Purple and Gold Song: Prince Vikings Fight Song?

Prince, has written a fight song for his Minneapolis team, the Minnesota Vikings. The song will play in the conference championship game against the New Orleans Saints this Sunday.
I'm looking for the lyrics of the Vikings fight song by Prince.
Can anyone link me to the lyrics? Also I'd like to download the song in mp3 format for my media player. Listened to the song in youtube and it's awesome.
If you know of any download links for the mp3 audio file let me know. Prince made another superb song as always.

Mister Prince is a native of Minneapolis and an all-time Vikings fan; Prince says that after not having noticed them play in a while, he focused on last Sunday’s playoff game, and got inspired to create the song.

Lyrics of Purple and Gold, the Prince Vikings fight song.

the veil of the sky draws open
the roar of the chariots touch down
we r the ones who have now come again
and walk upon water like solid ground
as we approach the throne we won’t bow down
this time we won’t b denied

raise every voice and let it b known
in the name of the purple and gold

we come in the name of the purple and gold
all of the odds r in r favor
no prediction 2 bold
we r the truth if the truth can b told
long reign the purple and gold

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
ready 2 fight the elegant war
ready 2 hear the crowd roar

that’s what we came 4
and so much more
in the name of the purple and gold

r spirits may b tired
r bodies may b worn
but since this day is r destiny
r history - that’s y we must b
4ever strong as the wind that blows the Vikings’ horn
in the name of the purple and gold

Prince explained to a radio station: "I saw the future" during the game, referring to what inspired him to create the Purple and Gold song.
