James Brown – Papa's Got A Brand New Bag lyrics

Come here sister..... Papa's in the swing
He ain't too hip... About that new breed babe
He ain't no drag
Papa's got a brand new bag

Come here mama.... And dig this crazy scene
He's not too fancy.... But his line is pretty clean
He ain't no drag.
Papa's got a brand new bag

He's doing the Jerk....
He's doing the Fly
Don't play him cheap 'cause you know he ain't shy
He's doing the Monkey, the Mashed Potatoes, Jump back Jack, See you later

Come here sister
Papa's in the swing
He ain't too hip now
But I can dig that new breed babe;
He ain't no drag
He's got a brand new bag

Oh papa! He's doing the Jerk
Papa... He's doing the Jerk
He's doing the twist... Just like this,
He's doing the Fly ev'ry day and ev'ry night
The thing's.... Like the Boomerang.
Hey.... Come on
Hey! Hey..... Come on
Hey! Hey.... He's pu tight... Out of sight...
Come on. Hey! Hey!
