Can You Get to That
Funkadelic Lyrics


I once had a life, or rather
Life had me
I was one among many
Or at least I seemed to be
Well, I read an old quotation in a book just yesterday
Said, "gonna reap just what you sow
The debts you make you have to pay"
Can you get to that?

Can you get (I want to know)
I want to know if you can get to that (hey) (get to that)
Can you get (can you get to that)(I want to know)
I want to know if you can get to that

I recollect with a-mixed emotions
All the good times we used to have
But you were making preparations
For the coming separation
And you blew everything we had

When you base your love on credit
And your loving days are done
Checks you signed with a-love and kisses
Later come back signed "insufficient funds"
Yeah, get to that

Can you get (I want to know)
I want to know if you can get to that (hey) (get to that)
Can you get (can you get to that)(I want to know)
I want to know if you can get to that

Can you get (I want to know)
I want to know if you can get to that (hey) (get to that)
Can you get (can you get to that)(I want to know)
I want to know if you can get to that

Can you get
I want to know if you can get to that

When you base your life on credit
And your loving days are done
Checks you signed with love and kisses
Later come back signed "insufficient funds"
Y'all get to that

Can you get (I want to know)
I want to know if you can get to that (hey) (get to that)
Can you get (can you get to that)(I want to know)
I want to know if you can get to that

Can you get (I want to know)
I want to know if you can get to that (hey) (get to that)
Can you get (can you get to that)(I want to know)

I once had a life, or rather, life had me
I was one among many or at least I seemed to be

Well, I read an old quotation in a book just yesterday
Said "Gonna reap just what you sow
The debts you make you have to pay."
Can you get to that?

[Hook]
Can you get (I wanna know)
I want to know if you can get to that (hey! get to that!)
Can you get (can you get to that? I wanna know)
I want to know if you can get to that

I recollect with a-mixed emotions
All the good times we used to have
But you were making preparations
For the coming separation
And you blew everything we had
When you base your love on credit
And your loving days are done
Checks you signed with a-love and kisses
Later come back signed "insufficient funds"
Yeah, get to that

Can You Get to That
Funkadelic
Produced by George Clinton
Album Maggot Brain

[Verse 1]
I once had a life, or rather, life had me
I was one among many, or at least, I seemed to be
Well, I read an old quotation in a book just yesterday
Said, "Gonna reap just what you sow, the debts you make, you have to pay" (Can you get to that?)

[Chorus]
Can you get (I wanna know)
I wanna know if you can get to that (Hey, get to that)

[Verse 2]
I recollect with a-mixed emotions all the good times we used to have
But you were making preparations for the coming separation and you blew everything we had
When you base your love on credit and your loving days are done
Checks you signed with a-love and kisses, later come back signed, "Insufficient funds" (Yeah, get to that)

[Verse 3]
When you base your life on credit and your loving days are done
The checks you signed with love and kisses, later come back signed, "Insufficient funds"
Y'all get to that

This came up as a recommended spotify song when I was listening to Minnie Riperton. Heard it for the first time on the side of a snow-covered mountain during a hike. Hit just right!

I got this album from a lady in her 50s that I worked with in a dead-end office job. She turned up at work one day and gave me a stack of CDs. This was the first one I put on when I got home. Maaaaan... with Maggot Brain followed by this track my mind was blown. Best thing that ever came out of that shit job.

I love this story! That’s what good music is for. One song and your life can completely change.

This morning my 20-something daughter was jamming this. I've done something right.
