Get Right


About Get Right

"Get Right" is a song recorded by American singer Jennifer Lopez for her fourth studio album, Rebirth (2005). It was written by Rich Harrison, Usher Raymond and James Brown, and produced by Harrison and Cory Rooney. An upbeat dance and R&B song with jazz and funk influences, "Get Right" marks a departure in Lopez's musical style, and has been called one of her most "memorable" songs by The New York Times. It is built around a sample of "Soul Power 74" by Maceo and the Macks, and was noted for its heavy use of saxophone and horn instrumentation. The song contains lyrics about dancing, sex and drinking at a club. American rapper Fabolous is featured on a separate version of the song which is present as a bonus track on Rebirth. "Get Right" was announced as the album's lead single in November 2004. Music critics generally commended the song's production, but felt that Lopez's "talk-singing" vocals were lackluster. "Get Right" gained immediate worldwide attention following its release, considering Lopez hadn't released new material in over two years. It peaked at number twelve on the Billboard Hot 100 and was certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America. Outside the United States, the song topped the charts in Italy, the Republic of Ireland and the United Kingdom and peaked within the top ten in of the charts in other international music markets, including Australia, Denmark, Germany and Spain.

You're lookin' just a little too hard at me
Standin' just a little too close to me,
You're sayin' not quite enough to me,
You're sippin' just a little too slow for me
No doubt you're playing real cool homie
Got me thinking what is it you do for me?
Tripping (tripping) a little more than I should be
So let yourself go and get right with me

I'm about to sign you up, we can get right
Before the night is up, 
We can get right, we can get right, we can get right,
I'm about to fill you're cup, we can get right,
Before the night is up, 
We can get right, tonight, we can get right

You're lips, talking bout I play too much,
Can't a woman take advantage of what she wants,
My hips, moving oh so slow, (so slow)
Bar tab looking like a condo, (condo)
All I need is you here right by my side
Take whatever you want, baby let's ride,
And whatever you won't do, let me decide,
Just put you're name on the dotted line,


So much we've got to say, but so little time,
And if tonight ain't long enough, don't leave love behind,
(don't leave this love behind)
Baby, take my hand, I'll show you why

[Chorus: x2]

I'm about to sign you up, we can get right
Before the night is up, 
We can get right, we can get right, we can get right,
I'm about to fill you're cup, 
(we can get right,
Before the night is up, 
We can get right, we can get right)
