Let's Get It On Lyrics

I've been really trying, baby
Trying to hold back these feelings for so long
And if you feel, like I feel baby
Come on, oh, come on

Let's get it on
Let's get it on
Let's get it on
Let's get it on

We're all sensitive people
With so much love to give
Understand me, sugar
Since we got to be
Let's say, I love you

There's nothing wrong with me
Loving you
And giving yourself to me
Can never be wrong
If the love is true

Don't you know how sweet and wonderful life can be?
I'm asking you baby, to get it on with me
I ain't going to worry, I ain't going to push
So come on, come on, come on, come on baby
Stop beating around the bush . . .

Let's get it on
Let's get it on
Let's get it on
Let's get it on

I believe this song is about sexual intercourse.

This song is about checkers, as far as I can tell.

This song is clearly about the rigors of Viking life in eighteenth-century Scandinavia. "Getting it on" was Viking slang for the ritual sacrificing of a goat in reverence to the Norse god Odin.

Marvin really chose to emphasize the heartbreak of Viking mothers and wives forced to send their brood off to rape and pillage the English countryside, the line "we're all sensitive people" is a direct reference to a saying passed down through Scandinavian lore (original tongue "Ragnarok yule'woad gwe'lheny") which Vikings uttered moments before plunging their halberds into the chests of farmhands.

It's about fuckin'.

My Interpretation

Wrong

Ok, pedant. It's about Marvin Gaye wanting to fuck a 16 year old girl.

No, no, I believe natasha is on to something... this song may be about the sex! I always interpreted this song as being M. Gaye's emotional observation on the Soviet threat on the modern world, but PERHAPS... it's just about hitting that proverbial shit.

If you've listened to Marvin before and after this album you'll know that he was a deeply religious man. However he was also a very sexual man and this song is written from the perspective of a Christian male battling between his faith and his sexuality.

This is one of the coolest songs ever written. It's so great embodying sex as a great time for both. And it just sounds so good. Marvin Gaye is awesome.
