Rufus - Once You Get Started Lyrics




Once you get started, oh it's hard to stop
You can't stop you just can't stop
When you get down y'all
When you get down ain't no turnin' back no

Everybody party hearty
To get back in the groove
I like the way you do it .. way you do it
I like the way you move

It's a good thing
Hear a funky sound
Everybody let's get on down
You gon do it like you never done before
Hey .. hey

I just want you to know that
Once you get started, oh it's hard to stop
You can't stop you just can't stop
When you get down y'all
When you get down ain't no turnin' back no

Everybody party hearty
To get right in the groove
I love the way you do it .. way you do it
I like the way you move

It's the new thing
When ya know that ya getting' on down, yeah
Everybody come on y'all and get down with me
You can do it like you never done before, yeah

Once you get started, oh it's hard to stop
You can't stop you just can't stop
When you get down y'all
When you get down ain't no turnin' back no

Now that ya got down
We just wanna say
If you dig the funky, funky music
Come on and move it this way

Come on and move, come on and groove [repeat to end]

  16. El Ka

    Native outfit...nice. U can tell who are the natives in America. Black vibes all across the gkobe

  17. Freddy Mertz

    The MOST underrated female soul/funk/top forty/pop rock talent...with an amazing smile and enthusiasm level -- on top of raw beauty!   Even lip-syncing, she puts her all into this vintage TV performance.   Once Chaka gets started, I'm hooked!   This woman deserves Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame Induction!

    Ruud g

    Underrated? She is regarded as one of the greatest soulsingers ever. It's just that her days were in the 70s. Times change, music changes, that's just the way things go. But she won't be forgotten.

    TineCrine C

    @Ruud g She has been forgotten. She just put out a new album earlier this year, her first in 12 years, and barely anybody cared.

  18. 12groney
