James Brown

"I’m Not Demanding (Part 1)"

[Intro]
We need confrontation for communication

[Verse 1]
How long will it take for people to learn
That they aren't free while their brothers are slaves?
Everybody's got to lend a helping hand
If we expect to walk together in this proud land

[Pre-Chorus]
People, they are born, they're all the same
They got pride, and they all have shame
They all had heartaches, and they all have pain
Heh, looka here

[Chorus]
Oh, I'm dictatin', and I'm not demandin'
All I want for everybody is peace and understandin'

[Verse 2]
We must all come together with our back to the wheel
And all walk tall, let no man have to kneel
Be it black, white, yellow or green
If we all do this, then there will be no scene, huh

[Chorus]
Oh, I'm not dictatin', and I'm not demandin'
All I want for everybody is peace and understandin'

[Outro]
And understandin', yes siree, for you and me
I'm not dictatin', oh no
I'm not tellin', I'm not tellin'
Yes, I'm askin', and I'm beggin'
Please, understand me
Please, understand me
I don't wanna fight, just wanna do what's right
Please, let me in, let me be your friend
Everybody, everybody, be it black, white or green
There will never never be...
