"Papa's Got a Brand New Bag" as written by and Sadler/shocklee/brown/neville/breen/robinson/conlo....
Come here sister Papa's in the swing
He ain't too hip about that new bred babe
He 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 babe
He ain't nod rag, 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 everyday and every night
The things like the Boomerang

He, come on
Hey, hey come on
Hey, hey, he's set you up tight
Out of sight

Come on, see what you know
Come on, see what you know
I just want you

Now let me, now let me tell you what to do
He's doing the Jerk, he's doing the Fly
Don't play him cheap cause you know he ain't shy
Doing the Monkey, the Mashed Potatoes, Jump back Jack
See you later alligator

Come here sister
