Get Off

Lyrics and Music by Carl Driggs and IshLedesma
Arranged by Brain Mantia, Melissa Reese, and Scott Kaminski

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh,
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

Yeah
Get off
Music may ease and end all discretion
So we can get off
We keep under the sheets with two lovelies
So we can get off

Said I hope that we get the promise, ladies
And make me get off
Take it from girls with our imagination
So we can get off

Call me up at your place, I can love you crazy
In the heat you will understand
Danger and excitement
That's what makes a lady
Find out what she wants in a man

To get off
To get off
To get off
To get off
To get off
To get off
To get off
To get
Get off

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh,
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

Lookin' through that dress
That drive me crazy and makes me get off
Sensuality excites my mind, it makes me get off
If I were you I'd get a good perspective on how to get off
Love me wild and love me crazy, so we can get off

Call me up at your place, I can love you crazy
In the heat you will understand
Danger and excitement, that's what makes a lady
Find out what she wants in a man

To get off, to get off, to get off, to get off
To get off, to get off, to get off, to get, get off

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

Get off

So get off
To get off
To get off
To get
Get off
Get off
To get off
To get off
Get off
So get off
Get off
To get off
To get
Get off
Get off to get off
Get off
Get off...

Back Story:  

I wanted to make a remake of this deeply raunchy song in the 70’s. The lyrics, which are debatable on their accuracy here, were way ahead of their time. I think the arrangement Brain, Melissa and session guitar player Scott really did the song justice.  I sang the song spontaneously and we recorded all the male vocal tracks in less than 75 minutes.  Melissa really made the “bus stops’ perfect.

Foxy is a LatinDance/disco group formed in 1976 in Miami, Florida. The group consisted of vocalist-guitarist Ish "Angel" Ledesma (born on October 2, 1952 in Cuba), percussionist Richard "Richie" Puente, keyboardist Charlie Murciano, bass guitarist Arnold Paseiro (born on October 30, 1950) and drummer Joe Galdo. Carl Driggs contributed vocals/percussion and shared songwriting credits on their second album, Get Off.  Puente (who died on July 18, 2004 aged 51 of viral encephoplopathy following an assault) was the son of the late, famous bandleader Tito Puente.  Their biggest hit was "Get Off" in 1978 (written by Ledesma and Driggs), which peaked at #9 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #1 on the Soulchart for two weeks. It was their only release from the album Get Off, which was released in 1978.
