These are some of the lyrics from the song Play That Funky Music By Wild Cherry
Yeah, once I was a Funky singer
Playin' in a Rock & Roll band
I never had no problems,
Burnin' down one night stands
And everything around me, yeah
Got to stop to feelin' so low
And I decided quickly, yes I did
To disco down and check out the show
Yeah they were 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
