Though not really profound, Joy In Repetition is one of P's finest hours as far as wordsmithtitude goes.

He like to frequent this club down up on 36th
Pimps and thangs like 2 hang outside and cuss for kicks

Talking 2 no one in particular, they say 'the baddest I am tonight'
4 letter words are seldom heard with such dignity and bite.
All the poets and the part time singers always hang inside
live music from a band plays a song called 'Soul Psychodelicide'.
The song's a year long and had been playing 4 months when he
walked into the place.
No one seemed to care, an introverted this-is-it look on most of their faces.
Up on the mic repeating 2 words, over and over again
was this woman he had never noticed before he lost himself in the
articulated manner in which she said them.
These 2 words, a little bit behind the beat.
I mean just enough 2 turn u on.
4 everytime she said the words another one of his doubts were gone.

Should he try 2 rap with her? Should he stand and stare?
No one else was watching her, she didn't seem 2 care.
So over and over, she said the words til he could take no more, (no more)
he dragged her from the stage and together they ran through the back door
In the alley over by the curb he said tell me what's your name
she only said the words again and it started to rain (rain, rain, rain)
2 words falling between the drops and the moans of his condition
holding someone is truly believing there's joy in repetition.
There's joy in repetition.
There's joy in repetition.
There's joy in repetition.
There's joy in repetition.
She said love me, love me, what she say?
she say love me, love me.
Joy, why don't u love me baby, joy, why can't u love me baby
joy, come on and love me baby, joy in repetition
Alright, joy in repetition,
Alright, joy in repetition,
Alright, joy in repetition,
Alright, joy, all my wishes add up to one
Love me, joy, Love me, joy, Love me, joy
Love me, Love me, joy, joy, joy in repetition
joy, joy in repetition,
joy, joy (love me) in repetition,
Love me, love, joy, joy, joy in repetition
joy, and I'm gonna say it again, joy, joy, and I'm gonna say it again,
joy, I'd like 2 go way up high and say, Love me, joy
I'll say Love me, joy
Joy, joy in repetition, joy in repetition
There's joy in repetition

Thes lyrics are alittle profound if u ask me...

Lana drew a picture in school 2day
One that made her mother cry
A picture of a woman with a drink in her hand
Standing by a child with no eyes
Washington reaction based upon revenge
Babies blown 2 kingdom come
Damn the logic
Cartoon characters look better when they're on the run
Danny dropped the dime on his girlfriend
He said he didn't wanna go 2 jail alone
The seed lives in the same mind
With the thought that says we all should be stoned
And people lookin' 4 angels in the sky
Whenever they're broken-hearted
Love is grown, seeds are sown
A fire don't burn unless it's started

Did U ever feel that life was like lookin' 4 a penny
In a large room with no light?
A sophisticated man reduced 2 company in no-win situations
That aren't right

Everytime U wake up there's a little motherfucker
Talkin' big stuff in your face (Are U happy?)
U only get the kind of people that open their mouth just 2 swap feet
Welcome 2 the rat race

Did U ever feel that life was like lookin' 4 a penny
In a large room with no light?
A sophisticated man reduced 2 company in no-win situations
That aren't right

Oh, if U could just pass your history class
Maybe life would be alright
Until then U'll be lookin' 4 a penny
In a large room with no light

Yeah!
it dont mean Ure wrecked jus cause me tallywackin sucking is all U want. all it means is that the one that come b4 me never made U come.

Ghettoes to the left of us, Flowers to the right. There'll be bread for all y'all
From the Cross on s.o.t.

So what if we are controlling all the oil, is it worth a child dying for (is it worth it?), Long life life is what we all live 4, and long life will come 2 pass, anything s better than seeing a picture of that child in a cloud of gas.

Totally agree ... lyrically incredible.

Often wordered though, is this line playing FOR months, or playing FOUR months. Both work equally well. I think it's supposed to be four, but I prefer for.

I know P has put out some truly great lyrics in his time but this early bit of wisdom always comes to my mind:

"Don't let your children watch television until they know how to read Or else all they'll know how to do is cuss, fight and breed
No child is bad from the beginning... they only imitate their atmosphere."

I kinda like the lyrics to "The Love We Make" and "The Last December" -- sound profound to me.

Not sure that Prince does profound lyrics that much. But my favourite lyrics of his are the first line to Little Red Corvette, the first line to Sign O The Times, the first line to Moonbeam levels...

in fact, i guess i'm a big fan of first lines.

I also like the snowflake / avalanche metaphor he uses in avalanche.

And the whole of Old friends 4 sale (not the terrible lyrics used in the 'The Vault' release of course. smile )

Prince always had some very profond lines.
I think this has to do with is deep spirituality.
For example:
"Move your big ass round this way,
So I can play with that zipper baby!"

When you think about it, most of his lyrics are profound sexually or socially, hes got so many things to say and so little time to say it. Why not the songs without deep lyrics, I can think of one.

Sexy Dancer and it still sounds great, its in my all time Top 10
This lyric ain't that profound

Sexy Dancer you got my body screamin, Sexy Dancer you got me just a creamin

U will be moved when the whip comes down on the back of one of your own
U will be moved when U look 4 compassion but U find U're all alone
Moved, and U will be when U are, that's when U'll know
That the bread U share is better than the blood that your deeds have caused 2 flow
