  • (Gentlemen, let's broaden our minds)

    Oh-oh yeah

    All hail, the new king in town
    Young and old, gather 'round, yeah
    Black and white, red and green (yeah, yeah, yeah)
    (Oh yeah) the funkiest man, you've ever seen

    Tell you what his name is
    Partyman, Partyman
    Rock a party like nobody can
    Rules and regulations, no place in his nation
    Partyman, Partyman

    Party people say it now
    (Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
    Somebody holler if you wanna party
    (Ladies and gentlemen, no pictures, please)

    Get it up
    Oh yeah
    Partyman (Partyman)
    Get it up, get it up
    Ooh, I

    (Ooh, I love purple)

    I rock the party, I rock the house
    I rock the whole world
    North, East and South
    In the West, seventeen horns blowin'

    Partyman, Partyman
    (Lose me now boy)
    Get it up
    (All hail the new king in town)

    Ain't nothin' but a muffin
    We gotta lotta butter to go
    (Why'say aye, an' I like ya 'way, but don't come now)
    And if it break when it bend
    You better not put it in

    Giddy up
    (Ride 'em boy)

    Young and old, gather 'round
    Everybody hail, the new king in town Writer/s: Prince Rogers Nelson

  • Mizr from Beverly Hills, CaIn Partyman Video, Prince portrays a called Gemini, half Joker, half-Prince character. He was always a huge fan of Batman as a kid. One of the first songs he learned to play was the original Batman Theme song on Panio.
  • Mykl from Baltimore, MdFor true Prince fans - The b-side of this song is a track called "Feel U Up (Short Stroke)". I searched long and hard for the "Long Stroke" version and finally found it in England.
  • Ma_cherie from Little Rock, ArIn Prince's video of this song, he displays a half-Batman, half-Joker character.
