Let's Go Crazy (background talk) What is Prince saying??

In the Purple Rain movie.....right after he bangs on the piano and bedore Applelonia looks in the mirror Prince is saying something very faintly in the background. I noticed it last night when watching the movie. Any ideas what he is saying?

He is saying "Dearly beloved, we are gathered..." etc, again. It took me a few listens back then to realize it. But he's basically repeating the beginning lyric of the song.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

He is delivering the "Dearly Beloved..." phrase but in a far more monotone and non punctated manner. Also, at the end he changes the line to "But I'm here to tell ya, there's something else...THE REVOLUTION" which has a robotic effect placed on to it.
