Y Should I Do That When I Can Do This

This song is by Prince.

Let's play a game called "U agree"
'Cause nothin' was created in disagreement, see
And if I didn't try 2 school U, I'd be remissed
U know what?
Y should I do that when I can do this?

(Do this)
(Boom shakalakala boom)
This drummer wicked
(Do this)

U were just conceived on a Friday night
I was on stage wasting brothers in a real fight
Everytime they copped my space down I worked it harder
Stripped down 2 my underwear and spanked them like they father
Never before had people seen a vision so bizarre
Play a hand that's equal 2 mine
Uh, look at my cards I heard your little groove and I raised you another
On a Sunday morning would you play that smack 4 your mother?
Huh, I believe you would think otherwise
A few CDs from now when the software that U're banging's not alive
In a real battle those loops y'all got suffer TKO's
Until U're playing in front of 70,000 U'll never know, nigga
This a grown folks job
All the young dogs need 2 recognize
If the world was God, the people need 2 use it with a 3rd eye
Who? What? Why? Uh, lookout

And if I didn't try 2 school U I would be remissed
Y should I do that when I can do this?

(If a nigga never stylin', who would I diss?)
Y should I do that when I can do this?
(Boom shakalakala boom)
This drummer wicked
Y should I do that when I can do this?
This drummer wicked
Y should I do that when I can do this?

Everytime I turn around there's another boot
Talking about what another boot can't do
Quiet as it's kept, everyone of you boots need 2 try 2 walk a mile in my shoes

I've had devils (out) try 2 take me out but I stand 4 the truth
So my words makes mo' dollars than sense on your hellavision or your radio
With this flow it just grows
Yo, ask Chuck D. - he know
He's been fightin' the "so called power" since the days of old
So tell me now what should be sold?
Sleepy Jack hazards y'all need a couple of No-doze (Ooh)
Ask Mary J. about Chaka
Mary, is Chaka on the radio? (No)
Huh, see you gotta save your own
In the end it ain't about the dollars but the seeds U've sewn
In a mind state full of Dutch ELM that's where the ghetto's grown (Oh)
Watch out y'all can't block me out 2night

If I didn't try 2 school you I'd be remissed
Y should I do that when I can do this? (Hey yeah)
(Do this)
(If a nigga never stylin', who would I diss?)
Y should I do that when I can do this
(Boom shakalakala boom)
This drummer wicked
Y should I do that when I can do this?

Uh, a drummer in a cold sweat, backin' up my rhyme
I'd make you take your shortie outta here (Everytime)
Calling me fine
I got a big stick, one 4 each hand
Everybody know I keep a tight band, come on
Uh

My brothers in Manhattan say, "Got 2 shut these haters down G."
He say, "Dog I got yo' back but you gotta, U gotta make a sound" (Make a sound)
Like we used 2, "Well you might be pissed
'Cause y would I do that when I can do this?"

2 most I'm known as a lover, 2 others I'm just a pain (Say what?)
The latter's opinion usually form when mediocrity reigns
And if I didn't school ya, U know what? (What?)
I would be remissed
Yo, y would I do that y'all, (haha) Londell, when I can do this?
(Y should I do that when I can do this?)
Y would I do that y'all, Ananda, when I can do this? (Backup)
(Y should I do that when I can do this)
Y would I do that y'all, Doug E., when I can do this?
Y would I do that y'all, Spike, when I could do this?
(Y should I do that when I can do this?)
Y would I do that y'all, NPG? We can do this, we can do this
Boom!
