"Get Down" as written by James Brown, Fred Wesley, Charles Bobbit, Nasir Jones and James (outside) Brown....
Tell me, brother, how do you feel
When that pretty little girl over there ain't for real
Tell me, sister, how do you feel
When that dandy haired brother ain't for real

You gotta get down, down
Down, down, down, down
You gotta get down, down
Down, down, down, down

Tell me, people, how do you feel
When the president and the secretaries ain't real
Tell me, people, what you'd do
If the runnin' of the world is all left up to you

You gotta get down, down
Down, down, down, down
You gotta get down, down
Down, down, down, down

Early in the mornin'
Before you eat your breakfast
You gotta get down, you gotta get down
Early in the mornin'
Before you eat your breakfast
You gotta get down

The Super cool is your pleasure
And you wanna find somethin' better
You gotta get down
Super cool is your pleasure
Wanna find somethin' better
You gotta get down

?
?
You gotta get down
Police and the Justice
Laughin' while they bust us
You gotta get down

If you're running the country
Then you ain't runnin' it funky
You gotta get down, you gotta get down
If you're running the country
You ain't runnin' funky
You gotta get down

You gotta get down, down, down, down
Down, down, down, down, down
You gotta get down, down, down, down
Down, down, down, down, down

Down, down, down, down
Down, down, down, down, down
Down, down, down, down
Down, down, down
