Que pasa, people
Que pasa, hit me

Ooh, get on down
I wanna get on the good foot
The good foot
I gotta get on the good foot

Going down to the crib
Let it all hang out
Where soulful people
Know what it's about

Going down to the crib
Let it all hang out
Where soulful people
Knows what it's about

Where people give a sign
And take your hand
And dancing to the music
Of the James Brown Band

They're dancing on the good foot
I gotta get on the good foot
I gotta do it on the good foot
Do it with your good foot

I said the long-haired hippies
And the Afro blacks
Can all get together
Across the tracks

And they party
On the good foot
You know they dance
On the good foot
Dance on the good foot

Ain't nothin' going on
But the rent
A whole lotta bills
And my money spent
And that's on my bad foot

You know my face
Is getting short and
I got the blues
I got a funky job
And I pay my dues

On the good foot
On the good foot
I gotta get on the good foot
Hey on the good foot
Get on the good foot

Drummer now
Hit it there
You gotta hit it
Get it, shuffle down
Come on, get it

On the good foot
On the good foot
On the good foot
Get on the good foot
On the good foot

On the good foot
Get on the good foot
On the good foot

Bass, bass
Hit it there
Hit it there
Stop the bass
Play on it now

Come on, get it
Get it
Get on the good foot

I gotta get on the good foot
Get on the good foot
Take that business, sister
I'm your fella
