Prince - 100 MPH Lyrics




One, two, three
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha

There's a fairy tale that says
Once upon a time
Funky music belonged to people who
Drank cheap wine

That's why I gotta get on my own way
That's the new golden rule
Enjoy the closest human
I'm much too hot to be cool
100 miles an hour, baby
That's what it's all about
I need a lover that can slow me down
Somebody that'll make me shout

There's a misconception that says
Everything on the one (Everything on the one)
Then my first reaction is just try to
Have a little fun

That's why I gotta get on my own way
That's the new golden rule
Enjoy the closest human
I'm much too hot to be cool
100 miles an hour, baby
That's what it's all about
I need a lover that can slow me down
Somebody that'll make me shout
Uh, ha, ha-ha-ha, ha, oh

There's a fairy tale that says
Twice in the Land of Oz (Twice in the Land of Oz)
Dorothy make love to the Lion because
Because, because

That's why I gotta get on my own way
That's the new golden rule
Enjoy the closest human
I'm much too hot to be cool
100 miles an hour, baby
That's what it's all about
I need a lover that can slow me down
Somebody that'll make me shout (Make me shout)

Gonna make me shout

  1. Derian

    YO MR.RANGER?

    Mr. Ranger

    Yo Derian the goats of goats. No way it’s you.

    Derian

    Mr. Ranger ayyyye appreciate it man yessir

  2. Be Original

    Prince was a beast

  3. Kavita8

    This song remind of a GAY MAN speeding out the closet...Lmaoooo just perfect Prince Mazarati Group...

  4. Michael Gaines

    Umm.....So Prince created New jack swing??? Figures...

    Group Break Checklists

    Yes, fact...definitely off shoot of the minny sound.

  5. Johnny Olson

    Fantastic tune. Wow.

  6. Matthew Reese

    The Mazarati album that this was on was actually really good. I still own this 45 single but it fades out to quick unlike the album version.

  7. John Cantatore

    This release makes question what he was thinking in the 80s, how can you throwaway all of these gems, some of the most pristine pop of the decade

  8. Wise Woman

    I liked this song when I was a kid, never caring for Rock music..should have known Prince had something to do with it. :-)

  9. Group Break Checklists

    love this song... Mazarati crushed this one... Prince's demo is great though.

    The M.A.

    Speaking of Mazarati, it's a shame that their version of "100 MPH" is becoming harder to listen to.

  10. campfive

    I'm digging this!

  11. Wayne Jackson

    The. Greatest musician of all time bar none...

  12. Gomer Hanger

    Prince has been dropping some absolute bangers in recent months. No surprise Prince is back on Top Billboard 100!

    The M.A.

    I know that I'm over 3 months late but "Top" and "Billboard" are in the wrong places.

  13. g jb

    wot a sound insane ...1000 times better than wot u hear on mtv .radio or whereva unreal in vaults and its still light years ahead of 80% percent of wot u hear craaaazzzy .....

  14. Brew311

    I heard this on the local college radio station today.

  15. Rafikah

    I haven’t been able to bring myself to listen to his music since his passing. By chance, these videos from the new album were suggested to me. So I clicked. And fml I’ve been missing out for the past 3 months!! I love this man! Even still, he leaves me shook!

  16. Gabriel Azazel

    'the' funk, never will be another!

  17. TAS 3

    "Uh, ha, ha [1, 2, 3, huh]

    There’s a fairy tale that says
    Once upon a time
    Funky music belonged to people who
    Drank cheap wine

    That’s why I gotta get on my own way

  18. Bob B

    The GOAT...plain n simple.

  31. Stefon Williams

    Prince 100 mph that song was amazing

  32. luv4jan

    Damn I luv this version!!!!

  33. Captain K

    What year was this song originally recorded?

    Maserati released it back in 1986, Mark Browns side band.

    The M.A.

    You misspelled Mazarati. 🧐

  34. Michael J. Smith, Ph.D.

    Just bought this CD! Wasn’t Mazzerati supposed to be more of a rock band? #prince4ever ❤️❤️❤️💜💜💜💜🤘🏾🤘🏾🤘🏾

  35. kpyng

    Nothing compares 2 U, Prince...

  36. Kay Robbie

    I think because people first heard this song from Mazarati is probably the reason people like their version better. But then again I am one sided when it comes to Prince because I like 99% of everything this musical genius does. I just love everything about him.

  37. Interstellar Five

    Does anyone else hear "yu yu hakusho monster suit"

  38. jaymatic23

    This intro/outro is one of best I’ve ever heard

  39. Patrizia Brugiatelli

    Grande Prince v🙋🌹questa è stupenda

  40. Scarlet Red

    The funkiest 🎶

  41. Scarlet Red

    💜😘

  42. Purple Reign

    Everything on the one.

  43. B. Rod Clark

    Mazarati version's mixed better w/extra goodies though this demo isn't too bad...i dig the drum roll in the end too!

  44. Lonnie Ledford

    #truefunksoldier May u live 2 c the Dawn

  45. Susan Carver

    I love the beat.💜💜🎸🎸🎤🎤💞💞

  46. Rosalind Morgan

    Definitely running a 100 miles an hour away from you without stop signs getting in the way

    Rosalind Morgan

    @Groggz the statement I made was not to you but to someone else

  47. Troy Robinson

    Now I know why Prince was so controlling, wow they would package a complete band around his songs, and some of the versions were better, with his help of course, The Time, Sheila E, The Family, Maserati, Vanity 6, that would make a great movie

    CorrectVision3

    Troy Robinson don't forget Apollonia 6

  48. chaarawtaza

    un categorized funk!

  49. I can't think of a good username

    I love that this little hidden gems are finally being uploaded on Youtube, these deserve to be known. I would love it if pretty much any song made by Prince for Margie Cox was uploaded, I remember my favorite was Brand New Boy

  50. Merry Goldfarb

    Would be nice if Prince Official actually shipped preorders on the release date, not a month after. Unlike Amazon customers who already received theirs. I’ll never order from them again. #Still waiting.

  51. jeff L

    THE GOAT !! I love Mazarati's version as well. I was not surprised to learn that Prince penned it.

  52. The Modster

    Hey this was his pastime mutha fukaaas! 😁

  53. Franz Liszt

    It's lit

  54. Lisa Flores

    First time to hear this one ❤️! Anything PRINCE all day everyday!! Rest in paradise my love!! #Gonebutnever4gotten# 💖💔💜

  55. claudy Mo

    I love this CD🕊Prince Originals

  56. Kelvin Lovett

    Pure Genius

  57. Layla Giles

    The heavier and stripped down version of this (which i believe is the original demo) is better

  58. Alexandre Franco

    Prince Forever!

  59. lanceflx63

  60. jivebungy1st

  64. Stephon

    Funky jam!

  65. Coury landers

    Damn,Jay-Z ass capitalizing on Prince!SMDH

    suZee Six

    Prince and Jay Z were good friends. They teamed up for social justice issues and music.
    Prince liked to support Black owned businesses. That’s why he took all of his music off Spotify and gave it to Tidal. Jay Z paid him UP FRONT for it and Prince says the deal was “very lucrative”.

    After the killing of Freddie Gray, Prince went to Baltimore and had a show. He invited Freddie’s family to the front row. He donated all of the money to programs for kids in Baltimore and Jay Z matched the donations and flew in Trayvon’s and Mike Browns families.

    Jay Z started the Tidal store just to sell Prince’s music. Prince streamed concerts there and had Purple Pick Of The Week playlist. He treated Prince like royalty when the others were acting like Purple Rain was his last album. Tidal had 30+ Prince albums when Spotify had only 13.
    I don’t care what they think of him. When it came to Prince, he gave mad respect and reverence.

  66. Angela Cardill

    Magic 💜

  67. The M.A.

  81. Mark E

  82. Helen Fountain

    Prince the one and only. Awesome.

  83. Starr Company

    Can't touch the version that he did for Mazerati!Mazerati's lead singer was the shit and Prince's production was better on their track🖤 (i miss you man)
    I pranked called you at Paisley Park in 94 I pretended to be Levi seacer Junior and they passed you the phone and you picked up the phone and said hello, and I told you I was your biggest fan and I got a chuckle from you and then you hung up! But I'll never forget I got you on the phone and you spoke to me!🖤👍🏿
