    Lyrics below

     

    [Intro]
    (Dead like Elvis)
    Check, check, 1-2, check
    You know what he’s saying?

    [Chorus]
    Face down! [x2]

    [Verse 1]
    Somebody once told him that he wouldn’t take Prince through the ringer
    Let him go down as a washed up singer
    Ain’t that a bitch?
    Thinkin’ all along that he wanted to be rich
    Never respected the root of all evil and he still don’t to this day, huh
    Bury him face down, let the motherfuckers kiss a ass, OK?

    [Chorus]

    [Verse 2]
    Told them he wanted to sing a song about a black child going buck wild
    And they just laughed in his face
    Talk to your lawyer but you got no case
    What you need to do is keep your place
    Next time you pull a card, it better be an ace motherfucker
    Or you can lay face down (Face down!)

    [Chorus]

    [Bridge]
    Horn[x2]
    Bass[x2]

    [Verse 3]
    Him and her meaning who I’m singing about
    And his psychoanalyst kinda saw the catalyst
    As the devil with the blue jeans on, huh
    Ain’t it kinda funny when you see the dawn?
    Sign the name they gave you
    But when them motherfuckers turn around ass up, you’re what?

    [Chorus]
    Face down! 1-2
    Face down! New Power Generation in the house, bury them all
    Face down! Yes, oh Lord
    Face down!

    [Outro]
    Orchestra[x3]
    Face down!
    Orchestra
    Face down!
    It’s in his will, I read it
    He shot to kill, he said it
    For those who know the number and don’t call
    Huh, fuck all yall
    Face down![x3]
