"Get Right" as written by Maurice Jordan, Jay W. Jenkins and Byron Keith Forest Ii....
You're lookin' just a little too hard at me
Standin' just a little too close to me
You're sayin' not quite enough to me
You're sippin' just a little too slow for me
No doubt you're playing real cool homie
Got me thinking what is it you do for me
Tripping (tripping) a little more than I should be
So let yourself go and get right with me

I'm about to sign you up, we can get right
Before the night is up
We can get right, we can get right, we can get right
I'm about to fill you're cup, we can get right
Before the night is up
We can get right, tonight, we can get right

You're lips, talking bout I play too much
Can't a woman take advantage of what she wants
My hips, moving oh so slow, (so slow)
Bar tab looking like a condo, (condo)
All I need is you here right by my side
Take whatever you want, baby let's ride
And whatever you won't do, let me decide
Just put you're name on the dotted line

I'm about to sign you up, we can get right
Before the night is up
We can get right, we can get right, we can get right
I'm about to fill you're cup, we can get right
Before the night is up
We can get right, tonight, we can get right

So much we've got to say, but so little time
And if tonight ain't long enough, don't leave love behind
(Don't leave this love behind)
Baby, take my hand, I'll show you why

I'm about to sign you up, we can get right
Before the night is up
We can get right, we can get right, we can get right
I'm about to fill you're cup, we can get right
Before the night is up
We can get right, tonight, we can get right

I'm about to sign you up, we can get right
Before the night is up
We can get right, we can get right, we can get right
I'm about to fill you're cup, we can get right
Before the night is up
We can get right, tonight, we can get right

I'm about to sign you up, we can get right
Before the night is up
We can get right, we can get right, we can get right
I'm about to fill you're cup
We can get right
Before the night is up
We can get right, we can get right

    General Commentthis song takes the beat from an unreleased usher song called "ride", and also uses the lyrics So much we got to say, but so little time
    "And if tonight ain't goin' up, don't leave love behind" - it never made it onto confessions so usher sold it to another artist and jlo tnhen decided she wanted to use the beat for this song!

    General CommentThough I'm sure it took whatever from an unreleased Usher song, what people need to notice is the striking similarity to Amerie's '1 thing.'

    General Commentthis site is about your interpretation of the song not whether or not you like the song. not a single one of you haters and likers offered what you think this song means. annoying. It's about being out at a club with your boyfriend and he is acting too cool for school. But it's probably not just at the club that he's "playin it cool," it's probably all the time, that's why she's annoyed. She wants him to loosen up and show her that he has a good time with her. If only he will "let himself go" he could make their relationship right in just one night.

    General CommentI actually like this, even though it's not exactly my type of music... But it's fun to dance too.

    About her wanting her and him (boyfriend/almost boyfriend) to get it right. It's in the text :P
