Come here sister, Papa’s in the swing
He ain’t too hip, about that new breed babe
He ain’t no drag
Papa’s got a brand new bag

本來歌曲長達7分鐘,但經過一番修改後。刪減了原本歌曲起首的一大部份,更加快了歌曲的節奏。另外,有指James Brown是「1 Take」過完成歌曲錄製,沒有充分的準備,一邊錄製一邊看著樂譜及歌詞。至於在歌名方面,Papa’s Got A Brand New Bag當中的「Bag」在當時是俚語,是指生活模式或風格,所以「New Bag」是指一種全新的生活模式或風格。

歌詞方面

填詞作曲到製作都由James Brown一人打理

Come here sister, Papa’s in the swing
He ain’t too hip, about that new breed babe
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
He ain’t no drag
Papa’s got a brand new bag

It’s the Jerk
He’s doing the Fly
Don’t play him cheap ’cause you know he ain’t shy
He’s doing the Monkey, the Mashed Potatoes
Jump back Jack, See you later alligator

Come here sister
Papa’s in the swing
He ain’t too hip now
But I can dig that new breed babe
He ain’t no drag
He’s got a brand new bag

Oh papa, He’s doing the Jerk
Papa, he’s doing the Jerk
He’s doing the twist, just like this
He’s doing the Fly every day and every night
The thing’s, like the Boomerang
Hey, come on
Hey hey, come on
Hey hey, said you uptight, out of sight
Come on, see what you know
Come on, see what you know
