Hey ?do it now ?yeah hey

Yeah, once I was a boogie singer playin' in a rock 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 thereGot to go backand 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 minuteNow 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 betterIt's so much betterI'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
Play that funky music white boy
Play that funky music right, yeah
