Lyrics:

Ooh ooh ooh
Just keep it funky
Yeah hey
Just keep it funky
Woah yeah
Oooh
Just keep it funky

Ain’t nobody care where the hell you are coming from
Just keep it funky
Yeah
Ain’t nobody gonna get upset over here we won’t
Oh no ah-ah, ooh (X2)

Woo!

Why you standing over there
With a look on your face of pure despair?
Yeah I know it’s not fair
Don’t you know
It happens to everybody
Pick yourself up and dance my darling
Don’t you know
It happens to everybody
Pick yourself up and dance my darling
Yeah!

Ain’t nobody care where the hell you are coming from
Just keep it funky
Yeah
Ain’t nobody gonna get upset over here we won’t
Oh no ah-ah Ooh (X2)

Yo!
Mr DJ drop it
Let us rock it
Like a hammerhead cocking
shocking ’em, popping & locking ’em, blocking & knocking ’em,
killing all the birds mocking
Now we’re coming at ya at warp speed
Never letting up till the floor bleed
Follow my lead as I proceed with a dope beat from nobody but the
Ha ha ha ha
Yo,
Step on up, let me see what you got
Kickin’ non stop with a pair of hi tops
We don’t rock until the floor gets hot,
whether you like it or not we only get one shot
Breaking crumping or hip hop
Sneakers skaters or flip flops
Bass bins bumping in the back yard till they call the neighbourhood watch or the cops

Ain’t nobody care where the hell you are coming from
Just keep it funky
Yeah
Ain’t nobody gonna get upset over here we won’t
Oh no ah-ah (X4)

(Ain’t nobody)
Ooh
(Oh yeah)

Just keep it funky

No stress, no pressure
Come on
That’s right
Woo
One shot
Hip hop
Flip flop
Come on come on
