Verse 1
(I want to be your lover) (Partyup) (Controversy) (Prince)
(I want to be your lover) (Partyup) (Controversy)
(I want to be your lover) (Partyup) (Controversy) (Prince)
(I want to be your lover) (Partyup) (Controversy)
Verse 2
My name is Prince and I am funky
My name is Prince, the one and only
I did not come to funk around
Till I get your daughter, I won't leave this town
In the beginning (funky) God made the sea
But on the seventh day He made me
He was tryin' to rest why'all when He heard the sound
Sound like a guitar cold gettin' down
I tried to bust a high note, but I bust a string
My God was worried until he heard me sing
Verse 3
My name is Prince and I am funky
My name is Prince, the one and only
Hurt me!
(Do that, do that somebody) {x8}
Hurt me!
Verse 4
My name is Prince and I am funky
When it come to funk, I am a junkie
I know from righteous, I know from sin
I got to sides and they both friends
Don't try to clock 'em, they're much to fast
If you try to stop 'em, they'll kick that ass
Without a pistol, without a gun
When you hear my music, you be havin' fun
That's when I gotcha, that's when you mine
To tell the truth, tell me what's my line?
Verse 5
My name is Prince and I am funky (U can't stop Prince)
My name is Prince, the one and only (U can't stop Prince)
Hurt me!
(Do that, do that somebody) {x4}
Funky fresh for the 90's (Prince)
Verse 6
My name is Prince, I don't want to be King
'Cause I've seen the top and it's just a dream
Big cars and women and fancy clothes
Will save your face but it won't save your soul
I'm here to tell you that there's a better way
Would our Lord be happy if He came today?
I ain't sayin' I'm better, no better than you, huh
But if you want to play with me, you better learn the rules (Ow!)
Verse 7
My name is Prince and I am funky (U can't stop Prince)
My name is Prince, the one and only (U can't stop Prince)
I did not come to funk around (U can't stop Prince)
Till I get your daughter, I won't leave this town
I won't leave this town {x2}
I won't leave this, leave this, leave this?
Verse 8
My name is Prince and I am funky (U can't stop Prince)
My name is Prince the one and only (U can't stop Prince)
Funky fresh for the 90's
(Do that, do that somebody) {x4}
Hurt me!
Verse 9
The funkier I be, the funkier I get, ooh shit
Lickety split on the lyric, a new jack in the pulpit
Watch it deacon, your track is leakin'
What is this you're seekin'?
The syncopated rhymes are at their peak when?
You jumped on my D.I.C.K.
That's the one thing I don't play
The jock strap was too big for you anyway
You're just a simpleton
I'll bust you like a pimple, son
My star is too bright, boy
I'll sink you like the ship Poseidon Adventure
You're bumpin' dentures to be cocksure
There must be more coming from your mouth than manure
So with a flow and a spray, I say hey
You must become a Prince before you're King anyway
Verse 10
(Do that, do that somebody) {x2}
It's time I get ig-ig-ig-ig-ig-ig-ignorant
Def be the beat that I'm rockin'
Yo, so come get a hit
And put your thinking cap on
You've been forewarned
I call upon the inner forces I've got brewin' in my cauldron
That means my nugget, sometimes I'm rugged
The style I posses be havin' the other brothers buggin'
And this is four those who oppose
And propose to overexpose, disclose
Pose a threat to my brother
Like any other man makin' a stand
I'll be damned if I let you play this hand
I'm the blackjack dealer and the cards are stacked
What do you expect to win when you're used to playing craps?
Yeah, let's get rid of them, hmm?
Verse 11
(Do that, do that somebody) {x2}
It's gettin' tricky, that means a sticky situation
To resurrect a groove with feeling and give it this much affection
Passion flows who knows what lurks in the gallows of my mind
I put my foot in the ass of Jim Crow
Twelve inches of non-stop sole
I'm on a roll - yo P, it's time for the show
So do that, do that somebody
Wave your hands in the air, this is a motherfuckin' party
While you're layin' back, I'm on the attack
Paddywhack - give yourself a bone
This is my house and I'm prone
To layin' some chrome upside some motherfucker's dome
And I'm out
Verse 12
My name is Prince and I am funky
My name is Prince, the one and only
Verse 13
My name is Prince {x10}
