My stick, I just love my stick
My stick, I just love my stick
Girl, your ride is bad but you can't compare
To my baby black Cadillac, oh, so rare
Take a vacation, I don't care
'Cause I can get some stimulation anywhere
You just come too quick, I'd rather work my stick
Get a little satisfaction, work the stick in my ride
You just come too quick, I'd rather work my stick
Get a little satisfaction, work the stick in my ride
Get a little satisfaction, work the stick in my ride
Get a little satisfaction, work the stick in my ride
Girl, you come too quick, much, much too quick
Girl, you come too quick, I'll just work the stick
Offer me your body, I have to pass
'Cause every time we make love, you run out of gas
Girl, my car's so bad it runs on H2O
No, you can't compete, it's got the cruise control
You just come too quick, I'd rather work my stick
Get a little satisfaction, work the stick in my ride
You just come too quick, I'd rather work my stick
Get a little satisfaction, work the stick in my ride
Get a little satisfaction, work the stick in my ride
Everybody get a little satisfaction, work the stick in my ride
Girl, you come too quick, much, much too quick
Girl, you come too quick, I have to work the stick
I've been drivin', baby, since the age of thirteen
I'm the baddest driver you've ever seen
You know I like it fast and I like it slow
Sometimes I let the top down when I wanna let go
You just come too quick, I'd rather work my stick
You just come too quick, I'd rather work my stick
You just come too quick, I'd rather work my stick
Get a little satisfaction, work the stick in my ride
Get a little satisfaction, work the stick in my ride
Everybody get a little satisfaction, work the stick in my ride
Get a little satisfaction, work the stick in my ride
What time is it?
I said, what time is it?
You just come too quick, I'd rather work my stick
Somebody bring me a mirror so I can
What, what song we on?
You just come too quick, I'd rather work my stick
Get a little satisfaction, work the stick in my ride
Get a little satisfaction, work the stick in my ride
Get a little satisfaction, work the stick in my ride
Get a little satisfaction, work the stick in my ride
Get a little satisfaction, work the stick in my ride
Get a little satisfaction, work the stick in my ride
Get a little satisfaction, work the stick in my ride
Get a little satisfaction, work the stick in my ride
Get a little satisfaction, work the stick in my ride
What time is it?
Alright, oh no
I don't need you, baby, I'll just work the stick in my ride
I don't need your action, baby
Get a little satisfaction, work the stick in my ride
Get a little satisfaction, work the stick in my ride
Get a little satisfaction, work the stick in my ride
Get a little satisfaction, work the stick in my ride
Sing it, get a little satisfaction, work the stick in my ride
Get a little satisfaction, work the stick in my ride
Get a little satisfaction, work the stick in my ride
Get a little satisfaction, work the stick in my ride, everybody
You just come too quick, I'd rather work my stick
You just come too quick, I'd rather work my stick
You just come too quick, I'd rather work my stick
It's about time to go, no
I said, I don't need you, girl
Hey, somebody bring me a mirror
So I can look at my stick
Hey, alright? You wanna see it?
Should I take it out?
Take it out, man
Hey, later, y'all

I think it's written from a female perspective of being dissatisified with her male lover:

You just come too quick, I'd rather work my stick

I don't need you, baby, I'll just work the stick in my ride

If so, I always wondered if this was a guide vocal for Vanity and then P just put it on the Time album, though I doubt it as they performed it live.

Well, Lisa allegedly wrote it so that would all make sense. Though it does change the perspective in a funky way to have a man sing it.

the come too quick part -sound like something a woman would say

But the rest is definately a man.

Vanity wasn't in the camp in early 1981

I don't think there was any plan, that I've read, of having a female option. I believe these songs were specifically crafted for the Time's freshman album

on an album with GREAT SONGS,

THE STICK is my favorite jam here.

.

I always thought (or, at least, I always sing)

that 1st line as "girl your body's bad"..

.

I love the bass line in this song

& the killer guitar solo (by Dez??)

I'll see you tonight..
in ALL MY DREAMS..

Both Get it Up and The Stick sounds as if they were originally written for a female. I love the tracks but to this day I get a chuckle and still don't get how the lyrics work for a male vocalist. Morris pulled it off though.

I alway wondered what the band felt when the listened to the lyrics.

.

....and then there's Jerk Out lol
