3 Chains O' Gold
Prince
If I don't think about the fact that she left me
If I don't see the pearls fall from the sky
If I don't hear the accusations of blasphemy
If I don't feel the tears in my eyes
This is the best day of my life

U say u'll call me and then and then u don't
I'll want 2 kiss u and then I won't
We both do nothing and call it love
Is this love?
Is this love?

This morning I wanted a cup of coffee
But I didn't have any cream
Last night I wanted some inspiration
But I didn't have any dreams
Coupled with the fact that u belong 2 another
Whose name is self-righteousness
So evil girl, if one of us has a date
with the undertaker, which one will it be?
U can cry 4 ever, but u'll get no sympathy
This is the best day of my life

I've got 3 chains o' gold
And they will shine 4 ever
They are the nucleus of my soul
Melt down, no, they will never

I've got 3 chains o' gold
And they will shine 4 ever
They are the nucleus of my soul
Melt down, no, they will never

Give back the chains - if you don't you will die
Nothing should come between you and I

I've got 3 chains o' gold
And they will shine 4 ever
If one of us has 2 go
U will go before me

If one of us has 2 go (3 chains o' gold)
U will go before me
(3 chains o' gold)
u will go before me, baby (they will shine 4 ever)
cuz I sho 'nuff say u will

(3 chains o' gold)
(u will go before me)
(u will go before me)
(u will go before me)
(u will go before me)

I've got 3 chains o' gold
They gonna shine...

Forever, forever, forever

(3 chains o' gold)

Hello.
Vanessa?
I'm not recording this time.
So how are you?
How are u?
Fine.
Fine.
Excuse me, but ah, what's up with your voice?
It's a special phone, a tone box
A tongue box. Oh, l-like in the movie Barbarella.
Yeah. Gives me courage, u know
Like a veil I can hide behind
It talks at, around, through her
Ok, so why are you giving me an interview
Because I want u...
Pardon me?
To tell the truth
Oh - well, I will if you will.
For example, the first song of your opera
Ah, the opera
Why don't you tell me your real name.
My name is Victor
That is not the truth and you know it.
How old are you?
I'm into my 5th soul now so that makes me three hundred...
Why do you pretend to be a maze?
... and twenty. I'm amazed at your beauty.
I saw you on television.
320 hmm, don't sweat it honey, I'm too young for you.
Although rumor has it that the crown princess of Cairo
is now a member of the NPG.
Are you there?
Ahem...
Do you know that the princess is 16 years old?
How 'bout this for a story. "320 year old robs the cradle"
What a scandal.
Scandal...
You know, if you don't give me the real story,
I'll have to make one up of my own.
So why don't you tell me the truth - the truth - the truth
Why don't you tell me the truth?
