"Get It Like You Like It" as written by and Ben Harper....
Throw your hands up to the sky
And scream out loud I'm free
Cause wrong is the new right
So we can cut loose tonight
It costs a lot to look this cheap

Fire makes it burn and water makes it turn
We must still be here living on earth
They keep telling me Jesus walked on water
He shoulda surfed

In 1918 the great bambino
Kicked a piano into Willis Pond
But Johnny Damon swung a bat
Grand slam that was that
An eighty six year curse is gone

Throw your hands up to the sky
And scream I'm not alone
Is it irony or fate
Don't become what you hate
We've all got stardust in our bones

Get it like you like it

    General CommentYou don't even have to listen to the lyrics. If you hear this song, you know it's about having a great time with life.

    General CommentOf course, the whole third verse refers to the Red Sox 2004 World Series championship, which is legendary in Boston. He doesn't appear to have roots in Boston. Apparently, this song debuted at a local club in Boston on a tour, likely around the time of the Red Sox's championship, so this verse made it all the way to the studio release.

    General Commentall lyrics submitted by adam1989 have the chorus at the end of the song.
    which makes plenty of sense to me.


    i kind of think this song has a little bit of a sarcastic tone?
