The lyrics to "Let's Go Crazy" are feeling eerie now

Dearly beloved,
We are gathered here today
To get through this thing called life.
---
All excited, but don't know why
Maybe it's 'cause we're all gonna die
And when we do (when we do)
What's it all for? (what's it all for)
Better live now
Before the grim reaper comes knocking on your door

Are we gonna let de-elevator bring us down?
Oh, no, let's go




Rest in peace, sweet Prince.


Edited to add intro after KamaAina's helpful point.

Phrase he repeats.

11. I'm very curious about his comment abouthis final words to fans


'Wait a few days before you waste any prayers' - Prince's final words to fans as music legend's death is confirmed

http://www.independent.ie/entertainment/music/music-news/wait-a-few-days-before-you-waste-any-prayers-princes-final-words-to-fans-as-music-legends-death-is-confirmed-34648556.html
<snip>
The 57-year-old singer appeared at a party at his Paisley Park compound on Saturday to assure his fans he was okay, the day after his plane was forced to make an emergency landing due to a medical emergency.

The party, he said, was to celebrate the good weather and the support and love he had been shown since he was taken to hospital the previous day, the Telegraph reports.

He didn't perform, but he did make a short speech to the crowd. Fans had paid $10 to attend the party.

14. Speaking of new levels - more of the lyrics.

Things are much harder than in the afterworld
In this life, you're on your own
And if de-elevator tries to bring you down
Go crazy, punch a higher floor
