Prince ♥

(or view the video-clip on social media - LINK )

 What's wrong with the world today? 
Things just got to get better 
Show me what the leader's say 
Maybe we should write a letter

Said dear Mr. Man, we don't understand 
Why poor people keep struggling 
But you don't lend a helping hand 
Matthew 5:5 say, "The meek shall inherit the Earth" 
We gonna be down that way 
But you been trippin' since a day of your birth

Who said that to kill is a sin 
Then started every single war that your people been in? 
Who said that water is a precious commodity 
Then dropped a big, old, black oil slick in the deep blue sea?

Who told me, Mr. Man, that working round the clock 
Would buy me a big house in the hood, cigarette ads on every block? 
Who told me, Mr. Man, that I got a right to moan? 
How about this big old hole in the ozone? 

What's wrong with the world today? 
Things just got to get better 
Dear Mr. Man, we don't understand 
Maybe we should write a letter, yeah, so look

Listen, ain't no sense in voting, same song with a different name
Might not be in the back of the bus but it sure feel just the same
Ain't nothing fair about welfare, ain't no assistance in aids 
We ain't that affirmative about your actions till the people get paid

Your thousand years are up, now you gotta share the land 
Section 1, the 14th Amendment says 
"No state shall deprive any person of life 
Liberty or property, without due process of law" 
Mr. Man, we want to end this letter with three words 
We tired a-y'all

Tired, tired 
Said we're tired, we're tired 
Dear Mr. Man 
Hey, what's wrong, wrong with the present day? 
Man, just gotta get better 
Dear Mr. Man

I think the happiness on Dani's face during the solo on his father's piece, says it all..
(the solo starts, roughly at 3'20'' of this clip) 

Nelson, Prince Rogers

Some of these clips I saw posted by friends on social media, as they too start to react...


Yes, as many say - a soldier of Love
                                                        (and many other things, but they can all add up to ♥ Love)


  1. ... a thing about the colour Purple (whether one think's of Haze, Rain, Chagall's, EL Greco's.., or any other) it is the joining of the colours of blood in our veins, as it comes and goes.. So very Human...

    Wait, not just human......, of so many living beings that call our blue, spherical spaceship-bubble travelling the cosmos, Home.

    There is such a poetic balance when one thinks that the colour missing shines from that other travelling Mothership, that takes us and the other spinning spaceship-bubbles with it across the expanses of the Universe.. as we all wind about in our galaxy gardens.. (and some said Van Gogh painted the way he did, because he had astigmatism, or because he was slightly mad. No. He understood the movement, as did and do some others..) When we gaze for a while at a ball of Purple, close our eyes - remove it and look again, what do we see? Yes, it is the Sun. Our wonderful, beautiful star, it is one of the only ways to look at it without going blind)
