Function At The Junction

Function At The Junction

Ramsey Lewis

I'm getting ready for the function at the junction
Brother, you'd better come on right now
Because everybody's gonna be there
We got people comin' from everywhere

We got Ling Ting Tong from China
Long Tall Sally from Carolina
We got 007, the private eye,
And he's bringin' all the guys from "I Spy"

Tell one, tell all, We gonna have a ball
Tell 'em bout the the function at the junction
Sister, you'd better come on right now
Talkin' 'bout that function at the junction
Brother, you'd better come on right now

We serving egg foo yung and barbecue
We got chicken dumplings and kidney stew
We gonna make big fun till the break of dawn
Gonna shake a tailfeather shoot, it's gonna be a run

Hold a shotgun on the rooster, and dare him to crow
Tell anybody sleepin say, get out on that floor

Tell one, tell all, We gonna have a ball!
Tell 'em bout the the function at the junction
Sister, you'd better come on right now
Tell 'em 'bout that function at the junction
Brother, you'd better come on right now

We got soul brothers, Jitterbugs
Hip cats with crazy hats
Pretty girls with pretty smiles
All decked out in the latest styles
Memphis Slim and Guitar Jim
Betty Boop and ooo-boop-e-doop
Mohair Sam from Alabam
Minnesota Fats from Hobo Flats
Gravitatin' Hip-shakin' cuties now
Talkin' bout some fascinatin' devastatin' beauties now
They all be gathering here, from far and near

For the Function at the Junction
Tell 'em bout the the function at the junction
Sister, you'd better come on right now
Tell 'em 'bout that function at the junction
Brother, you'd better come on right now

I'm getting' ready for the Function at the Junction
Sister, you'd better come on right now
Tell 'em 'bout that function at the junction
Brother, you'd better come on right now
For the function at the junction
