Props N' Pounds - Prince

{Kurt Loder - MTV News}:
"Here was somebody that's obviously playing rock and roll who is also a funk
artist, who covered a lot of categories into which artists have been separated
for so long and brought them 2gether effortlessly."

Props n' pounds, props n' pounds
Love 4 one another is the only sound 2day
Uh, positivity is the only way

CHORUS:
Props n' pounds, props n' pounds
Love 4 one another is the only sound 2day
Negative people don't get 2 play
Props n' pounds, props n' pounds
Why U wanna holla when U know what the Bible say?
Positivity is the only way

Once again when the coin is tossed and lands upon the sea
Unsuspecting lives are lost when they didn't have 2 be
When the book is opened and the Son condemns them all
Pagan holidays, crucifixes - $100 tears will fall

CHORUS
(Hey)
(No play)
(U know it)

All the ones still in the game never give me pounds
Egotists 2 proud 2 say they're the opposite of found
Worrying about the validity of the ruler's crown
When everyone ought 2 be in line giving props n' pounds

CHORUS
(Hey hey hey)
(Ooow)
(Hey hey hey...)

Props n' pounds {x3}

Once again when the money get tossed
Never gonna see NPG floss
Keeping U happy is the only cost
Love God and never will your life will be lost
Listen 2 the words that will save every one
Safe sex campaign taught about a gun
With CON as the prefix, suffix be the DOM
Look at 'em both and tell me something
What's in the Trojan Horse lubrication?
Nothing goes in my woman 'cept the Son
Rewind

" ... I mean he's just one of the greatest live performers there is.
But all this other stuff, the attitude, going on around it, I mean U can be
a great musician and not have the right kind of approach. And Prince has the
right approach 2. ...I think the gift of simplicity is like a keynote of art.
I mean, he doesn't, he-he knows when to stop... usually."

Props n' pounds {x2}
Props n' pounds, props n' pounds {x4}
(Hey hey hey hey hey)

Props n' pounds, props n' pounds
Love 4 one another is the only sound 2day
(Everybody come, let's talk)
(U better choose right, U better choose right before your life get lost)
Yeah
Props n' pounds
