lyrics

Well I like what I do... And I... Do what I like
What I do? I play the funky music...
Well I like what I do... And I... Do what I like
What I do? I play the funky music...

Some of my friends smoke a little dope I gotta tell you all
Some of my friends tootin up coke
Well different strokes for different folks... But me?
Playin funky music all night long... That's what turns
Me on...

I might not ever make the big time yeah yeah yeah yeah
Cause honky tonk joints that's my style
Hey in a one bulb lighted room... Where the women wear
50 cent perfume...

Big John is my name... Playin funky music is my claim to fame
From the big city... Me and my band specialize in the nitty gritty...

Played my music in every honky tonk joint from maine to Mexico
Soulful folks ain't got no shoes... Smellin like all out doors...
I got invited to the white house but I had to turn it down cause this here band can't stand what saddity folks are puttin down...

I want to know can you get down... All the way down...
