Rick James - Fire It Up Lyrics




[Chorus:]
(We want Rick to funk us up.)
(We want Rick to funk us up.)

Hey
Yeah, yeah
Hey

(Hey everyone, tonight we're gonna have fun.)
What you want us to do with the funk?
(Fire it up.)
(Hey everyone, tonight we're gonna have fun.)
What do you want us to do with the funk?
(Fire it up.)

If funky music makes you groove
And you just can't wait to move
And getting off is what you've come here for
Then there's no need to hesitate
Cause you know I hate to wait
I'll funk you til' you roll on out the door.

[Chorus]

(So wave the funk sign in the air.)
And show me that you care
You've been sitting on your booty much too long
(We'll funk you, but don't go nowhere.)
If you say it's fun
Then fire up cause the show has just begun

(Hey everyone tonight we're gonna have fun.)
What you want us to do with the funk?
(Fire it up.)
Hey everyone tonight we're gonna have fun.)
What you want us to do with the funk?
(Fire it up)
Blow
(Hey......)

Now don't just sit there in your chairs
Actin' like L-seven squares
Freak on out, that's what this song's about
(Funk is for the young and old)
I know you have been told

Don't ever get too hip to sing and shout now
I haven't come to bring you down
Or to turn your head around
Or to tell you what you should or should not do
(Funk was made to get you high.)

That's no alibi
Do what you want, it's all left up to you
Yeah
(Hey everyone tonight we're gonna have fun.)
What you want us to do with the funk?
(Fire it up.)

(Hey everyone tonight we're gonna have fun.)
What you want us to do with the funk?
(Fire it up.)
(People get up and dance to the music.)
(People get up.)
(People get up.)
(People get up.)
(People get up and dance to the music.)
(People get up.)
(People get up.)
(People get up.)
(Hey......)
Yeah
(Hey......)
What you want us to do with the funk?
(Fire it up.)
What you want us to do with the funk?
(Fire it up.)
Say fire it up
(Fire it up.)
Say fire it up
(Fire it up.)
Say fire it up
(Fire it up.)
Fire it up.

    Rick was talking about the Chronic before it was a album called "The Chronic"

  16. Darrell Sadler

    Us chilluns were forbidden to listen to this. Of course I was defiant!

    durtysouththugsta

    Rather for my son to listen to this than the trash thats playing now

  17. James T

    This was a favorite song at his concerts. I remember him having some people come on stage at a concert I saw him in but the catch. They had to have joints. They then got to smoke with Rick James lol Rick never disappointed.

    durtysouththugsta

    James T Rick was definitely a crowd pleaser lol

  18. Henri Nevermind

    I remember attending to the "Fire It Up" tour when it came to New Orleans, La....Municipal Auditorium. I was 13yrs old.

  24. April Nowak-Tolen

    I was at the Fire It Up tour in Greenville, SC when he was throwing 'joints' into the audience. He was making fun of the cops near the stage. :) This is also the first time I saw Prince. I was mesmerized. RIP to 2 legends.

    the promise man

    I saw the fire it up tour to ..I was there he also had tenna Marie and zapp Roger Troutman with him

    Jarrel Ely

    Rick vs the Charlie Wilson? Who is the best?

    jaymes hines

    Saw the same tour at Market Square Arena in Indianapolis, Rick did Fired it Up!! However, Prince killed it with songs and performance, no stage props!

    Jarrel Ely

    @jaymes hines Rick James versus The Gap band who put on a better show

  25. FunkyChi1d

    I don't recall ever watching a band lip sync (and air guitar) on Don Kirshner's Rock Concert. I thought they all played live.

    Aimi Geη

    They preformed live, but for the video, they add in the studio audio

  26. Robert Thompson

    Punk Funk at it's funkiest. I love it.

    misscritique66

    Nuthin but da Punk FUNK!!!

    Gary Franklin

    Yes sir!!!

  27. Kreep Nazty

    Probably not the greatest lyrics, but his voice has me listening to this song to the very end.

    Robert Thompson

    The lyrics are referring to his penis. Rick James liked to write risque songs.

    Kreep Nazty

    its a good song.I just meant not as "catchy" or as memorably as Super Freak or Give it to me baby...but he was RICK James so I suppose he had every right to do as many songs about his penis as he so desired..thanks bro

    Robert Thompson

    Kreep Nazty Love Gun was the only song that he wrote like that. Peace.

    Just Timm

    @Robert Thompson
    You wished. Lyrics are all about funk, and Weed.

    Robert Thompson

    @Just Timm Love Gun is about his penis. Fire It Up was about getting lit. That's what I was having a A and B conversation with Kreep Natzy about before your dumb ass C'd your way into the motherfucking conversation.
