Hey do give it to me now
Yeah, hey

Yeah, Once I was a boogie singer
Playing in a rock-and-roll band
I never had no problems (Yeah)

Rolling down the one night stands
And everything around me (Yeah)

I've got to stop the feeling, so move (Yeah)
I've decided so quickly (Yes I did)
To disco down and check out the show

Yeah, and they were dancing
And singing
And grooving to the movement

And just then
And hipping
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 until you die (until you die)

Yeah, yeah
