Prince "Sees the Future" and Pens Minnesota Vikings Anthem

Prince "Sees the Future" and Pens Minnesota Vikings Anthem
The Purple One has done it again. After attending an NFL Football game in which the Minnesota Vikings defeated the Dallas Cowboys, Prince reportedly "saw the future" and was inspired to go home and write an anthem for the the Minnesota franchise titled "Purple and Gold."

As Fox 9 reports [TwentyFourBit], the Minnesota Vikings love the song, and are planning to put it on their website. The song can be heard below, and in case you wanted to follow along, here are the soul-jerking, heartstring-tugging, sky-reaching lyrics. Try not to shed a tear:

the veil of the sky draws open

the roar of the chariots touch down

we r the ones who have now come again

and walk upon water like solid ground

as we approach the throne we won't bow down

this time we won't b denied

raise every voice and let it b known

in the name of the purple and gold

we come in the name of the purple and gold

all of the odds r in r favour

no prediction 2 bold

we r the truth if the truth can b told

long reign the purple and gold

the eyes say ready 4 battle

no need 4 sword in hand

we r all amped up like a rock'n'roll band

ready 2 celebrate every score

ready 2 fight the elegant war

ready 2 hear the crowd roar

that's what we came 4

and so much more

in the name of the purple and gold



r spirits may b tired

r bodies may b worn

but since this day is r destiny

r history -€“ that's y we must b

4ever strong as the wind that blows the Vikings' horn

in the name of the purple and gold


Note the use of the letter "r" as both the word "are" and "our." Very clever!
