The Time – Tricky lyrics

(lead vocals by Prince)

.... 1, 2, 3, 4
.... Why you big, tossed-salad, hairdo-havin', long, tall, snaggly gold-toothed,
.... Funkin' habit-formed, leather-wearin', beanpole-lookin', black...

Shit! Oh! Somebody bring me a piece of chicken!

What... What Tricky say? What Tricky say? Yakety-yak?
Yakety-yak. My ass, motherfucker.
Oh, gimme some horns.

You can't fuck with that, look out!
We ain't gonna put no more instruments on this.
We ain't got time. We don't have ti... What time is it?
It's time for you to... It's time for you to retire.
You're old, but wait, wait, wait!

Why you, and you?
You... You old, Michelin Man, fat, black...

Break now. Yes!

When I look in the mirror. I see your ugly face.
I just wanna run, in front of...
Wait, gimme some horns.

Now you go. You, you..., wait, wait, wait.
Let me... Wait. You, you, you're just old.
That's all I know, you're just old and you're fat.
You know it too, don't you?
You know it, you're just fat and old.
Hit me! Uh! Yes! Yes!
That's right, yes!

Johnny, Johnny!
Don't you wish you could get on tv? On the one!
.... My man, say: "Johnny, Johnny!"
