Get To This – (Song Lyric Sunday)

Twas a toss up between this and Bowie’s Five Years. Whilst a massive fan, I really couldn’t face the depressive story. So we have instead, this upbeat, jolly, little song that will get you tapping your toes at the very least.

The track Get To This comes from the studio album Good Morning Aztlán by the American band Los Lobos, released in 2002. Los Lobos, Spanish for “the Wolves” is an American rock band from East Los Angeles, California, United States. Their music is influenced by rock and roll, Tex-Mex, country, zydeco, folk, R&B, blues, brown-eyed soul, and traditional music such as cumbia, boleros and norteños. The band gained international stardom in 1987, when their cover version of Ritchie Valens’ “La Bamba” topped the charts in the U.S., the UK and several other countries.

I am so missing my dance hall dancing – so please ‘virtually’ join me for a jig along, in the kitchen.

Shake your shoes off and let loose your feet
Go on out and take it to the street
It don’t matter, let ’em all come see
Just grab somebody, anyone you meet

They might be big
They might be small
Maybe brown or round or short or tall
Let’s have us a real good time
Don’t wait long
To get to this
Don’t wait long
To get to this

Shake your head and let your hair fall down
It don’t matter if anyone’s around
Go outside and give ’em all a shout
Let ’em know what it’s all about

We might be big
We might be small
We may be brown ‘n round or six feet tall
Gonna have us a real good time
Don’t be late
And get to this
Don’t be late
And get to this
Don’t be late
And get to this
Don’t be late
And get to this

Shake your shoes off and let loose your feet
Go on out and take it to the street
It don’t matter, let ’em all come see
Just grab somebody, anyone you meet

They might be big
They might be small
Maybe brown or round or short or tall
Let’s have us a real good time
Don’t wait long
And get to this
Don’t wait long
And get to this
Don’t wait long
And get to this
Don’t wait long
And get to this
Don’t wait long
And get to this
Don’t wait long
And get to this
Don’t wait long
And get to this
Don’t wait long
And get to this
Don’t wait long
And get to this
Don’t you wait
Oo don’t you wait
To get to this
Come on baby
Get on down to this
