Dead like Elvis, check, check, 1 2, check
You know what he's sayin'?

Face down, face down

Somebody once told him that
He wouldn't take Prince through the ringer
Let him go down as a washed up singer

Ain't that a bitch? Thinkin' all along that he wanted to be rich
Never respected the root of all evil and he still don't to this day
Bury him face down, let the motherfuckers kiss ass, okay

Face down, face down

Told 'em he wanted to sing a song
About a black child goin' buck wild
And they just laughed in his face

Talk to your lawyer but you got no case
What you need to do is keep your place
Next time you pull a card, it better be a ace motherfucker
Or you can lay face down
(Face down)

1 2, face down, 1 2

Him and her meaning who I'm singin' about
And his psychoanalyst kinda saw the catalyst
As the devil with the blue jeans on

Ain't it kinda funny when you see the dawn?
Sign the name they gave ya but when them motherfuckers
Turn around ass up, you're what?

Face down, 1 2, face down
New power generation in the house, bury 'em all
Face down, yes, oh Lord, face down
Face down, face down

It's in his will, I read it, he shot to kill, he said it
For those who know the number and don't call
Fuck all y'all

Face down, face down, face down

NELSON, PRINCE ROGERS
