Come On Baby!

Very often GFR chose to cover songs as the genuine garage band they always remained, including 60’s pop hit “The Loco-Motion,” written by Carole King and Gerry Goffin in 1962. It was the band’s specialty to take covers of classic rock songs, make them their own and just jam out for hours and hours.

Interesting Fact: This was Grand Funk’s biggest hit. Their other #1 was “We’re An American Band.”

Performing the classic 60’s funky rock hit, Grand Funk brings the crowd “The Loco-Motion” with their own energy and spunk and we cannot get enough of it. Originally, the song was supposed to be a fun, upbeat poppy hit when Little Eva recorded it in 1962, but GFR transforms it into something no one ever expected it to be with kick ass guitar solos.

Clearly the band was taken by the contagious beat and saw themselves creating a rock masterpiece out of it, which no one ever expected. Enjoy this awesome live performance of one of the greatest and most under appreciated rock bands of the 70’s.

+ Loco-Motion Lyrics +

Everybody’s doing a brand-new dance, now
(Come on baby, do the loco-motion)
I know you’ll get to like it if you give it a chance now
(Come on baby, do the loco-motion)
My little baby sister can do it with me
It’s easier than learning your A-B-C
So come on, come on, do the Loco-motion with me
You gotta swing your hips, now

Come on
Jump up
Jump back
Well, now, I think you’ve got the knack
Wow, wow

Now that you can do it, let’s make a chain, now
(Come on baby, do the loco-motion)
A chug-a chug-a motion like a railroad train, now
(Come on baby, do the loco-motion)
Do it nice and easy, now, don’t lose control
A little bit of rhythm and a lot of soul

Come on, come on
And do the Loco-motion with me

Move around the floor in a Loco-motion
(Come on baby, do the loco-motion)
Do it holding hands if you get the notion
(Come on baby, do the loco-motion)

There’s never been a dance that’s so easy to do
It even makes you happy when you’re feeling blue
So come on, come on, do the Loco-motion with me

(Come on baby, do the loco-motion)
So come on, come on and do the Loco-motion with me
(Come on baby, do the loco-motion)
So come on, come on and do the Loco-motion with me
(Come on baby, do the loco-motion)
(Come on baby, do the loco-motion)
(Come on baby, do the loco-motion)
(Come on baby, do the loco-motion)
(Come on baby, do the loco-motion)
