Hey, give it to me now
Yeah, hey
Yeah, once I was a boogie singer
Playing 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 feel so low
Then I just started quickly
(Yes it did)

To disco down and check out the show
Ya they were dancin'
And singin'
And movin' 2 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 the boogie
And play that funky music till you die
(till you die)
(uh huh, yeah yeah)
I tried to understand this ohh I thought that they were outta there minds,
How could I be so foolish? To not see I was the one behind,
And still I kept on fightin,
Oh losin every step of the way, some day I must go back there
(got to go back there)
And check to see if things still the same
And they was 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)
(oooo till you die)

Now first it wasn't easy
Changin rock 'n' roll and minds
And things were gettin shaky
I thought I'd have to leave it behind
But now its so much better
(its so much better)
I'm Funkin out in every way
I'll never lose that feelin
Of how I learned my lesson that day

Yeah,
They were dancin'
And singin'
And movin' 2 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 the boogie
And play that funky music till you die
(till ya die, oooh till ya die)
They shouted play that funky music
(play that funky music)
Play that funky music
(got to keep on playin funky music)
Play that funky music...
