"Get Right" as written by Maurice Jordan, Jay W. Jenkins and Byron Keith Forest Ii....
Guess who
J to the Lo
F to the A-B
Oh, yeah, oh, yeah, oh, yeah

I'm ain't Mr. Right, I'm Mr. Right Now (oh)
I keep women in thongs comin' along (oh)
Invisibly set stones, some of them prone
I can tell you ain't never had someone this long
One night, have them bumpin' my song like mmm, mmm girl
You ain't know I was comin' this strong
Now you know not to come at me wrong
I get right, uh

You lookin' just a little too hard at me
Standin' just a little too close to me
You sayin' not quite in love to me
You sippin' just a little too slow for me
No doubt you're playin' real cool homey
Got me thinkin' what is it you do for me
Trippin' (trippin') a little more than I should be
So let yourself go and get right with me

I'm about to sign you up
We can get right before the night is up
We can get right, get right
We can get right, get right
We can get right

I'm about to fill your cup
We can get right before the night is up
We can get right, get right, tonight
We can get right

Your lips talkin' about I play too much
Can't a woman take advantage of what she wants
My hips movin' oh so slow (so slow)
Bar tab lookin' like a car note (car note)
All I need is you here right by my side
Take whatever you want baby let's ride
And whatever you want you let me decide
Just put your name on the dotted line

I'm about to sign you up
We can get right before the night is up
We can get right, get right
We can get right, get right
We can get right

I'm about to fill your cup
We can get right before the night is up
We can get right, get right, tonight
We can get right

So much we got to say, but so little time
And if tonight ain't long enough
Don't leave love behind
Baby take my hand I'll show you why

I'm about to sign you up
We can get right before the night is up
We can get right, get right
We can get right, get right
We can get right

I'm about to fill your cup
We can get right before the night is up (oh, oh, oh)
We can get right, get right, tonight (oh, oh, oh, oh)
We can get right

It's slim with the tilted rim on 20 inch rims
Rock up wrist watch, 6 inch Timbs
Button-up shirt cuffed with the French trim
So you can tell a man get to the right (oh)
I'm in the driver's seat, you sit to the right
And this is just to get to the flight
I like the way it fit to you tight
So I'mma show you the world in a day for you
Even get to the night
I'm lookin' for a dime, but I don't need a penny though
Any old wannabe Jenny-Lo, no
Plenty dough and there's plenty more where it come from
I'm the Real Talk where I come from, oh

I'm about to sign you up
We can get right before the night is up
We can get right, get right
We can get right, get right
We can get right

I'm about to fill your cup
We can get right before the night is up
We can get right, get right, tonight
We can get right

I'm about to sign you up
We can get right before the night is up
We can get right, get right
We can get right, get right
We can get right

I'm about to fill your cup
We can get right before the night is up
We can get right, get right

    General Commentthis song takes the beat from an unreleased usher song called "ride", and also uses the lyrics So much we got to say, but so little time
    "And if tonight ain't goin' up, don't leave love behind" - it never made it onto confessions so usher sold it to another artist and jlo tnhen decided she wanted to use the beat for this song!

    General CommentThough I'm sure it took whatever from an unreleased Usher song, what people need to notice is the striking similarity to Amerie's '1 thing.'

    General Commentthis site is about your interpretation of the song not whether or not you like the song. not a single one of you haters and likers offered what you think this song means. annoying. It's about being out at a club with your boyfriend and he is acting too cool for school. But it's probably not just at the club that he's "playin it cool," it's probably all the time, that's why she's annoyed. She wants him to loosen up and show her that he has a good time with her. If only he will "let himself go" he could make their relationship right in just one night.

    General CommentI actually like this, even though it's not exactly my type of music... But it's fun to dance too.

    About her wanting her and him (boyfriend/almost boyfriend) to get it right. It's in the text :P
