"Funky Tonight" as written by and John Charles Wiltshire Butler....
Girl I don't wanna argue
I don't wanna fight
And if there's something wrong
Yes you know I'm gonna try to make it right
I love you, you love me
We be one family tonight
So get right over here
Let's get don col' funky tonight

Girl you are my queen
And there ain't no doubt about it
And if you want I'll tell the world
Yes you know I'll shout it
The way you walk, talk, move yeah girl get me high as a kite
So get right over here let's get down col' funky tonight
Tonight

What's your name?
Let's go back to when we first met
Back in 1999 'preciate
Before you knew I was yours and you mine, yeah

Gonna turn the lights down low
Put the stereo on
Put on our favourite record by
Ella Fitz and Louis Armstrong
And take you to the living room dancefloor
And I'll hold you tight
I guarantee you and me gonna get down funky tonight
I guarantee you and me gonna get down funky tonight

I guarantee you and me gonna get down funky tonight

What's your name?
Let's go back to when we first met
Back in 1999 'preciate
Before you knew I was yours and I knew you were mine
What's your name?
Let's go back to when we first met
Back in 1999 'preciate
Before you knew I was yours and you mine, yeah

    General CommentFunky can also be interpreted as smelly, and that's what I believe this song is about.

    General CommentI wish I could digitally remove john's voice from every track he sings on. His lyrics and vocal phrasing make me cringe. But he's a goddam wizard with the guitar!!

    General Commenti think its about having an argument with your partner and focusing on the things that brought you together in the first place.
    And having lots of make up sex. Of course

    General Commentjohn said recently it's about going thru the motions, and trying to recapture the spark of when they first met. hence the chorus.
    something along those lines anyway

    General Commentcouple of fix-ups. "So get right over here let's get down col' funky tonight" and "put on your favourite record by Ella Fitz and Louis Armstrong".

    And oh yeah, it's obvious what he's talking about. John's always straight-up with his lyrics.

    General Commentjb's not always straight up about his lyrics. for instance, look at Use To Get High. that song is about the government. not actually getting high.
