Lyrics To Prince’s “Baltimore”, To Be Released Exclusively On Tidal In Act Of Baffling Stupidity

150430231929-prince-baltimore-artwort-exlarge-169

Let’s say you record a protest song like Neil Young’s “Ohio” in 1970, a response to the murder of four college students “The record was mastered with the participation of the four principals, rush-released by Atlantic and heard on the radio with only a few weeks’ delay.’

IN NINETEEN SEVENTY!

In 2015, when, if Prince chose to, he could write, record and release a song in an hour, we are still waiting for his response to the civil unrest in Baltimore. And when we get it, he is releasing the song via Tidal to absolutely insure that 99.9% of the people who hear his great moment of protest HAVE TO STEAL IT.

What a fucking idiot. What a twit. Damn, this guy gets on my tits.

There is also a concert in Baltimore  .. .that  at least should be good.

But will it make up for his crass money grubbing stupidity???  What is Prince problem? What is he thinking? Who on earth sits on a pulled from todays papers protest song for a week and then releases it on Tidal? Surely,he should be giving it away as a free download for anything who cares, I mean, isn’t he doing it to share his opinion?

Here is the lyric:
NOBODY GOT IN NOBODY’S WAY
SO EYE GUESS U COULD SAY
IT WAS A GOOD DAY
AT LEAST A LITTLE BETTER THAN THE DAY IN BALTIMORE

DOES ANYBODY HEAR US PRAY?
4 MICHAEL BROWN OR FREDDIE GRAY PEACE IS MORE THAN THE ABSENCE OF WAR
ABSENCE OF WAR

R WE GONNA C ANOTHER BLOODY DAY?
WE’RE TIRED OF CRYIN’ & PEOPLE DYIN’
LET’S TAKE ALL THE GUNS AWAY

ABSENCE OF WAR- U AND ME
MAYBE WE CAN FINALLY SAY
ENUFF IS ENUFF IT’S TIME 4 LOVE

IT’S TIME 2 HEAR,
IT’S TIME 2 HEAR

THE GUITAR PLAY! (guitar solo)

Wow, that really fucking  sucks. Not all of it, the first verse is excellent, but the rest of it stinks.

Here is an all too typical Prince interview.

The gig is this Sunday, wear something gray it says, like Prince’s hair if he wasn’t dyeing it.
