lyrics

(Long)

Back when I first met you
The day you was born
You kicked your little feet and I know complete
a funky baby boy was born.

Nurse, you see this baby?
This baby right here?
Nurse, you see this baby?
This baby right here?

Baby gon' be funky

Wait til you learn how to walk, baby.
I'm gonna teach you how to stride.
They gonna teach you ABCs and your 123s.
I'm gonna teach you how to talk a jive.

Teacher, you see this baby?
This baby right here?
Teacher, you see this baby?
This baby right here?

Baby gon' be funky

Don't you tell your momma.
She never would understand.
But I burned you two or three Funkadelic CDs.
They gonna turn you to a funky man.

Son, look in the mirror.
This mirror right here.
Son, look in this mirror.
This mirror right here.

You were born to be funky

Here's my baby
Baby gon' be funky
