Ain't It Funky Now

This song is by Taj Mahal. and appears on the compilation album Discogs1 In Progress & in Motion 1965-1998 (1998)

I was born in New York City, raised in a Massachusetts town
I picked myself up baby and took a look around
Got jazzed on agriculture started pushing a plow
Oh life has been beautiful

Ain't it funky now?
Ooh, ain't it funky now?

Me father from Jamaica, my mother from the South
It opened up my eyes and ears and made me shut my mouth
Daddy died and left momma it really brought her down
She picked herself up and started working in the town
Oh life ain't all perfect

Ooh
Ain't it funky now?
Hey, mama! Ain't it funky now?

Big fine mama, you turn my lamp light down
Ooh, baby
I just got to have you around
You make me feel good, you make my body sound
Life with you is harmony

Ain't it funky now?
Ain't it funky now?

I will not live in your city, I will not live in your town
I will live in the country where there's grass and trees around
And dig the sun coming up and dig that moon going down
And stand out there on some dark country ground
Life has been beautiful

Ain't it funky now?
Ain't it funky now?

Born in New York City, raised in that Massachusetts town
Oh, I picked myself up and I took a look around
Got jazzed on agriculture, started pushing a plow
Oh life to me has been beautiful

Sugar

Ain't it funky now? Whoa
Ain't it funky now?
Ain't it funky now? Whoa
Ain't it funky now? Oh
Ain't it funky now?
Ain't it funky now? Ooh, ooh baby
Ain't it funky now?
Ain't it funky now?
