Prince - The Work Pt. 1

Every time I watch the other people news
I see a false picture of myself, another one of you
They try 2 tell us what we want, what 2 believe
Didn't that happen in the Garden

When somebody spoke 2 Eve?
But I'm willing 2 do The Work
Willing 2 do what I gotta do
I'm willing 2 do The Work

Tell me now - what about you?
Look around and tell me you're Sun is Risen
When you're brothers and sisters are in the Fall
What is left 2 give when are work is done?

What do we own besides the right 2 crawl?
see we're living in a system that the devil designed
And suffering from this devil's most heinous crime
He's tried 2 keep us from the reason we were born

That is 2 be the living truth in human 4m
But I'm willing 2 do The Work
Willing 2 do what I gotta do
I'm willing 2 do The Work

Tell me now - what about you?
This work is not an easy task
But this is the work we must do 4 Revelation 2 come 2 pass
This work is the kind that turns you're back on the Ruling Class

By putting them in their place just like the past
Taste it, ain't it sweet sweet?
Gotta lotta work 2 do
Taste it, ain't it sweet sweet?

Gotta lotta work 2 do
Nothing can stop us
Whatever's in are way
We got 2 go through it 2 get 2 it

I heard somebody say,
"I'm willing 2 do The Work
Willing 2 do what I gotta do
I'm willing 2 do The Work

Tell me now - what about you?"
Thank you
