Prince Purple and Gold. prince vikings song, price, prinz, price minister . The Purple One has love for the Purple and Gold, ripping out a song in the Vikings' honor before Sunday's big game with the New Orleans Saints.
A clip of Prince's "Purple and Gold'' debuted Thursday on the 9 p.m. Fox 9 newscast. He told Fox 9 he "saw the future'' at last week's blowout game against the Cowboys -- where he was spotted in a Dome skybox -- and was inspired to write the song. Here are the lyrics, in Prince's signature idiosyncratic spelling:
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
Prince was so moved by the Vikings win over the Cowboys last week, he put together a tribute song to his hometown team for the NFC Championship versus theNew Orleans Saints: Purple and Gold.
Worst. Song. EVER.
I was so moved after I heard that, I had to go vomit. If you’re really interested what spews from mini-me’s brain, here are the lyrics, according to My Fox Twin Cities:
Purple and Gold Lyrics
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
If I have to be subjected to any Vikings singing, I prefer Favre flubbing the lyrics to Pants on the Ground:
