Alvin & The Chipmunks – Play That Funky Music lyrics

Hey, do it now
Yeah hey

Hey
Once there was a boogie singer
Playin' in a rock & Roll Band
And never had no problems
Burnin' down the one night stands
Well everything around me, yeah
Got to stop to feelin' so low
And I decided quickly, yes 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 chipmunk
Play that funky music right
Play that funky music chipmunk
Lay down that boogie and play that funky music till you die
Till you die? Yeah, uh huh

I tried to understand this
I thought that they were out of their minds
How could I be so foolish, how could I
To not see I was the one behind
So still I kept on fighting
Losing every step of the way
I said I must go back there, gotta 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 chipmunk
Play that funky music right
Play that funky music chipmunk
Lay down the boogie and play that funky music til you die
Till ya die? Yeah, oh till ya die

Gonna play that electrified funky music now

Spoken:
Hey wait a minute
Now first it wasn't easy
Changin' Rock & 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 funking out in every way
But I'll never lose that feelin'
Ya know 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 chipmunk
Play that funky music right
Play that funky music chipmunk
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
Gotta keep on playin'
Funky music
Play that funky music
