Funky Kingston
Toots and The Maytals Lyrics


Everybody, give it to me huh
Hey Hey Hey
I want you to believe every word I say
I want you to believe every thing I do
I said music is what I've got to give
And I've got to find some way to make it
Music is what I've got baby
I want you to come on and shake it
Shake it shake it baby
Oh yeah hey
Na na na...
Oh yeah..na na na

Funky (x3)
Funky Kingston, is what I've got for you
Oh yeah
Funky Kingston, yeah is what I've got for you
Funky Kingston
Oh yeah

Lemme hear your funky guitar
Yo reggae
Hear the piano, stick it to me

Watch me now
You watch me now
Playing from east to west yeah
I just play from north to south, yeah
I love black America
People keep on asking me for
Funky Kingston
But I ain't got none
Somebody take it away from me

There are few words that can even describe what is on this track: it transcends every category: it is unmatched by any track ever recorded by anyone: the best dance song ever written......

He may have been influenced just a little by James Brown...
