Emancipation

Ever since I was a little baby
I had to have double everything
When they tell me that's enough
That's when I wanna fill my cup
To the top, Johnny, hear me sing

Emancipation - free to do what I wanna
Emancipation - see you in the purple rain
Emancipation - free to do what I wanna
Emancipation - break the chain, break the chain

Ever since that Eve did unto Adam, alright
What somebody been sho'nuff doin' to me (watch it!)
I've been tryin' to break the chain
Get my little ass out the game
I'd rather sing with a bit more harmony, oh

Emancipation - free to do what I wanna
Emancipation - see you in the purple rain
Emancipation - free to do what I wanna
Emancipation - break the chain, break the chain

Johnny please, huh, when I was on my knees
My back was broken and my spirit ill at ease
And now it seems just like the autumn leaves
Your money's turned from green to brown and now you best believe

Emancipation - free to do what I wanna
Emancipation - see you in the purple rain
Emancipation - free to do what I wanna
Emancipation - break the chain, break the chain

(Emancipation) {repeat in BG}
Break the chain, oh yeah
Well, sho'nuff
See you in the purple rain
Emancipation - free to do what I wanna
Break the... break the... break the chain!

Hey!
Alright!
Hey! {x4}

Emancipation
Free - don't think I ain't!
