I wanna be your lover
I wanna be your lover
I wanna be your lover
I wanna be your lover

My name is Prince and I am funky
My name is Prince, the one and only
I did not come to funk around
'Til I get your daughter I won't leave this town

In the beginning God made the sea
But on the 7th day he made me
He was tryin' to rest y'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
'Til he heard me sing

My name is Prince and I am funky
My name is Prince, the one and only
Hurt me

Do that, do that, somebody
Do that, do that, somebody
Do that, do that, somebody
Do that, do that, somebody

Do that, do that, somebody
Do that, do that, somebody
Do that, do that, somebody
Do that, do that, somebody

My name is Prince and I am funky
When it come to funk I am a junky
I know from righteous, I know from sin
I got two sides and they're both friends

Don't try to clock 'em, they're much too fast
If you try to stop 'em they kick that ass
Without a pistol, without a gun
When you hear my music you'll be havin' fun

That's when I gottcha
That's when you mine
To tell the truth
Tell me what's my line?

My name is Prince and I am funky
My name is Prince, the one and only
Hurt me

Do that, do that, somebody
Do that, do that, somebody
Do that, do that, somebody
Do that, do that, somebody

My name is Prince, I don't wanna 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
But if you want to play with me, you better learn the rules

My name is Prince and I am funky
My name is Prince, the one and only
I did not come to funk around
'Til I get your daughter I won't leave this town

I won't leave this town
I won't leave this town
I won't leave this, leave this, leave this

My name is Prince and I am funky
My name is Prince, the one and only
Funky fresh for the 90's

Do that, do that, somebody
Do that, do that, somebody
Do that, do that, somebody
Do that, do that, some

The funkier I be, the funkier I get, oh 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 that 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"

Do that, do that somebody
Do that, do that somebody

It's time to get 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 that 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 for those who oppose
To 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?

Do that, do that somebody
Do that, do that somebody

It's gettin' tricky, I mean it's a sticky situation
To resurrect a groove with feeling and give it this much affection
Passion flows and who knows what lurks in the gallows of my mind
I put my foot in the ass of Jim Crow

12 inches of non-stop sole
I'm on a roll with P, it's time for the show
So do that, do that somebody
Wave your hands in the air
This is a motherfucking party

While you're laying 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 motherfuckers dome
And I'm out

My name is Prince and I am funky
My name is Prince, the one and only

My name is Prince
My name is Prince
My name is Prince
My name is Prince

My name is Prince
My name is Prince
My name is Prince
My name is Prince

My name is Prince
My name is Prince
