Papa Don't Take No Mess

Papa Don't Take No Mess

James Brown

Super! heavy! funk! hot! hot! hot! and bad!
Hey Papa don't take no mess
Papa don't take no mess
Papa is the man who can understand
How a man has to do whatever he can
Hit me!
Papa don't- Papa don't- Papa don't
Papa don't take no mess no
He don't take no mess
Now papa might grin
Drank a little taste of gin
Bet his last ten on a little game of skin
Hit me!
Wahoo Papa don't take no mess
Papa don't take no mess
Papa don't- Papa don't- Papa don't
Papa don't- Papa don't
Papa don't take no mess
Hey-hey!
Papa digs the chicks
If she look real slick hoo!
Papa rap is very quick
You devil it ain't no trick
Oh yeah!
Don't Papa- don't Papa- don't Papa-
Don't Papa- don't Papa- don't Papa-
Don't take no mess
Don't take no messs!
Wait! wait a minute
Look-a-here! Papa!
Don't take- Papa likes
'Cause when Papa gets uptight
He knows he's right
Huh! you got yourself a fight
Hit me!
Waaaahoooo!
Papa don't take no mess
Papa don't take nooo mess!
Papa don't- Papa don't- Papa don't
Papa don't- Papa don't- Papa don't
Papa don't take no mess
Oh yeah! alright!
Papa is the man who'll take a stand
Papa don't take no mess
Papa don't- papa don't papa don't
A don't a papa don't
Look! Dig this!
Papa didn't cuss
He didn't raise a whole lotta fuss
But when we did wrong
Papa beat the hell out of us uh!
Yeah-heeeeeey! don't
A don't papa- don't papa- don't papa
Don't papa- don't papa- don't papa
Papa don't take no mess
Papa don't take nooo mess!
I saw papa cry
When he thought that I would die
Look-a-here
I saw papa cry
When he thought that I would die
He says something was in his eye
I knew it was a lie
Mama said "Papa's smart"
Papa got a whole lot-ta heart
And papa would do his part
When the game get hard
Hit me! Oooooh!
Papa don't- papa don't- papa don't
Papa don't- papa don't

Papa don't take no mess
