Funky, nasty
Hey! listen to the man!
Payback! Cold blooded!

People people
We gotta get over before we go under
People people
We gotta get over before we go under

Hey country, didn't say what you meant
Just changed the brand new funky president
Stock market going up, jobs going down
There ain't no funky job to be found
Tax keeps going up
I changed from a glass, now I drink from a paper cup
Gettin' bad

People people
We gotta get over before we go under
Listen to me
Lets get together and raise
Lets get together and get some land
Raise our food like the man
Save our money like the mob
Put up the fight, own the job

Tell em' godfather
Turn on your funk motor
Get down and praise the lord
Get sexy sexy
Get funky and dance
Love me baby love me nice
Don't make it once but can you make it twice? I like it

People people
We got to get over before we go under
People people
Well well well before we go under

Turn on your funk motor, I know its tough
Turn on your funk motor, until you've had enough
Hey give yourself a chance to come through
Tell yourself I can do what you can do

Hey! listen to the man!
Payback! Cold blooded!

People people! hey!
Don't you see what's going on?
You got to get together!
Get on your good foot! change it!
Got to get together and get some land
Raise our food just like the man!
I got to say it again
We got to get together and buy some land
Raise our food just like the man
Save our money, do like the mob
Put up your fight, and own the job
We got to get over before we go under

Country do you know just what I meant?
We just changed, got a brand new funky president

I need to be the mayor
So I could change a few things round here
I need to be the governor...
