"Let's Get It Started" as written by and George Jr/adams Pajon....
Let's get it started, in here

And the base keep runnin' runnin', and runnin' runnin', and runnin' runnin', and runnin' runnin', and
Runnin' runnin', and runnin' runnin', and runnin' runnin', and runnin' runnin', and

In this context, there's no disrespect, so
When I bust my rhyme, you break your necks
We got five minutes for us to disconnect
From all intellect collect the rhythm effect
Obstacles are inefficient, follow your intuition
Free your inner soul and break away from tradition
Coz when we beat out, girl it's pullin' without
You wouldn't believe how we wow shit out
Burn it till it's burned out
Turn it till it's turned out
Act up from north, west, east, south

Everybody, everybody, let's get into it
Get stupid
Get it started, get it started, get it started
Let's get it started (ha), let's get it started in here
Let's get it started (ha), let's get it started in here
Let's get it started (ha), let's get it started in here
Let's get it started (ha), let's get it started in here
Yeah

Lose control, of body and soul
Don't move too fast, people, just take it slow
Don't get ahead, just jump into it
Y'all hear about it, the Peas'll do it
Get stutted, get stupid
You'll want me body people will walk you through it
Step by step, like you're into new kid
Inch by inch with the new solution
Transmit hits, with no delusion
The feeling's irresistible and that's how we movin'

Everybody, everybody, let's get into it
Get stupid
Get it started, get it started, get it started
Let's get it started (ha), let's get it started in here
Let's get it started (ha), let's get it started in here
Let's get it started (ha), let's get it started in here
Let's get it started (ha), let's get it started in here
Yeah

Runnin' runnin', and runnin' runnin', and runnin' runnin', and runnin runnin' and

C'mon y'all, lets get woohoo!
Lets get woohoo! (in here)
Lets get woohoo!
Lets get woohoo! (in here)
Lets get woohoo!
Lets get woohoo! (in here) ow, ow, ow!
Ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya

Let's get ill, that's the deal
At the gate, we'll bring the bud top drill (just)
Lose your mind this is the time
Y'all test this drill, just and bang your spine (just)
Bob your head like me APL de, up inside your club or in your Bentley
Get messy, loud and sick.
Y'all mount past slow mo in another head trip (so)
Come then now do not correct it, let's get ignant let's get hectic

Everybody, everybody, let's get into it
Get stupid
Get it started, get it started, get it started
Let's get it started (ha), let's get it started in here
Let's get it started (ha), let's get it started in here
Let's get it started (ha), let's get it started in here
Let's get it started (ha), let's get it started in here
Yeah

Lets get woohoo!
Lets get woohoo! (in here)
Lets get woohoo!
Lets get woohoo! (in here)
Lets get woohoo!
Lets get woohoo! (in here) ow, ow, ow!
Ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya

Runnin' runnin', and runnin' runnin', and runnin' runnin', and runnin' runnin', and runnin' runnin'

    General CommentQP: I also hate this group now, which is a pity, because I really liked them before they sold out completely by releasing the musical abortion that is Elephunk. It's quite sad, because Bridging The Gaps was excellent.

    "Let's Get It Started"? Ugh. If people are offended by your song, you should never change it to make more money from it.

    General CommentWhat Oball is referring to is that the song was originally titled "Let's Get Retarded" not "Let's Get It Started." The group did not want to play "Let's Get Retarded" at a concert, where the front seats of some shows frequently are reserved for disabled people. Actually I didn't know this, I always though that the front seats went to the most connected people and to the highest payers for tickets. But the Black Eyed Peas play a lot of benefit concerts, and at certain public places or benefits they may put the handicapped people in the most accessible area.

    Only some of the lyrics refer to the "retarded" idea, which really has more to do with losing inhibition and not being afraid to let go, even if it means looking like an idiot. This is of course just a party song, kind of like Pink's "Get This Party Started" which is definitely more annoying than this song (Check out the lyrics to that song, now THOSE are real awful lyrics).

    General CommentI totally agree with you stoolhardy. I think the song is meant to just get the party started and get everybody dance how ever their style is even if it makes you look stupid. Most of their songs are dance/club oriented so their lyrics don't make too much sense because you are just supposed to get your groove on, not pay attention to the words.
