Are you real,
or just a poster child.
Are you real,
you know,
you drive em wild.
I'm a poster child,
not unlike you.
up in the spotlight,
could have been you
As a poster child,
poster child of funk.
.Pumpety pump.
I know how your waters flow,
Your ole man by the river
told me so.
he said 
give you a kiss, like this,
then go,
with the heave it and ho.
Cuz, noddin off the way you do
, pump pump,
sometimes you get a junkie's flu,
pump pump
Said, shame on me? 
no shame, where were you?
I was there for you,
little poster child,,,
poster child of junk
pumpity punk

Emmaculate connection,
soft words fall down like rain,
you blow in like the wind,
but you hit me like a train.
But,get off-line, get real,
 don't want your tired old spiel,
come on downtown to these streets,
talk to everyone you meet,
and show me your best piece of work.
Let me tell you why
cuz, I'm your 
poster child
of funk
that's why.

Come into my power station
on-line fantasy.
Megabites are risin
don't you dare log out on me.

But,  get off  line, get real
don't want another tired old spiel
take it on down to these streets
talk to everyone you meet
and show me, show them, show us
your best piece
of work.
I'll tell you, once again, why
Cuz, I'm your poster child of funk
Don't give me more funky monkey junk
got enough already Freddy..
So, come over 
to where the air is fresh
the water cool
the grass forever green
and stoke my 
'magination on your smokin lap top machine.
Supersonic,electro-onic connector cable site,
you're right there at my table,
so let's rock on through the night
But, get off line,
keep it real, don't lay down 
some tired old shpiel.
And show me your best piece
of work.
Won't you be my auxillary
then I can be your main.
Telephone lines criss crossin,
'bout drives me insane.
So, get off line, 
take it down to the street,
elevatin'
talkin to everyone you meet,
demonstratin'
your best piece. of work.

then like me you
too will be a poster child
of funk
Pumpety Pump
