Lyrics
I take you to the pictures
I take you to the shop
Walking in the sunshine
Rolling in the snow
Stepping on the threshold
Out into the street
All you want to do, my love,
Is dancing with your feet

To those funky disco pops, funky disco pops
Funky disco pops, funky disco pops
Funky disco pops, funky disco pops
Funky, funky, funky, funky, funky disco pops
Oh!

I went to see the doctor
Not so long ago
I told her all about you
I put her in the know
Tried to get you treatment
I didn't stand a chance
She turned on her radio
And she did the doctor's dance

To those funky disco pops, funky disco pops
Funky disco pops, funky disco pops
Funky disco pops, funky disco pops
Funky, funky, funky, funky, funky disco pops

If one doctor doctors another doctor, does the doctor doing the doctoring doctor the doctor who's being doctored
Just as the doctor being doctored wants to be doctored
Or does the doctor doing the doctoring doctor the doctor who's being doctored
Just as the doctor who's doing the doctoring wants to do the doctoring
Do the doctoring
Do the doctoring

I want to take you courting
But bopping is the boss
Hugging makes you angry
Kissing makes you cross
Your only inspiration
Is booty of the seat
In this position your disposition
Is always very sweet

Funky disco pops, funky disco pops
Funky disco pops, funky disco pops
Funky disco pops, funky disco pops
Funky, funky, funky, funky, funky disco pops

Funky disco pops, funky disco pops
Funky disco pops, funky disco pops
Funky disco pops, funky disco pops
Funky, funky, funky, funky, funky disco pops
