The Lyrics

In memoriam soulum, 1933-2006. Requiescat in pace funkyus.
(TRUMPET BLAST!)

Come here sister!
Papa's in the swing!
New level hip!
Got his halo, babe!
I gotta sing!
Papa's got some brand-new wings!

(guitar lick)
(TRUMPET BLAST!)

Come here mama!
And dig this heaven scene!
Lived so wacky!
But his soul is pretty clean!
I gotta sing!
Papa's got some brand-new wings!

(guitar lick)
(TRUMPET BLAST!)

Just watch him work!
Now he can fly!
Halo ain't cheap
and you know he ain't shy!
He's still so funky!
He's still so neato!
Jump back, Jack!
See him revvin', up in heaven!
Come here sister!
Papa's in the swing!
New level hip!
Got his halo, babe!
I gotta sing!
He's got some brand-new wings!

(guitar lick)
(TRUMPET BLAST!)

Oh, papa!
Still gotta work!
Papa!
Still gotta work!
A skyward twist, just like this!
His show is fly
every day and every night!
His thang
is for what he sang!

(guitar lick)
(TRUMPET BLAST!)

Hey!
Come on!
Hey Hey!
Come on!
Hey Hey!
He's pure light!
And out of sight!
Come on!
Hey Hey!
Come on!
Hey Hey!
Come on!
Hey Hey!
(repeat 'til fade)
Just because he's dead, doesn't mean he stops being the Hardest-Working Man In Show Business! He's got a very big audience now!
