Let's change this...

-lyrics


verse 1:
    
Come here sister.....Papa's in the swing 
He ain't too hip...about that new breed babe 
He ain't no drag 

chorus: Papa's got a brand new bag 

verse 2:

Come here mama....and dig this crazy scene 
He's not too fancy....but his line is pretty clean 
He ain't no drag 

chorus: Papa's got a brand new bag 

interlude: 

He's doing the Jerk.... 
He's doing the Fly 
Don't play him cheap 'cause you know he ain't shy 
He's doing the Monkey, the Mashed Potatoes, Jump back Jack, See you 
later 
alligator

verse 3:

Come here sister 
Papa's in the swing 
He ain't too hip now 
but I can dig that new breed babe; 
He ain't no drag 

chorus: He's got a brand new bag 

verse 4:

Oh papa! He's doing the Jerk 
Papa...he's doing the Jerk 
He's doing the twist ... just like this, 
He's doing the Fly ev'ry day and ev'ry night 

chorus:

The thing's....like the Boomerang

interlude:

Hey....come on 
Hey! Hey.....come on 
Hey! Hey....he's put tight...out of sight... 
Come on. Hey! Hey! (fade out)
