Parliament - Unfunky UFO Lyrics




You've got all that is really needed
To save a dying world from its funklessness

Stupidly I forced a smile
My composure was secure
I wore a silly grin from ear to ear
A smile they saw right through

Oh, but then like a streak of lightning it came
Filling my brain with this pain
Without saying a word this voice I heard
"Give up the funk, you punk"

Unfunky kind of UFO
(Up from the sun) Here from the sun
(You've got the groove) You've got the groove and we want some

We're unfunky and we're obsolete
(And out of time) And we're out of time
Gonna take your funk and make it mine

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, oh-oh

You could feel so much better
If you would show me how to funk like you do
You've got all that is really needed
To save a dying world from its funklessness

Deep in pain I called the names
Of some funkified friends of mine (well)
Well they were on the run and gettin' it on
And groovin' twelve hours live

Oh, like a streak of lightning it came
Filling my brain with pain
Without saying a word, this voice I heard
"Give up the funk, you punk"

Unfunky kind of UFO
(Up from the sun) Here from the sun
(You've got the groove) You've got the groove and we want some

(Unfunky and obsolete) We're unfunky and we're obsolete
(And out of time) And we're out of time
Gonna take your funk and make it mine

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, oh-oh
(Shine)

You could feel so much better
If you would show me how to funk like you do
You could feel so much better
If you would show me how to funk like you do

You could feel so much better
If you would show me how to funk like you do
You could feel so much better
If you would show me how to funk like you do

You've got all that is really needed
To save a dying world from its funklessness

I don't know where but they were near
They took me by surprise
They, they crept upon me early this morning
Right before my eyes
And they were saying

"Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah"
Sweet old music

Unfunky kind of UFO
(Up from the sun) Here from the sun
(You've got the groove) You've got the groove and we want got some
(Ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh, ooh)

(Unfunky and obsolete) We're unfunky and we're obsolete
(And out of time) And we're out of time
Gonna take your funk and make it mine

Unfunky kind of UFO
(Up from the sun) Here from the sun
(And you've got the groove) You've got the groove and we want got some

(Unfunky and obsolete) We're unfunky and we're obsolete
(And out of time) And we're out of time
Gonna take your funk and make it mine

You've got all that is really needed
To save a dying world from its funklessness

You could feel so much better
If you would show me how to funk like you do
You could feel so much better

  32. Noel Openda

    wicked bass on this must be Bootsy!

    Gordon Armstrong

    Sounds more like Cordell "Boogie" Mosson. Bootsy's a little more Spastic(Space Bass). Boogie is smoother.

  38. ANonPaidAttorneySpokesperson

    11 ppl went back to the sun with no Funk. How can you hate this Groove...smh

  39. steven drake

    Back in the day my record would skip at 1:10 over and over and I would have to put pressure on the needle's arm or lift it up pass the scratch, this frustrated me so I didn't play this song. I was an old man before I finally learned the lyrics. Parliment wasn't only funky they were profound.

    TheMrMediocre

    I feel your pain. There are some tracks I can't unhear the skips even once I've replaced the record.

  40. William Smith

    Mothership Connection connected us all back in the 70's thats all I got to say house parties were nothing without this album nuff said ", Funk Forever 👌🏾💯

  41. Robert Lewis

    Hey U 11 Unfunky UFO's Give Up the Funk U Punk(s) 🤘

  42. Terry Dixon

    what i love about parlarment, i had a coworker who use to pick me up, and one time we was driving to work, and he ask me can you sing? And i asked him what song you want me to sing? and he played Jesus is real, and i begin to sing the song. He listened, and smiled and said whoa you got a voice, what church do sing at, and i told him i never sanged in church. And he looked at me and said, so where did you learn to hit them notes? I told him the truth. Glen Goins, and Gary snider.

    KHunter

    There's "gospel" in our songs.

  43. Byron Stephens

    after all these years still the coldest

  44. Jason Brown

    This one vs. Bootzilla. Now that's some competition fo' ya' FUNKY ass. Long live. the 1970's!!!

  45. yomomajumprcables

    my son looks at me crazy when I'm rockin this..he has no taste in good music.

    Wicked RAD

    when i have kids im gonna play a ton of this and be that weird dad who blares this music when they drop their son off

    Jacob Branch

    I love listening to this along with Bootzilla, They just seem to go hand-in-hand!!!

    Richard Greene

    Your son looks you funny because all that’s shoved down his neck today is no talent women hating self hating can’t play a note sing a note write a note carry a tune with a dump truck rap! Pure unadulterated mind rotting shit! I feel so sorry for this devoid of talent generation us black folk have lost our mojo forever

  46. Free Music Downloader - All Music

    WooW Good Job ;) Crack

  47. Matt Ashton

    5 unfunks need to get funked up good and proper!

  48. Tariq El Azim

    Parliament/Funkadelic is the reason I warn people to be careful what kind of music you listen to when you are young.  It's hard to let go of!  Funk gets stronger...

    Folks Bell

    Cary Robinson a baby funker here. Born in 74 mom & pop had me funkin in the baby crib😎

    nicolas hrechko

    Tariq El Azim found Parliament/Funkadelic a few months ago. I’m 19 and now I’m knee deep in the funk. I’ve listened to their entire discography at this point and the funk is only getting stronger by the day

    ljay79

    Truth be told

    peady64

    I’ve been addicted to the P-Funk since 1975. AND I’M LOVIN’ IT! Go Wiggle🤘🏽

  49. cenflopro

    Forty years later and I'm still blasting this album. One of the best ever!

    Karl Mance

    mee too !!!......

    Jason Budge

    It's only been 35 for me. But I don't see anything changing in the next 5. I pity those that haven't felt the funk at this level. It's a friend for life.

  50. raul ortiz

    Yo this is it. We the few with brain cells have partaken a voyage to funk and there is no turning back. George Clinton in my summation is the best of the best.

  51. D'Artenya Granger

    Parliament - Unfunky UFO

  52. Leo55BabyBoomer

    You surely will so much better if you get off your ass and jam.

  53. rembeadgc

    This music is still amazing after 40+ years! Interestingly I discovered that Randy Brecker is "all over" P-Funk's recording history. Odd because all you ever hear about is Maceo, Fred and the rest of the "brothers", but never about "cousin Randy". Perhaps he only joined them in the studio and left the live party up to the other guys.

    chris edwards

    the brecker brothers played on the chocate city album but when Fred, maceo, kush, and rick.joined they had to.share horn duties and George always had players available in the clones album Bernie worell and Fred was writing all the horn arrangements and the horny horns and the breckers was doing the horn parts for bootsy, the brides, and parlet and let's not forget the other horn players

    modifiedcontent

    George Clinton works with whoever he can get to get it done. See this clip of Fred Wesley in George Clinton's studio in Tallahassee, with two new random players - https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=3Kjw1XpIX5k
