Written By: Trey Max/ Bronx Style Bob

People won't you come along
Get down to the funky song
Everybody in the street
Get down to the funky beat
-The Dynamic Corvettes

Here's a little story that's got to be told
The party people in the place got a whole lotta soul
So when we're on the mic we're rock shockin the house
And when we all get together we can turn it out
-Sha Rock (Funky 4 +1)
