Lyrics

Jimmy: Gotta make a move to a town that's right for me.

Town to keep me movin' keep me groovin' with some energy.

Veggies: Well, I talk about it, talk about it, Talk about it, talk about it.

Talk about, talk about, Talk about movin'

Children: Gotta move on. Gotta move on. Gotta move on

Jimmy: Won't you take me to Funkytown? (x4)

It's so funky, it's so funky.

For a donkey to act monkey.

Jimmy and Junior: Won't you take me to Funkytown? (x4)

Jimmy: Gotta make a move to a town that's right for me.

Town to keep me movin' keep me groovin' with some energy.

Veggies: Well, I talk about it, talk about it, Talk about it, talk about it.

Talk about, talk about, Talk about movin'

Children: Gotta move on (Gotta move on)

Gotta move on (Gotta move on)

Gotta move on. (Gotta move on)

Jimmy and Junior: Won't you take me to Funky Town? (repeat until song fades out)
