Paroles "How You Gonna Keep It (After You Get It)" - Marvin Gaye

How you going to keep it after you get it?
I want to know, sugar darling, yeah
How you going to keep it after you get it?
Oh baby
Sweet thing

Now I think of games sometimes
But when it comes to this heart of mine
I don't miss a bus
If you ain't got the right stuff
So I'm laying it on the line
And it's something you'd best be mine
Don't fight the fire without the words to give it up

Oh how you going to keep it after you get it?
Oh tell me sugar, tell me sugar
How you going to keep it after you get it?
I want to know right now

Listen, your sweet talking sure sound good
And your kissing satisfied
And when you hold me in your arms
I get weak, I won't deny
But I'm not in for a one-night thrill
You've got to have enough love to pull us all over the hill

Oh how you going to keep it?
I want to know
How you going to keep it?
I want you to think, think about it baby
Stop and start yourself
Don't let your mind ruin your heart
Is what you're laying on me fake
Or have you really got what it takes?

Oh how you going to keep it?
I want to know
How you going to keep it?
If I let you be careful with my ship
How you going to keep it?
I want to know, will you be able to hold your grip?
How you going to keep it?
When hard times come, (tell me about it) honey, would you pack up your bags and run?
How you going to keep it?
Sweet thing now, how you going to keep it?
I want to know
How you going to keep it?
I want to know
How you going to keep it?
And I want to know
How you going to keep it?
