Git With It

from Purplefly by Purplefly



Composed December 1992


Woke up in the mood, ready for this groove, hey
Tried to shake my sleepiness so i'd be ready to make my move
On the right track, ain't no turnin back, ain't it good to hear a
funky song...
The melody's here to soothe you, so let yo' self be soothed

Hopped right out of bed, this melody in my head, hey
Tryin' to remember what my baby said
Now its alright, no one's uptight, it's about time we got it on...
The music's here to guide you, so let yo' self be led

Time to hit the avenue, shakin' off my blues, hey
Found myself an aqua suit and some funky shoes
Now its real cool, no one act a fool, now we're ready to git it on...
The rhythm's here to move ya, so now its up to you

Ya gotta rise and shine now, it's your turn to steer, hey
Gotta get yo' butt in second gear cause the time to act is near
On the right track, ain't no turnin' back, it's about time we got it
Just find the drive within' you, baby, and you'll have nothin' to fear

As I sing this funky song, nothin' can go wrong, hey
Just follow my direction as I string you along
Now it's alright, no one's uptight, now we're ready to get it on...
Let's funk this joint up - you've waited far too long!
