Get Ready Lyrics

I never met a girl who makes me feel the way that you do (you’re alright)
Whenever I’m asked who makes my dreams real I say that you do (you’re outta sight)
So fee di fi, fo di dum. Look out baby ’cause here I come

And I’m bringing you a love that’s true so get ready, so get ready
I’m gonna try to make you love me too so get ready, so get ready, here I come
(Get ready ’cause here I come) I’m on my way (Get ready ’cause here I come)

If you wanna play hide and seek with love let me remind you (It’s alright)
The loving you’re gonna miss and the time it takes to find you (It’s outta sight)
So twiddle-dee-dee twiddle dee dum. Look out baby ’cause here I come

And I’m bringing you a love that’s true so get ready, so get ready
I’m gonna try to make you love me too so get ready, so get ready, here I come
(Get ready ’cause here I come) I’m on my way (Get ready ’cause here I come)

Solo (Get ready)

All of my friends shouldn’t want you to, I understand it (Be alright)
I hope I’ll get to you before they do, the way I planned it (Be outta sight)
So twiddle-dee twiddle-dee dum. Look out baby ’cause here I come

And I’m bringing you a love that’s true so get ready, so get ready
I’m gonna try to make you love me too so get ready, so get ready, here I come

(Get ready ’cause here I come, now) I’m on my way
(Get ready ’cause here I come, now) Thinking of staying
(Get ready ’cause here I come, now)

‘Get Ready’ is a song that moves from a repetitive Minor Pentatonic verse riff to a simple four-chord chorus progression.

In the course, we’ll first play the chorus chords all over the neck before I show you how to construct your own chorus part.

When the solo comes along we take the original sax and string ideas and put them on the guitar.

Finally, you get to play the entire song with a live band!
