James Brown is Dead Lyrics

by Shwayze

The Man (Yo, yo, yo)on the radio said:
(Yo, yo, yo)James Brown is dead.
(Yo, yo, yo)Godfather of soul, lays in his bed,(Yo, yo, yo) yeh (Have you heard what the kids are listening to?)

Yo, uh,
Woke up, (Got high)
Sho'nuff (Sky high)
Got in the ride turned the radio up,
Then they said James Brown was dead.
Is it true? Or am i just doped up.
Know what? I'm calling my folks up,
They said he died 'cause Hip hop sucks.
Aint got no soul like a old pair of chucks,
It's about time that somebody stepped up

[Chorus]
And the man (Yo, yo, yo)on the radio said(I regret to report)
(Yo, yo, yo)James Brown is Dead(Just Press Record)
The (Yo, yo, yo)Godfather of soul, lays in his bed,(Yo, yo, yo) yeh.
(Have you heard what the kids are listening to?)

Hit the studio (Check 1, 2)
Sho'nuff, Yo Cisco turn my headphones up
I got a message for the kids of America
Play it loud in your Hi-Fi stereo.
Wi-Fi, download the ringtone,
California Love is your theme song.
Drop the guitar, le'mme hear the beat y'all,
Do like Dr. Brown and move your feet y'all

[Chorus]
And the man (Yo, yo, yo)on the radio said(I regret to report)
(Yo, yo, yo)James Brown is Dead(Just Press Record)
The (Yo, yo, yo)Godfather of soul, lays in his bed,(Yo, yo, yo) yeh.
(Have you heard what the kids are listening to?)

I just got back from a little vacation.
Grew some wings and flew to Vegas.
Met a girl, took her 'round the world,
Form New York, New York to Ceasar's
Now i'm sitting in L.A. alone.
I fell asleep with my blue jeans on.
I woke up had three missed calls.
They said: James Brown is gone.
(James Brown is Dead)

(I regret to report,
Have you heard what the kids are listening to?
I regret to report James Brown is Dead.)

(I regret to report James Brown is dead.
Have you heard what the kids are listening to?)

[Chorus]
And the man (Yo, yo, yo)on the radio said(I regret to report)
(Yo, yo, yo)James Brown is Dead(Just Press Record)
The (Yo, yo, yo)Godfather of soul, lays in his bed,(Yo, yo, yo) yeh.
(Have you heard what the kids are listening to?)

And the man (Yo, yo, yo)on the radio said(I regret to report)
(Yo, yo, yo)James Brown is Dead(Just Press Record)
The (Yo, yo, yo)Godfather of soul, lays in his bed,(Yo, yo, yo) yeh.
