Grow Some Funk Of Your Own Lyrics

by Elton John

Yeah, I looked at my watch and it said quarter to five
The headlines screamed that I was still alive
I couldn't understand it I thought I died last night

Oh, I dreamed I'd been in a border town
In a little cantina that the boys had found
I was desperate to dance just to dig the local sounds

When along came a Senorita
She looked so good that I had to meet her
I was ready to approach her with my English charm

When her brass knuckled boyfriend grabbed me by the arm
Oh, he was so macho
And he said "Grow some funk of your own, Amigo"
Grow some funk of your own
We no like to with the gringo fight
But there might be a death in Mexico tonight

If you can't grow some funk of your own, Amigo
Grow some funk of your own
Take my advice take the next flight
And grow your funk, grow your little funk at home

I admit the situation was ridiculous

Well, I looked for support from the rest of my friends
For their vanishing trick they get ten out of ten
I knelt to pray just to see if he would comprehend

But I dreamed I'd been in a border town
In a little cantina that the boys had found
I was desperate to dance just to dig the local sounds

When along came a Senorita
She looked so good that I had to meet her
I was ready to approach her with my English charm

When her brass knuckled boyfriend grabbed me by the arm
Oh, and it hurt so much
And he said, "Grow some funk of your own, Amigo"
Grow some funk of your own
Well we no like to with the gringo fight
But there might be a death in Mexico tonight

And if you can't grow some funk of your own, Amigo
Grow some funk of your own
You'll take my advice and you can take the next flight
Grow your funk, grow your funk at home

I grow the funk
Yeah I grow the funk at my home
I grow the funk
I grow the funk at my home
I grow the funk at my home
At my home
At my home
At my home
I grow the funk
I grow the funk
