Brown, James - Talkin' Loud And Sayin' Nothing Lyrics




Like a dull knife
Just ain't cutting
Just talking loud
Then saying nothing

Just saying nothing
Just saying nothing

You can't tell me
How to run my life down
You can't tell me
How to keep my business sound

You can't tell me
What I'm doing wrong
When you keep driving and
Singing that same old money song

You can't tell me
Which way to go
Cause three times seven
And then some more
You can't tell me, hey

You're like a dull knife
Just ain't cutting
You're just talking loud
And saying nothing

Just saying nothing
Just saying nothing

Don't tell me
How to do my thing
When you can't, can't
Can't do your own

Don't tell me how to be a boy
When, when you know I'm grown

Can't use me like a woman
Woman throws away her dress
And you can't tell me, hey
How to use my mess

You're like a dull knife
Jack, you just ain't cutting
You're just talking loud
Then saying nothing

Just saying nothing
And saying nothing

Shape up your bag
Don't worry bout mine
My thing together
And a doing fine

Good luck to you
Just allow you're wrong
Then keep on singing that
Same old money song

Then keep on singing that
Same old money song
Just keep on singing that
Same old money song

Just keep on singing that
Same old money song
Just keep on singing that
Same old money, oww

I got to, I want yo
I musta, I got to
Ashes ashes and a dust to dust
I musta, jump on back
I'm doing a, my hands

I say I will, the point
Is too dark to fill
You say I can't
You're phony, you're phony
I said, I said, you're phony...

    The way America is now. Back in the day if you didn't come real. You would learn real quick. That's how we survived. Young generation now can't live past 25 or either their in prison. White people didn't interfere in raising children. Today. See the difference

  78. smoothjazzaxe

    People often talk about the funk, the soul, the musicianship, the showmanship of James Brown. But there's also this explosive, raw spontaneity. You don't know what's coming next. That spontaneity, unpredictability was a key ingredient whether one is talking about a live performance or a studio recording. He's going to surprise you. He's going to rock your world.

  90. sabrina brown

    Yeah.... that is what they do but everyone knows actions should be speaking louder than any of those damn words coming out of folks mouth. U need to get up and kick that chair from under folks behind and let their soft behinds hit that hard floor like their damn heads!!!

  91. UNC

    The song is about a guy who told JB that he needed to participate in some kinda march. The guy tried to say James wasn’t “Down” enough because James passed on his offer. The guy is referred to as “Mr loud and wrong” and he picked the wrong guy to mess with. James had already made great contributions to the cause of black peoples and didn’t need help from this dude. So he made a record about it. Ouch. So at the end of the song James tells the recording engineer to keep the tape running so he could deal directly with Mr LAR. You hear Bobby Byrd say” Mr engineer keep it running”. This was obviously pre planned. Then James gives him a tongue lashing till the record fades out. Lesson? Don’t come at the king with the weak nonsense floating around in your head.!!!!!

  92. UNC

    Jabo on that stiff sticky hi hat keeps incredible time throughout the song (Ti-Ti- Tick Tick Tick. Ticky- Ticky-Tick- Tick) say that 3 times fast
