(CJP Circ 1990)
Funk Society, I’ve got better things to do with my time,
Like drinking, smoking dope, n’ doin ‘fine Tee Vee Soap Prime Time’
But when I look in my mirror tile,
where did it go my curly smile?
In my long-neck, in my pipe?
Or somewhere there in all of that Tee Vee hype?
No, there it is, I got the scope,
It’s hang’n off of society’s rope,
gett’n free cash for neat dress,
there at the D.S.S.
But I am aware and I DO care,
so I say NO!
I work my OWN wood, I do what I do for my OWN good,
and for the good of my Friends.
More says my Friends than, “Have a nice day thanks for BUYING here”.
See, they like VARIETY, and they like UNITY,
and long hair’s nothin’ ta fear.
RED – BLACK – STRAIGHT or QUEER!
So what do I do when I’m feelin’ blue?
There ain’t no job, only loosers rob, n gettin’ HIGH’S the same ol’ game?
I say, “That ain’t me, I’m for my Friends you see, and my Friends you see,
are my COMMUNITY!
SO I WORK, FOR CHARITY,
MY MINDS EYE CLARITY,
AND MY CULTURE’S GOOD NAME,
I need on one to blame,
for this here’s MY OWN GAME!
