"3 Chains O' Gold" as written by and Prince Rogers Nelson....
If I don't think about the fact that she left me
If I don't see the pearls fall from the sky
If I don't hear the accusations of blasphemy
If I don't feel the tears in my eyes
This is the best day of my life
You say you'll call me and then and then you don't
I'll want to kiss you and then I won't
We both do nothing and call it love
Is this love?
Is this love?

This morning I wanted a cup of coffee
But I didn't have any cream
Last night I wanted some inspiration
But I didn't have any dreams
Coupled with the fact that you belong to another
Whose name is self-righteousness
So evil girl, if one of us has a date
With the undertaker, which one will it be?
You can cry forever, but you'll get no sympathy
This is the best day of my life

[Repeat: x2]
I've got 3 chains o' gold
And they will shine forever
They are the nucleus of my soul
Melt down, no, they will never

Give back the chains, if you don't you will die
Nothing should come between you and I

I've got 3 chains o' gold
And they will shine forever
If one of us has to go
You will go before me

If one of us has to go (3 chains o' gold)
You will go before me
(3 chains o' gold)
You will go before me, baby (they will shine forever)
Cause I sho 'nuff say you will

(3 chains o' gold)
(you will go before me)
(you will go before me)
(you will go before me)
(u will go before me)

I've got 3 chains o' gold
They gonna shine

Forever, forever, forever

(3 chains o' gold)

    General CommentIt's a opera orchestra demonstration of the genius portraying the 3 stages of a broken relationship.It' all the stages of feelings you go through when you break up with someone you really still care for. At first you are content thinking everything is going to be alright but you really not sure if it's the end or just a temporary seperation to get thoughts together but as time go on you become inferiated and you have this desperate attempt to fight back and keep it to protect your feeling then you not truly letting go yet but then one day you wake after a long while and that person is still not there you come to except it,pick up your pieces and move on.

    General CommentThe 3 chains are the holy trinity. It's about him dating a woman who tests his spirituality.

    General CommentI always thought the second verse was funny..... "This morning I wanted a cup of coffee/ But I didn't have any cream/ Last night I wanted some inspiration/ But I didn't have any dreams" That's hilarious!
