Who says a jazz band can't play dance music?
Who says a rock band can't play funky?
Who says a funk band can't play rock? Oh yeah
We're gonna play some funk so loud
We're gonna rock 'n' roll the crowd
Just watch them dance, watch them dance

We really love to play
We're in the mood to sing, yeah
Won't you take the time to get the music on your mind?
We'll release you from the bind, yeah, yeah

We've been around for such a while
Be kinda hard not to have a style
When times get slower by the mile
We relax and wear a great big smile
You can count my teeth one, two, three, four, five

People think 'cause we are here
Our jazz ran out, the ship won't steer no more
We picked up on the rhythm here
If you just take a toot and have a beer
We're gonna make it clear

We're gonna rock 'n' roll the crowd
Just watch them dance, watch them dance

We never take a chance
Music is our one romance, yeah
May I have this dance?
Give it a chance
