Who needs booze, when you got funk? OK, yes, they do make a nice match.



You gotta tenderize your head
To keep your mind lean
Pulverize the senses
Lubricate the machine

You gotta give it all you got
We'll give you some of this junk
'Cause we're getting too phat
From getting DRUNK on the FUNK

I've been dancing with the serpent
Underneath the crimson sky
With the vessel in my hand
Filled with the sweetest wine

Say it like you mean it
Oh friends beware
Get out of your box
Think outside the square

You cleanse your spirit
When you hear this verse
Skin it to the bone
And drink the blood of the earth

To me the glass is always half-empty
So I need a refill
When the bottle has run dry
There's always another to open
