Kool & The Gang - Funky Granny Lyrics

Hey, man!
Yeah, what's happenin', man?
Dig this old lady comin' down the street!
She got on yellow hot pants, and purple boots!
Hey, hey there, fellas, how're y'all doin'? Yeah!
Hey, there, what's your name, old lady?
My name is Funky Granny
Funky Granny?!
That's right, son, what's wrong with you?

If you Funky Granny
Let me see you get funky right here!
Well, dig this and watch me

    Keith Davis

    D'Artenya Granger Kool & the Gang late 60's early 70's was the greatest.

  10. Cliff Winder

    The Ohio Player's "Funky Worm" reminded me of this tune, also worth a check-out!

    kyle anderson

    All those groups from back then... Earth Wind & Fire, Mandrill, etc... all funk and playing 4 sets a night clubs... they WERE the music... then Disco came and killed music... it still makes me laugh that most people think Disco is funk...
