"Give Up The Funk
(Tear The Roof Off The Sucker)"
Tear the roof off, we're gonna tear the roof off the mother, sucker
Tear the roof off the sucker
(x4)

You've got a real type of thing going down, gettin' down
There's a whole lot of rhythm going round
(x2)

Ow, we want the funk
Give up the funk
Ow, we need the funk
We gotta have that funk
(x2)

La la la la la
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo, owww!
(x2)

You've got a real type of thing going down, gettin' down
There's a whole lot of rhythm going round
(x2)

Ow, we want the funk
Give up the funk
Ow, we need the funk
We gotta have that funk
(x2)

La la la la la
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo, owww!
(x2)

We're gonna turn this mother out (x2)

You've got a real type of thing going down, gettin' down
There's a whole lot of rhythm going round
(x4)

Ow, we want the funk
Give up the funk
Ow, we need the funk (let us in we'll tear this mother out {after 2nd &
3rd})
We gotta have that funk
(x7)

Ow, we want the funk (we're gonna turn this mother out)
Give up the funk
Ow, we need the funk (we're gonna turn this mother out)
We gotta have that funk
(x2)

Ow, we want the funk
Give up the funk
Ow, we need the funk (let us in we'll tear this mother out {after 2nd &
3rd})
We gotta have that funk
(x2)

We want the funk
Give up the funk
We need the funk
We gotta have that funk
(x3)

La la la la la
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo, owww!
(x2)

You've got a real type of thing going down, gettin' down (x2)
There's a whole lot of rhythm going down
You've got a real type of thing going down, gettin' down
There's a whole lot of rhythm going down

Ow, we want the funk
Give up the funk
Ow, we need the funk (let us in we'll tear this mother out {after 2nd &
3rd})

    Funky ball of titties that fell from outer space that the guy from parliament made milk shakes from after squeezing the delicious funk juice from the titties to give them their amazing funk

    Mapleheart moonsong-
    to me, it means that they want good music for a good party. You can't exactly translate "let us in we'll turn this mother out", but it sounds like a party of some sort. Mostly, i second unregistered-january 10, 2012 "you can't explain it, you have to feel it". Because you can't come up with an explanation that will suit everyone's opinion. I think this is a great song. I'm fourteen, but i listen to the music my dad grew up listening to. Modern music needs more of this style. God bless parliament.

    Funk precludes life. Live funk, die funk, and if you're lucky, one day you will be reincarnated as that sweet funk
