lyrics

Doing it Funky
By Robert Johnson Howard

I make a few bucks working hard all day just doing what I can do
Got to save some money to pay the rent before the month is through
But when my day is over I like to hang in Smokey bars
Gotta get soul back into my life playing blues on my guitar

Doing it Funky
Yeh doing it Funky
I’m gonna play it cool just the way I feel
Gonna reach down deep where I get real
Funky
Doing it Funky

I got the blues in my fingers and the funk is in my soul
When nothing else is making sense it’s the one thing I control
Sometimes I just get troubled about this lousy hand I drew
That old regret I soon forget when I’m playing a song for you

And doing it Funky
Yeh doing it Funky
I’m gonna play it hard just the way I feel
Gonna reach down deep where I get real
Funky
Doing it Funky

The’re a guy whose ready for a cute young Betty, can’t resist his advance
He’s heading on down to Broadway to get a little one night romance
He’s playing their cards real closely not leaving it up to chance
But the girls downtown just want to get down to some bumping and grinding dance

Their doing it Funky
Yeh, doing it Funky
Their moving and grooving to the way they feel
You be ready if you want to get real… Funky,
Do it funky
I got the funk in me you know I got the funk

about

Robert Johnson Howard Newport, Rhode Island

Writing and recording is my passion. Its like a painting. It doesn't do any good stuck in my head so I might as well get it on disk before it drives me to cut my ear off.
