  • Get down, baby
    To the funky, funky, funky groove
    Get down, baby
    Let the light reflect upon your natural mood

    Get down, baby
    Your creative mood shall express itself
    Get down, baby
    After life and desire there is nothing left

    We're all children of the world
    A hungry man in search for a hungry girl
    It's strange, so plain we're all cannibal
    The most wasted and two faced of all animals

    Get down, get down
    Get down, get down

    Take my soul, baby
    When you reel I can feel so much desire
    Take my soul, baby
    Life unfolds from my soul when you start a fire

    So get down, just get down

    Get down, baby
    As the rhythm should follow through your able soul
    Get down, baby
    Play the part like a pro in a perfect role

    Get down, baby
    To the funky, funky, funky groove
    Get down, baby
    Let the light reflect upon your natural mood

    One can never point out the actual path
    Of the mysterious need in a female's heart
    Man can only follow not knowing how
    His faith might erupt [?]

    So get down, get down
    Get down, get down
    Get down

    Get down, baby
    To the funky, funky, funky groove
    Get down, baby
    Let the light reflect upon your natural move

    Take my soul, baby
    Your creative mood shall express itself
    Take my soul, baby
    After life and desire there is nothing left

    Get down, get down
    Get down, get down
    Get down, get down
    Get down, get down
