MPLS
Oh

used 2 play the gig at Archie's Bunker
Then up & joined the Jeffersons
was N a band with Lenny Kravitz's mama (Ur mother)
Friday night was good every now & then (Oh)
Now 'm old & doin' so much better
Sellin' the wax out the back of my Subaru
Now cut this groove with a group called Minneapolis
N this here groove, they know just what 2 do, do

MPLS funkin' house from east 2 west
MPLS funkin' (Shut up)
MPLS - Clinton listen, A on test
MPLS funkin' (Shut up)
Oh, funkin'

Other people's parties they B fightin'
They're pullin' the guns & actin' like a fool
The way C it, the more good they B writin'
Makin' U wish that U stayed N a funky school
1st class: Guitar 101; James Brown: 2nd hour
Horn part? U ain't got none unless U got Tower Of Power
Bootsy will teach U all U need 2 know
About the booty bass (Y'all R crazy)
& if U can't play 7, 7 on the drums
U better not show ur face (U ain't funky)

MPLS funkin' house from east 2 west
MPLS funkin' (Shut up)
MPLS - Clinton listen, A on test
MPLS funkin' (Shut up)
Oh
Oh, funkin'
Oh (Yeah, baby)
Funkin'

If nobody buy my joint, it's cool, cuz got 1 (Hell yeah)
All the others cut 4 radio & cheat the fan
Good times
Take us 2 the stage & watch us move ur big butt
Cuz everybody, everybody gettin' funky N this band

Who's N the band, guys? (Besides ur mama) (M)
Sonny T., yeah, that's me (P)
Sittin' N from St. Paul (We're the S-T-E-E-L-E-S) (L) (S)
Cutie Pie on vocals (Jam) (M)
& by way of Queens (Master T) (P) (L) (S)
Hey, U ain't supposed 2 B on this record

MPLS funkin' house from east 2 west
MPLS funkin' (Shut up)
MPLS - Clinton listen, A on test
MPLS funkin' (Ooh)
Oh, we just keep funkin' (Haha...)
Oh, we just keep funkin'
Get funky
Ow!
Haha...
Party people steady pumpin' (Yeah...) {repeat}
