Prince – Slave 2 The System lyrics

(Slave) [repeat in song]

Slave, yeah [x2]

Slave 2 the system here before I was born
Slave 2 the master, workin' me till I'm worn
The only penthouse I can count on's a big black ball and chain
Slave 2 the system, the future's all arranged

Oh, you better fetch that water, boy [x2]
Slave 2 the system

Thompson's my last name, but my daddy's name is Lloyd
The farther back I trace it, the more it becomes null and void
All my life I've struggled just 2 be called a boy
Slave 2 the system, oh what a joy

Oh, you better fetch that water, boy
Hell if I do!
(Oh, you better fetch that water, boy)
Oh, I'm just a slave 2 the system

Here before I was born
Slave 2 the master, workin' me till I'm worn

Slave 2 the system
