James Brown Lyrics

by Cage The Elephant

Ran around the corner, fell asleep in the sun
You had to move into the shade before you fire the gun
We got a hunger for destruction, needed someone to bleed
You sealed the deal before the dawn, you let your actions proceed

Some sunny day they're gonna come for you
Some sunny day they're gonna come for you
Sooner or later said you know that it's true
Some sunny day they're gonna come for you

You think you're so sly, you tried to roll by, you played the safe side
You said will somebody take me down town
Another James Brown, you made the same sound
You said will somebody write this down, down

Fightin' back revenge you've got you're face to the ground
You make excuses for the madness you've been hangin' around
You built a house up in the trees so you could see everyone
You set the clock and had a run, you set the clock and had a run

Some sunny day they're gonna come for you
Some sunny day they're gonna come for you
Sooner or later said you know that it's true
Some sunny day they're gonna come for you

You think you're so sly, you tried to roll by, you played the safe side
You said will somebody take me down town
Another James Brown, you made the same sound
You said will somebody write this down, down

Some sunny day they're gonna come for you
Some sunny day they're gonna come for you
Sooner or later said you know that it's true
Some sunny day they're gonna come for you

You think you're so sly, you tried to roll by, you played the safe side
You said will somebody take me down town
Another James Brown, you made the same sound
You said will somebody write this down, down
