Funky Song

This song is by Low Profile and appears on the album We're In This Together (1989).

Yo Aladdin, make sure my microphone is on
No wait a minute - hm-hm, now let me check my tone
*Before I start rockin* Yo, what we're callin this homes?
*Ain't nothin' goin' on...* word
Well, if it ain't nothin' but a funky song, I'm in it to win it
Properly fitted, so let's get with it
My lyrical format breaks and bends the rules
For those of you who wanna battle my crew
I come from the family down with Priority
Peace to N.W.A and Eazy-E
And to the homies everywhere that's down with Low Pro
Y'all want funk? Yo, yo, now here we go
Can I come on, or should I come off smooth and dope?
Spectacular to make a amateur choke
You see, it's gotta be funky, doper than the average funk song
That's why I didn't come off strong
I chose a laid back jack and watched the others swoop and holler
They try to kick funk, but yo, why did they bother
This is pure funk, so y'all sing along
*Ain't nothin' goin' on but a funky song*

Funk - the word for the day that I speak upon
It's like a drug, you could say that I'm sprung
Every time that I speak I pertain to a funky crowd
Turn up the radio, make sure that it's loud
The woofers are bumpin, the tweeders and tweetin, the bass is kickin'
Doub's about to start the rippin'
All these MC's sound alike screamin off of funky tracks
Got the nerve to put the garbage on wax
Artificial MC's, I break 'em with ease, they get dunked
They all lack the true meanin' of funk
A street hardcore sample with a positive tip
This here is so funky, all I need is a mothership
A pair of twelves and a mic in my hand, see
So I can get busy for those down with me
Have you yellin' my name while I pertain to the brain
'Cause when it comes to funk, I'm leavin' permanent stains
So change arrange and yo, I ain't a new jack, gee
Aladdin gave me the mic, so I could speak my piece
Funk, the universal language, now can you swing it?
Some tried, but came softer than a Danish
Dunkenhein rappers is soft, they can't compete
Now here's a dope record tooken out of the backstreets
Y'all know the words, so yo, sing along
*Ain't nothin' goin' on but a funky song*

So now we come to the final verse of the song
I came to short-circuit, so go and clap along
Wave your hands in the air while you shout and go off
But keep away from the stage, because you might get tossed
Yo, now here's somethin' that I know that you like
Somethin' funky, but yet though, it's gotta be hype
So sing along, even though when I'm gone
*Ain't nothin' goin' on...*
*...But a funky song*
