Prince - Rearrange Lyrics




Rearrange your mind
Man, you've got to be drunk!
You think we'd stoop so low and play that old-time funk?
Rearrange your mind
Loosen up your hair!
You gotta do things in a different way
If you wanna get anywhere (Dig it!)

People today won't change
Got to rearrange
Kids today won't love
The kind we're dreaming of
Your music won't make me dance
I won't give it half a chance
People today won't change
Re-e-e-arrange

Rearrange your brain
Dial a brand new number
Just can't stay the same
Ain't nothing funky 'bout a waltz or rumba
Rearrange your brain
Got to free your mind!
Your hair, your clothes, your body, your soul
Won't be far behind! (Sing it!)

People today won't change
Got to rearrange
Kids today won't love
The kind we're dreaming of
Your music won't make me dance
I won't give it half a chance
People today won't change
Re-e-e-arrange

Got to rearrange
Oh
You got to rearrange
Hey, hey

People today won't change
Got to rearrange
Kids today won't love
The kind we're dreaming of
Your music won't make me dance
Won't give it half a chance
People today won't change
Re-e-e-arrange

People today won't change
Got to rearrange
Kids today won't love
The kind we're dreaming of
Your music won't make me dance
Won't give it half a chance
People today won't change
Re-e-e-arrange

Rearrange, rearrange, got to rearrange
People today won't change
Re-e-e-arrange
Rearrange, rearrange, got to rearrange
People today won't change
Re-e-e-arrange

  3. Johnnie Banks

  4. Dtox Brewer

    I'M hearing a little of " DMSR" & " Cool" from the The Time! Which was actually Prince anyway!

  5. P M

  6. Warren High

    I,m definitely hearing Lady Cab Driver all over on this one.

  7. somekidnamedold

    This is a sound I've missed.

  8. The Scripflip Network

    I wait for Ronnie talk to Russia to come after this

  11. ucbx

    This is a great track. Listening to this, I'm reminded of Party Up. The beat (or something else) is similar.

  12. ijcn0jir3nvjn3fjcifn

    The stick lady cab driver controversy nasty girl Annie Christian Sexy Dancer Get it up ....all in the mix
    And I’m sure a few more.
    This is genius

  13. Reeco Banner

    Most artist do a few versions before they decide on a final this sounds like the making of what became Lady Cab Driver love both versions

  14. Justin Pröll

    This is the best song ever! Well...at least besides almost every other one by him.

  15. P M

    Prince is the most perfect special specimen of a musical savant that I. Have. Ever. Been. Privy. To. Said Mistia Blue

  16. P M

    Gemini and ♈ get along perfectly!!!

  17. Casper Thefriendlyghost

    Just a quick question. Has ANYONE ever taken the time to look at the number 1 on 1999 and notice that the top is the head of a Penis? I noticed this WAAAAAAYYYYYYYY back in 1982. Everyone should know how freaky and sexual Prince was.

  18. Som Thing

    Prince's rejects are other artists' best work. Prince just sweeps whatever he throws on the floor, straight into the vault! How lucky are we???

  19. pr epstein

    WTF!!!!

  20. Neosoulgroovydude

    Vault one disc has the best... Good to hear these songs clear after 30 years

  21. Neosoulgroovydude

    Sexy dancer,the walk, lady cab driver, dmsr

  22. Blade Work

    Kinda lady cab driver with a better deeper bass

  23. Delmer Royster

    Good track to jam too..find the key and solo all day..i good stuff..i can see why he didn't release it thou.

  27. Eduardo Rivera

    This IS the Jam!!!

  28. Dooflotchy

    Prince was "rapping" a long time and people thought he came to the game late.
    "If a Girl Answers, Don't Hang Up."
    "Holly Rock"

  29. ROCKNROLLFAN

    Everything about this song especially the guitar solo ending in feedback is unbelievably WOW.....

  30. ROCKNROLLFAN

    Stuff like this is why I will remain a HUGE Prince fam until the day that I die.....

  31. ROCKNROLLFAN

    Tantalizing PHENOMENAL.....

