"Get Up and Go" as written by and Zachary Walker/hanson Hanson....
She plays guitar with her fingertips
She'll play your heart with her tender lips
She'll work it out until she makes the tips
And it's alright, yeah it's alright
Holding her tight in late December
I look in the stars and I remember
She doesn't mind when you offend her
And it's alright, yeah it's alright

Just a girl like you, and maybe just a
Just a guy like me, maybe we
Could take a walk on the wild side
Take a look and see
Get up and go
Just a girl like you, and maybe just a
Just a guy like me, maybe we
Could take a walk on the wild side
Take a look and take a look and go
Get Up and Go

What could I give when you've got all you need
And she looks at me like all I want's a little free
Every time I look at you it makes me see
That it's alright, yeah it's alright
We'll get away be in love we can make it better
All I need's a little time for us to get together
Happiness is just a step away
When it's alright, yeah it's alright

Just a girl like you, and maybe just a
Just a guy like me, maybe we
Could take a walk on the wild side
Take a look and see
Get up and go
Just a girl like you, and maybe just a
Just a guy like me, maybe we
Could take a walk on the wild side
Take a look and take a look and go

Ooh oh, ooh oh, won't you go
Ooh oh, ooh oh, won't you go
Ooh oh, ooh oh, won't you go
Take a look and, take a look and go

Seems like love has always found a way
But there's only so many hours in the day
All that I know is that you're here with me
And it's alright, yeah it's alright
Won't you tell me that you need me so bad
'Cause you are everything I've never had
Every time I look at you it hurts so bad
And it's alright, yeah it's alright

Just a girl like you, and maybe just a
Just a guy like me, maybe we
Could take a walk on the wild side
Take a look and see
Get up and go
Just a girl like you, and maybe just a
Just a guy like me, maybe we
Could take a walk on the wild side
Take a look and take a look and go
Get up and go

    General CommentAs with many Hanson songs, I think this song can be interpreted in a spectrum of ways. Although not concurrent throughout the song, (mainly in the third verse) I feel that the first two verses can be looked at as talking to a prostitute. It was talked about on h.net, and if you think about it (in your sick, twisted, hanson fan way) it seems to fit. "She'll work it out until she makes the tips," "She doesn't mind when you offend her."

    I also think this song can be taken as a guy who wants the bad girl. She's a rebel, doesn't really do the relationship thing, and he's trying to persuade her to "take a walk on the wild side," and get into a relationship.

    General Commentamazing song! it's the happiest love song they've made. it's about taking a chance with someone and realizing it's okay coz everyone knows you know you can't fight love ;)

    General CommentThis is one of my favourite Hanson songs. 'We’ll get away be in love we can make it better
    All I need’s a little time for us to get together
    Happiness is just a step away' this part is just so good. When I listen to their songs they make me in good mood. They are..oh..they are undiscribeable..

    General CommentThis song 1.makes me dance, and 2.makes me think of a Romeo and Juliet kind of love. Like at first he's describing this totally awesome, Mary-Sueish kind of girl, and then the rest of the song, persuading her to be with him, like being with him is a 'wild' thing to do. That was totally the longest run-on sentence ever. Sorry.

    General CommentY'all, no matter what this song means to me...they've said it's about a hooker. That's what I get from it too, so I wasn't surprised to hear it. Just think of it being Pretty Woman in song version. That's my bit.

    General CommentI love this song. It's funny- so many people have different interpretations of it. Others claim to know what it's about...period. An anonymous girl on LJ the other day brought it up when leaving a comment somewhere, and said it was about Michelle Branch. lol I do remember the guys saying it was about a hooker, which made me laugh. lol But, that's always what I got from it too...since the first time I heard the song. I agree with you, Svimmelhet. It strikes me as Pretty Woman set to a song, too.
