About Time to Get It Together

"Time to Get It Together" is a 1978 song recorded by Marvin Gaye and issued on Marvin's 1978 album, Here, My Dear. Much like "Everybody Needs Love", "Anger" and "A Funky Space Reincarnation", among others, this song doesn't discuss the demise of Marvin's marriage to Anna Gordy Gaye. Instead the song is a biographical account of the singer's own personal demons as he battled drug abuse, paranoia and depression.

Please (time) you got to be a friend of mine

Sometimes I am unable to move
I let temptation get me off of my groove
Sometimes I get it
Sometimes it's hard
To stay with it
Ooh, oh, but right now, baby
Got to get it, get it
Ooh got to stay with it
Makin' up my mind, get it
Gonna get it together
Gonna love every day every night 'til I get it
All right
Pretty good lovin', oh
Get it together
Gonna love every day every night 'til I get it
All right, good lovin', oh
Gonna get it together
Gonna love every day every night 'til I get it
All right, ooh love
Gonna get it together
Gonna love every day every night 'til I get it
All right, baby
Oh Gonna get it together
Gonna love every day every night 'til I get it
All right, ooh

I've been racing against time (tick tock tick tock)
Trying my best to find my way (tick tock tick tock)
Change our world in just one day (tick tock tick tock)
Blowin' coke all up my nose (tick tock tick tock)
Gettin' in and out my clothes (my life's a clock and it's winding down)
Foolin' 'round with midnight ho's (and it's winding down)
But that chapter of life's closed

From the day you're born
'Til the day you're in the ground

I've been racing against time (tick tock tick tock)
Trying my best to find my way (tick tock tick tock)
Change our world in just one day (tick tock tick tock)
Blowin' coke all up my nose (tick tock tick tock)
Gettin' in and out my clothes (my life's a clock and it's winding down)
Foolin' 'round with midnight ho's (and it's winding down)
But that chapter of life's closed

From the day you're born
'Til the day you're in the ground

I've been racing against time (tick tock tick tock)
Trying my best to find my way (tick tock tick tock)
Change our world in just one day (tick tock tick tock)
Blowin' coke all up my nose (tick tock tick tock)
Gettin' in and out my clothes (my life's a clock and it's winding down)
Foolin' 'round with midnight ho's (and it's winding down)
But that chapter of life's closed

From the day you're born
'Til the day you're in the ground
