Free The Funk Song Lyrics

 

Introduction (Amuka)-

Free up the funk…

Yea…

 

Hook 1 (Amuka)-

FREE UP THE FUNK!!!

I’m not a fool. You see we ain’t no punks.

We bout to make ‘em free up the funk!

FREE UP THE FUNK!!!

All of my people pound this beat in your trunk.

Until we make ‘em free up the funk!

FREE UP THE FUNK!!!

They in court popping all that junk,

but we bout to make ‘em free up the funk!

FREE UP THE FUNK!!!

They know they shady but they owe us a chunk.

So we bout to make ‘em free up the funk!

FREE UP THE FUNK!!!

 

Verse 1 (Unity Lewis)-

Welcome to the shadiest business on the whole planet

Where the artists and creators ain’t paid and taken for granted.

Taken advantage of, shown no love, poorly managed,

and the ones you think you tight with will do you the most damage.

Parasitic culture controlled by vultures and slave drivers.

Our greatest thinkers and writers been swindled by these connivers.

Especially the musicians that use they gift to unite us.

They like to see us erased ‘cause they conspire to divide us.

So they blight us, steal our wealth,

give the credit to they self.

Put our money in they pocket and a plaque up on they shelf.

Try and jack your royalties and catalogue then give you back talk.

Wanna see you dead broke, stranded on a crack rock.

In court fighting. Won’t settle for the scraps.

Won’t let ‘em jack an inch of funk. We gotta get it all back,

to the hands of the man that’s the foundation of the track.

You tried to forge and fake the funk but now the funk is on attack!

Bring it back!

 

Hook 2 (Amuka)-

I’m not a fool. You see we ain’t no punks.

We bout to make ‘em free up the funk!

FREE UP THE FUNK!!!

All of my people pound this beat in your trunk.

Until we make ‘em free up the funk!

FREE UP THE FUNK!!!

They in court popping all that junk,

but we bout to make ‘em free up the funk!

FREE UP THE FUNK!!!

They know they shady but they owe us a chunk.

So we bout to make ‘em free up the funk!

FREE UP THE FUNK!!!

 

Verse 2 (Sly Stone)-

Way’d up.

Make sure you’re laid up.

That’s when you fade up,

instead of down.

Level way up.

Make sure you’re laid up.

That’s when you fade up,

instead of down.

(Bebe)-

Snippets and songs and samples and loops,

stolen by lawyers and managers in suits.

Cut and paste, signatures replaced,

changing the outcome of a litigating case.

Smile in your face and a simultaneous pat and a stab in the back

by those who we trusted not to do just that.

FREE THE FUNK!

The expression of the existence of self

now returned to the thrown of those who hold the rhythm of the one.

 

Hook 3 (Amuka)-

I’m not a fool. You see we ain’t no punks.

We bout to make ‘em free up the funk!

FREE UP THE FUNK!!!

All of my people pound this beat in your trunk.

Until we make ‘em free up the funk!

FREE UP THE FUNK!!!

They in court popping all that junk,

but we bout to make ‘em free up the funk!

FREE UP THE FUNK!!!

They know they shady but they owe us a chunk.

So we bout to make ‘em free up the funk!

FREE UP THE FUNK!!!

 

Verse 3 (George Clinton)-

Tracking and backtracking.

Turn around and tracking back.

Jacking. Track jacking.

Out in the jack yard tracking off.

Out in the jack yard backing off.

You had tee many martoonies.

But you ain’t as drunk, you ain’t as think as you

drunk I am.

I  ain’t as think as you drunk I am.

You got a speech impediment in your penmanship.

Put your names on the contract but you ain’t write shit.

A speech impediment in your penmanship.

You got a lisping body language.

You stutter in sign language.

Talking shit in ESP.

Until we make ‘em free up the funk!

FREE UP THE FUNK!!!

They in court popping all that junk,
