Rare Earth – Big John Is My Name lyrics
Well I like what I do... And I... Do what I like
What I do? I play the funky music... Repeat
Some of my friends smoke a little dope I gotta tell you
Some of my friends tootin up coke
Well different strokes for different folks... But me?
Playin funky music all night long... That's what turns
Me on...

I might not ever make the big time yeah yeah yeah yeah
Cause honky tonk joints that's my style
Hey in a one bulb lighted room... Where the women wear
50 cent perfume...

Big John is my name... Playin funky music is my claim to

From the big city... Me and my band specialize in the
Nitty gritty...

Played my music in every honky tonk joint from maine to
Soulful folks ain't got no shoes... Smellin like all
Out doors...
I got invited to the white house but I had to turn it
Down cause
This here band can't stand what saddity folks are
Puttin down...

I might...

Big John...

I want to know can you get down... All the way
