Get It On


Written: 1971

Writers: David Jenneson, Alan Hovden

Status: Recorded but unpublished

Genre and Style: Rock dance song with great hooky riffs.

Comments: Dave: I wrote Get It On at 2 AM one night after a gig when I couldn’t sleep. It reflects the profound emptiness one can feel after a night of performing in front of a wild crowd when suddenly the club is empty and you have nowhere to go. Although it bears a message of recrimination toward the mindlessly partying audience they never picked up on it and it became a mainstay of the Burner stage list.

Comments: Al: The song the band hated but the crowd loved… go figure.



Box full of faces

Just look at the crowd

Fill in the spaces

With the powdery cloud

And pity the hands tries to grab the good times when they’re gone.

Get it on!

Get it on!


Pay for the package

It’s a buck at the door

Down in the back

You can fuck on the floor

Yes you are the ones to whom I dedicate this song

Get it on!

Get it on!


I felt so tired all my frenzy was gone

Then someone in the back yelled

Hey man, GET IT ON!


Street full of midnight

And a face of regret

Something don’t feel right

But I can’t see it yet

Then I looked up and I saw all the people were gone

Get it on!

Get it on!


Eardrums are bursting

As I lay on my bed

Body is thirsting

Because he ain’t been fed

You gave me your heart but it turned out to be just a con

Get it on!

Get it on!


I felt so tired all my frenzy was gone

Then someone in the back yelled

Hey man – GET IT ON!
