LYRICS

Groovin’ Time

It’s groovin’ time
That’s what my baby told me
If you can’t groove me, boy
You might as well let me be
It’s lovin’ time
That’s what my baby told me
If you can’t love me, boy
You might as well let me be
Now, she said she don’t want me hangin’ in the street, now
Don’t want me goin’ down seein’ old Pete, now
Hangin’ out on Broadway is not her stick, now
Stayin’ up late at night is not her kick, now
Wants me to tease her all the time, now
Wants me to love her later in the night, now
That’s what she told me
If you can’t do it, boy
You might as well let me be
Baby, it’s groovin’ time
That’s what my baby told me
If you can’t groove me, boy
You might as well let me be
Said she don’t want me shootin’ no pool
Runnin’ in the street actin’ like a doggone fool
Said she just want me to stay at home, now
Just tend to my business, leave other people alone, now
Said she don’t want me hangin’ in them nightclubs
All them Broadway funky, funky nightclubs
That’s what she told me
If you can’t do it, boy
You might as well let me be
It’s groovin’ time
That’s what my baby told me
If you can’t groove me, boy
You might as well let me be
I said, said now, it’s groovin’ time
I got to get with my baby now
It’s groovin’ time
I gotta get back home to the little girl
I said she wanna groove me, yeah
I know she wanna groove, yeah
