LYRICS STUDY - PRINCE: NEW POWER GENERATION!

in steemit •  5 months ago

** This song makes me think about the Steem network today.
I just want to say thanks, and hang in there, we will have our day around here!

SY- **


Lay down your funky weapon.
Yeah y'all, here we go
Pumpin' the big noise in the 90's!

Pardon me for living,
but this is my world too.

I can't help that what's cool to us, might be strange to you...

Pardon me for breathing,
can we borrow some of your air?

The problem with you and your kind is that you don't know love is there


(CHORUS! SING!)
Lay down your funky weapon, come join us on the floor
Making love and music's the only things worth fighting for
We are the new power generation, we want to change the world.
The only thing that's in our way is you.

Your old fashioned music, your old ideas,
We're sick and tired of you telling us what to do.

Pardon me for thinking, but there's something under my hair
I bet you thought the lights were on but no one's living there
You think that if you tell enough lies they will see the truth?

I hope they bury your old ideas the same time they bury you

(CHORUS)

Pardon us for caring,
we didn't know it was against the rules (shout it out!)

If we only want to love one another
Then tell me now who's the fool (tell me, tell me)

No father, no mother, no sister, no brother, nobody can make me stop

Said if you didn't come to party child, I think you better get up off of my block!

(CHORUS)

Why don't you just be happy, baby?!

(CHORUS)

Go on and get up off of my block
Get up off of my block, because
Love is there if you'd just open up to it.

If you'd just believe your whole world would change!

New power generation, you've got to rearrange. We've got
We are the new power generation, you've gotta give up all the fight



We gotta try to love one another, baby!
We are the NEW POWER GENERATION.

Everyday I wake I think about steemit. Steemit has made a significant transformation and improvements in my singing skill. Each day I do my best activity which is singing and each time I remember steemit and smile.

Well if you’re a lover of music judging from the post, I’d be honored to have you listen to my songs I’ve made since I joined steemit six months ago,only if you don’t mind.
Hanging in here , looking forward to good days ahead

Steemit is all I think about these days.
I used to wake up with Facebook and Instagram on my iPhone but these days I even wake up in the middle of the night and open steemit and start surfing.
Steemit has helped me in building relationships with some of the lovely people in the world.
Steemit has transformed my world.
@surfyogi I remember at the start of my steemit journey, I received a $12 upvote from you and that encouraged me to steem on.
Great lyrics though.

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....

Great idea to show this for us,thanks a lot @surfyogi sir.

The best video i have seen in recent times,thanks a lot sir for sharing.

Awesome lyrics sir yes this is the power of next generation.

Wow i loved it sir as i went into many emotions great work from the crew.

This is so powerful and full of positivity great choice there :D
