Prince's Vikings song will move the nation

| 15 Comments | No TrackBacks


Um, above is reportedly a song that Prince penned to serve as the Minnesota Vikings' fight song.

The Minneapolis resident, who was on hand for Sunday's purple-and-gold thrashing of the Dallas Cowboys, said he hadn't been to the Metrodome for a game in ages.

Something weird happened after the diminutive one's visit.

It is Prince, after all.

"I saw the future, he said.

There you have it. In the future, music will sound like this.
Here are the lyrics to this masterpiece:

the veil of the sky draws open
the roar of the chariots touch down
we r the ones who have now come again
and walk upon water like solid ground
as we approach the throne we won't bow down
this time we won't b denied

raise every voice and let it b known
in the name of the purple and gold

we come in the name of the purple and gold
all of the odds r in r favor
no prediction 2 bold
we r the truth if the truth can b told
long reign the purple and gold

the eyes say ready 4 battle
no need 4 sword in hand
we r all amped up like a rock n roll band
ready 2 celebrate every score
ready 2 fight the elegant war
ready 2 hear the crowd roar

that's what we came 4
and so much more
in the name of the purple and gold

r spirits may b tired
r bodies may b worn
but since this day is r destiny
r history - that's y we must b
4ever strong as the wind that blows the Vikings' horn
in the name of the purple and gold

CHORUS

I don't know about you, but I'm extra revved up for that NFC Championship Game now.

Man that would fire anybody up.

There's been this middle school kid that drops an empty Jolt can on my lawn everyday as he comes home from school. After listening to that, I'm ready to dish out some pain: a few noogies, an "indian burn" and a pink belly should tell him that there's a new sheriff in town--who I work for by the way.

Prince's Vikings song will move the nation....to the nearest garbage can.

This song sounds just awful....

This is one of the funniest things I've ever heard. Sounds like something a bunch of dancing munchkins would sing. I was waiting for them to start singing "ding, dong... the witch is dead, the wicked witch... ding dong... the wicked witch is dead..."

OMG!!!
Play this during the game and we WILL lose!!!
I hope no Superdome workers read this.

This might be the worst song he has ever done. Maybe he was ill when he wrote it.

How about a real a$$-kicking funk something with a bass line? Come on.

Honestly.... Is he for real with this song? You cannot expect people to actually get pumped up listening to this. This is terrible. Simply a disgrace to all the Vikings have worked for this year. I love Prince, but seriously, this is bad.

As a Saints fan I can tell you we have already won the battle of songs written for our Beloved Saints. Our music for our team is enriched with the culture of our city. The prince song sounds like something they played when they were trying to get Noriega out of hiding. This is "THE" worst piece of sh*t I've ever heard.

GEAUX SAINTS!!!!! BLACK & GOLD SUER BOWL!!!!

I swear, I come from a high school whose colors were purple and gold, and this sounds like some sort of Alma Mater song. Maybe that's the angle he was going for. OMG, I can totally see my Alma Mater making the band play this. Ughhhh. As for an ode to a professional football team, double Ughhhhhh. Prince, I love you, but please don't sing this anywhere, please. And, please, don't be offended if no one else wants to play it. I respect your vision, I just can't understand it at this point. Maybe it just went over my head on this one. Plus, I'm a Saints fan, so I'm gonna have to laugh at the Vikings for your faux pas. Yes, they're gonna have to take one for the team.

This stinkin' song has already made its way down to New Orleans and believe me we are all laughing our butts off listening to it. It is sure to curse the Vikings. It is possibly the worst song ever written in the history of mankind. Ha ha ha. Vikes are going down with that song!

I prefer little red corvette. Prince has truly lost his touch.
Check this rival Saints song:

That song moved me to tears, such like nails on chalkboard. It definitely prepared me for the Viking's loss. Thanks Prince....

P-U so glad it paid off for the Vike-queens

P-U so glad it paid off for the Vike-queens.Hope Prince becomes their mascot next season

He saw the future and it was Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure.

Ha ha haaaa...serves you right for talking crap and can't back it up! You should probably get a real man or women to make a fight song not a panzy like prince(ss).
