"Get It On (Bang A Gong)" as written by Marquinarius Sanchez Holmes, Rasheeda Bruckner and Marvin E. Scandrick....
Well you're dirty and sweet, clad in black
Don't look back and I love you
You're dirty and sweet, oh yeah
Well you're slim and you're weak
You've got the teeth of a hydra upon you
You're dirty sweet and you're my girl

Get it on, bang the gong, get it on
Get it on, bang the gong, get it on

You're built like a car,
You've got a hub cap diamond star halo
You're built like a car, oh yeah
You're an untamed youth that's the truth
With your cloak full of eagles
You're dirty sweet and you're my girl

Get it on, bang the gong, get it on
Get it on, bang the gong, get it on

You're windy and wild,
You've got the blues in your shoes and your stockings
You're windy and wild, oh yeah
You're built like a car,
You've got a hub cap diamond star halo
You're dirty sweet and you're my girl

Get it on, bang the gong, get it on
Get it on, bang the gong, get it on

You're dirty and sweet,
Clad in black, don't look back and I love you
You're dirty and sweet, oh yeah
You dance when you walk so let's dance,
Take a chance, understand me
You're dirty sweet and you're my girl

Get it on, bang the gong, get it on
Get it on, bang the gong, get it on

Get it on, bang the gong, get it on
Get it on

Get it on, bang the gong, get it on
Get it on, bang the gong, get it on

Get it on, bang the gong, get it on
Get it on, bang the gong, get it on

Take me
For a meanwhile I'm still thinking

    General Commentactually, "bang a gong" is an old jazz musician term meaning to "snort some cocaine"

    General CommentTbh I don't think Marc Bolan was very influenced by jazz... He probably just liked the phrase because it rhymes. And it's def about sex. If you need proof: listen to the end with the "mmm"s and "uuh"s, and he even says "Take me".

    General CommentIf you listen to the very end he says "Meanwhile I'm still thinkin" which is a line from Chuck Berry's "Little Queenie" where he says that exact thing several times.

    General CommentOf course this song's about doing it. What's a greater mystery is some of the downright bizarre imagery Marc Bolan uses:

    You're an untamed youth, that's the truth, with your cloak full of eagles? Huh?

    Anyone who can give me at least a half decent interpretation for that line get 20 points.
