Come here sister.....Papa's in the swing
He ain't too hip...about that new breed thing
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
Alligator.

Come here sister
Papa's in the swing
He ain't too hip now
But I can dig the new breed thing;
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
And the thing....like the Boomerang.
Hey....come on
Hey! Hey.....come on
Hey! Hey....says he's uptight...he's out of sight...
Come on. See whatcha know. Come on.

Without James RHCP wouldn't have that funky bass.....just sayin'. Usually I try to have tolerance when people don't like artists I like, but saying James isn't music is INSANE. INSANITY. I could see saying you don't like his music, but just all out implying he has no talent is crazy. I don't like Elvis for the most part, but I'll give credit when credit's due. He was talented, but I'll still pass on him.

Be nice loser.
It may sound common to some, nowadays, after about everybody has ripped off the Godfather of Soul (etc.), especially since the sampling technique came along, but this was truly revolutionary at the time. As far as I'm concerned there's still nothing like it! James Brown was surely one of the musicians who forever changed the face of music.
These all seem to work: :dancingbanana: :guitarist: :jump:
james brown rocks. so does radio paradise. happy day.
ah c'mon. Classic bass riff and tight brass backup. It's not that bad.
Hugghn! Good God y'all! (Where's that funky emoticon?....there's not enough funk here to cover this!)
Yeah, but he\'s stood the test of time. :D
:cry: Why?
