I could tell by the color of Ur energy field
U thought this game was over chemical peel [chemic appeal?]
U try 2 do me like my good brother Steve
But I got another funky trick up my sleeve
Expecting me 2 freak on U a little bit more
But U get nothin’ but well-wishers and flowers galore!
I mean no harm, I still got Ur back
U can come and drink my wine, as a matter of fact

Just Feel Better (Feel Better) , Feel Good, (Feel Good) (hey!), Feel Wonderful!
Feel Better (Feel Better) , Feel Good, (Feel Good), Feel Wonderful!

I don’t know what U thought when U spit in my face
But this dimension ain’t not the time or the place
I don’t know who told U U could stand next `2 me
But I got a guitar that could part a sea
Don’t mean no disrespect I aint tryin’ 2 brag
But it might be the same 1 that tapped on the crack
And it brought forth water that quenched Ur thirst
And we’ll keep feeding ya, but first things first!

Feel Better (Feel Better) , Feel Good, (Feel Good), Feel….

I've been listening 2 it over and over - I love it the way it is raw and funky. I really hope Prince doesn't change anything about it. It's hard, I've missed that.

Here's what I hear him singing, r versions r very close 2 one another:


Hey - I could tell by the color of Ur energy field
U thought this game was of a *chemic *appeal

U tried 2 do me like my good brother Steve
But I got another funky trick up my sleeve

Expecting me 2 freak on U a little bit more,
U get nothin’ but well-wishes and flowers galore.

I mean no harm, I still got Ur back
U can come and drink my wine as a matter of fact…

Just Feel Better (Feel Better), Feel Good, (Feel Good, hey!), Feel Wonderful!
Feel Better (Feel Better), Feel Good, (Feel Good), Feel Wonderful!

I don’t know what U thought when U spit in my face
But this dimension ain’t the time or the place

I don’t know who told U could stand next 2 me
But I got a guitar that could part the sea

Don’t mean no disrespect, I aint tryin’ 2 brag
But *that* might be the same one that tapped on the crack…

And it brought forth water that quenched Ur thirst
and we’ll keep feeding ya, but first things first…

Feel Better (Feel Better), Feel Good, (Feel Good), Feel….


(*chemic - adjective: relating to chemistry; *appeal - noun: The power of attracting or of arousing interest, *that* - as in his foot; Step on a crack, break your Momma’s Back, etc.)

Hmmm, looking at the lyrics, it looks like this could have been written as a message to the NPGMC members. I mean really read the lyrics, and take into consideration about the club closing.

I could tell by the color of Ur energy field
U thought this game was over chemical peel[


Thinking the club is gone for good. He was saying he knew people's emotions were going to be all over the place.

U try 2 do me like my good brother Steve
But I got another funky trick up my sleeve


Not sure what the reference is to "my good brother Steve", but he's got something else planned.

Expecting me 2 freak on U a little bit more
But U get nothin’ but well-wishes and flowers galore!


Freak as in "freaks on this side" perhaps, perhaps meaning that everyone was wanting more music, more tours, more shows, but Prince be taking a break and wishes everyone well and flowers galore

I mean no harm, I still got Ur back
U can come and drink my wine, as a matter of fact


Prince is still going to be Prince, still going to do music, and he doesn't want the close of the club to hurt ya. In fact, he just gave an invitation to come to the 3121 club in Vegas while he's running the joint and drink his wine.

I don’t know what U thought when U spit in my face
But this dimension ain’t not the time or the place


This is for all the naysayers spittin' in his face, and the club isn't the place to be doing it, nor is it the time to be doing since the club was going to be closing.

I don’t know who told U U could stand next `2 me
But I got a guitar that could part a sea


People thinking they can get all up in Prince's business, but he's still a star

Don’t mean no disrespect I aint tryin’ 2 brag
But it might be the same 1 that tapped on the crack (crag ~ since the reference above is a Moses reference)


Basically saying that the music he plays might be the one to overwhelm you emotionally.

And it brought forth water that quenched Ur thirst
And we’ll keep feeding ya, but first things first


Basically saying his music sustained you for awhile, and that he plans on it continuing to sustain you, but right now there are other things going on that need some taking care of, and so he just wants you to "feel better, feel good, feel wonderful" until he decides to feed you with that guitar again.

Just my take on the song now in light of recent events.

if any of you are right about these lyrics and them being at all self-descriptive
then Prince would be gettin just a tad too close to callin himself godlike IMO

I don’t know who told U U could stand next `2 me
But I got a guitar that could part a sea


well... no actually you don't.
and
anybody who has the $$$$ can stand next to you little fella
lol
Frank Zappa was the greatest American composer of the last 50 years, the greatest electric guitarist to have ever played that instrument, and his music will be performed live long after Purple Rain will have been forgotten.

Well, he's basically put himself alongside god on a few occasions, so nothing new:

My Name Is Prince:
In the beginning God made the sea
But on the 7th day he made me
He was tryin' to rest y'all when He heard the sound
Sound like a guitar cold gettin' down
I tried to bust a high note, but I bust a string
My God was worried 'til he heard me sing


S&M Groove:
Speaking of which, my rags are game
When I see the maker, He asks my tailor's name

LittleRedCorvette, I appreciate your attempts to decipher the lyrics but I don't agree with your conclusions, I think it is reaching too far to try and make a connection with recent events. I really don't see what 'chemical peel' has to do with the club, nor has anyone explained what 'chemical peel' is and it's context in the song (other than my offered interpretation!) or getting from 'freak' to 'freaks on this side' to Prince wanting a break.

Also you can't tap on a crack. Just like you can't tap on a hole. You can tap on the edges of a hole, and the edges of a crack, not the crack itself, since it's, well, empty space between things.

- I think it´s one of the reasons that it´s so hard to see people covering Prince´s recent stuff...his music is sooo personal that sometimes it only sounds good if performed by him. I cant imagine nobody playing ´Everlasting Now´ as well as him. And lyric-wise, he loves to make self-indulgent lyrics like ´Undisputed´...it´s hard for people to relate to that...

eek I heard the demo but now no one can hear it so so sad neutral
I have in one hand a bucket of water and a torch in the other, with these I will set heaven on fire and put out the flames in hell so that no one will worship god in fear of not going to heaven or ending up in hell.
