"Get Up I wanna Get Down" as written by Taylor Hawkins, Gannin Duane Arnold, Chris Chaney and Thomas Andrew Hester....
Get up, I want to get down
Get up, I want to get down
Don't wanna be no cynic
Wanna get right in it
Don't wanna close my eyes
Don't need a big surprise

It never turn out quite exactly as you planned
You don't always have to try and take the upper hand
If you feel guilty that's OK because I feel guilty too

Get up, I want to get down
Get up, I want to get down
I don't want to burn ya
So buddy don't you burn me
I don't want to owe ya
So why don't you give it to me

You've been looking for the enemy for way too long
You can try and keep the balance but you're not that strong
You keep lookin' for a better way of gettin' vile

Get up, I want to get down
Get up, I want to get down
Get up, I want to get down
Get up, I want to get down

Get up, I want to get down
Get up, I want to get down

Get up, I want to get down

You've been looking for the enemy for way too long
You can try and keep the balance but you're not that strong
You keep lookin' for a better way of gettin' vile

Get up, I want to get down
Get up, I want to get down
Get up, I want to get down

Get up, I want to get down
Get up, I want to get down
Get up, I want to get down
Get up, I want to get down

    General CommentThis song gets stuck in my head constantly...I think it's about how topsy-turvy everything can be. I mean, to me, that's what the line "get up I wanna get down" says.

    General Commenti heard Taylor say it is about how Dave Grohl was depressed and Taylor wrote that song for him...It was a possible song for In Your Honor from the Foos...The Foos also had it in mind to name their album..It eneded up up on Taylors obviously. GREAT GREAT album.
