Let’s Get it On

Yes, Let’s Get it On

Let's Get it On
Let’s Get it On

Every so often a rare person emerges within a culture- a person who speaks for an entire generation. Like a conduit, these amazing individuals seem to channel the thoughts, desires, aspirations, and feelings of the masses. Call them prophets. Call them leaders. Call them saviors. Call them baby. Just call them baby.

Marvin Gaye is one such figure. He put into words, and then into song, what we were all feeling. One needn’t be a scholar to understand his message. It is, “Let’s get it on.”

Let’s get it on. Yes, let us all get it on.

Try reading these lyrics out loud. The workplace is an ideal venue. As you read, try to maintain eye contact with the listener. Read slowly and with conviction.

I’ve been really tryin’, baby
Tryin’ to hold back this feelin’ for so long
And if you feel like I feel, baby
Then come on, oh come on

Let’s get it on, ah baby
Let’s get it on, let’s love, baby
Let’s get it on, sugar
Let’s get it on, whoo-ooh-ooh

We’re all sensitive people
With so much to give, understanding, sugar
Since we got to be
Let’s live, I love you

There’s nothing wrong with me
Lovin’ you, baby no no
And givin’ yourself to me could never be wrong
If the love is true, oh baby

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 gonna worry
I ain’t gonna push, I won’t push you baby
So come on, come on, come on, come on, come on baby
Stop beatin’ ’round the bush

Let’s get it on
Let’s get it on, you know what I’m talkin’ about
Come on baby, hey hey, let your love come out
If you believe in love,

Let’s get it on, let’s get it on, baby
This minute, oh yeah
Let’s get it on, please,
Please get it on

I know that you know what I’ve been dreaming of
Don’t you baby?
My whole body wants the feeling of love,
Ah help me!

I ain’t gonna worry,
No I ain’t gonna push, I won’t push you baby
So come on, come on, come on, come on, come on darlin’
Stop beatin’ ’round the bush

Oh, gonna get it on, threatening you, baby
I want to get it on, you don’t have to worry that it’s wrong
If the spirit moves you, let me groove you
Good, let your love come down, oh, get it on,

Come on baby, do you know the meaning of being sanctified?
Girl, you give me good feelings, so good, something like sanctifying
Oh, do right baby.

Nothing wrong with love, if you wanna love me baby, Just let yourself go, oh, baby, let’s get it on
