Le Freak

[Chorus]
Ah, freak out
Le freak, c'est chic
Freak out
Ah, freak out
Le freak, c'est chic
Freak out
 
[Verse 1]
Have you heard about the new dance craze
Listen to us, I'm sure you'll be amazed
Big fun to be had by everyone
It's up to you, it surely can be done
Young and old are doing it, I'm told
Just one try, and you too will be sold
It's called Le Freak, they're doing it night and day
Allow us, we'll show you the way
 
[Chorus]
Ah, freak out
Le freak, c'est chic
Freak out
Ah, freak out
Le freak, c'est chic
Freak out
 
[Verse 2]
All that pressure got you down
Has your head spinning all around
Feel the rhythm, check the rhyme
Come on along and have a real good time
Like the days of “Stompin' at the Savoy”
Now we freak, oh what a joy
Just come on down, to the 54
And find a spot out on the floor
 
[Chorus]
Ah, freak out
Le freak, c'est chic
Freak out
 
[Breakdown]
Now freak
I said freak
Now freak
 
[Verse 2]
All that pressure got you down
Has your head spinning all around
Feel the rhythm, check the rhyme
Come on along and have a real good time
Like the days of “Stompin' at the Savoy”
Now we freak, oh what a joy
Just come on down, to the 54
And find a spot out on the floor
 
[Chorus]
Ah, freak out
Le freak, c'est chic
Freak out
Ah, freak out
Le freak, c'est chic
Freak out
 
  • freak out:

    This song commemorates Studio 54 in New York City for its notoriously long customer waiting lines, exclusive clientele, and discourteous doormen. According to guitarist Nile Rodgers, the song was devised during New Year's Eve 1977, as a result of him and bassist Bernard Edwards' being refused entrance to Studio 54, where they had been invited by Grace Jones, due to her failure to notify the nightclub's staff. He said the lyrics of the refrain were originally "Fuck off!" rather than "Freak out!";[9] for the documentary "How to Make It in the Music Business", he said that 'fuck off' was what the doorman had said to him when he slammed the door on them; first it was changed to "freak off" after Rodgers mused that they wouldn't be able to say 'fuck off' on the radio, but that sounded "terrible", so he changed it to 'freak out'

  • “Stompin' at the Savoy”:

    a 1933 song composed by Edgar Sampson.

  • 54:

    Studio 54, a popular nightclub in New York City at the time.
