The Lyrics

The clubs were alive
With the sound of Rufus
With booms from a bass
That still ring in ears

Been years since the charts
Had the tunes of Rufus
With Miss Chaka Khan
Charted funk frontiers

My floor used to thump
Like the hoofs of the herds
And leaves took their leave from the trees
And hair used to fly from the cat, oh my!
When a note hit high C.

Their songs had a hook
Made me trip and fall
Rhythmless was my shame
I’d sing through the night
Like a bear who is mating a train

Their grooves held a thrill
Not a hint of moping
Not songs like today
That are TV borne.

No feet are at rest
With the sound of Rufus
Makes me miss them more.

Thanks, AFW. Do a search for "Tell Me Something Good." I will not be responsible if your feet start to shuffle uncontrollably.
