Sometimes, the going
Gets a little bit tough now

(Oh, baby, don't you weep)
When the times get hard
And the friends get few now
(Oh, baby, don't you weep)
No one to turn to and
Nothing to do now
(Oh, baby, don't you weep)
You're screaming your heart out
(Oh, baby, don't you weep)
Til your back and is
Soaking wet now
(Oh, baby, don't you weep)
You're still looking for mercy
(Oh, baby, don't you weep)
And still, you can't forget now

Screaming your heart out
Your back gets soaking wet
You know that you used to love him
And still, you can't forget

You know sometimes it's hard
Nowhere to go
No one to love
Tried everything you know

Haaa, baby
(Oh, baby, don't you weep)
And, ahhh, baby
(Oh, baby, don't you weep)
And, ahhh, baby
(Oh, baby, don't you weep)
I want you to play
I want you to play a little song

(Do doop doopty doop)
You know, a friend of mine
Told me one time
(Do doop doopty doop)
I think it was back in 1959
(Do doop doopty doop)
He said, darling, you send me
(Do doop doopty doop)
He said, if you call me
I'll come running back to you
(Do doop doopty doop)

And another friend of mine told me
He said, if you need me, call me
(Do doop doopty doop)
You see, I got a lot of
Friends in my business
And another friend of mine
He told me
(Do doop doopty doop)
You better stop dogging
Me around, now
(Do doop doopty doop)

And a recent friend
Of mine, he came up
(Do doop doopty doop)
And you know what he said
(Do doop doopty doop)
It's too late
(Do doop doopty doop)
Another friend of mine in a group
I'm talking bout Bobby boy, now
(Do doop doopty doop)
He said a young man
Sings his heart out
(Do doop doopty doop)
He walked up, he said, James
I had so much trials and tribulations
(Do doop doopty doop)
But I found out now

(Do doop doopty doop)
And you see, another friend
Of mine, he told me
He called me Bishop
(Do doop doopty doop)
He said, James
You was born to lose
(Do doop doopty doop)
I wouldn't take that for an answer
I went on down the street
(Do doop doopty doop)

I said to myself
I said, James Brown
(Do doop doopty doop)
Please, please, please, please
(Do doop doopty doop)
Come along, someone now

Aaaah, baby
(Do doop doopty doop)
Aaaah, baby
(Do doop doopty doop)
I'm gonna call a friend
Of mine in a band now
(Do doop doopty doop)
I want him to come up
And testify now
(Do doop doopty doop)
I want you to blow
(Do doop doopty doop)
I want you to blow for the people
Who need someone to love now
(Do doop doopty doop)
I want you to blow for the people
Who don't have no one to love
(Do doop doopty doop)
I want you to blow for somebody
That I lost long time ago
(Do doop doopty doop)
I want him to blow better than
On anybody's record now
(Do doop doopty doop)
I want you to blow for yourself one time
(Do doop doopty doop)

Aaaah, baby
(Oh, baby, don't you weep)
Aaaah, baby
(Oh, baby, don't you weep)
Aaaah, baby
(Oh, baby, don't you weep)
I think I'm gonna scream
A little louder and maybe
You'll come on home now

Ow, oh, baby
(Oh, baby, don't you weep)
Aaaah, baby
(Oh, baby, don't you weep)
Aaaah, baby
(Oh, baby, don't you weep)...
