Ooh
Uh
Ha, Lord
Funky

Heard about the party now just east of Harlem
Uh
Doug E. gon' b there but U got 2 call him
Even the soldiers need a break sometime
Uh
Listen 2 the groove, ya'll, uh, let it unwind ur mind
No intoxication unless U see what I see
Dancin' hot and sweaty right n front of me, ooh
Oh, call it what U like, I'ma call it how it b, yes sir
This is just another 1 of God's gifts: musicology

Got 2 keep the party movin', uh, like I told U
Uh
Kick the old school joint, uh, 4 the true funk soldiers
Musicology, uh
U got this
Wait a minute band, uh

I wish I had a dollar 4 every time they say
"Don't U miss the feelin' music gave ya back n the day?"
"Let's Groove," "September," Earth, Wind & Fire
"Hot Pants" by James, Sly's gon' "Take You Higher"
Minor keys and drugs don't make a roller skate jam
Take ur pick: turntable, uh, or a band? Lordy
If it ain't Chuck D or Jam Master Jay, U know what? They losin'
Cuz we got a PhD n advanced body movin'
Sing!

Keep the party movin', uh, just like I told U
Kick the old school joint, uh, 4 the true funk soldiers
Musicology, hey
Alright
Hold it down band
Ah
Get back, move, get back
Don't U touch my stereo, these is my records

Don't touch, don't U ever touch
These... is my records
Musicology
Musicology
Everybody get down on the up stroke
Old school joint 4 the true funk soldiers
Ten-hut, good God!
Keep... the party... movin'
Don't stop dancin'
Keep... the party movin'
Musicology
Keep... the party movin'
Drummer man, ride on the bass, huh, all the way 2 the crib (Ahh)

Keep the party movin', uh, just like I told U (That's what I'm talkin' about)
Kick the old school joint, uh, 4 the true funk soldiers (Yeah, ha, sing!)
Musicology 4 the true funk soldiers, good God
Alright, on the 1 y'all

Don't U hear this old school joint?
Don't U ever touch my stereo
Instead I got good and plenty of what U need the most
And that's time

{Scanning 4 Prince tunes}
Uh, watch it now
Uh
Rockin' U coast 2 coast
Hips and lips, chips and whips (Ahh)
