Zapp & Roger- More Bounce To The Ounce

by

The sonic correspondent of the word “sex”.

Zapp (also known as the Zapp Band) was a soul and funk band formed in 1978 by brothers Roger Troutman , Larry Troutman, Lester Troutman, and Terry Troutman, and also included Bobby Glover, Eddie Barber, Jannetta Boyce, Jerome Derrickson, Sherman Fleetwood, Gregory Jackson, and Michael Warren.

Zapp is perhaps best known for its huge 1980 R&B hit “More Bounce to the Ounce,” co-produced by Bootsy Collins. The group recorded five albums under the name Zapp, and Roger Troutman recorded five others under his own name.

Lyrics


More bounce

Much more bounce

Bounce

La-la-la-la-la
Much more
I like to bounce
And I’m gonna make you bounce
Much more bounce

More bounce to the ounce (Much more bounce)
More bounce to the ounce (Yeah)
More bounce to the ounce (Much more)
More bounce to the ounce (Work it with me, bounce)
More bounce to the ounce (To the ounce)
More bounce to the ounce (Mmm)
More bounce to the ounce (I like it, I like it)
More bounce to the ounce
More bounce to the ounce
More bounce to the ounce (Much more)
More bounce to the ounce (I like it when we bounce)
More bounce to the ounce (And I dig it)

Get-get-get-get-get-get on the dance floor, baby
