Prince Joy In Repetition Lyrics

Last updated: 10/04/2007 11:00:00 AM


How long U been waitin'?
Well, I hope I can make it up 2 U
Give us a minute 2 get tuned up

He liked 2 frequent this club down upon 36th
Pimps and thangs like 2 hang outside, cuss 4 kicks

Talking 2 no one in particular, they say - "The baddest I am 2night"
4 letter words will not be heard, not up on this stage 2night
All the poets and the part-time singers always hang inside
Live music from a band plays a song called "Soul Psychodelicide"
Y'all wait a minute, wait a minute
Live music kickin' from the band, they singin': ("Soul Psychodelicide")
I like that
The song's a year long and had been playing 4 months
When he walked into the place
No one seemed 2 care
An introverted, "This is it," look on most of their faces
Talking about U, huh
2 words falling between the drops and the moans of his condition
I wanna hear Maceo Parker play "Joy In Repetition"
U 'bout 2 hear Candy Dulfer play "Joy In Repetition"
U 'bout 2 hear, hah, Larry Graham play "Joy In Repetition"
Oh, U 'bout hear Prince play "Joy In Repetition"
Turn it up, John

Up on the mic repeatin' 2 words over and over again
Was this woman he had never noticed before
He lost himself in the articulated manner in which she said them, huh
These 2 words - little bit behind the beat
Mean just enough 2 turn U on
Every time she said the words
Another one of his doubts were gone
Should he try 2 rap 2 her?
Should he stand and stare?
(No one else was watching her)
She... (Didn't seem 2 care)
And so (over and over she said the words) she said the words
Till he could take no more
He dragged her from the stage
2gether they ran through the back door, ha
In the alley over by the curb he said - "Tell me, what's your name?"
She only said the words again, what?
And it started 2 rain (Rain, rain, rain)
2 words falling between the drops and the moans of his condition
Holding someone is truly believing, say it, there's (Joy in repetition)
Think it ain't? Say it (There's joy in repetition)
(There's joy in repetition) {x8} (Yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah)
She said - "Love me", huh
2 words, say it now (Love me)
Hmm, whatcha say baby? Say it one more time (Love me)
Hey yeah, oh Lord (Love me)
