Mr. Man, carta al director de todo este tinglado.

No todas las letras de las canciones compuestas por Prince hablan de sexo y orgasmos de color púrpura. El genio de Minneapolis al final de su carrera también escribió unas magníficas canciones en donde nos denuncia la corrupción del sistema capitalista. Una de estas canciones es "Mr. Man" que fue incluida dentro de "Musicology". Escrita a modo de "cartas al Director", Mr. Man es una misiva dirigida al señor que dirige todo este tinglado en donde todos estamos montados.

What's wrong with the world 2day?
Things just got 2 get better
Show me what the leaders say
Maybe we should write a letter

Said Dear Mr. Man, we don't understand
Why poor people keep struggling but you don't lend a helping hand
Matthew 5: 5 say "The meek shall inherit the earth"
We wanna b down that way
But you been trippin since the day of your birth

Who said that 2 kill is a sin
Then started every single war that Ur people been in?
Who said that water is a precious commodity
Then dropped a big old black oil slick in the deep blue sea?

Who told me, Mr. Man, that working round the clock
Would buy me a big housed in the hood
Cigarette ads on every block
Who told me, Mr. Man, that Eye got a right 2 moan?
How about this bog old hole in the ozone?

What's wrong with the world 2day
Things just got 2 get better
Dear Mr. Man, we don't understand
Maybe we should write a letter

Listen, Ain't no sense in voting - same song with a different name
Might not b in the back of the bus but it sure feel just the same
Ain't nothing fair about welfare
Ain't no assistance in aids
We ain't that affirmative about your actions until the people get paid

Ur thousand years are up
Now you got 2 share the land
Section 1 - the 14th amendment says "No state shall deprive any person of life,
Liberty, or property, without due process of law"
Mr. Man, we want 2 end this letter with 3 words
We tired a-y'all

Me he permitido la libertad de añadirle unas imágenes que espero sean de vuestro agrado:
