James Brown - Women Are Something Else Lyrics




I guess it is confession time, now fellas look, we've been jivin'
I'm a Taurus and Bull, I was born May the 3rd, and I'm - I'm real stubborn too
But look here: I love my mate
I got to have my woman, so I know that I gotta treat her right
Because she's somebody too
If she want, I would want her
'Cause I cherish my woman
Now look here: let's give everybody what they should have, because they're human
Start by singing this way

She was born with the same pain
As you and I
Just as helpless, just as weak
She's a child, but proud to be alive
As any man, you or I
With life in her body, a soul she must find
Her will to survive, isn't as strong as yours or mine
The love that is given to this little girl
Is a love, that is needed and shared in the world

Women are something else
From a baby to a beautiful girl, yeah
Together, we've got to make it
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah
It's no longer a man's, a man's world

Women are something else
From a baby to a beautiful little girl
Together, we've got to make it, hon'
It's no longer, no longer
And I admit it - a man's world
Hah!

The day will come, when a girl becomes a woman
And faces the world herself
But she'll make it, yes I know she will
'Cause a woman, a woman is something else

Women are something else (yes they are)
From a baby to a beautiful girl, smack them on a cheek
But together, we've got to make it
'Cause it's no longer... goodbye, good riddance
That one and only, lonely, a man's world

Ha hah, mmm, yeah yeah
Aah, sweet as sugar, yeah, strawberry pie
Apple and... ow!

Love in her heart, and a soul she will find
Strength to always survive
The love she can give (love that is given)
This beautiful girl
Is a love, that is yours
Yours, yours, and mine

Women are something else
I'll say it again:
(From a baby) From a baby to a beautiful girl
Together, hah, gonna make it (we've got to make it)
Lord have mercy
It's no longer, and I'm so glad
A man's world

(It's no longer just a man's world)
I'm so lonely, yeah
And I'm...
(It's no longer just a man's world)
...gimme my ease
(It's no longer just a man's world)
And I'm, yeah
(It's no longer just a man's world)

(Women are something else)
Aah, say it, yeah
(Women are something else)
I love them!
(Women are something else)
They're hard
(Women are something else)
Sometimes, you know, they can be... a bitch!
But they're sweet

Women are something else
(From a baby) From a baby to a beautiful girl
Together, got to make it (we've got to make it)
It's no longer, I can say it
A man's world

(Women are something else)
Sometimes, sometimes, I'd say
(From a baby) I'm a bitch too, ha ha!
Women are something else
(Together, we've got to make it)
Lookit here, now now now
Ridin' in my, ridin' in my little
(Women are something else)
Funny little car, I worked so hard for
So that we can enjoy
(From a baby) The better little things

Gimme my
(Together...)
I think I'd give you my threads [?], and my bed
(...we've got to make it)
And my funny little doodlebug car
Get me a dune bug, or some kind of funny old truck
(Women...)
And maybe I'd get lucky to get me a van, I don't know
(...are something else)
There's you and I
(From a baby...)
Someway, in the backwood, over at the backwater
(Together, we've got to make it)
Over at the backwater
My my my, take me to the backwater, yeah!
(Women are something else)
Take me to the backwater...
