One used to be the shotgun 
Two used to be the bad boogaloo  Three used to be the swing shingaling
Four used to be the funky four fingers 

Down on funky street, diggin' the funky beat
Down on funky street
That's where the grooviest people meet

From Atlanta Georgia, goin' on down to the border  Every boy is dancin' with somebody's daughter 
Groovin' in the city, got to get down with it

Down on funky street we're diggin' that funky beat
Down on funky street
That's where the groovier people meet

Jump up and down and you're turnin' around 
You bend your knees half way down to the ground 
You move it to the west and you move it to the south 
You turn it around and kiss your partner in the mouth 

Down on funky street, diggin' that funky beat
Down on funky street
 Where the grooviest people meet

 Sweet soul music is in the air
 People they're comin' from everywhere 
Comin' from the east, comin' from the west
Dancin' with the one that they love the best

One, c'mon everybody, got to hit the floor 
Three, c'mon, baby, and go with me
Two used be the bad boogaloo 
One, got to have just a little fun

Down on funky street, diggin' the funky beat
Down on funky street, diggin' the funky beat
Down on funky street, diggin' the funky beat
Down on funky street, we're doing the swinging shingaling
