Annie Christian Lyrics - Prince

Review The Song (1)

Annie Christian wanted
2 be number one
But her kingdom never comes
Thy will be done
She couldn't stand the glory
She would be second 2 none
The way Annie tells the story
She's His only Son

Annie Christian wanted
2 be a big star
So she moved 2 Atlanta
And she bought a blue car
She killed black children
And what's fair is fair
If U try and say U're crazy
Everybody say, "Electric chair!" (Electric chair!)

Annie Christian, Anti-Christ
Until U're crucified
I'll live my life in taxicabs
Annie Christian, Anti-Christ
Until U're crucified
I'll live my life in taxicabs

Annie Christian was a whore
Always lookin' 4 some fun
Being good was such a bore
So she bought a gun
She killed John Lennon
Shot him down cold
She tried 2 kill Reagan
Everybody say, "Gun control!" (Gun control!)


"Liar, liar, liar!"
Gotcha in a jam
Put your head on the block
Somebody say, "ABSCAM!" (ABSCAM!)

Lyrically...this song is ingenious | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/21/2005

Prince never ceases to amaze me with his lyrics, and this song is a perfect example. These lyrics are on two levels, one that borders on insanity and irony, and another level that makes the listening uncomfortable by using historical tradgedies. This uncomfortableness makes the listener think about society and how one person can change the thinking of an entire nation based upon their actions. If you've ever heard the way Prince sings this song and the music, much like the lyrics it they almost fall apart but there is something that holds the entire thing together.
