    Play That Funky Music



    Hey, Once I was a funky singer playin' in a Rock and Roll Band
    I never had no problems, yeah
    Burnin' down one night stands
    And everything around me, yeah
    Got to stop to feelin' so low And I decided quickly (Yes I did)
    To disco down and check out the show
    Yeah, they was dancin' and singin' and movin' to the groovin'
    And just when it hit me somebody turned around and shouted
    Play that funky music white boy
    Play that funky music right
    Play that funky music white boy
    Lay down the boogie and play that funky music till you die
    Till you die
    Oh ya, ya

    I tried to understand this
    I thought that they were out of their minds
    How could I be so foolish (How could I)
    To not see I was the one behind
    So still I kept on fighting
    Well, loosing every step of the way
    I said, I must go back there (I got to go back)
    And check to see if things still the same
    Yeah they was dancin' and singin' and movin' to the groovin'
    And just when it hit me somebody turned around and shouted
    Play that funky music white boy
    Play that funky music right
    Play that funky music white boy
    Lay down the boogie and play that funky music till you die
    Till you die, ya
    Till you die

    (Gonna play that electified funky music, yeah)

    (Hey, wait a minute)
    Now first it wasn't easy
    Changin' Rock and Roll and minds and things were getting shaky
    I thought I'd have to leave it behind
    But now its so much better (it's so much better)
    I'm funking out in every way
    But I'll never lose that feelin' (no I won't)
    Of how I learned my lesson that day
    When they were dancin' and singin' and movin' to the groovin'
    And just when it hit me somebody turned around and shouted
    Play that funky music white boy
    Play that funky music right
    Play that funky music white boy
    Lay down the boogie and play that funky music till you die
    Till you die
    Oh' till you die

    They shouted play that funky music
    (Play that funky music)
    Play that funky music
    (You Gotta keep on playin' funky music)
    Play that funky music
    (Play that funky music)
    Play that funky music
    (Come and take you higher, ya)
    Play that funky music white boy
    Play that funky music right, ya
    Play that funky music white boy
    Play that funky music right
    Play that funky music white boy
    Play that funky music right

    In Louie, Louie, the girl is blacker than black and Louie is whiter than white......which makes for familial complications. Just wondering....Was Louie an albino? :lmao:

    I really can't understand the lyrics to Louie Louie, but I really don't remember any white/black thing going on. :confused3

    How about Rolling Stones' "Brown Sugar?"

    another great song, and again it makes you move. Louie Louie, is a song on the times (early 70,s) if a black and white fell in love, it was strictly taboo

    It's not that easy being green;
    Having to spend each day the color of the leaves.
    When I think it could be nicer being red, or yellow or gold-
    or something much more colorful like that.

    It's not easy being green.
    It seems you blend in with so many other ordinary things.
    And people tend to pass you over 'cause you're not standing out like flashy sparkles in the water-
    or stars in the sky.

    But green's the color of Spring.
    And green can be cool and friendly-like.
    And green can be big like an ocean, or important like a mountain, or tall like a tree.

    When green is all there is to be It could make you wonder why, but why wonder why?
    Wonder, I am green and it'll do fine, it's beautiful!
    And I think it's what I want to be.

    -Kermit the Frog

    "Pink Houses" John Mellencamp

    "There's a black man with a black cat
    Livin' in a black neighborhood
    He's got an interstate runnin' through his front yard
    You know he thinks that he's got it so good

    And there's a woman in the kitchen
    Cleanin' up evenin' slop
    And he looks at her and says, "Hey darlin'
    I can remember when you could stop a clock"
