Produced By: George Clinton

You pyonged “Funkadelic – Who Says a Funk Band C...”

Save Note No Thanks
Caution: You are now annotating this song as

Who says a jazz band can't play dance music?
Who says a rock band can't play funk?
Who says a funk band can't play rock?
Ok. We're gonna play some funk so loud
We're gonna rock and roll the crowd
Just watch them dance, watch them dance

[Verse 1]
We really love to play
We really want to stay here
Won't you take the time
To get the music on your mind
We'll release you from the bind

[Verse 2]
We've been around for such a while
Be kinda hard not to have a style
When time get slower by the mile
We relax and wear a great big smile
You can count my teeth

[Verse 3]
One, two, three, four, five
People think cause we are here
Our jazz ran out the ships won't steer
No more. We picked up on the rhythm here
If you just take a toot and have a beer
We're gonna make it clear
Yes, and when the morning gets here
Jazz and soul


[Verse 4]
We never take a chance
Music is our one romance, yeah
May I have this dance
Give it a chance


[Guitar Solo]
