"Emancipation" as written by and Prince Rogers Nelson....
Ever since I was a little baby
I had 2 have double everything
When they tell me that's enough
That's when I want to fill my cup
2 the top, Johnny, hear me sing
CHORUS:
Emancipation - free 2 do what I want to
Emancipation - see you in the purple rain
Emancipation - free 2 do what I want to
Emancipation - break the chain, break the chain

Ever since that Eve did unto Adam, alright
What somebody been sho'nuff doin' 2 me (Watch it!)
I've been tryin' 2 break the chain
Get my little ass out the game
I'd rather sing with a bit more harmony, oh

CHORUS

Johnny please, huh, when I was on my knees
My back was broken and my spirit ill at ease
And now it seems just like the autumn leaves
Your money's turned from green 2 brown and now you best believe

CHORUS

(Emancipation) {repeat in BG}
Break the chain, oh yeah
Well, sho'nuff
See you in the purple rain
Emancipation - free 2 do what I want to
Break the.. break the.. break the chain!

Hey!
Alright!
Hey! {x4}

Emancipation
Free - don't think I ain't!

Emancipation

    General CommentPrince had just left his record company, Warner Bros. in early '96, & started his own label by releasing the 3-part album, "Emancipation". This being the title track says it all- He's finally free to do whatever he wants!
