Cage The Elephant – James Brown lyrics
Run around the corner
Fell asleep in the sun
You had to move into the shade
Before you fire the gun

We got a hunger for destruction
Need someone to bleed
You sealed the deal before the dawn
You let your actions proceed

Some sunny day they're gonna come for you
Some sunny day they're gonna come for you
Sooner or later said you know that it's true
Some sunny day they're gonna come for you

You think you're so sly
You tried to roll by
You played the safe side
You said will somebody take me

Down town
Another James Brown
You made the same sound
You said will somebody write this down... Down

Fightin' back revenge
You've got you're face to the ground
You make excuses for the madness
You've been hanging around

You built a house up in the trees
So you could see everyone
You set the clock and had a run
You set the clock and had a run

Some sunny day they're gonna come for you
Some sunny day they're gonna come for you
Sooner or later said you know that it's true
Some sunny day they're gonna come for you

You think you're so sly
You tried to roll by
You played the safe side
You said will somebody take me

Down town
Another James Brown
You made the same sound
You said will somebody write this down... Down
Some sunny day they're gonna come for you
Some sunny day they're gonna come for you
Sooner or later said you know that it's true
Some sunny day they're gonna come for you

You think you're so sly
You tried to roll by
You played the safe side
You said will somebody take me

Down town
Another James Brown
You made the same sound
You said will somebody write this down
