about

Every week's theme is accompanied by 3 fake titles (as examples). One of the fake titles for this week caught my eye and I decided to write my own original song with that title.

The theme was "Abecedarian" (songs with single letters in the title).

There is a video for this song at youtu.be/AMypezrUoTQ?hd=1

Track Name: Take the A Train to Funkytown
-=[Lyrics]=-

eng||If I'm feelin' groovy
I must be in the zone
Don't try to make me mellow out
or you'll be on your own

'Cos I just feel like dancin'
That would be outta sight
The music is entrancing
so don't be so uptight

I wanna take the A Train to Funkytown
Don't think I'm ever comin' back
So long, Squaresville. I'm not hangin' 'round
I'm outta here and that's a fact


If everything is dynomite
I guess Times are Good
I really hope you're diggin' it
And I'm not misunderstood

'Cos if I've got a fever
it must be Saturday
And I don't mean to freak you out
but I still might anyway

'Cos I'm gonna take the A Train to Funkytown
No point in ever comin' back
Seeya, Squaresville. I'm not hangin' 'round
I'm outta here and that's a fact


If I was born to boogie
then I must be a knight
'Cos every time we're gettin' down
the moment seems so right

If life is just a disco
then I am just a duck
The only time I love you
is every time we f--

...finally take the A Train to Funkytown
It's the only place I really wanna be
I'm not lettin' anybody get me down
'Cos Funkytown is callin' out for me


I was talkin' X with Dr. Sex
He said your O Face is More Like a Q
As best I can remember, he's correct
How does he know so much about you?


I heard he took the A Train to Funkytown
But there's no way that can be true
Don't care about the rumours that are goin' 'round
Just wanna go to Funkytown with you

We're gonna take the A Train to Funkytown
And we're never comin' back
Goodbye, Squaresville. We're not hangin' 'round
We're outta here and that's a fact
