Lyrics MAMA COME HERE QUICK
AND BRING THAT LICKING STICK,
MAMA COME HERE QUICK
AND BRING THAT LICKING STICK.
MAMA COME HERE QUICK
AND BRING ME THAT LICKING STICK,
MAMA COME HERE QUICK
AND BRING ME THAT LICKING STICK,
MAMA COME HERE QUICK
AND BRING ME THAT LICKING STICK.

PEOPLE STANDING,
STANDING IN A TRANCE,
SISTER'S OUT IN THE BACKYARD,
DOING A OUTTA SIGHT DANCE,
COME TELLING ME THE OTHER DAY
SHE DIDN'T WANT TO BE A DRAG,
I DON'T KNOW WHAT SHE'S DOING,
I THINK SHE'S GOT A BRAND NEW BAG.

MAMA COME HERE QUICK
AND BRING THAT LICKING STICK,
MAMA COME HERE QUICK
AND BRING THAT LICKING STICK.
MAMA COME HERE QUICK
AND BRING ME THAT LICKING STICK,
MAMA COME HERE QUICK
AND BRING ME THAT LICKING STICK,
MAMA COME HERE QUICK
AND BRING ME THAT LICKING STICK.

JUNIOR DON'T KILL ME
WITH HIS LAZY STROKE,
WON'T TAKE HIS FEET RIGHT OFF THE GROUND.
DOING THE MASHED POTATOES
UNTIL HE BEGINS TO SLIDE,
CALLS HIS SELF DOING THE JAMES BROWN.
SISTER SAYS THE DANCE SHE'S DOING
IS THE LATEST THING,
PEOPLE NOW BEGIN TO TALK,
SHE JUMPED BACK IN THAT SOULFUL STRIDE,
BABY,
SHE'S NOW DOING THE CAMEL WALK.

MAMA COME HERE QUICK
AND BRING THAT LICKING STICK,
MAMA COME HERE QUICK
AND BRING THAT LICKING STICK.
MAMA COME HERE QUICK
AND BRING ME THAT LICKING STICK,
MAMA COME HERE QUICK
AND BRING ME THAT LICKING STICK,
MAMA COME HERE QUICK
AND BRING ME THAT LICKING STICK.

Lyrics YOU GOT YOUR HIGH SNEAKERS ON
AND SLIPPIN' MULE,
YOU GOT YOUR HIGH SNEAKERS ON
AND SLIPPIN' MULE,

YOU KNOW YOU'RE OUT OF SIGHT!

YOU GOT A SHAPELESS FIGURE,
MAMA, THAT KEEPS ME UPRIGHT.
YOU GOT A SHAPELESS FIGURE,
MAMA, THAT KEEPS ME UPRIGHT.

THE WAY YOU KISS ME TOO.
THE WAY YOU DO THE THING YOU DO,
THE WAY YOU KISS ME TOO.

YOU'VE GOT A SWEET DISPOSITION, MAMA,
'CAUSE YOU'RE ALWAYS RIGHT.
YOU'VE GOT A SWEET DISPOSITION, MAMA,

Lyrics THERE WAS A DAY,
THERE WAS A TIME,
THERE WAS A DAY
WHEN I USED TO DANCE.
THERE WAS A TIME
WHEN I USED TO PRANCE,
BUT DIG ME NOW, BABY.
DON'T WORRY ABOUT LATER,
DIG THE DANCE
I USED TO DO
THEY CALLED THE MASHED POTATO.
THERE WAS A DANCE
NOW DIG THIS,
THERE WAS A DANCE
THEY CALLED THE JERK.
EVERYBODY RELAX
AND WATCH ME WORK
IN MY HOMETOWN
WHERE I USED TO STAY.
THE NAME OF THE PLACE
IS AUGUSTA, G.A.
DOWN THERE
WE HAD A GOOD TIME,
WE DON'T TALK,
WE ALL GET TOGETHER,
ANY TYPE OF WEATHER,
AND WE DO THE CAMEL WALK.
LOOK-A-HERE
DIG THIS:
NOW THERE WAS A DANCE
THAT I USED TO DO,
THE NAME OF THE DANCE
THEY CALLED THE BOOGALOO.
I MAY NOT DO THE DANCE
AS WELL AS YOU,
BUT BABY,
YOU CAN BET
YOUR BOTTOM DOLLAR
YOU'LL NEVER HEAR ME HOLLER,
I'LL DO THE BEST
THAT I CAN DO.
LOOK-A-HERE
FEELING GOOD.
THERE WAS A TIME,
SOMETIMES I DANCED,
THERE WAS A TIME,
SOMETIMES I DANCED,
SOMETIMES I CLOWNED.
BUT YOU CAN BET
YOU HAVEN'T SEEN
NOTHING YET,
UNTIL YOU SEE ME
DO THE JAMES BROWN.

Lyrics Chorus:
THINK,
THINK ABOUT THE GOOD THINGS,
THINK,
THINK ABOUT THE BAD THINGS.
THINK,
THINK ABOUT THE RIGHT THINGS,
THINK,
THINK ABOUT THE WRONG THINGS
AND LATER
BEFORE YOU LEAVE ME
YOU'LL REALIZE
I'M THE ONE WHO LOVES YOU.

verse 1:
THINK ABOUT
THE SACRIFICES
THAT I MADE FOR YOU.
THINK ABOUT
THE TIME
THAT I SPENT WITH YOU
THINK OF ALL THE GOOD THINGS
THAT I DID FOR YOU
THINK ABOUT THE BAD THINGS,
I TRIED NOT TO DO.
COME ON,
SUGAR,
AND...

Chorus

verse 2:
HOW MUCH
OF ALL YOUR HAPPINESS
CAN I REALLY CLAIM?
HOW MANY TEARS
HAVE YOU SHED
FOR WHICH
I WAS TO BLAME?
THOUGH I CAN'T REMEMBER
JUST WHAT WAS MY FAULT
I TRIED SO HARD
TO PLEASE YOU,
AT LEAST
THAT'S WHAT I THOUGHT.
COME ON,
SUGAR, AND...

Chorus
