Brand New Funk

Get down
Brand new funk, funk
Get down
Brand new funk, funk
Get down
Brand new funk, funk
Get down
Brand new funk, funk

It's new, it's out of the ordinary
It's rather extraordinary so yo bust this commentary
A literary genius and a superior beat creator
Have come together and we made a
Musical composition which we think is a remedy
To cure all the dance floors that's empty
You wanna dance? We got what you want
Jazzy Jeff and Fresh Prince bustin' out with the brand new funk
(Get down)

Get down
Brand new funk, funk
Get down
Brand new funk, funk
Get down
Brand new funk, funk
Funky

It was kind of an accident, the way that it happened
One day I was rappin', and on the beat, Jeff was backin' me up
And all of a sudden, he brought in a cut
And I dropped my microphone and said, "What the"
Hold up, Jeff, wait a minute, play it
He just smiled and said, "Yeah Def ain't it?"
It was, funky
It made wanna, get, get down
And we knew almost at once it was the brand new funk

So we continued to listen to it
And we knew it was def when I started rappin' to it
So I gave a hi-five to Jeff
And without hesitation popped in my cassette
I took it home that night, and analyzed it
Rewound the tape over and over, and memorized it
That Friday, we went to the club
And out and out cold tore it up
(Get down)

You shoulda seen the people dancin' and shakin' and movin' and jumpin'
And spinnin' and clappin', while the beatboxin' was groovin'
And screamin' and yellin' while on the microphone I was flowin'
Fresh rhymes I was showin', the people say, "Yo keep goin'"
So I continued to rock, while Jeff was on the beat box
Special assistance from my homeboy ready rock
People barged just to get up front
To get a bird's eye view of what we call the brand new funk
(Get down)

Get down
Get get down
Get get down
Get get down
(Funky)
Get down
Get get down
Get get down
Get get down
(Funky)

Get down
Get get down
Get get down
Get get down
(Funky)
Get down
Get get down
Get get down

Yo Jeff
Rock the beat
Yo Jeff
Rock the beat
Yo Jeff
Rock the beat
Beat

Yo Jeff
Rock the beat
Yo Jeff
Rock the beat
Yo Jeff
Rock the beat with your hands

Now get funky with the beat
Now turn it all around

The most original, amazing, astounding, miraculous
Remarkable, startling, sensational, stupendous
Music, that has ever been created
Is ours but believe me it was complicated
But we have done it, so now we can breathe
A long awaited sigh of relief
This isn't a publicity stunt
It's the raw untouched, pure, hard brand new funk

Rock the beat
(Get down)
Rock the beat
(Brand new funk, funk)
Rock the beat
(Get down)
Rock the beat
(Brand new funk, funk)
Rock the beat
(Get down)
Rock the beat
(Brand new funk, funk)
(Funk)

Rock the beat with your hands
Rock the beat
(Get down)
Rock the beat
(Brand new funk, funk)
Rock the beat
(Get down)
Rock the beat
(Brand new funk, funk)

Rock the beat
(Get down)
Rock the beat
(Brand new funk, funk)
Rock the beat
(Get down)
Rock the beat
(Brand new funk, funk)
