(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

1999

[Verse 1]
I was dreaming when I wrote this
Forgive me if it goes stray
But when I woke up this morning
I could have sworn it was judgment day
The sky was all purple
There were people running everywhere
Trying to run from the destruction
You know I didn't even care, cause they say

[Chorus:]
2000 zero, zero party over
Oops out of time
So tonight I'm gonna party
Like it's 1999

[Verse 2:]
I was dreaming when I wrote this
So sue me if I goes to fast
But life is just a party
And parties weren't meant too last
War is all around us
My mind says prepare to fight
So if I gotta die I'm gonna
Listen to my body tonight, cause they say

[Chorus]

[Verse 3:]
If you didn't come to party
Don't bother knocking on my door
I got a lion in my pocket
And baby he's ready to roar
Everybody's got a bomb
We could all die any day
But before I'll let that happen
I'll dance my life away, They say

[Chorus x2]

[Ad-Libs]

[Chorus]

[Ad-Libs]

Little Red Corvette

[Verse 1:]
I guess I should have know, by the way you parked your car
Side ways, that it wouldn't last
See your the kind of person, who believes in making out once
Love 'em and leave them fast
I guess I must be dumb, cause she had a pocket full of horses
Trojan and some of them used
But it was Saturday night, I guess that makes it alright
And u say, what have I got to lose
(Honey I say)

[Chorus:]
Little red corvette
Baby your much too fast
Little red corvette
You need a love that's gonna last

[Verse 2:]
Guess I should have closed, my eyes when you drove me
To the places where your horses run free
Cause I felt a little I'll, as I saw all the pictures
Of the jockeys that were there before me
Believe it or not, I started to worry
I wonder if I had enough class
But it was Saturday night, I guess that makes it alright
And you say, Baby have you got enough gas
(Oh Yeah)

[Chorus:]
Little red corvette
Baby your much too fast, yes you are
Little red corvette
You need to find a love that's gonna last

[Verse 3:]
A body like yours, ought to be in jail
Cause it's on the verge of being obscene
Move over baby, give me your keys
Cause I'm a tame your little read love machine

[Chorus]

[Ad-libs]

Delirious

I get delirious whenever you're near
Lose all self-control, baby just can't steer
Wheels get locked in place
Stupid look on my face

'Cuz I get delirious (Delirious)
Delirious (Delirious)
Delirious (Delirious)

And girl I got a lot

Delirious (Delirious)
Delirious (Delirious)

I get delirious whenever you're near (Delirious)
Girl U gotta take control 'cuz I just can't steer
You're just 2 much 2 take

Girl U gotta take me 4 a little ride up and down
In and out and around your lake

I'm delirious (Delirious)
U, U, U get me delirious (Delirious)
Baby, lay me down

The room, the room, the room is spinnin' around (Delirious)
Yeah, I'm delirio, yeah, oh I'm, oh I'm (Delirious)

Baby you're the purple star in the night supreme
You'll always be a virgin for no man deserves your love
I only pray that when U dream, I'm the 1 U dream of
I pray that when U dream, U dream of how we kissed
Not with our lips but with our souls
Stop me if I bore U
Why is it that I think we'd be so good in bed?
Can U hear me? Why do I love U so much?
It's strange, I'm more comfortable around U when I'm naked,
Can U hear me?
I wonder if U have any mercy, don't torture me

Stop the music baby, automatic fool

When it comes 2 U I'm automatic baby
There's no 1 else like me
I'm the best you'll ever find
No 1 else could understand U, you're 2 complex
They say nothing's perfect, but they don't know U
That's automatic 2
Can U hear me? (A-U-T-O-matic)
Yes, I'm addicted 2 your pleasure
I'm addicted 2 your pain

Hey
Fasten your seat belts
Prepare 4 takeoff

(I remember how U kissed me)
(Not with your lips but with your soul)
(With U I'm never bored, talk 2 me some more)
(I can hear U, I'm going 2 have 2 torture U now)

