The Nitty Gritty
Gladys Knight & The Pips Lyrics


Yeah, mmm, yeah
Do you know that some folks know about it, some don't
Some will learn to shout it, some won't
But sooner or later baby, here's a ditty

Say you're gonna have to get right down to the real nitty gritty
Now let's get right on down to the nitty gritty
Now one, two nitty gritty
Now yeah, mmm, nitty gritty now
Ooooowee, right down to the real nitty gritty
Ooooowee, can you feel it double beatin', I keep repeatin
Get right down to the real nitty gritty
Say it again double beatin'

We gotta get right down to the real nitty gritty
Let's get, let's get right on down to the real nitty gritty
It's all right, it's all right
Get on down, get on down

We gotta get right down to the real nitty gritty
Listen to me now

Oooowee, ooowee
Come on and let the good times roll
Let the music sink down into your soul
Double beatin', keep repeatin'

We gotta get right down to the really nitty gritty
Talkin' about the nitty gritty
Just get on down, get on down
Talkin' about the nitty gritty
Get on down, get on down

Shirley Ellis version was OK but Gladys Knight nailed the hell out of it
