Play That Funky Music 

Hey do it now

yeah hey


Yeah

Once I was a Boogie singer

Playing in a rock & Roll Band

I never had no problems yeah

Burning down one night stands

And everything around me

yeah

Got to stop to feeling so low

And I decided quickly

Yes I did

To disco down and check out the show

Yeah they were


Dancing and singing

and moving to the grooving

And just when it hit me somebody turned around and shouted

Play that funky music white boy

Play that funky music right

Play that funky music white boy

Lay down that boogie and play that funky music till you die

Till you die, Yeah yeah


I tried to understand this

I thought that they were out of their minds

How could I be so foolish

(how could I)

To not see I was the one behind

So still I kept on fighting

Losing every step of the way

I said I must go back there

(I got to go back here)

And check to see if things still the same


Yeah they were dancin’, and singin’

And movin’ to the groovin’

And just when, it hit me

Somebody turned around and shouted


Play that funky music white boy

Play that funky music right

Play that funky music white boy

Lay down the boogie and play that funky music til you die

til you die O til you die


Gonna play some electrified funky music, yeah


Hey wait a minute

Now first it wasn’t easy

Changin’ Rock & Roll and minds

And things were getting shaky

I thought I’d have to leave it behind

But now its so much better

it’s so much better

I’m funking out in every way

But I’ll never lose that feelin’

no I won’t

Of how I learned my lesson that day


When they were

Dancin’ and singin’

and movin’ to the groovin’

And just when it hit me somebody turned around and shouted

Play that funky music white boy

Play that funky music right

Play that funky music white boy

Lay down that boogie and play that funky music till you die

Till you die

oh till you die


They shouted play that funky music

Play that funky music

Play that funky music

Gotta keep on playin’

funky music

Play that funky music

Play that funky music

Play that funky music

Play that funky music

Play that funky music

Play that funky music

Play that funky music
