Oh, funky, funky but chic
Oh, funky, funky but chic
Funky, funky but chic
You funky but, funky but
Alright, alright, alright

Got a pair of shoes, yeah, somebody gave me
Mama thinks I look pretty fruitiful in jeans, I feel rockin'

I don't wear nothing not too fussy or neat
I just want something to be able to walk down your street
Hey, come on, baby, let's get on down to the boutique
Let's bring back something that's funky but chic, I say

Funky, funky but chic
Funky, funky but chic

I get down in any neighborhood
I swear that my friends will take me
The people that are out itch and ditch
I swear they gonna break me

Yeah, take me
I fly just to get downtown, I swear where everybody's crazy
And when I fly on down, next street them girls stop actin' lazy
And I said

I don't wear nothing not too fussy or neat
I just want someday to be able to fly down your street
Hey, dis-donc baby, o est le boutique?
Let's bring back something that's funky but chic, I say

Funky, funky but chic
Oh, funky, funky but chic
Oh, funky, funky but chic
You funky but, funky but
Alright, alright, alright

Girl
I got a neat old car, come on, baby, let's get driving 'round
I got a '56 Mercedes Benz I have painted cocoa brown
Yes, brown

I don't drive nothing not too fussy or neat
I just want someday to be able to drive down your street
Hey, beep beep baby, let's get on down to the boutique
Let's bring back something that's funky but chic, I say

Funky, funky but
Oh, chic
Funky, funky but
Et trs chic
Funky, funky but
Oh, what chic

You funky but, funky but
Alright, alright, alright, alright
Alright, alright, alright

Got a pair of shoes, yeah, somebody gave me
(Funky, funky but chic)
Mama thinks I look pretty fruitiful in jeans, I feel rockin'
(Funky, funky but chic)

I don't wear nothing not too fussy or neat
I just want someday to be able to walk down your street
Hey, get out of bed, baby, let's get on down to the boutique
Let's bring back something that is funky but chic
