PRINCE - Ol' Skool Company FULL STREAM @3rdeyegirl @3rdeyeboy
We love Prince’s new slow-mid tempo ode to positive relationships with a number of political issues thrown in for good measure. Complete with Prince’s Camille-esque vocals, the track sizzles with traces of old and new Purple goodness. There is a lot to digest here thematically, but this is one of the few times when Prince has named dropped so many folks. From Sheila E. and former rival Morris Day to Christina Milian and even Maxwell, he shouts out a lot of folks. Peep this and get your groove on.  We wonder if he will do this one at Essence Festival in a few weeks.

Lyrics:
Every once in awhile
U need some ol’ skool company
Somebody that appreciates a sexy groove
And a old school melody
When god his son and the love of family
Ruled in the community
The songs you sing
Lift you up 2 heaven
A heaven we can believe in

Everybody’s talkin’ about hard times
Like it just started yesterday
People eye know they’ve been strugglin’
At least it seems that way
Fat cats on wall street
They got a bailout
While somebody else got 2 wait
700 billion but myold neighborhood
Ain’t nothing changed but the date

[Chorus]

Ain’t nothing ever come from complaining
Xcept a bitter heart, that’s true
Follow along and you gon wanna do
Something b4 the next chorus is thru
The songs we sing
They used 2 mean somethin
Now every other one is just mean
Rather than reminisce eye’m telling you this
It’s time 4 a brand new scene

[Chorus]

Everybody’s sinkin’ in the quicksand
Created by the keeper of time
Cast aside by using ancient tricks
That changes ur state of mind
They got you catering the whims of the flesh
B4 you get ur paper right
Call me old fashioned
But back in the day
There wasn’t no shorties in sight

1st come job then come marriage b4 shorty
Come out with the baby carriage call me
Old fashioned just clap yo hands just clap yo hands
Radio used 2 b local untouched by the man
Songs we used 2 sing used 2 mean something
Now they just bland like the drummer
Where’s the real drummer? michael b.
Mint condition, morris day
Jellybean wishin’ sheila e and brother john, sometimes me
’til dawn

If the white house is black
We gotta take the radio back
Power 2 the people
Power 2 the people

Put this thing on repeat go back 2 one
And just move ur feet tell ur friends prince and
The mplsound we can’t be beat

Suckas
