I Don’t Want Nobody To Give Me Nothing…

…Open up the door, I’ll get it myself.  Class warfare?  Indeed… But not in the way it has been portrayed by the masters of spin. It’s about equity, equality, opportunities and a level playing field.

I don’t want nobody to give me nothing.

Open up the door…I’ll get it myself.

     ~ James Brown

James Brown’s 1969 hit,  I Don’t Want Nobody To Give Me Nothing

Lyrics (see Lyricstime.com):

I don’t want nobody to give me nothing
Open up the door, I’ll get it myself…

Do you hear me
I don’t want nobody to give me nothing
Open up the door, I’ll get it myself
I don’t give me no animation, give me true communication
I don’t give me sorrow, I give me equal opportunity
To live tomorrow
Give me schools and give me phantom books
So I can read about myself and gain my truly looks
I don’t want nobody to give me nothing
Open up the door, I’ll get it myself
Do you hear me, na-na
I don’t want nobody to give me nothing
Open up the door, I’ll get it myself

So let’s try as hard as we can
We don’t want no sympathy, we just want to be a man
I don’t want nobody to give me nothing
Open up the door, I’ll get it myself
Do you hear me…

We’ve got travellers, we’ve got news from outside of town
Let’s get out, head together and let’s get it up
Form the ground, when some of us make money
We must think about our people
Got to pray about it honcy, forget about it honcy
Do you know, look at here, 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

Lordy… play with your bad stuff
Come on, baby, come here come here
Got to get myself, together
So many things I got to do, so many things I got to see
I don’t need no help from you
Tell everybody, mighty hell, all of these things
Baby, got to do it myself, come on, I gotta have it…

I said, I don’t want nobody to give me nothing
Open up the door, I’ll get it myself…
With you I’m swept and blessed
Would I ever find and block up every bird
I don’t want nobody to give me nothing…
I’m not gonna tell you what to do
I’m not gonna raise a fuss
But before you make another rule
Let’s start by taking care of us
I don’t want nobody to give nothing
Open up the door, I’ll get it myself…

Can’t get that education and don’t you take no bar
‘Cause we’re gonna get this thing together
And you’ve got to get them all
I don’t want nobody to give me nothing
Open up the door, I’ll get it myself…
Can you dig the groove, can you make the move
Can you dig the same, can you make me play
Can you take the groove,can you dig it
Tell me can you dig it, tell me can you, come on now
I got to have it…
I’m not gonna be a cupid, don’t be so stupid
Come on, wait, got no time to hate
We need all the time we got, try and communicate

Come on, Lordy… I got to get myself together
When they keep on slapping your back
How can I get myself together?…
I don’t want nobody to give me nothing
Open up the door, I’ll get it myself…
(repeat all til fade)
