The Lyrics

Another pop singer with a massive ego taken down by one of the main two reasons (Drug OD or AIDS) folks of that sort die. Prince was a pretty decent guitarist but his talent was wasted making the pop drivel that made him famous. Robby Zimmie - Bob Dylan
My Name Was Prince

(Sung to 'My Name is Prince' by Prince)

I wanna drop more perc-e's
'cause my life is rather quirky
I wanna snort more cocaine
to stoke that fire in my brain...

My name was Prince and I was funky!
Until I gakked up vomit chunky!
I lost a dance with my addiction
Yes my addiction it sort of sunk me!

My name was Prince; I had some meds...
but I pulled a Michael Jackson and now I'm dead!
I have chain mail
across my face....
it might be my legacy to the human race!

I tried to live the good life
But I busted flat
My music was insipid
Imagine that!

My name was Prince and I was funky
Until I gakked up vomit chunky!
Hurt me

Wait, I am not trending
on fan's money depending
Unless I look like somebody
I will be Prince the nobody

I got an idea for fame!
I'll use a stupid symbol
in place of my name!
I know that I have no shame..

My name was The Artist and I was feudin'
with a record company what were they doin'!
This really ain't funny, they want more money!
Gimme some more fentanyl to make things sunny!!

I guess my life went... rather fast!
before the fentanyl really kicked my ass!
I found more cocaine.. now I say gimme..
Now i feel more famous than Robby Zimmie!

I at least had a sister
to tell me I'm great
but da shit ain't over
My estate's intestate...

My name was Prince and I was funky
but codeine and coke really knocked me...
On my Back

Help me, help me, somebody
DNA issues are muddy...
I hit that here , I hit that there
There now could be kids everywhere...

My name was Prince, I didn't wrap my thing!
I'm another celebrity dingaling!!
Estate intestate.. now the ingrates
are after some of my three twenty estate!

I don't know... if that really is him!
a son of mine may be doing time in prison!
I don't keep track of who I do!!
Hell, I might just be the father of.. you!

My name was Prince and I was funky
My name was Prince, my ego owned me!
Chain mail face mask, so what of it?
I'm a rich asshole so you can shove it!

I won't leave this song
I can't leave this song
I won't leave this, leave this, sing along!

My name was Prince and sort of hunky
My name was Prince, dead men aren't funky
Funky dead with life behind me

Play on, play on, somebody
Past comatose, I was somebody
An overdose, most likely
Dead and cold not funky

The vapider I be, the more wacko I get, oh shit
Lickety split on the lyrics, but brain rot the pulpit
Watch; I'm speakin', my brain is leakin'
What is this you're seekin'?
Common sense escapes celebrities dense...

When they jumped on my music wagon
Warner Bros. did a lot of ass draggin'!
They wouldn't release me... fast enough!!
So my name became a symbol and that's tough!
My ego is too large
I am the modern day LeBarge and I will overcharge...

But now they have... Autotune!!!!
You can synth an album in an afternoon!!
My wasted talent I really dropped it...
I should've played rock instead of pop shit!!!

Do that, make that somebody
Do that, make that somebody

I am a pop star but surely ig-ig-ignorant
Tha drugs they killed ma and they got me on this rant!
I am a GOD... so out of sight...
No.. you are another parody on Am I Right!

Vomit tossing...Body convulsing
maybe I'll come back as a mob boss; sing
my praises higher! Will they later on
call me a liar!

Like any other man singing in a band
I will perish without my fans....
Selling more CDs is the point of it...
(Along with doing weird assed shit!)

Vanity blames me
Apollonia shames me

I flew so high but then the drug induced prostration
Rendered me into human Ken-L-Ration!
Burnt up crispy in a crematorium!
(On Autotune crap.. a moratorium?)

12 inches of crap CD!
But that's the sort of music that made me!
So play that, buy that somebody
Wave your money in the air
Man i love to see that there!

While I'm dead on by back my kids are fighting!!
over my money made
Toss my ashes in a glade
As my progeny shreds me over the money
And I'm out....

My name was Prince and I was funky
And then I had a case of vomit chunky

My name was Prince
My name was Prince
My name was Prince
My name was Prince

My name was Prince
My name was Prince
My name was Prince
My name was Prince

My name was Prince
My name was Prince
