Robyne Robinson broke the news at the local fox affiliate in Minneapolis, Minnesota, that PRINCE was set to debut a Minnesota Vikings fight song tonight.  The song is entitled "Purple & Gold."

Prince has been seen at a few Vikings football game and may have been inspired by Brett Favre n the way they manhandled the Cowboys on Sunday.  Shoot, I hope it replaces Brett singing "Pants On The Ground" for sure.

Prince had this to say to FOX9:

“I saw the future,” said Prince.

He said he went home that night, wrote the song, "Purple and Gold," and said it came easy and fast.

Check out the song above and let me know what you think.-Dr.FB

Update:  here are the lyrics to the Vikings fight song entitled "Purple & Gold"

Purple and Gold Lyrics

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 favor
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

CHORUS

  1. I was on the phone w/ my Mom when it came on and I told her…it sounds like a College Anthem song or a hymnal song sung in church. I then read the lyrics and will say…the lyrics are simple but pretty col for a “fight” song, but unfortunately the song when sung is pretty weak….pretty damn week. Call me crazy, but I was expecting a little more BITE in the Fight…..something along the lines of Fury or Guitar! I just don’t think it is something the Viking are gunna listen to in the locker room before the big game to GET FIRED UP!

    GO VIKINGS!!!!!!

  2. That song was good. Good at being TERRIBLE.

  3. Here’s my 2¢…musically, it’s the traditional (slow) beat of a school fight song. My high school fight had similar tempo. It’s not meant to be funky or for radio play. Now, u can spice it up a bit similar to what the kids sung the school’s fight song in the movie “Lean on Me”. Otherwise, in this day and age of MTV, FB and Youtube, it’s not catchy or funky enough for the youth mindset. Besides…Imma SAINTS fan! And we gonna make the purple and gold turn into BLACK and GOLD this Sunday!! WHO DAT!! WE DAT!! GEAUX SAINTS!!!

  4. Lets look at it for what it is, a fight song in the traditional sense. Most “fight songs” especially college fight songs are song like hymns.

    I think it is a demo not to be sang by Prince himself, but for what it was written for.

  5. man…. come on.. that is the wackest crap ever…i belive that it came to him quick…this is a classic example of when no one will tell a guy the truth.

    I blame his homeboys who listened to it and said.. yeah, Prince..that’s the one.. IT’S NOT!!

    but, Bria is cute…and yup, I’d hit it.

  6. Are we being punked? Where is Aston???

    Seriously, Prince better answer the phone for Haiti!!!

    As far as a “fight” song, I was ready to fight when I heard it! So I guess it works the way it should.

  7. At least he did it for the home team.

    Bit of a sell out move but he’s been on that path for awhile.

    I ain’t mad at him though. Nto for this at least

  8. Listened to it again and just realized … Jehovah’s Witness.. It reminds me of the music at the Kingdom Hall where I used to take my Grandmother every Easter ( Passover)….mmmmm Be Interested in hearing it in it’s completion..

  9. wow…..look how many people fell for your joke Doc……..u got a lot of smart followers there….way to go!!

  10. That is so much more deliciously awful than I could have ever anticipated.

    Yo, Prince! When’s your song for Haiti coming out? Yeah, I thought so.

  11. I’m a Prince and Vikings fan and that song straight up STUNK!!! You can’t fight or play football after that song!!! Come on Prince. Get a little DREAMER inspiration in the song!!! GUITAR, GUITAR, GUITAR!!!!

  12. well maybe theres a kick ass guitar solo in the middle so im stil courious to here the full song

  13. Well all rightee then….

  14. I love Prince, but that’s just terrible. What was he thinking?

  15. I’ve a feeling the Vikings WILL fight when they hear that song. There may not be another team around when they do… but !!

  16. oh man, Purple & Gold sounds like the song Graffiti Bridge..and i’m sorry to say it’s soo weak! i love Prince, but he should replace it before Sunday’s game. No one wants to hear that at a Football game. yikes!

  17. THAT SONG IS STRAIGHT UP BOOTY!!! YUCK!!!

    WHO DAT!!!

  18. How Bout BLACK RAIN on the Purple Pain or All that Glitters is a Saint or Cleatin’ Down da Blouses or Viks R Dikes??? WHO DAT!!

  19. Possible songs titles: Purple Reign 2. Three men and a Mullett. Takin care of Breesy in the Big Easy.Farve 4 U.How come U don’t call an audible.Superfunkycalifragikleinsasser.
