  • Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

    Yeah
    Get off

    Music may ease and end all discretion
    So we can get off
    We keep under the sheets with two lovelys
    So we can get off

    Said I hope that we get the promise, ladies
    And make me get off
    Take it from girls with our imagination
    So we can get off

    Call me up at your place, I can love you crazy
    In the heat you will understand
    Danger and excitement, that's what makes a lady
    Find out what she wants in a man

    To get off, to get off, to get off, to get off
    To get off, to get off, to get off, to get, get off

    Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

    Lookin' through that dress that drives me crazy and makes me get off
    Sensuality excites my mind, it makes get off
    If I were you I'd get a good perspective on how to get off
    Love me wild and love me crazy, so we can get off

    Call me up at your place, I can love you crazy
    In the heat you will understand
    Danger and excitement, that's what makes a lady
    Find out what she wants in a man

    To get off, to get off, to get off, to get off
    To get off, to get off, to get off, to get, get off

    Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

    Get off

    So get off to get off, to get off, to get, get off
    Get off to get off, to get off, get off
    So get off, get off, to get off, to get, get off
    Get off to get off, get off, get off

    To get off, to get off, to get off, to get, get off Writer/s: CARL DRIGGS, ISMAEL ANGEL LEDESMA

  • Chad G from Uptown Minneapolis Usa ( Prince’s NeighborhoodStill bumping as if you wrote it yesterday. It’s a princess neighborhood because when I would go to Ragstock secondhand store in my neighborhood I would occasionally see prince there. That was when I was in junior high when I was 19 I ended up working for him for five years. Thank you for contributing music that is memorable
  • That Guy from The 3rd House On The LeftBorat on bass is the best.
  • Mike from SfIt is very clear, if you listen to the record, that they are saying "TIE ME UP at your place...", not "CALL me up". Yet every lyrics website has it as "Call me".
  • George from Cumming , Ga.Singing the chorus is the girl group trio named Wildflower, signed by the same label Dash/T.K. Records as was Foxy.
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyPer: http://www.oldiesmusic.com/news.htm

  • Bill from Minneapolis, MnDon't be fooled, those are women singing the chorus. They're never in the videos nor are credited in any bios of the band or song. some people even think/thought Foxy is a girls group.
