The Lyrics

Malcolm Higgins posted a James Brown parody back on the 26th to this same tune. That's because Malcolm is fast and good. I'm just trying for one of those.
Whoa-oa-oa!
I'm not dead, despite what you've read now
I'm not dead, despite what you've read now
Not dead, not dead, I'm with God

Whoa!
I'm all right, up here in the light
I'm all right, up here in the light
All right, all right, I got soul

When I look down from above
I know you'll always have my songs
And when I'm feeling all the love
I know I'm where I belong

And I can fly, all over the sky
I can fly, all over the sky
I fly, I fly, I got wings

Well I'm up here with a band
Got Jimi, Eddie, and the boys
And we are always in demand
We're making heavenly noise

And I got funk, and that ain't no bunk
I got funk, and that ain't no bunk
Got funk, got funk, evermore

Whoa!
Don't despair, 'cause I'm not there now
Don't despair, 'cause I'm not there
Feel good, so good, I'm up here
Feel good, so good, I'm up here
Feel good, so good, where's the beer?
Hey!
I figure most everybody will know who Jimi is. Eddie is Eddie Hazel, a pioneering funk guitarist and key player in Funkadelic.
