James Brown

"Oh Baby, Don’t You Weep (Live 1963)"

Sometimes, the going
Gets a little bit tough now

(Oh, baby, don't you weep)
When the times get hard
And the friends get few now
(Oh, baby, don't you weep)
No one to turn to and
Nothing to do now
(Oh, baby, don't you weep)
You're screaming your heart out
(Oh, baby, don't you weep)
'Til your back is soaking wet now
(Oh, baby, don't you weep)
You're still looking for mercy
(Oh, baby, don't you weep)
And still, you can't forget now
(Oh, baby, don't you weep)

Screaming your heart out
Your back gets soaking wet
You know that you used to love him
And still, you can't forget

You know it, sometimes it's hard
Nowhere to go
No one to love
Tried everything you know

Haaa, baby
(Oh, baby, don't you weep)
And, ahhh, baby
(Oh, baby, don't you weep)
I want you to play
I want you to play a little song

(Do-doop-doopty-doop)
You know, a friend of mine
Told me one time
(Do-doop-doopty-doop)
I think it was back in 1959
(Do-doop-doopty-doop)
He said, "darling, you send me"
(Do-doop-doopty-doop)
He said, "if you call me
I'll come running back to you"
(Do-doop-doopty-doop)

And another friend of mine told me
He said, "if you need me, call me"
(Do-doop-doopty-doop)
You see, I got a lot of
Friends in my business
And another friend of mine
He told me
(Do-doop-doopty-doop)
"You better stop dogging
Me around, now"
(Do-doop-doopty-doop)

And a recent friend
Of mine, he came up
(Do-doop-doopty-doop)
And you know what he said
(Do-doop-doopty-doop)
"It's too late"
(Do-doop-doopty-doop)
Another friend of mine in a group
I'm talking bout Bobby boy, now
(Do-doop-doopty-doop)
He said a young man
Sings his heart out
(Do-doop-doopty-doop)
He walked up, he said, "James
I had so much trials and tribulations"
(Do-doop-doopty-doop)
But I found out now

(Do-doop-doopty-doop)
And you see, another friend
Of mine, he told me
He called me Bishop
(Do-doop-doopty-doop)
He said, "James
You was born to lose"
(Do-doop-doopty-doop)
I wouldn't take that for an answer
I went on down the street
(Do-doop-doopty-doop)

I said to myself
I said, "James Brown"
(Do-doop-doopty-doop)
"Please, please, please, please"
(Do-doop-doopty-doop)
"Come along, someone now"

Screaming your heart out
Your back gets soaking wet
You know that you used to love him
And still, you can't forget

You know it, sometimes it's hard
Nowhere to go
No one to love
Tried everything you know

And Ah, baby
(Do-doop-doopty-doop)
I'm gonna call a friend
Of mine in a band now
(Do-doop-doopty-doop)
I want him to come up
And testify now
(Do-doop-doopty-doop)
I want you to blow
(Do-doop-doopty-doop)
I want you to blow for the people
Who need someone to love now
(Do-doop-doopty-doop)
I want you to blow for the people
Who don't have no one to love
(Do-doop-doopty-doop)
I want you to blow for somebody
That I lost long time ago
(Do-doop-doopty-doop)
I want him to blow better than
On anybody's record now
(Do-doop-doopty-doop)
I want you to blow for yourself one time
(Do-doop-doopty-doop)

Ah, baby
(Oh, baby, don't you weep)
Ah, baby
(Oh, baby, don't you weep)
I think I'm gonna scream
A little louder and maybe
You'll come on home now

Ow, oh, baby
Please, please, please
Please, please, please
(Oh, please don't go)
