Funky street ( Atlantic records 45 R.P.M. )

Funky street / Arthur Conley

 

One used to be the shotgun

Two used to be the bad boogaloo

Three used to be the swing shingaling

Four used to be the funky four fingers

 

Down on Funky Street, diggin' the funky beat

Down on Funky Street, that's where the grooviest people meet

From Atlanta, Georgia, goin' on down to the border

Every boy is dancin' with somebody's daughter

 

Groovin' in the city, got to get down with it

Down on Funky Street we`re diggin that funky beat

Down on Funky Street, that's where the grooviest people meet

 

Jump up and down and move all around

Bend your knees half way down to the ground

Move it to the west and to the south

Turn it around and kick your partner in the mouth

 

Down on Funky Street, diggin the funky beat

Down on Funky Street that's where the grooviest people meet

Sweet soul music is in the air

People are comin' from everywhere

Comin' from the east, comin' from the west

Dancin with the one they love the best

 

One, c'mon everybody, you got to hit the floor

Three, c'mon baby and go with me

Two used be the bad boogaloo

One, got to have just a little fun

 

Down on Funky Street, diggin the funky beat

Down on funky street, diggin the funky beat

Down on ............................
