Mother Popcorn, Pt. 1 Lyrics

Some like 'em fat and some like 'em tall
Some like 'em short, skinny legs and all
I like 'em bold, I like 'em proud
And when they walk, you know they draw a crowd

See, you gotta have a mother for me
Popcorn, a look here

There was a time when I was all alone
I had a secret, thought I was gone
Somebody done me, said, ‽Now I see
What you are doin', brother, to stay ahead of me”

And when I get burnt, ha, I use a salve
And when I want lovin'
A mother she got to have
See, you got to have a mother for me


Look here, ha, good God
Look here

Do the popcorn and do the horse
Show everybody where you at, you gotta be boss
The way you do your little thing, step in a small ring
And jump back, baby, James Brown's gonna do his thing, popcorn

Sometime, sometime I'm feelin' low
Sometime I'm feelin' low
I call another brother
Talkin' about Maceo

Maceo, blow your horn
A don't put no trash, ha
Play me some popcorn
Maceo, come on, popcorn
