Stomp – Brothers Johnson


THE BROTHERS JOHNSON
“Stomp”
(Johnson and Temperton)

Steppin’ out the weekends open wide
Fill it up let’s blast the jams and ride
While we’re cruisin’ around in the street
Listen up for the party in feet
Slap me five
that’s the place we’ve arrived
It’s alive
Ev’rybody take it to the top
We’re gonna stomp
All night
In the neighbourhood
Don’t it feel alright
Gonna stomp
All night
Wanna party
‘Til the morning light
Runnin’ runnin’ runnin’
The set is hot
There’s people wall to wall
Old ones young things
Short ones standing tall
Grab the one with the smile on her face
And hit the floor and stay right on the case
The heat is on
And the funk just won’t leave us alone
Ev’rybody take it to the top
We’re gonna Stomp
All night
In the neighbourhood
Don’t it feel all right
Gonna stomp
All night
Wanna party
‘Til the morning light
Gonna Stomp
All night
In the neighbourhood
Don’t it feel all right
Gonna stomp
All night
Wanna party
‘Til the morning light
STOMP
Stomp, step down in it
Put your foot where you feel the fit
Stomp you don’t want to quit
Put your heels where you’re feelin’ it
Stomp, step down in it
Put your foot where you feel the fit
Stomp you don’t want to quit
Put your heels where you’re feelin’ it
Stomp, step down in it
Put your foot where you feel the fit
Stomp you don’t want to quit
Put your heels where you’re feelin’ itGonna Stomp
All night
In the neighbourhood
Don’t it feel all right
Gonna stomp
All night
Wanna party
‘Til the morning light

Stomp
All night

In the neighbourhood
Don’t it feel all right
Gonna stomp
All night
Wanna party
‘Til the morning light..

    Well, Kevin, after reading this and watching the video, I believe I now understand what ‘funk’ means/is! And also ‘put your foot where it fits’. So what may I say about this: It’s kinda like the idea that ‘everyone’ has a mental ‘illness’, and this is just one of the ways to ‘cope with it’. “Let it out”.
    So my use of the term ‘that would be a voice’ in the last meeting, may I explain, possibly could regarded as having a similar extension. I was attempting to make the point that our voices often are, or originate within the ‘external context’, and something said may later be something that we have to put our foot on, as an adaptation of the lyric above.. So please, if I am every out of context, – please advise.
    Also found a poster on a post (what a coincidence”) tht advertises BATL Toronto – Battle/Axe to grind with stigma. Proceeds (expensive ticket price of 60-65 dollars.) to Partners for Mental Health. I have the advertisement, and will come to next meeting, hopefully, to give it to you. After all, you’re not charging for the ‘experience’!!!!
    Apart from that all the best, to all…

    • Hi Loreen
      Thanks for his, cool.
      I’m wondering if anything exists out of some context.
      “Stigma” is a case in point – since it wouldn’t exist without the mass acceptance of acts discrimination.
      🙂
