"Get It On" 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 the hydra upon you
You're dirty sweet and you're my girl

Get it on, bang a gong, get it on
Get it on, bang a gong, get it on

Well you're built like a car
You've got a hub cap diamond star halo
You're built like a car, oh yeah
Well 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 a gong, get it on
Get it on, bang a gong, get it on - oh

Well you're windy and wild
You've got the blues in your shoes and your stockings
You're windy and wild, oh yeah
Well 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 a gong, get it on
Get it on, bang a gong, get it on - ooh

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 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 a gong, get it on
Get it on, bang a gong, get it on - ow
Get it on, bang a gong, get it on - ow - get it on - mh

Get it on, bang a gong, get it on - a-a-a-a
Get it on, bang a gong, get it on - a-a-a-a ....
Take me, for a meanwhile I'm still thinking ....

    General CommentWell, it depends on where you're coming from. In the UK, they had a bunch of hits, but in the US it's safe to say this was their only hit.

    Anyway, it's kind of amazing how cool this song still sounds after it's been used in a ton of commercials and has basically been played to death. Makes me want to smoke a ciggerette and lean up against a wall, but I quit.

    General CommentI would have liked this as a chorus

    Sing a Song...Bang a Gong...Get it on!

    Still, it's a great tune and the song's riff is one of a kind, not to be copied or cheated.
