  • I got the feelin'
    Baby, baby
    I got the feelin'

    You don't know what you do to me
    People are heavy, down in misery
    Hey, yeah, alright
    Hey, hey, good lord

    I got the feelin', alright
    Baby, baby, baby
    Baby, baby, baby
    Baby, baby, baby
    Baby, baby

    I got the feelin' baby
    Baby, sometimes I'm up, sometimes I'm down
    My heart, I'm around the town
    I'm level with the ground
    Baby, I said level with the ground
    Well baby, you treat me, you treat me bad

    No, no, I know no
    No you don't mean it now
    Sometimes I roam
    But, I'll be coming back home
    Sometimes, I seem to be fly
    I just don't know when to say bye bye

    Hey baby
    Baby, I got that feelin' baby
    I have it, alright

    Baby, baby, baby
    Baby, baby, baby
    Baby, baby, baby
    Baby, baby, I'm on now

    Come on now
    Oh, oh, oh Writer/s: JAMES BROWN
