Avalanche Lyrics

Artist: Prince
Album: One Nite Alone

He was not or never had been in favor
of setting r people free
if it wasn't 4 the 13th Amendment
we woulda been born in slavery
He was not or never had been in favor
of letting us vote so u c...
Abraham Lincoln was a racist who said
"U cannot escape from history"

CHORUS
Like the snow comin' down the mountain
that landed on Wounded Knee
nobody wants 2 take the weight-
the responsibility

Hear the joyous sound of freedom
The Harlem Renaissance
Hear Duke Ellington and his band
kick another jungle jam
Ooh, do u wanna dance?
Who's that lurking in the shadows?
Mr. John Hammond with his pen in hand...
sayin' "Sign ur kingdom over 2 me
and b known throughout the land!"
But, u ain't got no money, U ain't got no cash,
So u sign yo name and he claims innocence
just like every snowflake in an avalanche...

CHORUS
Like the snow comin' down the mountain
that landed on Wounded Knee
nobody wants 2 take the weight-
the responsability

Possibly the best Prince song ever. This song fits very well next 2 When Will We B Paid.

Yes, the best Prince's song. Very soul moving & cleverly written. I love it.
But how can we listen to it on Internet, I could'nt find out if it was possible or not. Can you tell us the way?

One of the best songs I"ve heard, but can we LISTEN to it on internet?
Music is great, words are great...

Prince is being racist towards white people in this song, and it kinda makes me want to kick his little black ass.
