    Music & Lyrics : Bob Marley

    Stir it up little darling, stir it up
    Come on baby come on and stir it up little darling, stir it up
    It's been a long long time since I've got you on my mind
    And now you are here
    I say it's so clear
    To see what we can do, honey, just me and you

    Come on and stir it up, little darling, stir it up
    Come on baby come on and stir it up little darling, stir it up
    I'll push the wood, I'll blaze your fire
    Then I'll satisfy your heart's desire
    Said I'll stir it up, yeah, ev'ry minute, yeah
    All you got to do is keep it in, baby
    And stir it up, little darling, stir it up
    Come on and stir it up, oh, little darling, stir it up, yeah

    Oh, will you quench me while I'm thirsty?
    Come and cool me down when I'm hot?
    Your recipe, darling, is so tasty
    And you sure can stir your pot
    So stir it up, little darling, stir it up
    Come on and stir it up, oh, little darling, stir it up
    Come on and stir it up, oh, little darling, stir it up Writer/s: ALLEE WILLIS, DANNY SEMBELLO

  • G Conley from DetroitAnybody know who played ocarina on the Johnny Nash mellow version of Bob Marley’s “Stir It Up”?
  • Christopher from West VirginiaActually there were two versions of this song recorded by Nash. The first was the one used only on the single and is rougher and slightly more up-tempo. It recreates much better the Reggae feel. The second more common version is more mellow and sounds rather polished. I was once told that Nash recorded his first version in Jamaica and the second in New York but given the similarity in the instrumental tracks that is very hard to say with certainty.
