Da Da Da

This song is by Prince and appears on the album Emancipation (1996).

Da, da, da, da
Da, da, da, da, da
(Yeah y'all, it's like that y'all, it's like bet your life)
{Sample repeated in song}

Yeah
It's like rolling in a bronco pumpin them pumps
U know what I'm sayin'?
On broadway or somethin', u know what I'm sayin'?
Yo yo, straight up
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Hey yo, call the paddywagon, I've seen a black boy cash stackin
Smirk on my face screamin, fuck the grand dragon
4 the fast cash, we be thinkin' 2 slow
Clownin each others on the damn talk shows
I don't wanna house but I gotta stick and rob
I got a disease, its called can't find a job
Smokin' on the herbs help me see a little better
Lookin' 4 a job in this cold ass weather

Watch out, I'm tryin' 2 get my shit 2gether (da, da, da, da, da, da, da)
Yeah - da, da, da, da (da, da, da, da, da, da, da)
(Gotta keep it goin', gotta keep it goin')
It's been kinda lonely (da, da, da, da, da, da, da)
Da, da, da, da (da, da, da, da, da, da)
(Gotta keep it goin', gotta keep it goin')

Hey yo, as soon as I come home, I'm stressed by my mama
Questionin my whereabouts like I'm the unabomber
Question mark, comma, freeze all the drama
Intensive care flows 4 all you hos smacked with trauma
As I sit back with my blunt and gin
Grab a pen, write a song about a million black men
Tryin' 2 blame all this violence on gangs
What about those fools who kill 4 nothin' and hijack planes?
(Let me hear u...)

Get your shit 2gether (da, da, da, da, da, da, da)
Da, da, da, da (da, da, da, da, da, da, da)
(Gotta keep it goin', gotta keep it goin')
Da, da, da, da (da, da, da, da, da, da, da)
Da, da, da, da (da, da, da, da, da, da)
(Gotta keep it goin', gotta keep it goin')

Yo, I'm goin' 4 the gold like a olympic sprinter
Fuck the bullshit, steaks 4 dinner this winter
Yo, I've seen a murder scene that left a fool scarred
Plus I saw a prisonyard way before a schoolyard
Times rough plus times runnin' out
My mom said if I trip one more time, I'm gettin' kicked out
And I ain't tryin' 2 make excuses
But lookin' 4 a job in the ghetto is fuckin' useless (let me hear you sing)

Get your shit 2gether, straight up (da, da, da, da, da, da, da)
Yeah, uh - da, da, da, da (da, da, da, da, da, da, da)
(Let me hear you sing)
Da, da, da, da (da, da, da, da, da, da, da)
Da, da, da, da (da, da, da, da, da, da)

Ask yourself your destination
What the source of your inspiration be
And you will find a spirit tryin' 2 get back 2 the mind
How you was in your mamas belly
Live and let live was the order of the day
What you say?
Loving one another is the only way!

Da, da, da, da, da, da, da
If you believe in one thing, if you believe in 2 things
(Da, da, da, da, da, da, da)
If you believe in anything then let me hear you sing
Da, da, da, da, da, da, da
Keep on believin (da, da, da, da, da, da)
Lord

(Yeah y'all, it's like that y'all, it's like bet your life)
(Yeah y'all)
(Come on)
(Yeah y'all) {x2}
(It's like bet your life)
(Yeah y'all, it's like bet your life) {x3}
(Yeah)