  32. stephane b

    Erection musicale 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏💜💜💜💜💜🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

  33. pellis1981

    The reason why it “sounds” like other songs because it’s damm near the same chord progression and key. Genius

  34. Regina Fris

    JAM Slam, thank u, m'am! This really made my day!🦋💜💫

  35. Michael FreeHawk

    Wow! This is like a Prince buffet of the early 80's!! All you can eat! From the Times My Stick, The Walk, Lady Cab Driver, Annie Christian, Vanity 6, Controversy, it's ALL in this one!!! Big props for posting this one 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

    inspectorbudget

    Yep, he basically rearranged them into this song. 😁

  36. M2-da-izzo Brown

    That guitar lick from Sexy Dancer

  37. Jan-Willem Bavinck

    I just need so say that I probably have to rearrange my brain to hear that this is similar to Lady Cab Driver like so many others say.

    inspectorbudget

    Don't you hear the guitar part from Lady Cab Driver & Sexy Dancer back & forth???

  38. greg best

    That is so good.

  39. Dee 1

    Reminds me a lil of "Lady Cab Driver"..

  40. King James

    If you know Prince's deep discography and the "Minneapolis Style" he created and inspired in other artists, you will notice riffs and synths familiar to songs like Bambi, Private Joy, The Stick, The Walk, Nasty Girl, Lady Cab Driver. I hear it all. Prince rearranged his shit into a masterpiece!

  41. Livio Piantelli

    best track from the new vault collection!

  42. snow flakes

    Legend🎧🎤🎵🎶🎵🎶💖💕❤❤

  43. DAVINOENTERPRISES

    amazing

  44. camille prince

    lady cab driver + my stick + nasty girl!!!
    my jam!!!!

  45. Dirk Diedens

    He should have released this in the 80's...superb!

  46. Malik Rashad

    At the end of this trak Jimi Hendrix would B PROUD.

  47. Malik Rashad

    I can see Andre or Brownmark Funkin this BASS LINE.

  48. James Perkins

    If Black Opera had an anthem, this track would be the one that drew us all in. Otherworldly P!

  49. MOTHAFUNK

    I love it, it's a direct hit number one ! Maybe in short version, without this great piece of guitar (unfortunately) Prince is a Genius, Prince is Music. ✔💜☮🎶🎙🎸

  50. Justin

    This song is insanely brilliant, something we should allow our brains to do....

  51. Ronald Robinson

    guitar riff is Lady Cab Driver

    inspectorbudget

    As well as Sexy Dancer & The Stick.

  52. Sly Leggs

    This is sweet display of funk n roll. He was genuinely prolifically creative. We do here from time to time his use of stuff from other songs and song evolutions. Cant really think of anyone part from great classical composers. He uses every production trick known to man, uses a very instrument trick known and more. Iff you put all the true great musicians black Asian and white into one gene pool too u would have yourself one funky mother called Prince Rogers Nelson, sprinkle that, ith flamboyance essentric spiritual sexuality and you get PRINCE.
    peace Mr nelson

  53. Unkle Al

    Listen to that guitar!!!!!! Thank you Prince, Prince Estate, and most of all God for allowing me to live during an era of phenomenal music.

  54. Ray Wood1

    This is awesome I can hear 5 songs in this one song

  55. djJackMF

    He did this joint In the name child

  56. José Luís Oliveira

  65. snow flakes

    The artist

  66. Lloyd Scott

    This piece jams. I think because of the guitar solo he left this song off of the 1999 LP. What a gem on this remastered CD. Prince was not Jimi Hendrix, but he jams heavily on his guitar on this jam . Shut up already, damn!

  67. MOTHAFUNK

    I like it 🎙🎸futuristik n' funk -> (music). 0)+>

    connie elliott

    TOTALLY. "Rearrange" = "fututistik n' funk," etc. Agreed !!!

  68. Michael Wykel

    Always great to hear a boot I never even heard of plus it’s such a good one.

  69. Tod Matthew

    There is nothing like discovering previously "Unreleased Music" from PRINCE. Simply Awesome!

    William Dorer

    If this Song Dont Rearrange Yo Brain..........Then U Iz Insane!!

  70. Richard Dower

    The reverb guitar ending....used again on the original version of Computer Blue.

    The alternate mixdown of Computer Blue that is...hardcore know.

  71. inspectorbudget

    Wonder if he kept goin on into Orgasm? This sounds like the same vein of playing as the solo for Private Joy. Sounds like this could've been connected somehow like it was so long he might've cut pieces to use in other songs.

  72. Richard Dower

    Just an FYI...this sing was revamped in 1988 for possible inclusion on the original Rave Unto The Joy Fantastic album.

    He also pulled out Moonbeam Levels and worked on that.

    K S

    There's quite a few tracks he pulled out at that time and reworked... Many of them are still not known publicly (and I'm not talking about "Extra Lovable" and "Poppa Grooves"... There's truly ones he and Chuck Zwicky pulled out to remix that aren't documented very well)

  73. inspectorbudget

    Anybody notice how he's heavily accenting notes on the bass? Especially on the 2 & 4????? Monstrous!

