Prince - 1999 (Rosario)

Dear Diary,

Wednesday, 1999, night before Thanksgiving:
Wondering what the Holy Day...
I got a lot 2 be thankful 4
While my people's catchin' hell in the worst way
There's as many black males and Latinos in jail
As there are in the streets, OK?
Is it my imagination or is there some deviation
From the part that God wanted us 2 play?
First of all, there's the name "Christmas"
Which means, get this: "Send Christ away"
Now I just realize what I missed as spoken by the priests of old
We're saying if the face of the true king was shown 2day
2 its foundations would shake the earth
And so the reason 4 the ganda and propa:
2 distort the king's color and the date of his birth
Open your mind, there's not much time

This is Rosario, 1999
