Hey
Do it now
Yeah hey

Yeah, once I was a boogie singer
Playin' in a rock n' roll band
I never had no problems, yeah
Burnin' down the one night stands
And everything around me, yeah
Got to start to feelin' so low
And I decided quicklyyes, I did
To disco down and check out the show

Yeah, they were dancin' and singin'
and movin' to the groovin'
And just when it hit me somebody
turned around and shouted

Play that funky music white boy
Play that funky music right
Play that funky music white boy
Lay down that boogie and
play that funky music till you die
(Hey,hey) till you die
Yeah, yeah

Well, I tried to understand this
Yeah, huh, I thought that they were
Out of their minds
How could I be so foolish, How could I
Tonight's the hours, the one behind
So still I kept on fightin
Wow, loosin' every step of the way
(Yeah, what'd you Do?)
I said, I must go back there
Got to go back
And check to see if things still the same

Yeah, they were dancin' and singin'
and movin' to the groovin'
And just when it hit me somebody
turned around and shouted

Play that funky music white boy
Play that funky music right
Play that funky music white boy
Lay down that boogie and
play that funky music till you die
Till you die
(Yeah) Wow, till you die

(Come on
Play some electrified funky music)
Hey, wait a minute

Now first it wasn't easy
Changin' rock n' roll and minds
And things were getting shaky
I thought I'd have to leave it behind
Oh, but now its so much better
It's so much better
I'm funkin out in ev-er-y way
But-I'll never lose that feelin'
No I won't
Of how I learned my lesson that day

When they were dancin' and singin'
and movin' to the groovin'
And just when it hit me somebody
turned around and shouted

Play that funky music white boy
Play that funky music right
Play that funky music white boy
Lay down that boogie and play
that funky music till you die
Till you die
Oh, till you die

(They shouted, Play that funky music)
Play that funky music
(Play that funky music)
Got to keep on
Play that funky music
(Play that funky music)
PL--AY that funky music
(Play that funky music)
Wanna take ya higha now

Play that funky music white boy
Play that funky music right, yeah
Play that funky music white boy
Play that funky music right, yeah
Play that funky music white boy
Play that funky music right, yeah
