  • I've been really tryin', baby
    Tryin' to hold back this feeling for so long
    And if you feel like I feel, baby
    Then, c'mon, oh, c'mon

    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

    We're all sensitive people
    With so much to give
    Understand me, sugar
    Since we've got to be here
    Let's live
    I love you

    There's nothing wrong with me
    Loving you, baby no no
    And giving yourself to me can never be wrong
    If the love is true, oh baby

    Ooh don't you know how sweet and wonderful life can be ooh
    I'm asking you baby to get it on with me ooh ooh
    I ain't gonna worry
    I ain't gonna push, won't push you baby
    So c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, baby
    Stop beatin' 'round the bush, hey

    Let's get it on
    Let's get it on
    You know what I'm talkin' 'bout
    C'mon, baby
    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 and you know what I've been dreaming of, don't you baby?

    You don't have to worry that it's wrong
    If the spirit moves ya
    Let me groove ya good
    Let your love come down
    Oh, get it on

    C'mon, baby

    I've been sanctified
    Girl, you give me good feeling
    I've been sanctified

    Oh dear I, baby

    If you want to love me just let your self go

  • David Aigaotupu Ianusi Cordtz from Carrara River Garden Caravans Park Gold Coast Queensland Australian What a beautiful music Marvin Gaye Let's get on it moved me so much and I loved thanks for the beautiful music I've loved.
  • Meocyber from Alma. Co.One of the very best expression of men's needs and wants of women.
  • Neel from MumbaiEd Sheeran?
  • Tammy from Fredericksburg, VaDoes anyone remember this song from "The King of Queens"? Deke & Kelly, Doug & Carrie all went away for a romantic retreat weekend. Too funny!
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyThis song spent two weeks at #1 but not consecutively. On September 8th, 1973 it reached #1 but after one week "Delta Dawn" by Helen Reddy
    replaced it for one week. Then Marvin reclaimed #1 for another week!!!
  • John from Nashville, TnEd Townsend finally wrote his "gettin' on with life after beating alcoholism song" called "Finally Got Myself Together". It was a #1 r&b hit and a top 20 pop hit for the post- Curtis Mayfield Impressions.
  • Del from Ohakunie, New Zealandwish a guy would sing this to me lol
  • David from Youngstown, OhThat smooth opening is instantly recognizable. It's one of Marvin Gaye's greatest performances. What I love is he doesn't mince words. He wants to have sex and is very, very straight-forward. "Stop beating 'round the bush" is a great touch.
  • Ben from Hillsborough, NjI think that this song is very sexy and meaningful, and sparks a lot of enthusiasum. great song, very 1970's style, too.
