Identify this song "Gather round gather round gather round..." in the new-funk style...omg halp.

I was in Dick's Sporting Goods last night and a song came on I've never heard. I tried to open google to listen to it but it wouldn't open. I tried googling lyrics as it played and thought I'd found it. I had not, and now I don't remember the rest of the words and I'm sad because it was a slapper. Even went so far as to contact the Dick's store, who tells me they get a playlist from corporate but don't know what the songs are.

Details as I remember them:

It sounds like the new takes on funk that we're seeing from like Bruno Marks or maybe Mark Ronson

There were a lot of voices in the song, one in particular sorta sounded like an old man.

Several of the lines were more spoken, maybe in a B-52's style, or maybe like Monster Mash.

The talking sorta voice of the old-man sounding guy would sorta tell a story and then be like "Now gather round" and then later on "gather round gather round gather round"...and some group singing in call/reply style.

It was NOT -
Gather Round by Earth Wind and Fire
Gather Round by Elliott Yamin
Gather Round by Two-9
It wasn't Third Day or the Kinks either.

Response by poster: coevals thanks so much for trying, but that's not it! This fella is way too young and this is way more old school rap than the song I heard. Thanks though!

Best answer: No guesses from my brain, but I googled it and this sounds just like what you described: Rizzle Kicks - Put Your Two's Up.

By the way, I personally still use Shazam and it amazes me how it can pick up songs in noisy stores where the music source is far away, and usually quickly.

Oh my god! I’ve been meaning to ask this question here for YEARS. I know exactly what song you’re talking about.......... but unfortunately I don’t know what song it actually is either. :’( But your description is almost word for word how I described it at the time.

I’ll be watching...

She. And I have a browser extension that lets me highlight text and drag it to google it, so I just highlighted and googled "gather round gather round gather round" from your question. The lyrics were the second result.
