Lyrics for Pitbull & Shakira – Get It Started

To these rappers I apologize, I know it ain’t fair
Only ball I drop, New Years Times Square
The world is mine, sixth sense, I see the seven signs
Now baby, let’s get started for life

Everytime I look into your eyes
I feel like I could stare in them for a lifetime
We can get started for life (tonight)
For life (tonight) for life (tonight)
We can get started for life (tonight)
For life (tonight) for life (tonight)
We can get started

[Beat break]

Big news, Pitbull, Tom Cruise, Mumbai
I lit up their December nights like the Fourth of July, Vanilla Sky
Thriller in Manila, knocking them out like Pacquiao
No Ali, No Frazier, but for now it’s off to Malaysia
Two passports, three cities, two countries, one day
Now that’s worldwide, if you think it’s a game, let’s play (dale)

Everytime I look into your eyes
I feel like I could stare in them for a lifetime
We can get started for life (tonight)
For life (tonight) for life (tonight)
We can get started for life (tonight)
For life (tonight) for life (tonight)
We can get started

[Beat break]

I am what they thought I’d never become
I believed and became it
Now i’m here to claim it
A hustle anything you name it, name it
I went from eviction to food stamps
To baggin work wet & damp
To a passport flooded with stamps
Now it’s Voli everywhere I land
Two passports, three cities, two countries, one day
Now that’s worldwide, if you think it’s a game, let’s play, dale

Cause if it feels right (you know it feels right)
We shouldn’t waste anymore time
Let’s get it started (let’s get it started)
Don’t think about it (let’s get it started)
You know i’m gonna make it alright, alright (let’s go)
Cause if it feels right
You know made up my mind
Let’s get it started (let’s get it started)
Don’t think about it (let’s get it started)
I know that we can make it alright, alright

Everytime I look into your eyes
I feel like I could stare in them for a lifetime
We can get started for life (tonight)
For life (tonight) for life (tonight)
We can get started for life (tonight)
For life (tonight) for life (tonight)
We can get started

(Don’t start what you can’t finish)

[Beat break]

(You know it feels right, let’s go, You know it feels right)
