PRINCE: POSITIVITY - LoveSexy Album - Lyrics Study

in music •  2 months ago


Positivity, yes
Have you had your plus sign today?
Positivity, yes
Do we mark you present or do we mark you late?

Is that a good man?
Walking down the street
With that money in his hand
Is that a good man?

Why do you dog him?
If that was your father
Tell me, would you dog him then
Would you dog him?

Positivity, yes
Have you had your plus sign today?
Positivity, yes
Do we mark you present or do we mark you late?

Is that all your gold?
Where did it come from? What did you have to do?
(Did you have to do?)
Can you sleep nights?
Do you dream straight up or do you dream in W's?

Positivity, yes
Have you had your plus sign today?
Positivity, yes, yeah
Do we mark you present or do we mark you late?

Na, na, na, na, na, na, so slow
Positivity, yes

Can a boy who drops out at school
At thirteen years of age
Answer the Q of life and death
When it slaps him in the face?
Na, na, na, na, na, na, so slow

Who's to blame when he's got no place to go
And all he's got is the sense to know
That a life of crime'll help him beat you in the race
Help him beat you in the race, positivity

Positivity, yes
Have you had your plus sign today?
Positivity, yes
Do we mark you present or do we mark you late?

Oh, oh, positivity, yes
(Well, see it)
Have you had your plus sign today?
Positivity, yes
(Yes, ahh, hah )
Do we mark you present or do we mark you late?

Positivity, yes
Na, na, na, na, na, na, so slow

Wave your hands for positivity, y'all
All the boys and all the girls
(All the boys and all the girls)
You are the new kings of the world
Shall the court sing together

In every man's life there will be a hang-up
A whirlwind designed to slow you down
It cuts like a knife and tries to get in you

This spooky electric sound
Give up if you want to and all is lost
Spooky Electric will be your boss

Call People magazine, Rolling Stone
Call your next of kin 'cuz your ass is gone
He's got a 57 mag with the price tag
Still on the side, ah

Cuzzin' when Spooky say dead, you better say died
Or you can fly high right by Spooky
And all that he crawls for
Spooky and all that he crawls for

Don't kiss the beast
Love and honesty, peace and harmony, positivity
Love and honesty, peace and harmony
I said, hold on to your soul, you got a long way yo go

Sho' nuff, don't, no, sho' nuff

Don't kiss the beast
Be superior at least

Hold on to your soul, y'all, court, sing
Hold on to your soul
We got a long way to go
Hold on to your soul

I love the message. Beautiful song!

I really wanted you to hear it Legri.
@leggy23

I really love this song...

Of course, he is a master, his music makes many of us change our day, definitely the music is a fuel and the best thing is that it unites the world.

Positivity is a song of 1988 and Prince really did a great one here. The song is the ninth and final song on his tenth album lovesexy
His a great singer..
Have you listened to Glam Slam and Lovesexy by him??

·

You gotta realize I grew up with Prince on the CD player at all times.. and I was subscriber to his Music Club, and I went to his concerts. I spent a lot of time with him in the room ;-)
I am keeper of the VAULT.

·
·

wow!!!
That's great to know..
I love his musics..

Great beat and well compose music i enjoyed every bit of the song, you just gave me new energy with this song to continue my work in the office @surfyogi, Am gonna play it for my baby. Thanks boss do have a nice at work

·

That's cool mon!
Play it for the baby, and dance around!
Nice to take a break, and be with the Master.

Wow, you know, it's actually true

Anybody can play, few listen.

I've been trying to learn the guitar for long and I'm not making any headway....
I think I'll have to give in more time and dedication like you said.....20 minutes a day.

By the way, that guy is really cool.
I hope one day I'll be able to play like him

·

Prince was such a master guitarist. You can learn most of what you need to know, if you can play like him, exactly, note for note.
So I always played along with records, to learn how to sound like my favorite playas..
Sound like the pros, and your a pro!

Beautiful lyrics @surfyogi. If I must say. Had to go through the lines. And these particular got my attention. Cause, behind every music or lyrics lies a message.

Can a boy who drops out at school
At thirteen years of age
Answer the Q of life and death
When it slaps him in the face?
Na, na, na, na, na, na, so slow

These, actually depends on how the little boys sees it. If actually, it has or has not happened to some one close to him. But such can leave him in a state of total dilemma

·

It's very Dramatic, but gets the point across.

I love the Gospel Choir at the end.

·
·

Yes, sir @surfyogi. The gospel choir, does have a way of uplifting the soul and spirit when it's down.

Prince!!!! Giving me that 80s vibe!

Because that would be too easy and we would loose some of the raw motivation to LIVE.

Great way to start the day on a bright positive mood thanks for sharing that : )

Never knew you're this good, if i may ask, have you wax an album before , this is my first time of meeting though i've heard about you for awhile now. I love the song.

Congratulations @surfyogi Sir...Music is a kind of audible art that can create entertainment in the mind of the heart with consistent sound and nuance. The creation of music in the form of voice and sound. This sound may be the sound of human voices, the sounds of the instruments, or the combination of both....

Magical work from you sir,thanks a lot for sharing.

I only watched to check out the two black girls in the background. Otherwise its the same performance he's been doing for years now, right down to the songs. He really should come up with some new material. Bring a band with him or pair up with another musician at the show. Something.

He is a grasp, his track makes many of us alternate our day, without a doubt the tune is a gas and the exceptional issue is that it unites the world. Thanks for sharing with us
