Lyrically, the song explicitly talks about sexual desire, sexual tension and sexual arousal, as well as verbal direction of things to do during sexual intercourse.

Critical ReceptionEdit

Upon its release, "#GetItRight" received generally favorable reviews from music critics, who appreciated its overall production. Mariah Eakin from The A.V. Club complimented its placement on Bangerz, describing the song as "perfectly appropriate for an early-twentysomething, albeit one who has no problem with nudity." Nick Catucci of Entertainment Weekly opined that the track is "every bit as immodest as you'd expect from a young lady who recently spawned a craze for swinging unattired on public pendulums", and further commented that it "solved the riddle [of] what the grinning naked women in Robin Thicke's 'Blurred Lines' video were thinking". Writing for Slant Magazine, Kyle Fowler appreciated "#GetItRight" for being a "sexy slice of pop-funk whose lyrics boast a raunchy but refreshing display of female sexual agency". Mark Jacobs from V described the track as "a sure Top 40 diamond with a whistling hook and clever sweetness that partially obscures the frank sexual nature of its lyrics."

However, Heather Phares from AllMusic gave a more mixed review of "#GetItRight", suggesting that it is "so bouncy it almost sounds innocent despite Miley's insistence that she wants to be naughty." Evan Sawdey felt that the song was "catchy but flat", while Jessica Hopper of Spin though that Cyrus came across as "powerless and horny"

LyricsEdit

[Verse 1]
I feel a surge coming over me
I feel it all around my thighs
And chills going up my legs
This is the worst coming out of me
When I came, felt like I could die
And it sends chills up my spine

[Pre-Chorus]
You're sexy, sexy
I got things I want to do to you
Make me, make me
Make my tongue just go do-do-do
Flex it, flex it
Flex your muscles, and through the roof
Arrest it -rest it, cause you're a criminal

[Chorus]
I been laying in this bed all night long
Don't you think it's time to get it on?
But we gotta get it right, we can't get it wrong
Don't you want to feel this fire before it's gone, yeah?

[Verse 2]
I feel the thirst pouring out of me
The things that I wanna try
That echoes in my head
This is the first time I get to see
Things I've never seen in my life, yeah
You make flowers grow under my bed, yeah

[Pre-Chorus]
You're sexy, sexy
I got things I want to do to you
Make me, make me
Make my tongue just go do-do-do
Flex it, flex it
Flex your muscles, and through the roof
Arrest it -rest it, cause you're a criminal

[Chorus]
I been laying in this bed all night long
Don't you think it's time to get it on?
But we gotta get it right, we can't get it wrong
Don't you want to feel this fire before it's gone, yeah?

[Spoken Interlude]'
Do you feel me? Oh! I thought so. I just uh... sometime you just wanna... be naughty!

[Bridge]
Feel so alone when you are gone
Feeling right back home when I'm in your arms
You played my strings, like my guitar
When I look in your eyes, I see all the stars

[Verse 3]
Would you believe
I'm dancing in the mirror
I feel like I got no panties on
I wish that I could feel you
So hurry, hang up that damn phone

[Chorus]
I been laying in this bed all night long
Don't you think it's time to get it on?
But we gotta get it right, we can't get it wrong
Don't you want to feel this fire before it's gone, yeah?

[Outro]
Going on and on and make it last forever
What you want all day
Just as long as it's you and I together
Babe don't make me wait, yeah
