Let's Get Retarded Lyrics - Black Eyed Peas

Review The Song (20)



Let’s get retarded in here

And the bass keeps running, running
And running, running
And running, running
And running, running
And running, running
And running, running
And running, running
And running, running
And-

In this context there’s no disrespect
So when I bust my rhyme you break your necks
We got 5 minutes for us to disconnect
From all intellect and the let rhythm effect

To lose the inhibition, follow your intuition
Free your inner soul and break away from tradition
sponsored links
Cause when we beat out, girl it’s pulling without
You wouldn’t believe how we wil' shit out!
Burn it til it’s burned out
Turn it til it’s turned out
Actin' up from north ,west, east, south

Everybody! (Yeah?)
Everybody! (Yeah?)
Let's get into it! (Yeah!)
Get stupid(Come on!)
Get retarded! (Come on!)
Get retarded! (Yeah!)

Let’s get retarded in here!
Let’s get retarded ha!
Let’s get retarded in here!
Let’s get retarded ha!
Let’s get retarded in here!
Yea

Lose control of body and soul
Don’t move too fast people just take it slow
Don’t get ahead
Just jump into it
Y’all hear about it the Peas'll do it

Get started
Get stupid
Don’t worry about it people we’ll walk you through it
Step by step like an infant, new kid
Inch by inch with a new solution
Transmit hits with no delusion
The feeling’s irresistible and that’s how we move it

Everybody! (Yeah?)
Everybody! (Yeah?)
Let's get into it! (Yeah!)
Get stupid (Come on!)
Get retarded! (Come on!)
Get retarded! (Yeah!)

Let’s get ill that’s the deal
Out the gate, we will bring a punked Eye thrill (Just)
Lose your mind this is the time
Y'all can't sit still just to bang your spine (Just)
Bob your head, like Epilepsy
Up inside your club or in your Bentley
Get messy
Loud and sick
Your mind past normal on another head trip
So, come dumb now do not correct it

People are stupid | Reviewer: Wow so the the internet huh | 7/16/14

Bad Lyrics, bad discussion. I don't see how any people can get offended by BEP when bands like NOFX and Sublime are a thing, Tim Minchin wrote a beautiful love song about cancer so people, learn the difference between a simile and metaphor.
Also btw, Maggie Ryan, I would be more than happy to sing this song in front of you and whatever retarded kids/people you referred to. They would probably enjoy it.

# RETARDED | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/23/13

this is the original, INTENDED lyric. If you're butt-hurt, deal with it. If you wanna stop rappers from saying NIGGA, adress That! Take the good, with the bad! The 1st amendment encompasses lots of things that are unpalatable. That's the beauty of it.

What does retarded mean? | Reviewer: Joe | 6/30/13

Lets get retarded, high. ........ Lets get woo hoo. While I'm at it.... I am the walrus ( goo goo ga joob) not cuckoo ka chew. And sex and candy ( Jim jones lemonade) not disco lemonade.

Let's get retarded | Reviewer: Denis | 11/20/12

Cmon people,its not even offensive at all,they just sayin that they wanna do something crazy and have a great time...
there are no drugs or anything else mentioned in the lyric cos they dont need things like this to do someting crazy and funny with their friends...
great song btw,i love it,this is

A pinch of sarcasm! | Reviewer: I never knew that old people could use the internet. | 1/27/11

This song is so catchy! I LOVE IT!

And for those people who posted how offensive this song is, why don't you just listen to their song 'Lets get it started'?

WARNING : I hear that people are absolutely OUTRAGED about 'Lets get it started', because they were offended on how GETTING IT STARTED referred to sex and drugs! :O :O

Offensive or not | Reviewer: klepto | 1/24/11

Regardless of whether or not someone understands or is compassionate towards those with a mental disability, free speech should never be compromised because of any personal offense someone may or may not take. This is the kind of ignorance that gets books banned/burned and classic songs taken off the radio. The real world is a cruel place, no matter how you try to change the media there are ugly issues in this society you can never change by complaining, insulting others, or wishing illness on each other. If you were a caring parent of a RETARDED child, you should understand what that feels like, and should never wish that on another human being. So let's just lighten up here.

