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!

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

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!

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

@Splatter Fodder When I was in college, I went to what turned out to be Nigerians' dance party at Parliament-Funkadelic. I will always remember it as the day I realized I dance like a white person.

James Torti

Do you know the math of this song? 50 years? Check out Mozart, then we can talk about TIME.

Even though I grew up with this music (Thank God!) I especially love reading the comments of those young people who didn't and who are discovering it in the 90's and today. May you love it and enjoy it today as much as we did yesterday!

I’m in college now! A freshman and I know some old school better then people 3 times my age. I feel like I’ve grown up in the same era cause it was all I listened to as a kid.

Michelle Watkins

Seeing them in person was definitely an experience!😂❤

Jill Williams

Yes ma’am, I grew up all the way in the funk era. I’m a 1968 baby and am currently 52 y/o. Yes ma’am, know all about it.
