  • Ladies and gentlemen
    As you know we have something special down here at Birdland this evening
    A recording for Blue Note Records

    Yeah, yeah, yeah
    What's that? Yeah, yeah, yeah
    Funky, funky

    How 'bout a big hand now
    Wait, wait a minute

    Groovy, groovy, jazzy, funky
    Pounce, bounce, dance as we
    Dip in the melodic sea
    The rhythm keeps flowin' and drips to MC

    Sweet sugar pop, sugar pop, rocks it, pop
    You don't stop 'til the sweet beat drops
    I sure improve as I stick and move
    Vivid poems recited on top of the groove

    Smooth my floatin' like a butterfly
    Notes set afloat, sung like a lullaby
    Brace yourself as the beat hits ya
    Dip trip, flip Fantasia

    (Yeah, yeah, yeah, what's that?)
    Biddy biddy bop (yeah)
    Biddy biddy bop (funky, funky)

    Feel the beat drop, jazz and hip hop
    Drippin' in your dome, makes you zone and bop
    Funk and fusion, a fly illusion
    Keeps ya coastin' on the rhythm you're cruisin'

    Up, down, round and round, rhymes profound
    But nevertheless, you gots to get down
    Fantasy freak through the beat so unique
    You move your feet, the sweat from the heat

    Back to the fact, I'm the mac and I know that
    The way I kick the rhymes, some would call me a poet
    Poems steady flowin', growin', showin' sights and sound
    Caught in the groove in Fantasia, I'm found

    Many trip the tour upon the rhymes they soar
    To an infinite height to the realm of the hardcore
    Here we go, off I take ya
    Dip trip, flip Fantasia

    (Yeah, yeah, yeah, what's that?)
    Biddy biddy bop (yeah)
    Biddy biddy bop (funky, funky)

    (Yeah, yeah, yeah, what's that?)
    Biddy biddy bop (yeah)
    Biddy biddy bop (funky, funky)

    Jump to the jam, boogie woogie jam slam
    Bust the dialect, I'm the man in command
    Come flow with the sounds of the mighty mic master
    Rhyming on the mic, I'm bringing suckers their disaster
    Beaucoup ducs but I still rock Nike
    With the razzle dazzle, a star I might be
    Scribble, drabble, scrabble on the microphone I babble
    As I flip the funky words into a puzzle

    Yes, yes, yes, on and on as I flex
    Get with the flow, words manifest
    Feel the vibe from here to Asia
    Dip trip, flip Fantasia

    Ow, you don't stop
    Come on, come on, come on, come on, come on, come on
    Give me more of that funky horn
    What's that? Yeah, funky, funky

    Biddy biddy bop
    Biddy biddy bop, funky, funky
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, what's that?
    Biddy biddy bop, yeah
    Biddy biddy bop, funky, funky

    Yeah, yeah, yeah, what's that?
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, funky, funky

    Yeah, yeah, yeah, what's that?
    Biddy biddy bop, yeah
    Biddy biddy bop, funky, funky

    Yeah, yeah, yeah, what's that?
    Biddy biddy bop, yeah Writer/s: Herbie Hancock, Jerry Wilkenson, Mal Simpson, Rahsaan Kelly
