T. Rex - Get It On



"Get It On" is a song by the English glam rock band T. Rex, featured on their 1971 album Electric Warrior. Written by frontman Marc Bolan, "Get It On" was the second chart-topper for T. Rex on the UK Singles Chart. In the United States, it was retitled "Bang a Gong (Get It On)" to avoid confusion with a song of the same name by the group Chase.




Jack Green (born 12 March 1951 in Glasgow, Scotland) is a Scottish musician and songwriter.


Green played with T. Rex between 1973 and 1974, then with Pretty Things between 1974 and 1976, recording Silk Torpedo and Savage Eye. After Phil May walked out on the Pretty Things he carried on with Peter Tolson, Gordon Edwards and Skip Alan in Metropolis. He also was a member of Rainbow for three weeks in late 1978.




Lyrics


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 hubcap

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 a gong

Get It On


Get It On

Bang a gong

Get It On


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 hubcap

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


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


Get It On

Bang a gong

Get It On


Get It On


Get It On

Bang a gong

Get It On


Get It On

Bang a gong

Get It On


Get It On

Bang a gong

Get It On


Get It On

Bang a gong

Get It On


Take me

For the meanwhile I'm still thinking
