Lyric question "The Latest Fashion" (anyone have the music book?)

"The Latest Fashion" has a rap by Prince. All the lyrics I have seen on line have it as follows:

"All in all I'm still the king and all y'all the court
If you thinking about ruling me ya better get abortions, yes!"


I do not think that "thinking" is correct. I think the word is "Pregnant." Which goes better with "abortions."


When I first had the tape I assumed it was "thinking" but then I saw the sheet music book in a store and I read it and I swear it had the word "abortions" and not "thinking."

So what do you all think?


Dose anyone have the sheet music book?

With Love, Honor & Respect for all of you...no matter how I argue or disagree my heart is full of love for you all...

Here's what I came up with when I used Bing:

Everybody want to tell me how to play the game
When I run it better than a madame runs dames
Trying to beat me like playing pool with a rope
My funk will leave ya dead cause it's good and plenty dope
All in all I'm still the king and all y'all the court
If you thinking about ruling me ya better get abortions, yes
It's jacked, cause I'm back, and I'm harder than a heart attack
And I'm the cure for any disease cause there ain't nobody funky like me

Thank you kingricefan. I am saying most if not all of the lyrics online are wrong.

and this would not be the first time! Most of the lyrics of "Screams of Passion" are also wrong.


many also get the lyrics to "let's go crazy" wrong as well.

^ This is largely a correct transcription - but (from the sheet music book, as requested), the line is:

"If U pregnant about ruling me U better get abortions, yes"

ALT+PLS+RTN: Pure as a pane of ice. It's a gift.
