[Em7]    
[Em7]Hey once I was a boogie singer playin' in a rock and roll band
[Em7]I never had no problems burning down them one night stands
[Em7]And everything around me got to stop to feelin' so low
[Em7]And I decided quickly yes I did to disco down and check out the show

Yeah they was [D]danc[Em]in' and [D]sing[Em]in' and [D]movi[Em]n' to the [D]groov[Em]in'   
And j[D]ust w[Em]hen it [D]hit [Em]me some[D]bo  [Em]dy turned around and shouted

[Gm7]Play that funky music white boy play that funky music right
Play that funky music [Bbm]white boy
[Em]Lay down a [D]boogie and [C]play that funky [B7]music till you die.

[Em7]I tried to understand this I thought that they were out of their minds
[Em7]How could I be so foolish how could I to not see I was the one behind
[Em7]So still I kept on fighting well loosing every step of the way
[Em7]I said I must go back there I got to go back and check to see if things still the same

Yeah they was [D]danc[Em]in' and [D]sing[Em]in' and [D]movi[Em]n' to the [D]groov[Em]in'   
And j[D]ust w[Em]hen it [D]hit [Em]me some[D]bo  [Em]dy turned around and shouted

[Gm7]Play that funky music white boy play that funky music right
Play that funky music [Bbm]white boy
[Em]Lay down a [D]boogie and [C]play that funky [B7]music till you die.

[Em7]Now first it wasn't easy changin' rock and roll and minds
[Em7]And things were getting shaky I thought I'd have to leave it behind
[Em7]But now its so much better it's so much better I'm funking out in every way
[Em7]But I'll never lose that feelin' no I won't of how I learned my lesson that day

Yeah they was [D]danc[Em]in' and [D]sing[Em]in' and [D]movi[Em]n' to the [D]groov[Em]in'   
And j[D]ust w[Em]hen it [D]hit [Em]me some[D]bo  [Em]dy turned around and shouted

[Gm7]Play that funky music white boy play that funky music right
Play that funky music [Bbm]white boy
[Em]Lay down a [D]boogie and [C]play that funky [B7]music till you die.

Hey once I was a boogie singer playin' in a rock and roll band
I never had no problems burning down them one night stands
And everything around me got to stop to feelin' so low
And I decided quickly yes I did to disco down and check out the show

Yeah they was dancin' and singin' and movin' to the groovin'
And just when it hit me somebody turned around and shouted

Play that funky music white boy play that funky music right
Play that funky music white boy
Lay down a boogie and play that funky music till you die.

I tried to understand this I thought that they were out of their minds
How could I be so foolish how could I to not see I was the one behind
So still I kept on fighting well loosing every step of the way
I said I must go back there I got to go back and check to see if things still the same

Yeah they was dancin' and singin' and movin' to the groovin'
And just when it hit me somebody turned around and shouted

Play that funky music white boy play that funky music right
Play that funky music white boy
Lay down a boogie and play that funky music till you die.

Now first it wasn't easy changin' rock and roll and minds
And things were getting shaky I thought I'd have to leave it behind
But now its so much better it's so much better I'm funking out in every way
But I'll never lose that feelin' no I won't of how I learned my lesson that day

Yeah they was dancin' and singin' and movin' to the groovin'
And just when it hit me somebody turned around and shouted

Play that funky music white boy play that funky music right
Play that funky music white boy
Lay down a boogie and play that funky music till you die.
