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......

I can’t believe he’s gone. I’ve been loving his music since my boyfriend turned me on to the soundtrack album from “The Harder they come”. I was 16 and although it wasn’t new music, I was hooked on his sound. My neighbors are getting educated in what true Reggae sounds like all ...week. It’s like a healing balm on my soul to get lost in this music during these stressful times. Thank you Toots, Rest In Peace brother.

You just can't help but to move to the beat. The sound has a jagged edge with a smooth easy rhythm. The Dudes got a set of pipes.

Such a great song from an amazing man / group. I've been lucky to see Toots and the Maytalls 5 or 6 times and loved every show. The last time, a few years ago he was close to 70yrs old and hadn't slowed down a bit. He never phones in a show, he works every one. At one show he was wearing a light purple shirt and a dark leather vest. He was working the crowd and having fun with the band and giving it everything. He took off his vest, obviously hot from the effort, and he had sweat so completely under the vest, it looked like he still had it on as the light purple shirt and turned dark and wet matching the vest outline. See him while you can!

Toots and the Maytals have so many classic hits that everyone knows...and many don't realize how active and groundbreaking the group was. Much love and respect to Toots and the Maytals!

Mystic Man

That golden voice is something special. Rest in Peace Mr Hibert. You will always be in our hearts.
