Get It On by T Rex

Artist: T Rex

T. Rex

The English rock band T. Rex was formed in 1967 by Marc Bolan, the band’s singer-songwriter and guitarist. Under their original band name of Tyrannosaurus Rex they released four psychedelic albums. From 1969 Bolan began to shift from an acoustic sound to an electric one and shortened the name to T. Rex. Bolan was killed in a car crash in 1977 shortly after the band’s final album Dandy in the Underworld. However, T. Rex has continued to exert influence on a variety of subsequent artists since then.

‘Get It On’ featured on the T. Rex album ‘Electric Warrior’. It was the second chart-topper for the band on the UK Singles Charts. It was retitled ‘Bang a Gong (Get It On)’ to avoid confusion with a song of the same name in the USA.

Lyrics

Well you’re dirty and sweet
Clad in black don’t look back and I love you
You’re dirty and sweet, oh yeah
Well you’re slim and you’re weak
You’ve got the teeth of the hydra upon you
You’re dirty sweet and you’re my girl

Get it on, bang a gong, get it on
Get it on, bang a gong, get it on

Well you’re built like a car
You’ve got a hub cap diamond star halo
You’re built like a car, oh yeah
Well you’re an untamed youth
That’s the truth with your cloak full of eagles
You’re dirty sweet and you’re my girl

Get it on, bang a gong, get it on
Get it on, bang a gong, get it on

Well you’re windy and wild
You’ve got the blues in your shoes and your stockings
You’re windy and wild, oh yeah
Well you’re built like a car
You’ve got a hub cap diamond star halo
You’re dirty sweet and you’re my girl

Get it on, bang a gong, get it on
Get it on, bang a gong, get it on

Well you’re dirty and sweet
Clad in black, don’t look back and i love you
You’re dirty and sweet, oh yeah
Well you dance when you walk
So let’s dance, take a chance, understand me
You’re dirty sweet and you’re my girl

Get it on, bang a gong, get it on
Get it on, bang a gong, get it on
Get it on, bang a gong, get it on – ow – get it on
Get it on, bang a gong, get it on
Get it on, bang a gong, get it on
Take me, for a meanwhile I’m still thinking …
