[x4:]
Tear the roof off, we're gonna tear the roof off the mother, sucker
Tear the roof off the sucker

You've got a real type of thing going down, gettin' down
There's a whole lot of rhythm going round

You've got a real type of thing going down, gettin' down
There's a whole lot of rhythm going round

[Chorus: (x2)]
Ow, we want the funk
Give up the funk
Ow, we need the funk
We gotta have that funk

La la la la la
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo, owww!

La la la la la
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo, owww!

You've got a real type of thing going down, gettin' down
There's a whole lot of rhythm going round

You've got a real type of thing going down, gettin' down
There's a whole lot of rhythm going round

[Chorus x2]

La la la la la
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo, owww!

La la la la la
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo, owww!

We're gonna turn this mother out
We're gonna turn this mother out

[x4:]
You've got a real type of thing going down, gettin' down
There's a whole lot of rhythm going round

[Chorus x7]

[x2:]
Ow, we want the funk (we're gonna turn this mother out)
Give up the funk
Ow, we need the funk (we're gonna turn this mother out)
We gotta have that funk

[Chorus x3]

[x3:]
We want the funk
Give up the funk
We need the funk
We gotta have that funk

La la la la la
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo, owww!

La la la la la
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo, owww!

You've got a real type of thing going down, gettin' down
You've got a real type of thing going down, gettin' down
There's a whole lot of rhythm going down
You've got a real type of thing going down, gettin' down
There's a whole lot of rhythm going down

Ow, we want the funk
Give up the funk
Ow, we need the funk (let us in we'll tear this mother out)
