the funk of love

unite me into blue haze

out beyond blue yonder

I'm searching for it, boy, i'm searching for it

mother where are you?

lonely, terrified, open, barren, naked soul

eyes sincerely yearning for blue yonder

"take me to another place"

"it's going to be ok child"

take me to that blue yonder

where i can have a drink with my friends, former friends,

and maybe even my enemies

"take me child...."

take me to the bar where joni mitchell is singing

and the smoke is surrounding us in her blue haze

take me to the club where coltrane is blowing his horn

I want to see Joni Mitchell and Bob Dylan is singing, while coltrane is blowing his horn,

they are all telling us of love,

while the world is holding hands, embracing each other

and I take that wounded child of mine and hold him

and sing Bob Marley to him, "everything is going to be allright now"

stepping into oneness and truth

"everything is going to be allright"

bring that funk people, brink that funk

the funk is coming, the love is coming,

the glorious country, hiphop, bluesy, surreal hazy, glorious, wispy, smoky funk

bring me the funk

bring me the funk of the ages

bring me the funk of love.