    Bashiri Tamplin

    Prince bass parts in eigth notes gives the groove a consistent feel. In fact, it's almost a melody.

    Petaia Fata

    I sure did!! Sounds so pocket in the groove 🔥🔥

  74. Gabriel S

    When I heard that short clip on the story of 1999 podcast I was instantly sold on this one. This is such a jam, I'm surprised he never pulled it back out for Graffiti Bridge (unless there's another version we don't know of).

    K S

    Technically there is another version... From 1988

  75. Infidel14?

    This is some str8 Minneapolis Funk. Like an amalgam of 'Sexy Dancer', 'Lady Cab Driver', and 'The Stick'. I've always loved P's approach to playing rhythm guitar. Then he cranks up the distortion for a guitar solo. Wonder what guitar he used to record the guitar solo? Couldn't have been his Hohner Tele or his Gibson L6: Neither of them had a whammy bar, and P is clearly doing some Hendrix-like divebombs on this track.

    Infidel14?

    @inspectorbudget Doesn't sound like Dez to my ears at all. Guitar styles are a lot like fingerprints, you can often identify a player without even seeing their face just by listening. The aggression, the speed, the heavy note bends, and the Santana-esque finger vibrato are all dead giveaways that this is Prince playing this solo.

    inspectorbudget

    @Infidel14? Agreed.I was almost embarrassed to suggest it was Dez. But again just goes to show Prince stays full of surprises!

    Infidel14?

    @inspectorbudget I would dare say that maybe P used one of Jesse Johnson's guitars for this track. The lead tone reminds me of the sounds he used on 'Private Joy' and '777-9311'. I recall Jesse saying in Facebook post that Prince used his Hohner Strat copy to play the rhythm guitar part on 777-9311.

    connie elliott

    Uh...what's a whammy bar?

    inspectorbudget

    @connie elliott Have you ever noticed some guitars have a little metal bar on them? Look up Jimi Hendrix playing the national anthem at Woodstock. You will know what a whammy bar is. 🤣🤣🤣😁

  76. thesavvyboy

    Prequel to Lady Cab Driver

  77. THE LIKWIDLIGHT EXP

    PRINCE ALWAYS HAD A MESSAGE. HIM AND STEVIE WONDER ARE MY MAIN INFLUENCES. I KNOW THW BEST IS YET TO COME.

    You can literally sing MY STICK by THE TIME to this.

    Casper Thefriendlyghost

    You mean "My Stick" by Prince FOR The Time! Prince wrote, composed and produced The Time's first three albums.

    Dangerous Television

    @Casper Thefriendlyghost Which sounds just like REARRANGE. You could've saved that comment. I knew that before you were probably born.

    Will

    Lol chill guys. Can't we just appreciate the music

  82. Ella Bor

    I luv ya Mr. Prince the real singer see ya in heaven someday. Hello 1958

  83. Guy Hermanson

    I'm amazed more people haven't commented! This is a higher level of making it scream.

  84. LaChele

    That groove... Prince mastered that. I'm really enjoying these records.

  85. o'darque hunnett

    Totally hearing "The Walk" in there as well...great track all the way around!

  86. Cornelius Thorn

    The kid is in rare form

    William Dorer

    Billy said that as a Insult though, in the Movie!

    Michael C. Trotter

    @William Dorer Personally, I don't think he meant it as an insult...I believe he was just saying it as a matter of fact.

    John Arundell

    No William rare form just means very high level form, not having a rare good show.

    Uffe

    @Red Ninja In the song Vagina he says "Half Boy, half girl. BEST OF BOTH WORLDS" . I really thought that was a callback from your side. Lol!

    ShadowsofSmoke

    Uhhh...excuse me, but He was...The Time

  99. Garry Hairston

    Slamming, of course it reminds u of Lady Cab Driver but does any1 hear Sexy Dancer? The ending makes me think of Annie Christian.

    inspectorbudget

    Yes. He use one of the guitar hooks from Sexy Dancer juxtaposed with the hook from Lady Cab Driver then caps em with the chord from The Stick. Great musical insight you have. I immediately noticed it.

    Bryan Smith

    That will explain why I'm doing the heavy breathing from Sexy Dancer...there are at least 8 or 9 Prince, Time, or Vanity influenced songs from this or in this song...LOVE IT

    Justin

    Nailed it...

    nov8r1

    That's the first lick I heard.

    Tony Royal

    Now that you mentioned it,sexy dancer.
