Show me how funky
Is your chicken now (can you do it, can you do it, can you do it)
Let me see you get away, get away
When the band starts kickin' now

Oh, if you can do the funky chicken better than I can
I don't mind givin' in to the baddest man (to the baddest man)
Ooh, but I said i(i said i) like competition (like competition)
Yeah, yeah, yeah cause a little competition now keeps me condition now

Oh, oh, oh so you better come on (come on)come on (come on)
So get yourself in the groove and get ready to move, come on

[Chorus: x2]

You've been spreadin' rumors
You're the baddest on two feet
Let me tell you buddy

We're gonna have a showdown
I'm ready, how 'bout you
Oh, we're gonna dance til the midnight hour
Or 'til the sun come shinin' through

Come on (come on) come on (come on) come on yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Put yourself in the groove and get ready to move, come on
We're gonna have a showdown
Gonna get the low down yeah, yeah, yeah
