Lyrics

Show me how funky
Is your Chicken now
Let me see ya get away get away
When the band starts kickin' now

Oh! If you can do the funky chicken better than I can
I don't mind givin' in
To the badest man

'Cause I say I
Like competition
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!
'Cause a little competition now
Gives me a condition now

Oh! Better common, common, common
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!

Put yourself in the grove
And get ready to move Common

Mmm... You've been spreadin' rumours
Of the badest on two feet
Let me tell you buddy
I'm ready to compete
We gonna have a show down
I'm ready how about you
Oh! Gonna dance til' the midnight hour
Til' the sun comes shinnin' through

Oh! Common, common, common! Yeah...

Put yourself in the grove
And get ready to move Common

We're gonna have a show down
Gonna get a low down
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah...
Ho down
You wanna be around
Gonna have a show down
We're gonna get low down
You better not slow down

In Third Album

This song is the 7th song in this album.[2]
