About Get Ready

"Get Ready" is a Motown song written by Smokey Robinson, which resulted in two hit records for the label: a U. S. No. 29 version by The Temptations in 1966, and a U. S. No. 4 version by Rare Earth in 1970. It is significant for being the last song Robinson wrote and produced for the Temptations, due to a deal Berry Gordy made with Norman Whitfield, that if "Get Ready" did not meet with the expected degree of success, then Whitfield's song, "Ain't Too Proud To Beg", would get the next release, which resulted in Whitfield more or less replacing Robinson as the group's producer.

I never met a girl who makes me feel the way that you do
(You're alright)
Whenever I'm asked who makes my dreams real 
I say that you do 
(You're outta sight)
So fee fi fo fum
 
Look out baby 'cause here I come
And I'm bringing you a love that's true so get ready
So get ready 
I'm gonna try to make love to you so get ready
So get ready here I come
Get ready, 'cause here I come
I'm on my way
Get ready, 'cause here I come
 
If you wanna play hide and seek with love let me remind you
(It's alright)
The loving you're gonna miss and the time it takes to find you
(It's outta sight)
So fiddle-lee-dee fiddle-lee-dum
 
Look out baby 'cause here I come
And I'm bringing you a love that's true so get ready
