Unnhhhh, all right!
New city, new year, new challenge!
Yeah.

What have we got here, today, what are we doin', here?

"Disco Monday."

All right.

Yeah! Ok!

Aw, but it's just not gon' be the same without Herbie.

Herbie! When did you get here?

Three months ago... why didnt you tell me?

Yeah, never mind, never mind, we got a disco challenge. You, uh, you got 
anything for it?

Naw, naw, naw. We did that last year.

Naw, Herbie, we did that.

We need something fresh, something new, something disco.

Now, come on, give me a disco bass line!

Unh! Yeah!
That is what I am talkin' about!
Mmm!

Uh! 
Ha! 
Oh! 
Yeah! 
Oonh! 
Ha!

Aw, everybody, Mr. Herbert Finkelstein on bass once again! UNH!

Aw, Herbie, but we need hand claps and we don't have the Texas All State High 
School Handclap Choir up here.

You know a guy.

The Milwaukee Municipal Handclap Enthusiast Ensemble?

All right. We'll give it a shot!

Oohhh. Yeah.

Awww yeah! Thats in the pocket!
Keep it goin'.
Unh!

Ha!
Yeah!

Ok, gonna tell you a story about a guy. Uh, yeah, ok... It's me. And it's not that 
great a story. But we gotta talk about something. Hand clappers, you cut out on 
the verses, but come back in when we get to the hook, got it?

Herbie, you just keep doing your thing, man. 

A year ago I was losing sleep
My hair had started turning grey
But I had to work, had to get that cash
Didn't have no time to play

But then a friend of mine called me on the phone
She said, "I feel sorry for you, Ray"
"Come hang with my friends, we're gonna set the tone,"
"We're gonna write a song a day!"

I had to think about it, uh... hey, hey guys...
Stop clapping. Stop clapping.

Stop clapping.

All right, all right.
All right.

Ah, look, now I know it sounded like we were goin' to the hook, but I still have 
some more to say, we got some other stuff to get to first.

Ah, ok.

Hey, Herbie, this... I dunno, this sounds like it needs something.
Guitar, yeah.
You play... oh, well you playin' bass. 

I don't play.

Hey, hand clappers, any of you play guitar?
Your grandma does.
And she's... right there. Of course she is.
All right, let's give it a shot.

All right, Grandma!
All right.
So now, uh, hey, when we get to the hook it's gonna have to get some... a little 
bit more funky, all right? So, you know, just... let go... at that point. Uh...

All right, Herbie, I'm gonna, I'm gonna keep going now.

I had to think about it, had to find the time
I didn't think it could be done
But I wrote a lot, didn't get no sleep
But I sure had a lot of fun.

I got to disco, gotta move my feet
I got to dance to this disco beat
I got to disco, don't want to be no chump
I got to disco to this boogie-thump!

HOOK! 

We're gonna git down
Gonna do it right
We're gonna git down
Gonna funk all night

We're gonna git down
Gonna do it right
We're gonna git down
Gonna funk all night

We're gonna git down
Gonna do it right
We're gonna git down
Gonna funk all night

We're gonna git down
Gonna do it right
We're gonna git down
Gonna funk all night

Aww, Man! That is a hook!

You... you know what? We... We're done with the story. Nobody cares about the 
rest of the story. We're just gonna sing the hook.
We're just gonna sing it over, and over, and over.
You guys, bring that back in!
We're just goin'!
Go! Go! Go!

We're gonna git down
Gonna do it right
We're gonna git down
Gonna funk all night

We're gonna git down
Gonna do it right
We're gonna git down
Gonna funk all night

We're gonna git down
Gonna do it right
We're gonna git down
Gonna funk all night

We're gonna git down
Gonna do it right
We're gonna git down
Gonna funk all night

Oh yeah!

We're gonna git down
Gonna do it right
We're gonna git down
Gonna funk all night

Now this is some disco funk!

We're gonna git down
Gonna do it right
We're gonna git down
Gonna funk all night

This could just go all night.

We're gonna git down
Gonna do it right
We're gonna git down
Gonna funk all night

Ain't no reason to stop.
We gonna keep goin'!

We're gonna git down
Gonna do it right
We're gonna git down
Gonna funk all night

Can't stop! Won't stop!
