I'm getting ready for the function at the junction
Brother, you'd better come on right now
Because everybody's gonna be there
Got people comin' from everywhere

We got Ling Ting Tong from China
Long Tall Sally from Carolina
We got 007, the private eye
And he's bringin' all the guys from 'I Spy'

Tell one, tell all
We gonna have a ball

Tell 'em 'bout the function at the junction
Sister, you'd better come on right now
Talkin' 'bout that function at the junction
Brother, you'd better come on right now

We serving egg foo yung and barbecue
We got chicken dumplings and kidney stew
We gonna make big fun till the break of the dawn
I'ma shake your tailfeather, shoot it [Incomprehensible] run

Hold a shotgun on the rooster, dare him to crow
Tell anybody sleepin', say get out on that floor

Tell one, tell all
We gonna have a ball

Tell 'em bout the function at the junction
Sister, you'd better come on right now
Tell 'em 'bout that function at the junction
Brother, you'd better come on right now

We got soul brothers, Jitterbugs, hip cats with crazy hats
Pretty girls with pretty smiles, all decked out in the latest styles
Memphis Slim and Guitar Jim, Betty Boop and ooo-boop-e-doop
Mohair Sam from Alabama, Minnesota Fats from Hobo Flats

Gravitatin' hip-shakin' cuties now
Talkin' 'bout some fascinatin', devastatin' beauties now
They all be gathering here from far and near

For the function at the junction
Sister, you'd better come on right now
Tell 'em 'bout that function at the junction
Brother, you'd better come on right now

I'm getting' ready for the function at the junction
Sister, you'd better come on right now
Tell 'em 'bout that function at the junction
Brother, you'd better come on right now
For the function at the junction
