"Face Down" as written by and Prince Rogers Nelson....
(Dead like Elvis) {sample repeated in song}
Check, check, 1 2, check
you know what he's sayin'?

Face down! [Repeat: x2]

Somebody once told him that he wouldn't take Prince through the ringer
Let him go down as a washed up singer
Ain't that a bitch?
Thinkin' all along that he wanted to be rich
Never respected the root of all evil and he still don't to this day, huh
Bury him face down, let the motherfuckers kiss a ass, OK?

Face down! [Repeat: x2]

Told 'em he wanted to sing a song about a black child goin' buck wild
And they just laughed in his face
Talk to your lawyer but you got no case
What you need to do is keep your place
Next time you pull a card, it better be a ace motherfucker
Or you can lay face down (Face down!)

1 2
Face down! 1 2

Horn [Repeat: x2]
Bass [Repeat: x2]

Him and her meaning who I'm singin' about
And his psychoanalyst kinda saw the catalyst
As the devil with the blue jeans on, huh
Ain't it kinda funny when you see the dawn?
Sign the name they gave ya
But when them motherfuckers turn around ass up, you're what?

Face down! 1 2
Face down! New Power Generation in the house, bury 'em all
Face down! Yes, oh Lord
Face down!

Orchestra [Repeat: x3]
Face down!
Orchestra
Face down!

It's in his will, I read it
He shot to kill, he said it
for those who know the number and don't call
Hmph, fuck all y'all

Face down! [Repeat: x53

    General CommentAs much as I love Prince, I hate it when he tries to rap, such as in this song. About the only good rap I ever heard him do was in "Gett Off" & that's about it! I can't believe I recently saw an official video for this song on IMEEM.
