“Cinnamon Girl” By: Prince

As war drums beat in Babylon

Cinnamon Girl starts 2 pray

I never heard a prayer like this one

Never before that day

 

Tearful words of love 4 people

She had never met b4

Asking God 2 grant them mercy

In this face of holy war

 

Cinnamon Girl

Cinnamon Girl

 

Cinnamon Girl of mixed heritage

Never knew the meaning of color lines

9/11 turned that all around

When she got accused of this crime

 

So began the mass illusion

War on terror alibi

What’s the use when the god of confusion

Keeps on telling the same lie?

 

Cinnamon Girl

Cinnamon Girl

 

Don’t cry, don’t shed no tears

One lie won’t make us fear

‘Cause we know how

This movie’s ending

 

Cinnamon Girl

 

As war drums beat in Babylon

And torched the blood red sky

Militants bomb with 4eign guns

Both sides – children die

 

Cinnamon Girl opens the book

She knows will settle all the scores

Then she prays: after the war-

That there will not b anymore

 

Cinnamon Girl

Cinnamon Girl

Cinnamon Girl

Cinnamon Girl

 

 

 

For some odd reason i cant find the CD from which this great song and many others by Prince has come from. I found the case with the lyric book in it and i found the video for this song on youtube. I really need to listen to this whole CD because even though i still listen to the class prince that i grew up on this album just touches my soul every time i hear it. Where are you Musicology?????
