James Brown

"You Got To Have A Mother For Me (Long Version)"

[Intro]
Alright
Hey  hey hey hey hey hey

[Verse 1]
Some  like 'em short and some like 'em tall
Some like 'em fat, skinny legs and all
But I like 'em boss‚ and I like 'em proud‚ ha
And  when they walk‚ you know they draw a crowd
See,  ha, you gotta have a mother for me‚ ha

[Verse 2]
Hey hey, there was a time when I was all alone
I  had a secret, thought I was gone
But somebody dug me‚ and said now I see
What you doin' to stay ahead of me
But I said, but I told you when I get burnt, I use sav
And  when I want lovin', a mother she got to have
See, alright, you got to have a mother for me
Oh

[Bridge]
You see, got to have a mother for me
When you walk, all the guys talk
You see, hey

Alright now, hahahaha
Hey, hey hey

[Verse 3]
Now, if you're tall and pretty, slim and dark
That's alright too, if you got that question mark
Looka here, you can't have everything going, you got to have a part
If you got a mother, baby, you know you can't take a halt
You see, you got to have a mother for me
One more thing
Do the Funky Four Corners, go on and do the Horse
Show everybody where you're at, and now I know you got to be boss
So when you start doing your little thing, stop at a small ring
Ha, but get back, baby, James Brown is gonna do his thing
You see, ha, you got to have a mother for me, alright

[Bridge]
Your high-heeled sneakers, still alright
Your slip-in mules are out of sight
But as long as you groove when you walk
And when you're fast, the fellas talk
You see, ha, you got to have a mother for me
Hey hey hey hey, oh
Looka here, hey hey hey hey
Uh, hey hey hey hey hey
Maceo, hey hey hey hey hey
Maceo, oh
Hahaha, bring it up
Oh, Lord, Lord, Lord, Lord, Lord
Oh, oh, hey, ha
Baby, let me see you shake when you walk
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Wait a minute

[Verse 4]
Your high-heeled sneakers are still alright
Your slip-in mules are still out of sight
But as long as you groove me, groove me when she walks
And when she asks, the fellas begin to talk
See, you got to have a mother for me

[Verse 5]
Now there was a time when I was all alone
I had a secret, baby, thought I was gone
But somebody dug me, and said now I see
What you're doin', brother, to stay ahead of me
But I said, I told you when I get burnt, I use my sav
And when I want my lovin', a mother she got to have
I said but when I want my lovin', when I want my lovin'
When I, when I, when I, when I, when I, hey

[Outro]
When I want my lovin', when I want my lovin'
When I want my lovin', when I want my lovin', hey, ow
I got to have it, hey hey hey, give it to me
Got to have it, hey hey hey hey, give it to me
Ah, hi, hi, hi, I want, I want my, I want my, I want my
Hey hey hey, oh-ho
I want my, hi hi hi, I got to, oh, oh, oh, ow
Huh, Lord have mercy, hey, hey hey
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Oh, Maceo, Maceo, oh, ow
Hey hey, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby
Ow, baby, give it to me, baby, got to have it
