Στο τέταρτο άλμπουμ των Parliament ο George Clinton οδηγεί τη μπάντα, ενισχυμένη από τους πρώην JB’s Maceo Parker και Fred Wesley, στο εξώτερο διάστημα.

On the fourth
Parliament album, George Clinton leads the band, enforced by the ex JB’s Maceo Parker & Fred Wesley, to outer space.

You’ve got all that is really needed
To save a dying world
From its funklessness
Stupidly I masked??? my smile
My composure was secure
A silly grin from ear to ear
A smile that’s all right through
Oh, but then like a streak of lightning it came
Filling my brain with this pain
Without saying a word this voice I heard
“Give up the funk, you punk!”
Unfunky kind of UFO (from the sun)
Here from the sun (you’ve got the groove)
You’ve got the groove and we want some
We’re unfunky and we’re obsolete (and out of time)
And we’re out of time
Gonna take your funk and make it mine
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, oh, oh
You could feel so much better
If you would show me how to funk like you do
You’ve got all that is really needed
To save a dying world
>From its funklessness
Deep in pain I called the names
Of some funkified friends of mine
They were on the run
And gettin’ it on
And groovin’ twelve hours light
Oh, but like a streak of lightning it came
Filling my brain with pain
Without saying a word, this voice I heard
“Give up the funk, you punk!”
Unfunky kind of UFO (from the sun)
Here from the sun (you’ve got the groove)
You’ve got the groove and we’ve got some
We’re unfunky and we’re obsolete (and out of time)
And we’re out of time
Gonna take your funk and make it mine
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, oh, oh (shiiine)
You could feel so much better
If you would show me how to funk like you do
(x4)
You’ve got all that is really needed
To save a dying world
From its funklessness
Out of nowhere but they were, nearly took me by surprise
They crept upon me early this morning
Right before my eyes
And they were saying
“Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah”
Sweet old music
Unfunky kind of UFO (from the sun)
Here from the sun (you’ve got the groove)
You’ve got the groove and we’ve got some (oooh-ooh-ooh!)
We’re unfunky and we’re obsolete (and out of time)
And we’re out of time
Gonna take your funk and make it mine
Unfunky kind of UFO (from the sun)
Here from the sun (you’ve got the groove)
You’ve got the groove and we’ve got some (unfunky and obsolete)
We’re unfunky and we’re obsolete (and out of time)
And we’re out of time
Gonna take your funk and make it mine
You’ve got all that is really needed
To save a dying world
From its funklessness
You could feel so much better
If you would show me how to funk like you do
(x2)
