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:
-According to Ben Edmonds' biography <i>Marvin Gaye: What's Going On and the Last Days of the Motown Sound</i>, Gaye's method of relaxation during recording sessions was notorious at the record label. Not only did he enjoy smoking marijuana, which he was certain was about to be legalized, he spent time brainstorming ideas for pot ads. Songwriter Elgie Stover remembers one particular gem: "Try the Marvin Redeye brand, friends and neighbors. No sticks, no seeds, no stems. Just clean, smooth smoke. Hear that guy laughing? He just sampled Marvin Redeye's private blend."<br /><br />Not everyone at Motown was so easy-going about Gaye's habit. Russ Terrana (recording/mixing engineer) remembers an incident involving Diana Ross just before the two were set to record their 1973 duets album, <b>Diana & Marvin</b>:<br />"Well, as you've probably heard, Marvin liked to smoke a joint when he sang. So he's out in the studio happily puffing away and Diana comes into the control room in a huff 'I'm pregnant and I can't be out there while he's smoking that marijuana bla bla bla.' Marvin is sitting out in the studio in a chair, cool as can be, taking a hit now and then. So Berry (Gordy) gets on the talkback – the room suddenly very quiet – and says 'Uh, Marvin, Diana's pregnant and doesn't want you to be smoking a joint.' Marvin stopped for a second, looked up and said, 'Then I can't sing.' For the rest of the album, they'd come in separately. There was not a single moment when they actually sang together."
