“Give Up the Funk (Tear the Roof Off the Sucker)” Lyrics

Tear the roof off the mother, tear the roof off the mother sucker
Tear the roof off the sucker
Tear the roof off the mother, tear the roof off the mother sucker
Tear the roof off the sucker
Tear the roof off the mother, tear the roof off the mother sucker
Tear the roof off the sucker
Tear the roof off the mother, tear the roof off the mother sucker
Tear the roof off the sucker!
 
You’ve got a real type of thing goin’ down, gettin’ down
There’s a whole lot of rhythm goin’ ’round
You’ve got a real type of thing goin’ down, gettin’ down
There’s a whole lot of rhythm goin’ ’round
