PRINCE

PRINCE - The Exodus Has Begun

rate me

Have mercy, uh

The exodus has begun (The exodus has begun!)

Have mercy, uh

The exodus has begun

Now these are the names of the New Power Generation

(These are the names)

The funkiest suckers of the new gold nation

Polyvinyl acetate, New Power Soul

Guaranteed 2 stick 2 the roof of your Oldsmobile muthafucka

CHORUS:

Long live the New Power!

Have mercy

Generation after generation, the soul will never die

(The exodus has begun)

Long live the New Power!

Have mercy

We don't cry, we don't die, we just multiply

Polyvinyl acetate, New Power Soul (Mercy)

The exodus has begun

These are the names of the children of the sun

Pumpin' the love sign in the days of wild

Tearin' shit up with a vengeance and still they smile (Still they smile)

Though their lives were made bitter with hard labor and no pay

These are the children that will come 2 save the day

(These are the children)

The exodus has begun

Have mercy

CHORUS

La da da da, da da daaa (U ain't gonna hurt me)

Sho do do do do doo (Have mercy)

La da da da, da da daaa (U ain't gonna hurt me)

Have mercy

(Behold)

Behold the children of the New Power

Are more and mightier than U (Mighty, mighty)

U that have scorned and held back the inevitable

Must now come 2 grips with the truth

(All that is good in the eyes of heaven)

All that is good in the eyes of heaven

Will rebuke your powder monkey ways

(Have mercy, mercy, mercy)

And let that same heaven have mercy

When the wrath of the sun knocks upon your gate

Have mercy

The exodus has begun

(New... New Power!)

Uh, brothers and sisters

(Stop me if U want, it's between U and me)

The exodus has begun

Uh (New Power!)

Just..

Just cause..

Just cause it's.. (Have mercy)

Just cause it's nasty..

Just cause it's nasty it don't..

Just cause it's nasty it don't mean..

Just cause it's nasty it don't mean a.. {loop}

Just cause it's nasty it don't mean a thing

All that is good is nasty

All that is good, all that is good (Have mercy)

All that is good in heaven (The exodus has begun)

All that is good, all that is good (Have mercy)

All that is good in heaven (The exodus has begun)

Long live the New Power! (Long live)

Have mercy

Generation after generation, the soul will never die

The exodus has begun

Long live the New Power! (Long live)

Have mercy (Live a little while)

We don't cry, we don't die, we just multiply

Spatch cocks in black face offer us pennies (Offer us pennies)

When it's millions and millions upon millions they reap

(When it's millions, when it's millions) (Pluck his eye again!)

How in the world can we call ourselves equal

When their wages outweigh

When their wages outweigh the time that they keep?

(Pluck his eye again!)

And if they stood up and behaved like the humans they're supposed 2

As opposed 2 the way they are not

Then this New Power Soul would not be so soulful

(Then this New Power Soul would not be soulful)

And the water they're in would not be so hot

(And the water would not be so hot)

The exodus has begun (The exodus has begun!)

Have mercy

Uh (The exodus has begun!)

The exodus has begun

Now sing

Long live the New Power!

(Long live a New Power where all that is good in heaven)

Brothers and sisters

Long live the New Power!

(The exodus has begun!) (Have mercy!)

(Long live a New Power where, where... mercy!)

Come on

(The exodus has begun!) Uh

(Long live) Have mercy

Play muthafuckas (The exodus has begun!) Uh

(New Power) Have mercy

(Long live the New Power!) Yes muthafuckas, yes

The exodus has begun!

(Generation after generation, the soul will never die) Have mercy

(Long live the New Power!) Yes muthafuckas, yes

The exodus has begun!

(We don't cry, we don't die, we just multiply) Have mercy

La da da da, da da daaa (Yes muthafucka, yes)

Sho do do do do doo (Have mercy) Uh

La da da da, da da daaa (Yes muthafucka, yes)

(New Power) Have mercy

Oh yeah, U can sing

But what the fuck are U complainin' about baby?

Oh yeah, I will read your big ass

Cuz I think U're thinkin' about readin' me

And when the people ask U everywhere

Is that really all your hair?

Tell'em U don't tell a lie

Bald-headed son of a motherfuckin' housefly

And like George said (What?)

Get satisfied

Let's get satisfied, let's get satisfied

(Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha...)

La da da da, da da daaa

Sho do do do do doo (New Power!) (Have mercy)

La da da da, da da daaa

(Long live the New Power!) Whoo, yeah, yeah

(Stop me now)

Stop this muthafucker like we intend 2 finish, yeah

(New Power!) (Have mercy)

Mercy

(Long live the New Power!) A New Power

(The exodus has begun!) (Have mercy)

(Generation after generation, the soul will never die) Oh, yeah

(Long live the New Power!)

Shit, y'all can't fuck with me (The exodus has begun!)

(We don't cry, we don't die, we just multiply)

La da da da, da da daaa (The exodus has begun!) Oh, oh

(New Power!) (Have mercy) Oh

La da da da, da da daaa (The exodus has begun!) Oh, oh

{refrain repeats in BG}

(Wait a minute, let me check my messages)

Spatch cocks in black face offers us pennies

When there's millions and millions that they reap

Millions and millions that they reap

What the fuck is that about?

What the fuck is that about?

What the fuck is that shit about?

We don't play that muthafuckin' shit!

U think we got a muthafuckin' joystick up our ass or somethin'?

Fuck that!

I don't know what U thinkin' about

But the exodus has begun muthafuckas!

(New Power!)

The exodus has begun

U ain't gonna hear that shit nowhere else

Ha, ha, ha

This shit is dedicated 2 the memory of His Royal Badness

I know his name, that muthafuckin' Prince
