“Get Off” by Prince Lyrics

Waah-dow!
Aaagh-aaagh-aaagh! (Club mix)

How can I put this in a way so as not to offend or unnerve?
There’s a rumour goin’ all round that you ain’t been gettin’ served
They say that you ain’t you know what in baby who knows how long
It’s hard for me to say what’s right when all I wanna do is wrong

Gett off
(Twenty three positions in a one night stand)
Gett off
(I’ll only call you after if you say I can)
Gett off
(Let a woman be a woman and a man be a man)
Gett off
(If you want to, baby here I am)
Here I am

I clocked the jizz from a friend of yours named Vanessa Bet (Bet)
She said you told her a fantasy that got her all wet (Wet)
Something about a little box with a mirror and a tongue inside (Yeah)
What she told me then got me so hot I knew that we could slide

Gett off
(Twenty three positions in a one night stand)
Gett off
(I’ll only call you after if you say I can)
Gett off
(Let a woman be a woman and a man be a man)
Gett off
(If you want to, baby here I am)
Here I am

Gett off

One, two, three nah, little cutie, I ain’t drinkin’, (gett off)
Scope this, I was just thinkin’, you plus me, what a ride
If you was thinkin’ the same, we could continue outside, (gett off)
Lay your pretty body against a parkin’ meter, strip your dress down
Like I was strippin’ a Peter Paul’s, Almond Joy
Lemme show you baby, I’m a talented boy

Gett off (gett off)

So here we, so here we, so here we are
Here we are in my paisley crib
“Whatcha want to eat?”
(“Ribs”)
“Ha, ‘Toy, I don’t serve ribs
You better be happy that dress is still on
I heard the rip when you sat down”

Honey, them hips is gone
That’s alright, I clock ’em that way
Remind me of something James used to say…
“I like ’em fat, I like ’em proud”
“Ya gotta have a mother for me”
“Now move your big ass ’round this way”
“So I can work on that zipper, baby”
“Tonight – you’re a star and I’m the Big Dipper”

Na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na
Kick it
(Gett off)
(Get off)

How can I put this in a way so as not to offend or unnerve? (Gett off)
There’s a rumour goin’ all round that you ain’t been gettin’ served (Gett off)
They say that you ain’t you know what in, baby who knows how long (Gett off)
It’s hard for me to say what’s right when all I wanna do is wrong

Gett off
(Twenty three positions in a one night stand)
Gett off
(I’ll only call you after if you say I can)
Gett off
(Let a woman be a woman and a man be a man)
Gett off
(If you want to, baby here I am)
(Come on)
(Gett off)

(Gett off, gett off)
(Gett off, gett off)
