      Note: If the lyrics are misquoted, please feel free to correct me. I am sharing the lyrics but I have not read them all, nor have I heard every song Prince wrote. Thank you in advance!


      [Verse 1]
      There was one September day that Papa worked too hard
      First he crucified every dandelion out in the yard
      Then he screamed at baby twice for throwing rocks at passing cars
      Baby didn’t listen, so like a priceless work of art
      He got snatched by his Papa who then opened up the closet door
      And pushed the four-year-old down, onto the closet floor
      Baby cried “I’m sorry, I won’t do it no more
      Papa said “Yeah, I know, that’s what this here’s for”

      [Chorus 1]
      Ooh Papa
      Smack! Smack!
      Ooh Papa, Papa
      Ooh Papa
      Smack! Smack
      Ooh Papa, Papa

      [Verse 2]
      As the door closes, baby starts to cry
      “Please don’t lock me up again, without a reason why
      Papa just went outside and pointed a shotgun up in the sky
      He said “How come I don’t love my woman?”
      Then he took aim and died

      [Chorus 2]
      Boom! Boom!
      Papa, Papa
      Boom! Boom!
      Papa, Papa

      Don’t abuse children, or else they turn out like me

      Fair to partly crazy, deep down we’re all the same
      Every single one of us knows some kind of pain
      In the middle of all that’s crazy, this one fact still remains
      If you love somebody, your life won’t be in vain
      And there’s always a rainbow, at the end of every rain
