Brown, James - Soul Power Lyrics




Know we need it, soul power
We got to have it, soul power
Know we want it, soul power
Got to have it, soul power
Give it to me, soul power
We need it, soul power, we need it, soul power
We got to have it, soul power

I want to get under your skin
If I get there, I've got to win
You need some soul, come on get some
And then you'll know, where I'm comin' from
I may lay in the cut and go along
And I'm still on the case and my rap is strong
Huh huh, hey
Go jump on my train, when I'm outta sight
Just check yourself, huh, and say, yeah you're right
Huh, hit me, give me, put it there, huh
Love me tender, and love me slow
If that don't get it, jump back for more
We gotta gotta gotta, get in the bracket
You know I like it, hey

Huh, look here, you gotta get in the bracket
You know I like it, all right, look in here, all right
Don't fall on the ground, you've got to get down
Down down down down...

Huh, huh, good god
I've got to ask you what we need, soul power
What we want, soul power
Got to have, soul power

What we want, soul power
Got to have, soul power
What we want, soul power
Got to have, soul power

Hey, hey
I think we got to go to the bridge
Can we go to the bridge now
Can we go, one more time, the bridge, hit me

Love me tender, love me slow
If that don't get it, jump back for more
Love me tender, love me slow
If that don't get it, jump back for more
Get in the bracket, you know I like it

Well, I wanna get under your skin
And when I get there, I got to win
I need some coal, you need some soul
You had some soul, come on then and get some
And then you'll know where I'm comin' from
What we need, soul power, what we want, soul power
What we need, soul power, what we need, soul power
Don't fall on the ground, we got to get down
Down down down down...

Tell me what we need, what we need, soul power
What we want, soul power, what we need, soul power
What we want, soul power, what we need, soul power
What we want, soul power

Can you feel it, soul power
You got to feel it, soul power
Got to feel it, soul power, got to feel it, soul power
We gotta, gotta gotta gotta...
You gotta feel it, soul power...
Hey, don't fall on the ground
You've got to get down, down down down
Feel so good, brother
I want to go to the bridge once more again
Me too, will you take me on, brother, yeah
I need help, I can't do it alone
Me too, they tell me, if you don't work you can't eat
Hey, you're ready marty, brother
Yeah, can we do it to the bridge
Hey, hit me, all right
Love me tender, love me slow
If that don't get it, jump back for more
Say it again
If that don't get it, jump back for more...

What we want, soul power, say it again, soul power
What we need, soul power, I say love me tender, love me slow
If that don't get it, jump back for more
Huh, say it again, if that don't get it, jump back for more
Brother, if you fall on the ground
Remember you've got to get down, down down down...
Huh, say it again, say it
If that don't get it, jump back for more
Huh, come on, if that don't get it, jump back for more

That's what it's all about, soul power...
Is that what you call it

What we need, soul power, what we want, soul power
What we need, soul power, what we want, soul power
I think I'll talk to that young girl sittin' up there
I wanna tell her something, all right

Love me tender, love me slow
If that don't get it, jump back for more
What, what you're sayin'
If that don't get it, jump back for more
I don't think they heard you, what you're sayin'
If that don't get it, jump back for more
What, huh, tell her, huh, you heard him
If that don't get it, jump back for more
You, you little thing
If that don't get it, jump back for more
If that don't, whoa...

  15. Walter Michelmann

    Mein Blues Brother Peter Cnotka wurde später Personal-Direktor von Haniel International. Mir ein Rätsel bis ZDF-Heute, weil der genauso wenig englisch konnte wie ich. Als ich bei Hertie GmbH Frankfurt raus geflogen bin, hat der mich eingestellt und seine Personal-Ablage organisieren lassen.Diese Demütigung habe ich damals gar nicht so empfunden, weil ich froh war, nicht obdachlos geworden zu sein Einen besseren scheinheiligen Freund kann man nicht haben. Wenn Du am Limit um Dein Überleben kämpfst, dann erkennst Du Deine engsten Feinde nicht! ER ist tod , ich lebe! Erklärt das was? Sein Liebingss Spruch zum Abend-Essen? Walter? Tel Aviv! Der Gipfel seiner Weisheit! PS. Jetzt ist absolut Schluss mit diesem Scheiss. Mein Nachruf? An Peter Cnotka? Du wolltest mir Das Kapital von Karl Marx näher bringen. Hat mich überfordert, weil nix kapiert. Du bist Personaldirektor geworden. Ein Hass-Beruf! Ich würde lieber eine Pommes-Bude aufmachen, als mich zu versklaven lassen wie Du! Darüber haben wir nie reden können, weil Du mich als gleichwertigen Mensch gar nicht wahr genommen hasst! Peter! Ich habe das gerade geschrieben und fühle mich dadurch tatsächlich erleichtert!

  66. Boss Hog Zoomer

    Defined what African Americans are beyond our worldly familiars. Our music gave America soul. When this came out,I never seen a white person with a sense of rhythm or a white women with a nice ass. James Brown gave America not only rhythm but made white women have nice juicy asses. Before James Brown all white women had flat asses. Now some white folks can dance better than me and the white girls asses are gorgeous 🤪🤪🤪😜😜😜😆😆😆😆
