What?
Everybody over there
What?
Do you want that funky soul, yo?
Come on, hit it
They don't want music, they don't know how to use it
All they want, a boom boom boom boom

Hey y'all, John Coltraine, he plays the sax
Me, myself I love to max
Up in the studio laying tracks
Burn it on the CD, melt the wax

Spinnin' it and now I'm feeling fine
'Coz daily music's on my mind
And I feel mellow
When I watch the girl play the cello

Hello to all my fellow peers in here for the quality
Music quality, yeah
That'll be the focus in the top pick of the day
So pass the peas like we used to say

Pass the beats like they used to say
Pass the phunk like they used to say
That's my joint like we used to say
Syncopation the true school way

I don't know what you came to do
I came to drop the phunk on you
Depends on that sonic sound
But you know what?

They don't want music, they don't want music
They just want, a boom boom boom boom boom
Boom boom boom boom

They don't want music, they don't know how to use it
They don't want music, they don't want music
They don't want music, they don't know how to use it
The good back horn

They don't want music, they don't know how to use it
All they want is, a boom boom boom boom
Boom boom boom, boom boom boom

Oo, lala aw wee wee
Nowadays music is all about a fee
The soul is caged no bits not free
Unless the rhyme was rocked by me

I got the balls to bang
Yeah, steady, just doing my thang
I just do it, I just do it you know
My momma said to do what you know

So I'ma do what I know
James Brown gave me the fluid
That means a baby could do it
The Peas will do it so

'Coz I do it, do it, do it
Get up on the stage and release my fluid
Do my thing, do it through the music
Phunkafied and therapeutic

I don't know what you came to do
I came to drop the phunk on you
Depends on that sonic sound
But you know what?

They don't want music, they don't want music
They just want, a boom boom boom boom boom
Boom boom boom boom

They don't want music, they don't know how to use it
They don't want music, they don't want music
They don't want music, they don't know how to use it
The good bad horn

They don't want music, they don't know how to use it
All they want, a boom boom boom boom

Wait a minute
You got to rock with the phunk, if you wanna have a good time
You got to rock with the phunk, if you wanna have a good time
You got to roll with the phunk, if you wanna have a good time
Say it now, you got to roll with the phunk, if you wanna have a good time
You got to roll with the phunk now, if you wanna be sweet and fine
Hey hey hey

Rock with the phunk, if you gonna have a good time
You got to roll with the phunk, if you wanna have a good time
Wait a minute
A woman that'll phunk your horn yo, gimme that phunky horn
Play that phunky horn now, gimme that phunky horn
Gimme that phunky horn now, gimme that phunky horn
Hey hey hey

You got to rock with the phunk, if you wanna have a good time
You've got to roll with the phunk, if you wanna have a good time
You got to dance with the phunk, if you wanna be sweet and fine
I said, I like to dancin' with the phunk, if you wanna be sweet and fine
Hey hey hey
You've got to shake with the phunk, if you wanna have a good time
Shaking shaking shaking with the phunk, if you wanna have a good time

[Incomprehensible]

Bring that phunky horn, say it, gimme that phunky horn
Well, I need that phunky horn, now say it, gimme that phunky horn
Play that phunky horn now, gimme that phunky horn
We need it, a break down, a break down, a break, get down

Dance everybody, move your body through the music
Get it started, get into it, come on everybody do it
You've got to dance through the music
People doing what you're doing
People grooving with the music
You've got to roll with the phunk

You got to roll with the phunk, if you're wanna have a good time
R-O-double-L keep rolling with the phunk, if you're wanna have a good time
And roll, to a phunky place, I'm going, where?
To a, to a, to a phunky phunky place
I'm going, to a phunky place, yes I am
I'll be there, I'll be there, I'll be there, I'll be there, come on
It's phunky, phunk, phunk, phunk phunky
