Prince – What's My Name lyrics

Take my name, I don't need it
Nothing stays the same anyway
Take my fame, I can't use it
My girlfriend calls me lame, the game was over yesterday

Tell me, what's my name?
Tell me, what's my name?
What's my name?

Take this bass, I can't play it
It only makes me wish 4 the way it used 2 be
You could slap my face, but I got 2 say it
You never would have drank my coffee if I had never served you cream

Now tell me, what's your name?
Tell me, what's your name?
What's your name?
What's your name?
Come on!

Do you dream in color or do you discriminate?
Do you love others, do you love or do you hate?
Do you worship fire or do you worship a dove?
Do you live a liar or do you live 4 love?

What's your name?

What's my name?
What's your name?
