He ain't no drag Papa's got a brand new bag. Come here, mama And dig this crazy scene He's not too fancy But his line is pretty clean. Released in the summer of 1965, Papa’s Got a Brand New Bag was the first Top 10 crossover hit for James Brown. In the song, Papa’s new bag –his new motivation or interest–involved him getting his groove back on the dance floor. The title could also double as a reference to the new direction Brown’s music was taking, moving away from the slow doo-wop ballads he created with the Famous Flames in favor of his signature uptempo funky soul jams he performed at his live shows with his backing band, The James Brown Orchestra.
Papa's Got a Brand New Bag" is a song written and recorded by James Brown.
