Bang A Gong (Get It On) 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, oh

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, ooh

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, ow
Get it on, bang a gong, get it on, ow (Get it on)

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

Bang A Gong (Get It On) Info:

• In England, it was called "Get It On (Bang A Gong)." The title was changed on the American release so it would be less offensive.

• Frontman Marc Bolan said that this song was inspired by Chuck Berry's Little Queenie.

• The riff is taken from the Berry song and the last line spoken as the song fades is from that song as well.

Released: 1971
