"Eye No" as written by and Prince Rogers Nelson....
Rain is wet, and sugar is sweet
Clap your hands, and stomp your feet
Everybody, everybody knows
When love calls, you gotta go

Welcome 2 the new power generation
The reason my voice is so clear
Is there's no smack in my brain

I know there is a heaven, I know there is a hell
Listen 2 me people, I got a story to tell
I know there was confusion lightnin' all around me
That's when I called his name don't you know he found me

No! Is what spooky electric say, it's not ok
But I know love is the only way till my dying day
No til my dying day I'll be ok
Cuz lovesexy is the one til my day is done

I know there is a devil because he talks so loud
He makes you do things that your friends do, hang out with the crowd
But my lord he is so quiet when he calls your name
When you hear it your heart will thunder
You will want 2 hear it every day

No! (people) is what spooky electric say (everbody say)
But don't you know that I know
Love is the only way, til my dying day
No til my dying day I'll be ok
Cuz lovesexy is the one til my day is done

Alright y'all, everybody in the house (serve it up, frankie)
Here's what I want you 2 do
Raise your hand up, straight in the air
Swing it 2 the right, savoir faire
Up on the 2, swing on the 4
Everybody on the dancefloor

Sha-ho, sha-ho, sha-ho, sha-ho

Y'all ain't got it together
Go ahead, go ahead, go ahead

Raise your hand up, straight in the air

(Let's get it up, let's get it up)


Say no
(Say no) no if you can't find your way everybody say
(Say no) no if you're afraid, everybody ain't got it made
(Say no) if you want a drug other than the god above
No if you need a drink every single day
Blow that devil away!

Say yes
Yes if you want this feeling called love
(Come on 'ya, say)
Yes if you want it now raise your hand 2 the man above
(Yes) up on the 2, swing right on the 4
We want everybody 2 open this door!

Say no if you don't wanna live life under the gun
(I know) we know a better way 2 have some fun
(I know) I know there is a heaven and a hell
I know there is a heaven and a hell

    General CommentThis is when Prince *really* started using the symbols in place of words, hence the "eye"s for the I's, etc. Great song about God and self-awareness, but also very danceable.
