I Don't Want Nobody To Give Me Nothing (Open Up the Door, I'll Get It Myself), Pt.1

This song is by James Brown and appears on the compilation album 50th Anniversary Collection (2003).

I don't want nobody
To give me nothing
Open up the door
I'll get it myself
Do you hear me
Don't give me denegration
Give me true communication
Don't give me sorrow
I want equal opportunity
To live tomorrow
Give me schools
And give me better books
So I can read about myself
And gain my truly looks
Do you hear me now, now
Some of us try
As hard as we can
We don't want no sympathy
We just wanna be a man
Do you hear me
We got talents we can use
On our side of town
Let's get our heads together
And get it up from the ground
When some of us make money
People hear about our people
Gotta grab out a honey
Forget about honey
Do you now, let me hear, hey
Come on, I got to have it
Come on, I need it
I got to have it, come on
I got to have it, oh
Lordy, Lordy, Lordy
Lordy, Lordy, Lordy
Play with your bad self
Come on, baby
Come here now
Gotta get it
Got to get myself together
So many things I've got to do
So many things I've got to do
I don't no help from you
Tell everybody, body else
All of these things, baby
I'll do it myself
Come on, hey
I got to have it
I, said I, said I
Said I, said I, I
Do you hear me
I'm not gonna tell
You what to do
I'm not gonna raise a fuss
But before you make another move
Let's start by taking care of us
Do you hear me
Kids get that education
And don't you take no more
'Cause we gonna get
This thing together
You got to carry the bell
I don't want nobody
To give me nothing
Open up the door
Open up the door
Open up the door
Open up the door
Open up the door
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Can you dig the groove
Can you make the move...
