I always thought the song lyrics is :
“ this is a man’s world, but it will be nothing without a woman HEART “ 😅
Now I wish that I never saw this video and knew my mistake, mine was better !

I was front row at a James Brown show a couple of months before he passed away. The man was in his 70s and doing splits for 2 hours straight. He turned directly to me and screamed "HEY!" right in my face. I can still feel the funk<3 RIP Godfather

Brown: This is a man's world, this is a man's world and
But it wouldn't be nothing, nothing, nothing
Without a woman or a girl

You see, man made the cars
To take us over the road
Man made the trains
To carry heavy loads
Man made electric lights
To take us out of the dark
And man made the boat for the water,
Like my bible says Noah made the ark

This is a man's world
But it wouldn't be nothing, nothing, nothing
Without a woman or a girl

Pavarotti: L'uomo rincorre il potere ma lui non sa
che il grande limiti ad essere come si parrá.
Nel palmo stringe un ‘idea
che non vive,
che nella sua fantasia… volle
se non si accorge che poi
nulla ha piú senso se
si vive solo per se.

Brown: Man thinks about a little bitty baby girl
And a baby boy
Man makes then happy
Because man makes them toys

And after man made other things he can
Man makes liras, pesos, dollars, rupees
To buy for every good woman and every man

This is a man's world,
Pavarotti: Nulla ha piú senso se
si vive solo per se.
Brown: But it wouldn't be nothing,
Without a woman or a girl.
Pavarotti: Solo per se.

Brown: He's lost in the wilderness,
He's lost in bitterness.
Pavarotti: Se non si accorge che poi
nulla ha piú senso se
si vive solo per se,
solo per se, per se.
Brown: This is a man's world, yeah.

The king of opera and the king of soul. This performance is gold. This performance is history. Never again shall we see the likes of James Brown, Luciano Pavarotti, Elvis or Micheal Jackson. Thanks for the memories, but most of all thanks to god for lending them to us for a while.

Two of the greatest. I first saw James Brown in the late 1960s in Baton Rouge La. I've never seen anything like it in my life. A marvel. I saw Mr. Pavarotti in NYC at the Metropolitan Opera in the 1980s and 90s a few times. A joy indeed.

This isn’t a clash between American soul and European opera, this is them working in harmony.
