Givin' you more of what you're funkin' for


Just another "Dress-Down Friday" at the office

We have a dual celebration today - it's not just the end of another week, with a sunny weekend (again?) ahead - but it is also the 75th birthday today of (possibly) the last surviving "Godfather of Funk", the wonderfully eccentric Mr George Clinton!

What better way to start the celebrations than (once again) in the company of the divine Legs & Co - who else but these ladies would choose to pay tribute to the great man and his classic One Nation Under A Groove by gyrating around in panties and GI uniforms..?

Thank Funkadelic Disco It's Friday!



So, wide can't get around it
So, low you can't get under it
(So, low you can't get under it)
So, high you can't get over it
(So, high you can't get over it)

Da-yee do do do do do do
This is a chance, this is a chance
Dance your way out of your constrictions
(Tell sugah)
Here's a chance to dance our way out of our constrictions
Gonna be freakin', up and down
Hang up alley way with the groove our
Only guide we shall all be moved

Ready or not here we come
Gettin' down on the one which we believe in
One nation under a groove, gettin' down just for the funk
(Can I get it on my good foot)
Gettin' down just for the funk of it
(Good God)

'Bout time I got down one time
One nation and we're on the move
Nothin' can stop us now
(Aye aye aye aye aye)
Feet don't fail me now

Give you more of what you're funkin' for
Feet don't fail me now

Do you promise to funk?
The whole funk, nothin' but the funk

Ready or not here we come
Gettin' down on the one which we believe in
Here's my chance to dance my way
Out of my constrictions
(Do do dee oh doo)
(Do do dee oh doo)
(You can dance away)

Feet don't fail me now
(Ha ha)
Here's a chance to dance
Our way out of our constrictions
Gonna be groovin' up and down
Hang up alley way
The groove our only guide

We shall all be moved
Feet don't fail me now
(Ha ha)
Givin' you more of what you're funkin' for
Feet don't fail me now
Here's my chance to dance my way
Out of my constrictions
Givin' you more of what you're funkin' for


“The great George Clinton is the father of this funk mothership" said Prince.

Indeed, say I.

  1. I feel one degree away from him. I once sat next to a former groupie of his....she was most entertaining.
