Thank u just the same - Yahoo prerecorded award song

I don't know why I win awards I can't lie I only know two chords....??

Did prince make this joke song once for an awards win or am I making it up,

If yes, which one? I feel like it was to the tune of my medallion....

Should anyone search for this in years to come, this is the correct transcription..

'Thank u just the same' / to the tune of 'My Medallion' ..

Pre recorded Yahoo acceptance speech, turn of the millennium

I don't know why I win awards
I can't lie. I only know 2 chords
I don't know, but I'm overjoyed
Just get signed. Still unemployed.
Thank U just the same
