Description


Bill Cosby and Sidney Poitier team up together again in this funny, African-American classic movie.

Bill Cosby is Shaka Lodge treasurer, Billy Foster, and his best friend is Clyde Williams, who is played by Sidney Poitier. Their lodge, the Sons and Daughters of Shaka, needs a new meeting place, and they decide to help it by betting on a big upcoming fight.

Their scheming plan is to put the odds of winning in their favor by hypnotizing the weakling longshot, Bootney Farnsworth ( Jimmie "J.J." Walker), so that he will win and they will make a lot of money.

As they try to fool the mob and keep themselves from getting hurt, the comedy is nonstop. Will their plan work?

Directed by Sidney Poitier, "Let's Do It Again", has a non-stop cast of famous African-American performers including:Calvin Lockhart, John Amos, Denise Nicholas, Harry Belafonte and Ossie Davis.

With a winning Curtis Mayfield music score, "Let's Do It Again" is a classic not to be missed!

The "Let's Do It Again" Song Lyrics

Here are the lyrics for the title song "Let's Do It Again" by The Staple Singers. "Let's Do It Again" was a number one hit when it was released in 1975.

Do it again, do it (Do it)
Let's do it again (Do it)
Mmm (Do it again, do it again)
Gonna do it again (Do it)
Do it, do it
Let's do it again (Do it)
Do it again

Sometimes the rain
Groovin' when I hear the sound
Like you and me, baby
Gettin' down with the sounds around
Oh, the smell of the mornin' flower
As we pass away the hour

I wanna do it again, do it again
Do it (Do it)

Let's do it in the mornin'
Sweet breeze in the summer time
Feeling your sweet face
All laid up next to mine
Sweet love in the midnight
Good sleep, come mornin' light
No worries 'bout nothin'
Just gettin' good, just gettin' good
Just gettin' good love

Do it, do it again
Do it again (Do it)
Do it

Now I like you, lady
So fine with your pretty hair
If you don't mind my compliments
Just diggin' on the clothes you wear
I'm just a man now don't you fear
I can love you now I brought you here

I wanna do it again
(Do it) (Do it, do it) I wanna do it again
Ooh, oh, ho, hey, do it again
Do it
(Woo, hoo, hoo, hoo)
Do it

Like a hammer on a clock
Love began to rock
Give the sister love and pride
Feel good and satisfied
I'm not a girl that could linger
But I feel like a Butterfinger

I wanna do it again, do it again
Do it, do it

Let's do it in the mornin'
Sweet breeze in the summer time
Feeling your sweet face
All laid up next to mine

Sweet love in the midnight
Good sleep, come mornin' light
No worries 'bout nothin'
Just gettin' good, just gettin' good
Just gettin' good love

Oh, hey, do it again, do it again
Do it again, do it again
Do it (Woo, hoo, hoo)
Do it, do it
Do it, do it, do it again
Do it again (Woo, hoo, hoo), do it again
Do it again, do it again, do it again (Woo, hoo, hoo)

Mmm...
(Woo, hoo, hoo)
Oh, hey
(Woo, hoo, hoo)

Do it again, do it again
