Prince - Paradigm

Hey brother, can you Paradigm?

...and that's the shifting of the tectonic plate, that
causes the earth to quake
When you're standing in the epicentre
Let the shaking begin
The shaking starts here

Hey brother, can you Paradigm?

And like the shifting of the combined weight of the massive ark lours
Of the head fake, that fake the numbers off of one's chest
Brother can you paradigm?

Pump pump fake feint fade forward jump slam dunk...in your face
The tip-off, the tappin, rushin' jumping backboard
crushing dunking...in your face
Brother can you paradigm?

Shape-shifting
Shifting the shapes of things to come
Plays and instant replays are plays to come
Came and went, time well spent
Brother can you Paradigm?

The tip-off, the tappin, rushin jumping backboard crushing dunking...in your face
Pump pump fake feint fade forward jump slam dunk...in your face

Like the 'o' in a tectonic plate
The shift that caused the earth to quake
You're standing in the epicentre
Let the shaking begin
The shaking starts here

Let the shake shake shaking begin, shaking begin,shaking begin
And brother can you paradigm?
Shake shake shaking begin, shaking begin, shakingbegin
You caught me shape-shifting
Shake shake shaking begin, shaking begin, shaking begin
The shapes of things that come
Instant replays are plays to come, came
went-time well spent
Brother can you paradigm?

She wears pretty like the word cute was tattooed on her smile
She's cute!/She wears gorgeous like she had it tailor-made
Fine like it's going out of style
She be sportin' the hell out of beautiful

And can you paradigm?
The shape of things that come
Ooh

She wears naked like she, (wait, wait, wait a minute)
She wears naked like she, (hang on)
She wears naked like the word "free" was inscribed on her mind
She's free!
She's fully dressed when she's sportin' in the raw
So free!

Oh, innocent as she sports her birthday suit
She be sportin' the hell out of nudity
Ooh?
And she's a fashion statement if I ever seen one

Par-par-paradigm
Yeah
Par-par-paradigm
Par-par-paradigm

I take the square root and I get boxed in every time
Brother can you paradigm?
Par-par-paradigm
Par-par-paradigm

Pump pump fake feint fade forward jump slam dunk
You ain't runnin' shit around here
Ooh ooh oooh ooh (runnin no things round here - runnin no things round here)
No pump pump fake feint fade forward jump - no you ain't runnin' shit around here
No tip-off, the tappin, rushing jumping backboard
crushing - naw, you ain't running shit round here
Runnin no things round here - running no things round here
You ain't runnin' shit round here
In your face
Brother can you paradigm?

She wears pretty like the word cute was tattooed on her smile

She wears gorgeous like she had it tailor made
Fine like she's going out of style
She been sportin' the hell out of nudity
She's cuuuuute!

Shape shifting, shifting like the tectonic plates that cause the earth to quake
You're standing in the epicentre
Let the shaking begin, shaking begin, shaking begin

Let the shaking begin, shaking begin, shaking begin shaking begin
The shape of things to come came/went - time well spent

And she's a fashion statement if I ever seen one
Always on time
Brother can you paradigm?

Ooh ooh
She makes me pop my finger on time
She makes me pop my finger on time (on time)
The sign of things that come 2 my mind
It rarely crossed my mind look both ways before you cross my mind
Brother can you spare a dime? (paradigm)
Brother can you paradigm?

The shape of things that come came

Two young whores in muck rows there
Ahead in time
The soul-searching beam of a strobe
As I rise, the cries of kings great
Made way there near here now gone far
And still we rise, I feel my wrists
No light refilled to ????? me
She sees him and she starts to run away
I scream silent comforts that are not heard
She's still pining for him - I've not said a word

For what?
For fear for truth?
Is truth delight?
Is truth delight?
Is truth delight?
Brother can you paradigm?

Time and darkness and space do not exist
.... alike ... and critics - I doubt them
At least ad lib
Can you paradigm?
And virtual IS real...
