Papa’s Got A Brand New Bag

Papa’s Got A Brand New Bag
James Brown

Come here
Sister
Papa’s in the swing
He ain’t too hip
About that new breed thing
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 that 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
Every day and every night
The thing’s
Like the Boomerang
Hey
come on
Hey! Hey!
Come on
Hey! Hey!
He’s uptight
Out of sight…
Come on
Hey! Hey!

  1. Although it is widely published as “his line is pretty clean”, I think, strongly, that it is “his vines (clothes) is pretty clean.”
