Give Up The Funk
Parliament Lyrics


Tear the roof off, we're gonna tear the roof off the mother, sucker
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
Tear the roof off, we're gonna tear the roof off the mother, sucker
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

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

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

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

La la la la la
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo, ow!

La la la la la
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo, ow!

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

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

La la la la la
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo, ow!

La la la la la
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo, ow!

We're gonna turn this mother out

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

Ow, we want the funk
