"Get Up (I Feel Like Being A) Sex Machine" as written by James Brown, Bobby Byrd and Ronald R. Lenhoff....
Fellas, I'm ready to get up and do my thing (yeah go ahead!)
I wanna get into it, man, you know (go ahead!)
Like a, like a sex machine, man, (yeah go ahead!)
Movin', doin' it, you know
Can I count it off? (Go ahead)
One, two, three, four!

Get up, (get on up)
Get up, (get on up)
Stay on the scene, (get on up), like a sex machine, (get on up)
Get up, get on up
Get up, get on up
Stay on the scene, (get on up), like a sex machine, (get on up)
Get up, get on up
Stay on the scene, (get on up), like a sex machine, (get on up)

Wait a minute!
Shake your arm, then use your form
Stay on the scene like a sex machine
You got to have the feeling, soon as you're born
Get it together, right on, right on

Get up, get on up
Get up, get on up
Get up, get on up
Get up, get on up
Get up, get on up
Get up, get on up
Get up, get on up

You said, you said you got the
You said the feeling you got to get
You give me the fever 'n' a cold sweat
The way I like, it is the way it is
I got mine, don't worry 'bout his

Get up, get on up
Stay on the scene, (get on up), like a sex machine, (get on up)
Get up, get on up
Get up, get on up

Bobby! Should I take 'em to the bridge?
(Go Ahead!)
Take 'em on to the bridge!
(Take 'em to the bridge!)
Should I take 'em to the bridge?
(Yeah!)
Take 'em to the bridge?
(Go Ahead!)
Hit me now!
Come on!

Stay on the scene, like a sex machine!
The way I like it, is the way it is
I got mine, (dig it!), he got his

Stay on the scene, like a lovin' machine
Stay on the scene, like a lovin' machine
Stay on the scene

I wanna count it off one more time now
(Go ahead!)
You wanna hear it like it did on the top fellas?
(Yeah!)
Hear it like it did on the top?
(Yeah!)
Hit it now!

Get on up, get on up
Get up, get on up
Get up, get on up
Get on up, get on up

Stay on the scene, (get on up), like a lovin' machine, (get on up)
Get up, get on up

Taste, (get on up)
Bein', (get on up)
Taste, (get on up)
Bein', (get on up)

Get up, get on up
Get up, get on up
Stay on the scene, like a sex machine

You gotta have the feelin', (get on up)
Soon as you're born, (get on up)
Get it together, right on, right on
Right on, right on, (right on, right on)
Right on, right on, (right on, right on)
Right on, right on, (right on, right on)

Get up, (get on up)
Get up, (get on up)
And then, shake your money maker
Shake your money maker
Shake your money maker
Shake your money maker
Shake your money maker
Shake your money maker
Shake your money maker

Get up, get on up
Get up, get on up
Get up, get on up
Get up, get on up
Get up, get on up

Get up, get on up
Get up, get on up
Get up, get on up

Can we hit it like we did one more time, from the top
Can we hit like that one more time
(One more time!)
One more time!
Let's hit it and quit! (Go ahead!)
Can we hit it and quit? (Yeah!)
Can we hit it and quit? (Yeah!)
Can we hit it and quit? (Yeah!)
Hit it!

    Song MeaningThe song's about goin' at it consistently and tirelessly until the job is properly done... like a sex machine... duh? If you listen to the rhythm section, you can hear that they practice what they preach.

    Oh, and when he starts randomly yelling "taste" (which is hilarious, by the way) I think he's also saying "piano" not "being". But he's pronouncing it "piana". Which I think would fit in with the way he talks. Plus right after he says that he begins hammering on the "piana" like a maniac...

    General CommentCall and response, roots of soul, irresistable rhythm. Often imitated but never replicated, King James at his very best. Get On Up!
