"Le Freak" as written by and Bernard/rodgers Edwards....
Ah Freak out! Le Freak, c'est Chic

Have you heard about the new dance craze?
Listen to us, I'm sure you'll be amazed
Big fun to be had by everyone
It's up to you, It surely can be done
Young and old are doing it, I'm told
Just one try, and you too will be sold
It's called Le Freak! They're doing it night and day
Allow us, we'll show you the way

Ah Freak out! Le Freak, c'est Chic

All that pressure got you down
Has your head spinning all around
Feel the rhythm, check the ride
Come on along and have a real good time
Like the days of stopping at the Savoy
Now we freak, oh what a joy
Just come on down, to fifty four
Find a spot out on the floor

Ah Freak out! Le Freak, c'est Chic

Now Freak!
I said Freak!
Now Freak!

All that pressure got you down
Has your head spinning all around
Feel the rhythm, check the ride
Come on along and have a real good time
Like the days of stopping at the Savoy
Now we freak, oh what a joy
Just come on down, to fifty four
Find a spot out on the floor

Ah Freak out! Le Freak, c'est Chic

    General CommentI heard an interview where Nile Rodgers said it got written as a result of not getting into Studio 54. Originally the lyrics weren't 'Aaah Freak Out', but 'Oooh F*$^ Off', which related to the door policy. Once they decided the song was funky, they realised they were going to have to change the words.

    General CommentDullthud is right about the meaning. As for my personal opinion, this has to be one of the ULTIMATE disco songs, right up there at the top with the Bee Gees' "Stayin' Alive."

    General CommentIt makes sense since the bottom line of the song wants to make the dance floor universal and drag away the wannabe poshness clientele in Studio 54.

    "Big fun, to be had by everyone It's up to you, it surely can be done Young and old are doing it, I'm told "

    To review as well Amanda Lear's "Fashion pack (Studio 54)"
    - "who is in? who is out? c'mon tell me! tell me! tell me!

    General CommentNearly every lyrics website lists the lyric as "Like the days of stopping at the Savoy," but it most surely is "Stompin' at the Savoy" -- a reference to both the song of that name, as well as the Savoy Ballroom.

    The Savoy Ballroom was one of the leading nightclubs in Harlem during the jazz era, along with the Roseland Ballroom and the Cotton Club, and unlike many of its competitors, was not segregated.

    And I also heard the same origin story as Dulthud.
