Id this (1970?) (Soul?) song?

I heared it on the radio a few days ago, and one of the recurring lines was something to the effect of “too high to get over, too low to get under,” which reminded me of Michael Jackson’s “Wanna Be Starting Something.”

It was a male group, and I’m approximating the vintage from other music I heard on the same station. But. . .

That’s not what got my attention. I started listening because part of the non-lyrical music sounded a lot like the intro to David Ruffin’s Walk Away from Love (1975). Then I heard the lyrics.

Psychedelic Shack?

“One Nation Under a Groove,” Funkadelic?

Biffy beat me to it.


ETA: The Temptations, 1969

Here’s a chance to dance our way out of our constriction

Ready or not, here we come

Gettin down on… the one which we believe in

Not the answer to the OP, but still one of the best funk songs ever. Of course, Flashlight is even funkier, but this is a great example of the funkentelechy, let me tell ya doodoo chasers.
