Prince - The Flow (Alternate Version)

Rock the house

Tony?
Yo?

What we gon' do now?

Rock 2 the F.L.O.W.

How?

Just like U're supposed 2

N.P.G. in max attack!

1, 2
(Ain't no stoppin' now!) {repeat in song}

Hang up on the sample
The time has come, forget the fun
I just begun my run
I'm bringin' hard just like a loaded gun
I must've claimed that the rest is mental
Break it down, let me kick the credential
Strong willed since the day I was born
In the flow when I'm bumpin' the norm
And I'm makin' it
Wonderin' if I'm fakin' it?
Wannabes in the í¢â‚¬Ëœhood kickin' back talkin' shit
U can't do it, he ain't nothin'
Gotta have a hole in a system that's bumpin'?
Fool, that's what they want U 2 think
Another punk caught in the bureaucratic gangk
And I ain't havin' it (Why?)
I work 2 hard
Hold me down, I'm just bored
Cuz statistics show I got the vote
U say U want some more?
Kick it up P, kick the flow

CHORUS:
Rock 2 the F.L.O.W.
Just like U're supposed 2 do
Rock 2 the F.L.O.W.
Just like U're supposed 2 do

U dare compare, son
U are unaware
2 make it, U see, takes a certain flair
4 some critics, the proudness and U
U know the ones that pay me like a well paid jigaboo (Whoo!)
They call me militant
2 them that represents a man who speaks his mind
And if U're hesitant 2 come correct in full effect
I give respect
Even if at times it means my neck
Yet U chastise and U criticize
But there's one thing U have not yet realized
I gotta movement
Oops, your lips stoop it
U try 2 diss me? (What?)
U look stupid
Yeah, but I forgive and forget
It makes me a stronger man
When my time not spent on an asshole
I just struck a blow
And 2 do that (What?)
U know it takes a flow

CHORUS
(Now everybody)
(Kick the flow)
(What's up?)

Michael B. in the house (Come on)
We got the juice
Michael B. in the house (Don't tell me we ain't funky)
We're gettin' funky 2night

Rock, rock, rock the house

Tony, somebody wanna know who U sleep with, man
Contradiction, your prediction is that
Is it really important where I take my naps? (No!)
Or who I sleep with?
People with real minds will peep this out
Then there goes your clout
Another fool don't know what they're talkin' about
Like the brother who tried 2 approach and attempt 2 roast (What?)
And even boast about how he knew me when
Damn, here we go again
U never went 2 school as far as I know
And now U're tryin' 2 say that U're writin' a bio (Oops!)
About me?
Boy, I hate 2 say it: í¢â‚¬Å“Nigga, please!í¢â‚¬?
I've done things U never dreamed before
Ask what I'm kickin'?
Yo, I'm kickin' the flow

CHORUS
(We're gettin' funky 2night everybody)
(Kick the flow)
(Just give the drummer some, alright)

Michael B. in the house {x2} {ad libbed vocals in BG}

CHORUS
(We're gettin' funky 2night)

Tony?

Yo?

I'm gonna give U this groove, but U know what?

What's that?
Ha ha
Ha ha

Gonna give U this groove, but U know what?

What's that?

Got 2 give somethin' back

I gotcha covered P

Who, who, who, who, who turn the mutha out? MPLS
Who, who, who, who? Uh oh, here we go, here we go!
Who, who, who, who, who turn the mutha out? MPLS
Who, who, who, who? Uh oh, here we go, here we go!

Kick the flow

Start the rap all over again

Kick the flow

The time has come, forget the fun
I just begun my run
Kick, kick, kick, kick the flow

(Kick 'em)
Strong willed since the day I was born (Yeah)
In the flow when I'm bumpin' the norm
And I'm makin' it (Yeah)
Kick the flow
Kickin' back talkin' shit
Another punk caught in the bureaucratic gangk
And I ain't havin' it (Why?)
Kick the flow
Kick {x5}

CHORUS
(Kick the flow)
(Now everybody)
(Kick, kick, kick the flow)

Well paid jigaboo (Whoo!)
2 come correct in full effect
I give respect
Even at times it means my neck
What? Yeah

U try 2 diss me, U look stupid (What?)
But I forgive and forget
I just throw a blow and we do that jig
Take a bow

CHORUS
(Gettin' funky 2night)
(Give the drummer some)

Kick kick, kick kick, kick (Rock, rock)
Kick kick, kick kick, kick (Rock the house)
Kick kick, kick kick, kick (No) {sample repeated}
Kick the flow
Kick kick, kick kick, kick {x3}
Put that straight kick on it
Kick the flow

CHORUS

CHORUS
(Kick the flow {x3})

Who, who, who, who? Uh oh, here we go, here we go!
Who, who, who, who, who turn the mutha out? MPLS
Who, who, who, who? Uh oh, here we go, here we go!
