  • Come back, cover
    Shades, good God
    It's a raid

    Cut off the lights
    And call the law
    Cut off the lights
    And call the law

    Standing over there
    The devil's on his way

    Call the law
    Call the law
    The devil's on his way

    Bring on the juice
    Bring on the juice
    Bring on the juice
    Bring on the juice
    Make me sweat

    Still good
    It's still good
    Still good
    It's still good

    Turn over
    Turn over
    Turn over

    Take me in the chain
    Take me in the chain
    Take me in the chain

    Tall women
    Is all I need
    Tall women
    Is what I want

    One more time
    I wanna give the drummer
    Some of this funky soul
    We got here

    You don't have to do
    No song, brother
    Just keep what you got
    Don't turn it loose
    Cause it's a mother

    When I count to four
    I want everybody to lay off
    Let the drummer go
    When I count to four
    I want you to come back in

    I got to holler
    I said it's in my feet
    Feels so sweet
    It's in my shake, good God
    About to work me to death

    It's in my shake
    About to work me to death
    It's in my shake
    I'm about to blow
    I'm about to blow

    One, two, three, four
    Get it

    Ain't it funky
    Ain't it funky
    Ain't it funky
    Ain't it funky
    One, two, three, four Writer/s: JAMES BROWN
