Hi,
Anyone can help me finding the lyrics of "That Dood it" by James Brown. I think it's from the "please please please" album of James Brown.
Thanks in advance
Alex

Here's a start. I transcribed this from several samples:


THAT DOOD IT (excerpt)
Rosemary McCoy, Rudy Toombs
As sung by James Brown

...Ooh!
My money—
My honey—
And me.

I been diggin' all those stories about the West the cats have told.
Me an' my baby cut out there, dig us up a mess o' gold.
The minute we find a buried treasure, I looked up an' see
A great big ol' eight-foot giant lookin' dead on me.

An' that dood it, you know, an' that dood it.
I didn't have no more eyes for diggin' up no more gold.
No, no, no, no, no, no!

I grabbed what I had in one hand and my baby by the other.
A giant grabbed my coattail and said, "Don't you go another fu'ther...."

THAT DOOD IT
Rosemary McCoy, Rudy Toombs
As sung by James Brown on "The Federal Years: 1956-1960" (2006)

Now here's a story about—
A great big ol' giant—
Ooh!—
My money—
My honey—
An' me.

1. I been diggin' all those stories about the West the cats have told.
Me an' my baby cut out there, dig us up a mess o' gold.
The minute we find a buried treasure, I looked up an' see
A great big ol' eight-foot giant lookin' dead on me.

CHORUS: An' that dood it, you know, an' that dood it.
I didn't have no more eyes for diggin' up no more gold.
No, no, no, no, no, no!

2. I grabbed what I had in one hand an' my baby by the other.
A giant grabbed my coattail an' said, "Don't you go another fu'ther."
I ripped off my coat when I was shakin' the scene,
But what really got my goat was when I heard my baby scream.

CHORUS: An' that dood it, ooh-wee! An' that dood it.
'Cause I ain't goin' nowhere, an' leave my baby there.
No, no, no, no, no, no!

3. I put on my brakes an' stopped dead in my tracks.
As much as I hated the idea, I went crawlin' on back.
I said, "Look-a here, Mister Giant," as I raised slowly on one knee.
"I'll do anything you say. Hand my baby to me."

CHORUS: An' that dood it, mm-hmm, an' that dood it.
He said, "You bust that loose, an' I'll set your baby free."
No, no, no, no, no, no!

4. I said, "I'll make you a proposition. It's up to you to choose.
It's either your money or your honey. One of the two you'll have to lose."
I said, "Mister Giant, I want to thank you for takin' a load off my mind,
But when it come to choosin' between my money—an' my honey—
I take my money—what I'm sayin'?—I mean my honey ever' time."

CHORUS: An' that dood it, you know, an' that dood it.
Now the giant got the money an' I got my honey, an' ev'rybody's feelin' fine.
No, no, no, no, no, no!
