I LOVE OLD SKOOL MUSIC! It’s no secret. It’s been a very long time since we’ve heard something that seriously makes us want to get up and move. There is no way you can listen to this and not want to dance. When I first heard it many artists came to mind from the late 70s and 80s. I believe many would agree that you hear “The Time” “Prince” “James Brown” “Earth Wind & Fire Horn Section” and just that classic old skool funk sound.  I caught them on SNL and ran to ITunes the next day to download and I have it on my phone and tablet.  I’m in love with his song. DON’T BELIEVE ME — JUST WATCH!

LYRICS
UPTOWN FUNK (complete lyrics)

This hit, that ice cold
Michelle Pfeiffer, that white gold
This one for them hood girls
Them good girls straight masterpiece
Stylin’, whilen, livin’ it up in the city
Got Chucks on with Saint Laurent
Gotta kiss myself, I’m so pretty

I’m too hot (hot damn)
Call the police and a fireman
I’m too hot (hot damn)
Make a dragon wanna retire man
I’m too hot (hot damn)
Say my name you know who I am
I’m too hot (hot damn)
And my band ’bout that money, break it down

Girl sent you hallelujah (whoo)
Girl sent you hallelujah (whoo)
Girl sent you hallelujah (whoo)
‘Cause uptown funk gon’ give it to you
‘Cause uptown funk gon’ give it to you
‘Cause uptown funk gon’ give it to you
Saturday night and we in the spot
Don’t believe me just watch (come on)

Don’t believe me just watch

Don’t believe me just watch
Don’t believe me just watch
Don’t believe me just watch
Don’t believe me just watch
Don’t believe me just watch
Hey, hey, hey, come

Stop, wait a minute
Fill my cup, put some liquor in it
Take a sip, sign the check
Julio, get the stretch
Ride to Harlem, Hollywood
Jackson, Mississippi
If we show up, we gon’ show out
Smoother than a fresh jar of skippy

I’m too hot (hot damn)
Call the police and a fireman
I’m too hot (hot damn)
Make a dragon wanna retire man
I’m too hot (hot damn)
Bitch say my name you know who I am
I’m too hot (hot damn)
And my band ’bout that money
Break it down

Girl sent you hallelujah (whoo)
Girl sent you hallelujah (whoo)
Girl sent you hallelujah (whoo)
‘Cause uptown funk gon’ give it to you
‘Cause uptown funk gon’ give it to you
‘Cause uptown funk gon’ give it to you
Saturday night and we in the spot
Don’t believe me just watch (come on)

Don’t believe me just watch

Don’t believe me just watch
Don’t believe me just watch
Don’t believe me just watch
Don’t believe me just watch
Hey, hey, hey, oh

[Before we leave
Lemmi tell y’all a lil’ something]
Uptown funk you up
Uptown funk you up
Uptown funk you up
Uptown funk you up
I said uptown funk you up
Uptown funk you up
Uptown funk you up
Uptown funk you up

Come on, dance, jump on it
If you sexy then flaunt it
If you freaky then own it
Don’t brag about it, come show me

Come on, dance
Jump on it
If you sexy then flaunt it
Well it’s Saturday night and we in the spot
Don’t believe me just watch come on!

Don’t believe me just watch

Don’t believe me just watch
Don’t believe me just watch
Don’t believe me just watch
Don’t believe me just watch
Hey, hey, hey, Oh

Uptown funk you up
Uptown funk you up (say what?)
Uptown funk you up
Uptown funk you up (come on)
Uptown funk you up
Uptown funk you up (say what?)
Uptown funk you up
Uptown funk you up (come on)
Uptown funk you up
Uptown funk you up (say what?)
Uptown funk you up
Uptown funk you up
Uptown funk you up
Uptown funk you up (say what?)
Uptown funk you up

  1. Hey Liberty! Been awhile; glad you’re back!

    There’s a local band (DFW area) called Le Freak whose costumes and afros are only out-done by their 70’s & 80’s dance music; fantastic energy. I prefer a bit more funk as well than the trash-disco of the era. Funk is easier to dance to (at least for me) than disco, and not as…. hoaky(?). LOL
