(Newser) – Prince has channeled his enthusiasm for his hometown Vikings into a new song ahead of Sunday's NFC championship game against the New Orleans Saints. The Purple One penned “Purple and Gold” after he attended last week's victory over the Cowboys and “saw the future," he tells MyFox Twin Cities. The team plans to post the tune on its website.

Sample lyric: “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.”