Free

Don't sleep 'til the sunrise, listen 2 the falling rain
Don't worry 'bout tomorrow, don't worry 'bout your pain

Never let that lonely monster take control of U

Be glad that U r free
Free 2 change your mind
Free 2 go most anywhere, anytime
Be glad that U r free
There's many a man who's not
Be glad 4 what U had baby, what you've got
Be glad 4 what you've got

I know (my?) heart is beating, my drummer tells me so
If U take your life 4 granted, your beating heart will go
So don't sleep until you're guilty, 'cuz sinners all r we
There's others doing far worse than us, so be glad that U r free

Be glad that U r free
Free 2 change your mind
Free 2 go most anywhere, anytime

Soldiers are a marching, they're writing brand new laws
Will we all fight together 4 the most important cause?
Will we all fight 4 the right 2 be free?
Free (Be glad that U r free)

Lady Cab Driver

Taxi! Taxi!

Lady cab driver - Can U take me 4 a ride?
Don't know where I'm goin' 'cuz I don't know where I've been
So just put your foot on the gas - let's drive
Lady - don't ask questions
Promise I'll tell U no lies
Trouble winds r blowin', I'm growin' cold
Get me outta here - I feel I'm gonna die

Lady cab driver, roll up your window fast
Lately trouble winds r blowin' hard, and I don't know if I can last

Lady - I'm so lonely
I know that's not the way 2 be
Don't want isolation, but the air it makes me cold
Drive it, baby, drive it, drive this demon out of me
Take me 2 your mansion
Honey, let's go everywhere
Help me girl I'm drownin', mass confusion in my head
Will U accept my tears 2 pay the fare?

Lady cab driver, roll up your wndow fast
Lately trouble winds r blowin' hard, and I don't know if I can last

Lady cab driver - Can U take me 4 a ride?

Lady cab driver, roll up your window fast
Lately trouble winds r blowin' hard, and I don't know if I can last

This is 4 the cab U have 2 drive 4 no money at all
This is 4 why I wasn't born like my brother, handsome and tall
This is 4 politicians who r bored and believe in war
This - Yeah, that's 4 me, that's who that 1's 4
This is 4 discrimination and egotists who think supreme
And this is 4 whoever taught U how 2 kiss in designer jeans
That 1's 4- That 1's 4- 4 U have 2 live
This 1's 4 the rich, not all of 'em, just the greedy -
The ones that don't know how 2 give
This 1's 4 Yosemite Sam and the tourists at Disneyland
And this 1- ooh! Yeah - That's the 1.
That's 4- that's 4 the- the creator of man
This is 4 the sun, the moon, the stars, the tourists at Disneyland
This is 4 the ocean, the sea, the shore
This is 4- and that's 4 U, and that's who that 1's 4
This is 4 the women, so beautifully complex
This 1's 4 love without sex
This is 4 the wind that blows no matter how fast or slow
Not knowing where I'm going
This galaxy's better than not having a place 2 go
And now I know (I know)

Lady cab driver

Lady cab driver
Lady cab driver

A body that'll do U right
Tell me - Am I qualified?

Let me take U 'round the world

Good evening. This is your pilot Prince speaking.
U r flying aboard the Seduction 747
And this plane is fully equipped with anything your body desires

If 4 any reason there is a loss in cabin pressure
I will automatically drop down 2 apply more
2 activate the flow of excitement
Extinguish all clothing materials and pull my body close 2 yours
Place my lips over your mouth, and kiss, kiss, normally
In the event there is overexcitement
Your seat cushion may be used as a flotation device

We ask that U please observe the "No Letting Go" sign
I anticipate a few turbulence along the way

We r now making our final approach 2 Satisfaction
Please bring your lips, your arms, your hips
Into the upright and locked position
4 landing - Can U feel it? Can U feel it?
Yeah

{ Let me take it around }
{ Let it all hang out }

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Welcome 2 Satisfaction
Please remain awake until the aircraft has come 2 a complete stop
Thank U 4 flying Prince International
Remember, next time U fly, fly the International Lover
