James Brown on Train

Today I was sitting on the train and there was a lady with her sleeping child sitting across from me.

Their stop was coming up and instead of waking up the child like I see most mothers do:

Rub his arm and say “Honey, sweety, wake up.”

She got up and begin to sing:

Get up! With your bad-self! Get Up! With your bad-self! Get on the good foot!

All the while, the child is sleeping. And then out of no where he jumps up!

And start spinning wildly!! Kicking his legs out wide. And bouncing his arms from left to right!!

His mother was shocked!

Turned around fast.

All the people on the train were laughing out loud. Covering their mouths. We even Clapped.
