Lyrics

written by Mark Croft & Eric Hester
The other day I fell asleep, asleep behind the wheel
There was a crash I did not hear and a pain I did not feel
I wrapped my car around that oak around that old oak tree
And all I saw when I awoke were angels standing over me

They said “son I think you better come, come away with us,”
“Because the devil heard that crash down there and that’s one fool you can’t trust”
I said, “I’d love to check out heaven boys, but help me understand,
There’s just one thing I’ve got to know, I’ve just got one demand”

Is it gonna be funky?
Because it better be funky Lord
Is it gonna be funky?
You know it better be funky Lord

Then the devil stuck his head around, around that old oak tree
He said “son if funk is what you what you better come along with me
Because I’ve got Rick James that ‘Super freak’ and pretty soon I’ll have The Stones
And you can’t get funky on the harp and you can’t get down alone

You know it’s gonna be funky
yeah its gonna be funky boy
You know It’s gonna be funky
Yeah its gonna be funky boy

So tell me son you gotta let me know now
Let me make this clear
‘cause if all you need is that nasty funk then it’s funky as hell down here

And then I saw the light
As the clouds opened wide
Just like a sunrise
On the western skyline

Then the angels made their final play to set my spirit free
they had Jesus Christ on lead guitar and Buddha on the keys
Mohammad picked that bass apart and Moses lead the choir
And when Vishnu went to count it in God cranked that amplifier

Is it gonna be funky?
Because it better be funky Lord
Is it gonna be funky?
You know it better be funky Lord
