Marvin Sease - "Sit Down On It"

My son's girlfriend looked at me in disbelief as she listened to the words of this great Marvin Sease record that I was playing.  It probably didn't help that I had the volume turned up and was dancing along with the music!  I mean, this is grown folks music and it's good stuff!  I guess "sit down on it and ride it like a pony" isn't exactly what you expect anybody's parent to say.  (smile)  "Sit Down On It" is one of my favorite Marvin Sease songs - and I have many.  You have to look beyond the lyrics and listen to the music - it's good and will make you move!  Speaking of the lyrics, though, I'm not real sure about the third line of the chorus.  My sister and I have gone 'round and 'round about the words we think we hear and now I think the lyrics I've written for that line are wrong and she's right!  And if he's saying what we think he's saying - uh oh - I won't repeat it!!! (smile)  I'd love to hear your comments!!!

By the way, this song is in response to Theodis Ealey's "Stand Up In It" - see my post dated 2/19/2012.

Come on, come on
Every time I turn my radio on
I hear this cute little song just trotting along
Giving out instructions how lovers should get it on
Now I must admit, it’s a cute little song
But don’t let the instructions lead you wrong
They say you ought to stand up in it
But if you really want to know the best way to get it

Let her sit down on it
Ride it like a pony
Boy let up on it
Long as she wants it
Let her sit down on it
Ride it like a pony
Boy let up on it, long as she wants it

Now my baby likes a pony ride
So I let her ride until she’s satisfied
Stand up in it, might be cool
But you don’t want to run out of juice before she gets through
When she sits down on it
You just play it cool
Let her have her way till she gets through


My baby likes a pony ride
Hi ho Silver, baby ride, ride, ride
Let her sit down on it
Ride it like a pony
Boy let up on it
Long as she wants it

Chorus (repeat)
Marvin has an unmistakable voice
  and I love him.
Hi ho Silver, baby ride ride ride
