Funk You



04/07/2023 Click here for Spotify, Apple Music, or YouTube. “Funk You” is my 38th official release. This track is a response to Olivia Rodrigo’s songs “Deja Vu” and “Good For You.” Although I’ve never met Olivia it’s written as if I were the one she was talking about in those two songs. This fictional response was written based on the lyrics from those two songs. I intentionally published this around the two-year anniversary of Olivia Rodrigo’s Sour album and the “Good For You” and “Deja Vu” music video which was released on April 1st, 2021.


Just to be clear, Olivia is NOT a cosmic luve. I have cosmic luves but this has nothing to do with that. This has everything to do with making something popular that can be easily understood and drawn into. I am intentionally doing this just to sell music. I think this is a track my audience would enjoy and be able to relate to. I love those two songs by Olivia and it’s a good concept piece to introduce my music based off a popular artist’s work. I also don’t wanna make break-up songs about my real cosmic luves.


The track was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Sam Peters at La Luna Recording in Kalamazoo, Michigan. The beat is by Tantubeats.com and the cover art is from Gigzlogo from Fiverr.


You can see me talk about this blog post from last Sunday Update here:



Lyrics:


Look, I just want the world to know I’m the one those two songs are about, listen


You might get funked up

I might funk you up

Become the harmony and get tough love


Olivio Rodrigo likes to avoid things

You’d probably support me

If you knew the whole story


Uw girl, you so smooth

Make’n it look like you got used

I’m not perfect, couldn’t live up to you

I couldn’t give you perfect picture views


I just wanna good girl to like me for me

Not the company I keep and the crowd I bring

You were focused on looks and how things seemed

I wanted it to be real, so you never got a ring


She was attached now like “Good for You”

So happy and healthy despite the news

She thinks money buys happiness, but we got our problems

At least my girl recognizes that we got them


No fantasy world, where she’s a princess

She brag’n to her friends about being a misfit

Like um real and you’re a unicorn

A fictitious creature, you brought this on


I swear you got me that jacket

As a symbol of status

And your assumptive vision of fashion

But I didn’t like it, you went batshit

And told me that I look fat in it

(Uw)


You might get funked up

I might funk you up

Become the harmony and get tough love


Cuz Olivio Rodrigo likes to avoid things

Yeah, you’d probably support me

If you knew the whole story


Cuz Uw girl, you so smooth

Make’n it look like you got used

I’m not perfect, couldn’t live up to you

I couldn’t give you perfect picture views


I just wanna good girl to like me for me

Not the company I keep and the crowd I bring

You were focused on looks and how these seemed

I wanted it to be real, so you never got a ring


You know strawberry ice cream is my favorite

I shared it with my sister, you’re weak and basic

I’m a minimalist, I hate two spoons

You just didn’t like the wooden one I brought to reuse


That’s what’s recycled, a shared experience

I only think of you as a piece of it

It wasn’t love, it was infatuation

I’ve always loved Billy Joel but with you, it’s faded


Yeah I think of you, and get “Deja Vu”

But when you come up now I play the blues

But I’ll tell you the truth, I feel used

I was always your ideal and never real to you


You might get funked up

I might funk you up

Become the harmony and get tough love


Cuz Olivio Rodrigo likes to avoid things

Yeah, you’d probably support me

If you knew the whole story


Cuz Uw girl, you so smooth

Make’n it look like you got used

I’m not perfect, couldn’t live up to you

Couldn’t give you perfect picture views


I just wanna good girl to like me for me

Not the company I keep and the crowd I bring

You were focused on looks and how these seemed

I wanted it to be real, so you never got a ring


You might get funked up

I might funk you up

Become the harmony and get tough love


You might get funked up

I might funk you up

Become the harmony and get tough love


For you baby, I tried to be so great

But it’s you baby, you’re oh so fake

The way you felt, I felt the same

But why it won’t work out, you’re also to blame, cuz


For you baby, I tried to be so great

But it’s you baby, you’re oh so fake

The way you felt, I felt the same

But why it won’t work out, you’re also to blame
