains of gold

"Excuse me, but ah, what's up with ur voice?"
It's a special phone: a tongue box
"A tongue box?
Oh, like N the movie, 'Barbarella?'"
Yeah, gives me courage, U know
Like a veil can hide behind
It talks at, around, thru
"OK, so Y R U giving me an interview?"
Becuz want U
"Pardon me?"
2 tell the truth
"Oh - well, will if U will
4 example, the 1st song of ur opera"
Ah, the opera
"Y don't U tell me ur real name?"
My name is Victor
"That is not the truth & U know it
How old R U?"
'm n2 my 5th soul now so that makes me 3 hundred... ("Umph")
"Y do U pretend 2 B a maze?"

"320? Hmm, don't sweat it, honey

Hmph
"Altho rumor has it the crown princess of Cairo is now a member of the NPG

Ahem
"Do U know that the princess is 16-years old?
How 'bout this for a story:
'320-year-old robs the cradle'
Hahaha, what a scandal"
Scandal
"U know, if U don't give me the real story
'll have 2 make 1 up of my own
So Y don't U tell me the truth..."

The Sacrifice Of Victor

What is sacrifice?
(We sacrifice) {repeat sample}
NPG N mass attack
Sonny, please
Church, if U will
Please turn 2 the Book of Victor
We'd like 2 start at the top if U don't mind
We sacrifice (Go'n say it, preacher)

was born on a bloodstained table
Cord wrapped around my neck
Epileptic till the age of 7
was sure heaven marked the day

We sacrifice
know joy lives 'round the corner
Joy 4 sale down on the corner (We sacrifice)
1 day 'll visit her, 'm gonna
Out on my block, 'm just a loner (We sacrifice)
When she tell me everything (Tell me)
That's when the angels sing (We sacrifice)
That's when the victory is sho'nuff
Sho'nuff down with the sacrifice (We sacrifice)
Help me (Go'n say it, preacher)

Mama held up her baby 4 protection
From a man with a strap N his hand
Ask little Victor about pain & rejection
U think he don't when he do understand

We sacrifice
know joy lives 'round the corner
Joy 4 sale down on the corner (We sacrifice)
1 day 'll visit her, 'm gonna
Out on my block, 'm just a loner (We sacrifice)
When she tell me everything (Tell me)
That's when the angels sing (We sacrifice)
That's when the victory is sho'nuff
Sho'nuff down with the sacrifice (We sacrifice)
Help me
S A C R I F I C E (We... sacrifice)
Go'n say it, preacher
We sacrifice {repeat}
If U'll turn the page (Go'n say it, preacher)

1967 N a bus marked, "Public Schools"
Rode me & a group of unsuspectin' political tools
Our parents wondered what it was like
2 have another color near
So they put their babies 2gether
2 eliminate the fear
We sacrifice - yes we did
Fighting 1 another (We sacrifice) (Go'n say it, preacher)
All becuz of color

The angel of hate
She taught me how 2 kick her
If she called me anything but Victor
"U mean like nigga?"
If the only thing that tells is Father Time
Then sacrifice is a mother sublime
We love it
Listen mother, we sacrifice

Go'n... say it, preacher (We sacrifice)
Well... (What is sacrifice?)
Hold ur text, deacon

Never understood my old friends laughin'
They got high when everything else got wrong
(Pass the booze over here)
Dr. King was killed & the streets
They started burnin'
When the smoke was clear
Their high was gone
Education got important, so important 2 Victor
A little more important than Ripple & weed
Bernadette, the lady
She told me (What she say?)
"Whatever U do, son
A little discipline is what U need...
U need 2 sacrifice" (We sacrifice)

know joy lives 'round the corner
Joy 4 sale down on the corner (We sacrifice)
1 day 'll visit her, 'm gonna (Oh yeah)
Out on my block, 'm just a loner (We sacrifice)
When she tell me everything (Tell me)
That's when the angels sing (We sacrifice)
That's when the victory is sho'nuff
Sho'nuff down with the sacrifice (We sacrifice)
What is sacrifice? (We sacrifice)
Oh yeah (S A C R I F I C E)
We sacrifice (Joy around the corner) (We'll do it)
'll do it (We sacrifice)
Excuse me, y'all (We sacrifice)
We don't mean 2 take up ur time (Joy around the corner)
But we got somethin' heavy on our minds (We sacrifice)
Yes we do (We sacrifice)

Sometimes U gotta leave the 1 U love
Somebody, anybody, everybody wave ur hand
4 joy around the corner
There's another sacrifice
But U got 2 do the best U can, y'all (We sacrifice)
Say, U gotta go thru it
U got 2 go thru it, y'all
Have mercy, yeah
It's that the phone? {repeat}
Tell 'em said...
Now Lord, have mercy on my feet (Joy around the corner)
Even if get tired
... got 2 keep on walkin' down this road
got 2 keep on walkin' down this road
(Joy around the corner)
Till reach my destination, yeah
(We sacrifice) (Bow down)
My name will B Victor
Amen
