Marvin Gaye
Got To Give It Up (Part One)

I used to go out to parties
And stand around
'Cause I was too nervous
To really get down
And my body yearned to be free
So I got up on the floor and found
Someone to choose me
No more standin' along the side walls
Now I've got myself together, baby
And I'm havin' a ball
Long as you prove it
There's always a chance
Somebody watches
I'm gonna make romance
With your body, ooo baby, you dance all night
Get down and prove it, feel all right
. . . .
(repeat and fade):
Keep on dancin'
Got to give it up

I used to got out to parties
And stand around
'Cause I was too nervous
To really get down
But my body yearned to be free
I got up on the floor so
Somebody could choose me

No more standin' upside the walls
Now I've got myself together, baby
I'm havin' a ball
Long as you're movin'
There's always a chance
Somebody's watchin'
Might wanna make romance
Move your body, oooh baby, you dance all night
Get down and move it, feel all right

(repeat and fade out)
Keep on dancin'
Got to give it up

I used to go out to parties
And stand around
'Cause I was too nervous
To really get down
And my body yearned to be free
So I got up on the floor and found
Someone to choose me
No more standin' along the side walls
Now I've got myself together, baby
And I'm havin' a ball
Long as you prove it
There's always a chance
Somebody watches
I'm gonna make romance
With your body, ooo baby, you dance all night
Get down and prove it, feel all right
. . . .
(repeat and fade):
Keep on dancin'
Got to give it up

SONG MEANING / BACKGROUND INFO
What does Got To Give It Up (Part 1) mean?

... update background information ...

Provided courtesty of songfacts.com:
-Motown founder Berry Gordy has called Marvin Gaye's 1971 protest album, <b>What's Going On</b>, "the most prestigious record" the label ever released. Gordy was not so optimistic when he first got wind of Gaye's project years earlier. He thought it was another one of the singer's crazy schemes, like when he wanted to become a boxer or a professional football player. The making of the <b>What's Going On</b> album has become the stuff of legend with Gordy as the villain trying to block its release and Gaye as the hero threatening to never record with Motown again unless he relented.<br /><br />Gordy admits it took him awhile to accept the idea but claims the stories are false. He told the <i>Wall Street Journal</i> in 2011, "Once he told me he wanted to awaken the minds of mankind, and I could see in his eyes how serious he was, I had to let him do it." He later added. "I thought those records would ruin him. Instead, they made him an icon."
