Can't pass the people, can't pass the, hit me

Ooh, get on down like
Uh, I wanna get on the good foot
Ho, good foot, I got to get on the good foot, ah

Going down to the crib, let all hang out
Where soulful people knows, what it's about, ah
Going down to the crib and let it all hang out, ah

Where soulful people knows, what it's about, ah
Where people do the sign and take your hands, ah
And dancin' to the music James Brown Band

They're dancing on the good foot
I got to get on the good foot
Got to do it on the good foot
Do it with the good foot

Said the long hair hippies and the afro blacks
They all get together across the tracks
And they party

Ho, on the good foot
You know they dance on the good foot
Dance on the good foot

Ain't nothing goin' on now but the rent, ah
A whole lotta bills and my money's spent
And that's on my bad foot, whoa, uh

You know my face gettin' short and I got the blues
I got a funky job and I paid my dues on the good foot

Ho, on the good foot
I got to get on the good foot
Hey, on the good foot
Get on the good foot, come over

Hit it there, you got to, get it, get it
Sharper now, uh
Come on, get it, ah, huh

On the good foot
On the good foot
Ho, on the good foot
Get on the good foot

On the good foot
On the good foot
Ho, get on the good foot
On the good foot

Get it there, get it there
Ho, now bass, play on it now

Come on, get it, ah, get it
Get on the good foot
Ooh, I got to get on the good foot
Ooh, get on the good foot, ho

Take care of business, sister, I'm your fella
