Paroles "For Once In My Life" - James Brown

Hey-hey-hey-hey
For once in my life
I have someone who needs me
Someone I’ve needed so long
For once, unafraid
I can go where life leads me
Somehow I know I would be strong

For once I can touch what my heart
Used to dream of
Long before I knew
Someone warm like you
Would make my
Dream come true

And maybe
For once in my life
I won't let sorrow hurt me
Not like it hurt me before

For once I have something
That won't desert me
I’m not alone anymore, it won't desert me
For once I can say
"This is mine, you can’t take it"
As long as I know I have love I can make it
For once in my life
I have someone who needs me, yeah!

For once in my life, someone needs me
Someone I've needed so long
For once, unafraid, I'm not scared
I can go where life leads me
'Cause I know
I've got to be strong

For once I can touch
What my heart used to dream of, hah!
Long before I knew
Someone warm like you
Would make my dream come true

For once in my life, I won't let sorrow hurt me
Not like it did before
For once I have something
I know won't desert me
I'm not lonely anymore

For once I can say
"This is mine, you can't take it"
As long as know
I have love, we can make it
For once in my life, I have someone, someone who needs me

It's your thing
You got to have a thing
Everybody need a thing
Use your thing
And do your thing
You got to, you got to
Have a thing
Use your thing
Use your thing
You need your thing
You got to have a thing
Every, every
Every, every!
Ya-la-la-la-la-eee, yeah!
Ya-la-la-la-la-eee!
You got to have a thing, ow!
You got to have a thing, ow!
Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah
Ai-ai-ai-ai-ai-ai-yeah!
Ai-ai-ai-ai-ai-ai-yeah!
Ai-ai-ai-ai-ai-ai-yeah!
Ai-ai-ai-ai-ai-ai-yeah!
You got to, you got to
You got to, you got to
Good God, you got to, you got to
You got to!
Ya-la-la-la-la-eee, yeah!
Ya-la-la-la-la-eee, yeah!
Yeah!
Yeah!
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
