Prince - Power From Above

"We want music and we will not give up the fight
We will not give up the fight" {x3}

Hey, oh!
All stand and raise your hand and say, "love"
What the hell is that thing?
My name is Carmen and I am here 2 pump U up
(Y'all need 2 get high] here we go!)

Go Carmen! {repeat throughout song}

Time and time again I hear the question why I wasn't enough
Leaving 'em all behind, I'm leaving 'em guessing that there's nothing left
Brother, U deceived me, wonder why I'm coming accurate
Hittin' them on the money before a Jane get settled
Cuz I'm bringin' it down 2 U and I'm gonna take U 2 the next phase
A girl rappin', how U see me from another race?
Trying 2 bite on me because U say I'm from around the way
Tackle me, U best believe the lyrics gonna ricochet
U on a mission, now U squish 'em like a psychopath
I'm on a mission 'til I split your microphone in half
G-g-giving U the knowledge that's been given me, U see it's like
A fanatic with a habit like a pipe is 2 a junkie
I'm on the right road, I found my way home
I gotta shush U now U see that I no longer roam
Givin' the message that I was sent 2 give full of love
Serving the Father cuz U see me, He's the power from above

Hey, we got the power
Ohh, we got the soul (We got the soul)
Hey, we got the power
(Hey lady, get your tail out of my yard, what the hell?)
Ohh, we got the soul

That's why I am flowin' just like a river full of water
My number out of order, why-don't-cha wreck your tape recorder
Cuz I'm explodin' just like the bombs in Vietnam
Evacuating buildings while U're sounding your alarm
With a rhythm, U see that evidence he givin'?
Now kickin' it beside U cuz just how long was he living
Just a concept that I created with a style
That rocking on the mic and y'all have a round
That I'm displayin', U see, U see, I'm busy prayin'
I'm on my hands and knees cuz every night, U know I'm sayin'?
2 my Father, because He does it 2 remember me
I'm giving my thanks 2 U because I'm willing 2 serve U faithfully
Give a day, I just can't understand how we forget
The one that's so responsible 4 giving us everything we get
Sometimes I wonder what the hell He was thinking of
Thinking of us, we need 2 be thinking of the power from above

Hey, we got the power
Ohh, we got the soul (We got the soul)
The power from above
Hey, we got the power
Ohh, we got the soul
U better get the power from above

Alright sir, U wanna tell us what happened?
Well hell, I was just standing here and all of a sudden a ship fell down there
(U need the power) {x2}
And this.. this girl got out and she started scaring the cows and everything
Hell
Larry, I think U better get the cuffs
OK ma'am, what's your name?
Carmen!
What, Larry, grab her, she's gettin' away!
(All stand and raise your hand and say, "love")
What the...?
What the hell is that thing?

(All stand and raise your hand and say, "love")
G-g-giving U the knowledge that's been given me, U see it's like
A fanatic with a habit like a pipe is 2 a junkie
(All stand and raise your hand and say, "love")
G-g-giving U the knowledge that's been given me, U see it's like {x2}
G-g-giving U the knowledge {x2}
G-g-giving U {x4}
G-g-giving U the knowledge that's been given me, U see it's like
A fanatic with a habit like a pipe is 2 a junkie

(Here we go) {repeated}
What the hell is that thing?

The power from above {x4}
What are U thinking of?
U need the power from above
From above
The power from above {x2}
(Ohh, we got the soul)
The power from above {x2}
(Ohh, we got the soul)
Where'd I get the power?
From above!

Hey, we got the power
Ohh, we got the soul (What the hell is that thing?)
(U need the power)
Hey, we got the power (All stand and raise your hand and say, "love")
Ohh, we got the soul
(U need the power)
Hey, we got the power
Ohh, we got the soul (What the hell is that thing?)
(U need, U need the power)
Hey, we got the power
