  • Baby, baby let's get together
    Honey, honey me and you
    And do the things, oh, do the things
    That we like to do

    Oh, do a little dance, make a little love,
    Get down tonight, get down tonight
    Do a little dance, make a little love
    Get down tonight, get down tonight

    Baby, babe I meet you
    Same place, same time
    Where we can, oh, get together
    And ease up our mind

    Oh, do a little dance, make a little love
    Get down tonight, get down tonight
    Do a little dance, make a little love
    Get down tonight, get down tonight, baby

    Do a little dance, make a little love
    Get down tonight, get down tonight
    Do a little dance, make a little love
    Get down tonight, get down tonight, baby

    Get down, get down, get down, get down
    Get down, get down, get down, get down, get down tonight, baby
    Wo, wo, wo, wo, wo, wo, wo, wo
    Get down, get down, get down, get down, get down tonight, baby
    Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na
    Get down, get down, get down, get down, get down tonight, baby
    Wo, wo, wo, wo, wo, wo, wo, wo
    Get down, get down, get down, get down, get down tonight, baby
    Get down, get down, get down, get down, get down tonight, baby
    Wo, wo, wo, wo, wo, wo, wo, wo
    Get down, get down, get down, get down, get down tonight, baby Writer/s: HARRY CASEY, RICHARD FINCH

  • William from Reno, NvI just watched one of their concerts at the "Bomb Factory" on AXS tv and was amazed how many of their songs were so good. Coming from a guy that grew up in that timeframe into Ted, Boston, Thinn Lizzy, REO, Styx and tons of today's Classic Rock it was nice to have enjoyed so much of KC. That old man can still boogie!!!!

  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn August 30th 1975, K.C. & the Sunshine Band performed "Get Down Tonight" on the ABC-TV program 'American Bandstand'...
    At the time the song was at #1 {for 1 week} on Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart; it had entered the chart just under two months earlier on July 6th, 1975 and spent 15 weeks on the Top 100...
    As already stated it was the first of five #1 records by the band; they just missed having a sixth #1 when "Keep In Comin' Love" peaked at #2 {for 3 weeks} on September 25th, 1977...
    K.C., in a duet with Teri Desario, also had another record, "Yes, I'm Ready", peak at #2, for 2 weeks on April 25th, 1980...
    Interestingly; the band's first and last Top 100 record, "Please Don't Go", both peaked at #1 {they had a total of 15 records make the Top 100}.
  • Mike from Nampa, IdThey sped up the guitar part? seems to imply that it couldn't be played that fast. Yet I saw a live video where the guitarist played it at that speed. Anyway, this song gives me the chills when I hear it, especially the beginning guitar. My favorite disco & KC & the Sunshine band song of all time. FANTASTIC!
  • Camille from Toronto, OhYes, the very distinctive guitar riff intro makes this song instantly recognizable and incredibly memorable. It gives you a rush the millisecond you hear it and makes you want to get on the dance floor and GET DOWN! Love it.
  • Larry from Coral Springs, FlThis was one of my all time faves from this band. I thought it was so keen and listening to the instrumental interval so cool!
  • Eric from Maastricht, NetherlandsThis song features in the 1994 movie Forrest Gump
