James Brown, Iggy Pop, Jesus Christ and Red Foxx
I slide uptown to the broadway sound
Like King Kong, I wanna mess around
Gangster funk came right on time
Girl in the sharkskin looks real fine
Gangster funk got a beat like this
Stand in line, do the junkie twist

Al Capone, Machine Gun Slim,
William Burroughs and Subway Jim
I slap the bass, I funk the place
I bang the drum, now gimme some

My clothes are clean, my cash is long
King Kong, King Kong, bang a gong
Monkey see and monkey do
New York City and Hollywood too

Go ahead baby, do a twist, do a pill,
D-d-d-d’ya think I like that kinda thrill
I’m gangster funk now shake it up and shake it down
Now monkey ‘round in monkey town

James Brown, Iggy Pop, Jesus Christ and Red Foxx
I slide uptown to the Broadway sound
Like King Kong I wanna mess around
I slap the bass, I funk the place
I bang the drum, now gimme some

I’m gangster funk, now shoot the funk
I’m gangster funk, I shoot the funk

Gangster funk got a beat like this
Stand in line, do the junkie twist
Gangster funk got a beat like this
Stand in line, do the junkie twist

Gangster funk!
