Hey…do it now…yeah hey

Rhythm – 1
Yeah, once I was a boogie singer…playin' in a rock & roll band
I never had no problems, yeah…burnin' down the one night stands
And everything around me, yeah…got to start to feelin' so low
And I decided quickly [yes, I did]…to disco down and check out the show

Rhythm - 2
Yeah, they were dancin' and singin' and movin' to the groovin'
And just when it hit me somebody turned around and shouted

Rhythm - 3
Play that funky music white boy
Play that funky music right
Play that funky music white boy

Lick - 1
Lay down that boogie and play that funky music till you die…
(hey,hey) till you die…yeah, yeah

Rhythm - 1
Well, I tried to understand this…Yeah, huh, I thought that they were out of their minds
How could I be so foolish, [How could I]…tonight's the hours, the one behind
So still I kept on fightin'…Wow, loosin' every step of the way (Yeah, what'd you do?)
I said, "I must go back there"[Got to go back]…and check to see if things still the same

Rhythm - 2
Yeah, they were dancin' and singin' and movin' to the groovin'
And just when it hit me somebody turned around and shouted

Rhythm - 3
Play that funky music white boy
Play that funky music right
Play that funky music white boy

Lick - 1
Lay down that boogie and play that funky music till you die…
Till you die…(Yeah) Wow, till you die

(Come on…Play some electrified funky music)


Solo – playing both Rhythm 1 & 3

Rhythm - 1
[Hey, wait a minute] Now first it wasn't easy…changin' rock & roll and minds
And things were getting shaky…I thought I'd have to leave it behind
Oh, but now its so much better [It's so much better]…I'm funkin out in ev-er-y way
But-I'll never lose that feelin' [No I won't]…Of how I learned my lesson that day

Rhythm - 2
When they were dancin' and singin' and movin' to the groovin'
And just when it hit me somebody turned around and shouted

Rhythm - 3
Play that funky music white boy
Play that funky music right
Play that funky music white boy

Lick - 1
Lay down that boogie and play that funky music till you die…
Till you die…oh, till you die

Rhythm - 1
(They shouted, Play that funky music) Play that funky music
(Play that funky music) Got to keep on…Play that funky music
(Play that funky music) Pl--AY that funky music
(Play that funky music) Wanna take ya higha now…

Rhythm - 3
Play that funky music white boy
Play that funky music right, yeah

Play that funky music right

Play that funky music white boy
Play that funky music right, yeah
