Yo, this is mood control
(Yo, ho)
Saying you might as well pay attention
(This is mood control)
We can't afford free speech
(Mood, mood, mood, someone's funkin' with the mood)

Mood control is designed to render funkable ideas
Brought to you by the makers of Mr. Prolong
Better known as Urge Overkill
The pimping of the pleasure principle

Oh, but we'll be pecking lightly
Like a woodpecker with a headache
'Cause it's cheaper to funk than it is to pay attention, you dig?
Huck-a-buck, A-Lo and behold
Someone's funking with the mood control

When you're taking every kind of pill
(Deprogram, program)
Nothing seems to ever cure your ill
(Peck me lightly, like a woodpecker with a headache)

When you're taking every kind of pill
(Funk the nonprofit organization)
Nothing seems to ever cure your ill
Where do you get your funk from?
(Where do you get that funk from?)

Hey, name that feeling
Would you trade your funk for what's behind the third door?
The big deal, heads I win, tail you lose
How do you spell relief?
Huck-a-buck, sucker

When you're taking every kind of pill
(Ho, bigger the headache the bigger the pill)
Nothing seems to ever cure your ill

When you're taking every kind of pill
(You deserve a break today)
Nothing seems to ever cure your ill
(Have it your way)

Where do you get that funk from?
(Ooh, who was that? Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, oh, oh, oh)

The salvation of inspiration is the motivation
Fasten your safety belt
While I take you face-to-face with the nosiest computer I know
(Where do you get that funk from?)

When I count to ten I want you to jump up, stay there
(Yo, ho)
But don't come down till I flash the light
(You deserve a break today, have it your way)
Funk is not domestically produced, ho

There's nothing that the proper attitude won't render funkable
Where do you get your funk from? Funktism, hey

When you're taking every kind of pill
(Mood control)
Nothing seems to ever cure your ill

When you're taking every kind of pill
(Urge Overkill)
Nothing seems to ever cure your ill
(Yeah, ho)

Where did you get that funk from?
(Program)
Where did you get that funk from?
(Deprogram and reprogram)
Heads I win, tail you lose

Would you trade your funk for this?
You deserve a break today, have it your way
A funk a day keeps the nose away, ain't it true?
I ain't gonna hold the lettuce, the pickles or the mustard
(Yo)

Jump up in the air and stay there until I tell you to come down
You deserve a break today, sucker
When I flash the light and drop the J, the count begins, ho

This is mood de control saying pay more attention
For free speech, high finance or just possible funkability
Ho, let the funk begin
Do anybody have change for funk?

(Where do you get your funk from?)
Oh yes, this is heavyweight funk
Put up your dukes, ha, ha
You want to funk around with me? Oh

This is mood de control
(Yo, ho)
The home of the P funk, the Bomb
Mind your wants 'cause there's someone that want your mind

When you're taking every kind of pill
(Bigger the headache the bigger the pill, baby)
Nothing seems to ever cure your ill
(How do you spell relief?)

When you're taking every kind of pill
(The bigger the headache the bigger the pill)
Nothing seems to ever cure your ill
(Ho, this is the big pill)
(Yeah, ho)

Pay attention
Where do you get that funk from?
(They go again, they go again)
You might as well pay attention, free speech is too high

Where do you get that funk from?
(Huck-a-buck, ho, you deserve a break today)
(How do you spell relief?)
Where do you get that funk from?
(Okay, wind me)

Yeah, take it to the bridge, ha, ha, ha
Let's take it to its dukedom
But this is mood control

Funkentelechy
(Program, reprogram, deprogram)
Funkentelechy
(How's your funkentelechy? I'll meet you back at the turnaround)

Funkentelechy
(Right now I think I'll space)
Funkentelechy
(Heavyweight funk)
Funkentelechy
(Rump to rump, we shall get down)
Funkentelechy
(Ho)

Funkentelechy, funkentelechy
(How's your funk?)
Funkentelechy
(How's your funk?)
Funkentelechy
(Ho)

How's your funkentelechy?
How's your funkentelechy?
How's your funkentelechy?
How's your funkentelechy?

(How's your funkentelechy?)
When you're taking every kind of pill
(How's your funkentelechy?)
Nothing ever cure your ill

(How's your funkentelechy?)
When you're taking every kind of pill
(How's your funkentelechy?)
Nothing ever cure your ill

(Where do you get your funk from?)
Ho, you're in the presence of your future
You deserve a break today, have it your way

I ain't gonna hold the lettuce, the pickles or the mustard
A funk a day keep the nose away
Mind your wants 'cause someone wants your mind
Funk is a nonprofit organization

Peck me lightly, like a woodpecker with a headache
'Cause funk is not domestically produced
It is responsive to your mood, you can score it any day
On W E F U N K, we funk, ho

Name that feeling, baby
This is mood de control
Program, reprogram and deprogram

Funkentelechy
(How's your funkentelechy?)
Funkentelechy
(You might as well pay for attention, free speech is too high)

Funkentelechy
(We are sexually probing, funk or else hold your peace
Funkentelechy
(Funfunky possibilities arrive for the makers of Urge Overkill)
Funkentelechy
(And not the funky funny bone)

Funkentelechy
(You deserve a break today so name that feeling)
Funkentelechy
(Would you trade your funk for what's behind the third door?)
Funkentelechy)
(The big deal, heads I win, tails you lose, I don't know)

Funkentelechy
(For there's nothing that funk will not render funkable)
Funkentelechy
(This is mood decontrol, urgin' you to funk on, yo, ho)

Funkentelechy
(How's your funkentelechy?)
Funkentelechy
(Ideas brought to you by the makers of Urge Overkill)

Do not respond, this has been a test
And once again the pleasure principle has been rescued
With the aid of the funk
This is Mr. Prolong

(How's your funkentelechy?)
And in doing so
(How's your funkentelechy?)
Freed the possibilities of funk beyond compare
(How's your funkentelechy?)
Program, deprogram, reprogram
(How's your funkentelechy?)

When you're taking every kind of pill
(How do you spell relief?)
Nothing seems to ever cure your ill
(You deserve a break today, sucker)

When you're taking every kind of pill
(Ha, ha, ha, ha)
Nothing seems to ever cure your ill
(Have it your way, this is the doctor)

Nothing seems to ever cure your ill
(Saying, the bigger the headache the bigger the pill)
When you're taking every kind of pill
(What's happening? What's happening?)

Who jammin'? What's that?
How's your funk?
(How's your funk?)
You know what's that?
(How's your funk?)

Funkentelechy
(Sucker)
Funkentelechy
(I want you to jump up in the air
And stay there until I tell you to come down)
Funkentelechy
(Check your funk pressure)

Funkentelechy
(Fly on)
Funkentelechy
(Ain't nothing but a party, baby)
Funkentelechy
(Oh)

How's your funkentelechy?
How's your funkentelechy?
How's your funkentelechy?
Heads I win, tails you lose
