[Verse 1]
Good evening
Do not attempt to adjust your radio, there is nothing wrong
We have taken control as to bring you this special show
We will return it to you as soon as you are grooving

Welcome to station W-E-F-U-N-K, better known as We-Funk
Or deeper still, the Mothership Connection
Home of the extraterrestrial brothers
Dealers of funky music
P.Funk, uncut funk, the bomb

Coming to you directly from the Mothership
Top of the Chocolate Milky Way, 500,000 kilowatts of P. Funk-power
So kick back, dig, while we do it to you in your eardrums
And me? I'm known as Lollipop Man, alias the Long-Haired Sucker

My motto is:

[Hook 1]
Make my funk the P. Funk
I want my funk uncut
Make my funk the P. Funk
I wants to get funked up
I want the bomb
I want the P.Funk
I want my funk uncut
Make my funk the P. Funk
I wants to get funked up

[Verse 2]
W-E-F-U-N-K, y'all
Now this is what I want you all to do:
If you got faults, defects or shortcomings
You know, like arthritis, rheumatism or migraines
Whatever part of your body it is
I want you to lay it on your radio, let the vibes flow through
Funk not only moves, it can re-move, dig?
The desired effect is what you get
When you improve your interplanetary funksmanship
Sir Lollipop Man! Chocolate coated, freaky and in habit form
Doin' it to you in 3D
So groovy that I dig me
Once upon a time called Now
Somebody say, "Is there funk after death?"
I say, "Is seven up?"
Yeah, P. Funk

[Hook 1]

[Hook 2]
Make my funk the P. Funk
I want my funk uncut
Make my funk the P. Funk
I wants to get funked up
I want the bomb
I want the P. Funk
I want my funk stepped on
Make my funk the P. Funk
Before I take it home

[Verse 3]
Yeah, I dig
Let me put my sunglasses on
That's the law around here, you got to wear your sunglasses
So you can feel cool
Gangsta lean, y'all should dig my sun-rooftop
Well, alright. Hey I was diggin' on y'all's funk for awhile
Sounds like it got a three on it though, to me
Then I was down south and I heard some funk with some main ingredients
Like Doobie Brothers, Blue Magic, David Bowie
It was cool, but can you imagine Doobie in your funk? Ho
W-E-F-U-N-K, we funk

[Hook 2]

Home of the extraterrestrial brothers

Gettin' deep
Once upon a time called Right Now
Ain't it funky now
Far 'round
Hey, doin' it to ya in the earhole

[Hook 2]

We're not leavin' y'all
I want you all to stay tuned for Starchild

[Hook 2]

Don't stop, get down
Talk
Blow your horn
P-you
Wants to get funked up
Well, alright

[Hook 1]

[Hook 2]