Stop making something out of nothing | Reviewer: Sandra | 1/12/11

Honestly? I think you guys are thinking too much about this. It's a lyric. What are you going to do next, go on and diss Sublime for songs like "Date Rape" and "Santeria"? [rape and abuse], "Crawling" from Linkin Park [PTSD], Seether's "Aids" [obvious] and more than a few other songs that could be named.

I mean, don't get me wrong. I don't intentionally go around and skewer my favorite songs' lyrics into something I can get all in a tissy about. But, come on. It's not like they dedicated an album to making fun of epilepsy. Grow a backbone.

And if you're going to pay attention to their lyrics, let's hit it from the top with "In this context there's no disrespect".

For Shame | Reviewer: maggie ryan | 1/11/11

I will try to wrap my head around the not offensive part. Hmmm I wonder if the people who are so STUPID to say this (yes I doubt their capacity for compassion and civility could say this in front of me when I babysit my severely handicapped grandson. So who's not so bright? I say it's Black Eyed Peas and anyone who defends these words. I would like to say I wish it was them that suffereed, or their kid that did, but I won't, although I'm tempted (can you tell?). I wished it was you who could never speak a word...but want to communicate with every ounce of your being. I wished it was you that had a crappy immune system and got every illness that passed through and got it 5 X worse than everyone else. I wished you never got to go to restaurants with your family. Or to say what made you bleed because we didn't see it at that exact moment. And who do we trust with our baby? So you get retarded and think those lyrics are cute and not hateful, but you will be so wrong. And I was just brave enough to write and tell you.

you'll believe anything | Reviewer: alex | 5/10/10

haha there is no direct reference to drugs in this song.. it's just like some of u correctly sed, forgetting all the bullshit for a few minutes, getting into the groove and enjoying urself. think fo yoselves dudes.

RETARD | Reviewer: Voosh | 10/27/09

I don't really get the bit about "ignant" and all those made-up words, like "Punked-eye"... you should listen more carefully! anyway, this lyric is quite accurate, but not as accurate as other sites ;)

Wrong | Reviewer: Lzo | 12/2/08

I'm really beginning to get frustrated with people who don't hear the lyrics right and end up putting something that doesn't even make sense! Don't anybody tell me that because it's music that that's an excuse... Here's an example from this song:

"Cause when we be out,the girl is wanna be down."

"the girl is wanna be down"?! That doesn't make any sense in the world of music or plain speech!!!

I listened to it and it sounds like "girlies pullin' weave out"

It not only makes sense but it really does sound like what Will.I.Am. is saying.

I love this song and so what if it's offensive? | Reviewer: VanillaGorilla | 12/6/07

This song was in Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle. No one bitches and moans about how the term crazy is used so here's one for you PCers to piss your pants over. Start bitching about how nutcases get an underhanded job when it comes to the media and not only will you get the stink eye you won't garner any ass either. If you want a cause defend the earth. Now shut up and enjoy the song.

blaBLABLA | Reviewer: YOU MAMMA | 10/25/07

you guys are hommoes get a fucken like you gay basterds before i hnt you down a sloughter you then skull fuck you in all dirsections i bet your the fucken retard you fucken basterd

The TRUE meaning... | Reviewer: Tekid | 9/24/07

This is quite a bit of a heart-felt song, mostly referring to b-boys (AKA breakdancers). They are NOT referring to drugs in this song. Being a somewhat novice breakdancer, I can honestly tell you that "Get Retarded" means to hit up a party or club, to have a good time, and get on the floor and bust some serious routine. Granted some people may think drugs are involved, and it really is a somewhat vague reference if you're not familiar with b-boy slang, but this is what the true reference is. The beat is even a basic 2-step beat, perfect for break.

I would TOTALLY sing along | Reviewer: Nigga McRetard | 7/25/07

Irony: When people get offended on behalf of those that lack the mental capacity to get offended. Hm. Actually, I think the retards are ahead on this one. Remember, free speech forever! Unless of course it may hypothetically offend someone, somewhere, someday. Then it's just wrong, and it's our duty to whine and complain until we get our way! Just like good little 12 year olds... er, I mean respectful, PC adults. Sometimes I forget the difference.
