Its Gonna be a beautiful night- say what?

Whats this from?
Said the table 2 the chair
"You can hardly be aware
How I suffer from the heat
And from chillblains on my feet!
If we took a little walk
We might have a little talk!
Pray let us take the air!"
Said the table to the chair (can't nobody)

Said the chair to the table
"Now you know we are not able! (fuck with us)
How foolishly you talk
When you know we cannot walk!" (can't nobody)
Said the table with a sigh
"It can do no harm to try (fuck with us)
I've as many legs as you
Why can't we walk on two?" (say, can't nobody)

So they both went showly down (fuck with us)
And walked about the town
With a cheerful bumpy sound (can't nobody)
As they toddled round and round
And everybody cried
As they hastened to their side (fuck with us)
"See the table and the chair
Have come 2 take the air!" (y'all - say it y'all)

But in going down an alley
To a castle in the valley
They completely lost their way
And wandered all the day
Till, to see them safely back
They paid a ducky-quack
And a beetle and a mouse
Who took them to their house

When they whispered to each other
"O delightful little brother! (can't nobody fuck with us)
What a lovely walk we've taken!
Let us dine on beans and bacon!"
So the ducky and the little browny- (say it, y'all)
mousey and the beetle dined,
And danced upon the heads
Till they toddled to their beds (can't nobody fuck with us)
Good God [repeated in the background]


I'm just listening to It's gonna be a beautiful night, because my friend likes prince but only owns 3 albums, sign o'the times is one.

I realised, I take alot of things for granted on tracks, and these are rather odd lyrics, if indeed they are that and not a quote.

sexy rap by sheila all the same

does it really say "fuck"?

i always thought they were saying "funk".
Fuck the funk - it's time to ditch the worn-out Vegas horns fills, pick up the geee-tar and finally ROCK THE MUTHA-FUCKER!! He hinted at this on Chaos, now it's time to step up and fully DELIVER!!

lol, have you ever heard erotic city???


"We can fuck until the dawn, making love ’til cherry’s gone
Erotic city can’t u see, fuck pretty u and me"

in some songs he says 'fuck', but it sounds like 'funk' so it gets aired. so in other words there is interchangability of the words ’fuck’ & ’funk’ in this song. i guess they would be either so its up to the listener,

"18 and over, i wants to phone ya" no, more like "bone ya"

Ok in the movie when Sheila and Cat were doing a little dance together and Prince was playing drums, was the crowd chanting "H-O she's a HO"?

It was called the transmississippi rap because it was recorded cross-country, over the phone.
