Get It Started

Album: Global Warming (2012)
Charted: 64 89
  • To these rappers I apologize, I know it ain't fair
    Only ball I drop, New Year's Times Square
    The world is mine, sixth sense, I see the seventh sense
    Now baby, let's get started for life

    Every time I look into your eyes
    I feel like I could stare in them for a lifetime
    We can get started for life (tonight)
    For life (tonight) for life (tonight)
    We can get started for life (tonight)
    For life (tonight) for life (tonight)
    We can get started

    Big news, Pitbull, Tom Cruise, Mumbai
    A lit up their December night like the fourth of July, vanilla sky
    Thriller in Manila, knocking them out like Pacquiao
    No Ali, no Frasier, but for now it's off to Malaysia
    Two passports, three cities, two countries, one day
    Now that's worldwide, if you think it's a game, let's play, dale

    Every time I look into your eyes
    I feel like I could stare in them for a lifetime
    We can get started for life (tonight)
    For life (tonight) for life (tonight)
    We can get started for life (tonight)
    For life (tonight) for life (tonight)
    We can get started

    (You know it feels right)

    I am what they thought I'd never become
    I believe and became it
    Now I'm here to claim it
    I hustle anything you name it, name it
    I went from eviction to food stamps
    To baggin work, wet & damp
    To a passport flooded with stamps
    Now it's Volì everywhere I land
    Two passports, three cities, two countries, one day
    Now that's worldwide, if you think it's a game, let's play, dale

    Cause if it feels right (you know it feels right)
    We shouldn't waste anymore time
    Let's get it started (let's get it started)
    Don't think about it (let's get it started)
    You know I'm gonna make it alright, alright (let's go)

    Cause if it feels right
    You know I made up my mind
    Let's get it started (let's get it started)
    Don't think about it (let's get it started)
    I know that we can make it alight, alright

    Every time I look into your eyes
    I feel like I could stare in them for a lifetime
    We can get started for life (tonight)
    For life (tonight) for life (tonight)
    We can get started for life (tonight)
    For life (tonight) for life (tonight)
    We can get started

    (Don't start what you can't finish)
