Bessie

This song is by James Brown.

Everybody get on the floor
I wanna do it some more
We havin' a party
Come on now, hey

Bessie, Bessie shake while you're able
Shake it Bessie, I know you cap'ble
Bessie, Bessie shake while you're able
Shake it Bessie, I know you cap'ble

Bessie, Bessie shake what you got, ha
Shake it baby, you got a lot
Bessie, Bessie shake what you got, ha
Shake it baby, you got a lot

Bessie, Bessie, shake and clap your hands
Shake it Bessie, for the peanut man
Bessie, Bessie, shake and clap your hands (everybody)
Shake it Bessie, for the peanut man (Come on, sit down)

Shake it Bessie, shake it Bessie
(I want everybody)
(Now Bessie, you get on one side of the floor)
(And let your party get on the other side)
(And I want all of them skinny girls to get in the middle)
(Because the skinny girls gotta shake it twice as hard as you Bessie)
(You got something to shake, mama)
(Look at here - holy... I dig it)
(Baby, got to give it up)
(You've got to give it up)

Bessie - good God
Bessie, Bessie shake while you're able
We know that you're cap'ble
Bessie, Bessie, yo, take the floor
We want you to shake some more

Bessie, Bessie, Bessie
Come on and get down
Bessie, Bessie

Bessie, Bessie shake what you got, ha
Shake it baby, you got a lot
(I feel good - come on baby)
(Wait a minute - how'd... and get down with you?)
(Let's get back and get into my thing)

I ain't goin' bump with that big fat Bessie
Ain't goin' bump with that big fat Bessie
(...)
(...)
Bessie, Bessie shake what you got, ha
Shake it Bessie, you got a lot
(Hit it JBs)
Bessie, Bessie shake what you got, ha
(...)
(...)
(I need some help, I can't do it alone)
(I better roll my sleves up and get down with you Bessie)
(Look at here now - come on)
Bessie, Bessie shake what you got, ha
Shake it baby, you got a lot
Bessie, Bessie shake, show your bone
Shake it Bessie
Bessie, Bessie shake
