Jermaine Jackson - Let's Get Serious Lyrics

Close my eyes, and I see your face at night
Toss and turn, fall to sleep holding my pillow tight

All the time I think of you, you're with me no matter what I do

Walk around with a smile upon my face
In my mind, you have taken up permanent space

I am feeling what I can't explain, and if what you're feeling is the same

Let's get serious
Let's get serious
Let's get serious, and fall in love

Let's get serious
Let's get serious
Let's get serious, and fall in love

Baby let's get serious
Yeh, yeh, yeh, yeh, yeh, yeh, yeh, yeh, yeh, yeh

In your arms is the place I wanna be
With my love in you, and your love inside of me

Longing for each other just ain't fair
When we've got so much we wanna share

Let's get serious
Let's get serious
Let's get serious, and fall in love

Let's get serious
Let's get serious
Let's get serious, and fall in love

Let's get serious
Let's get serious
Let's get serious, and fall in love

Let's get serious
Let's get serious
Let's get serious, and fall in love

Both of us feel like exploding, 'cos this stuffs too hot for holding

Let's get serious and fall in love

Girl you've got my body moaning, just believe it's ment for cloning

Let's get serious and fall in love

Serious, (oh) serious
Let's get serious, and fall in love

Jermaine Jackson Let's Get Serious Comments
  1. Olia Haynes

    Came across this song and fell in love! Go Jermaine!

  2. Solomon Grant

    Jermaine and Micheal finally had top 10 hits in 1980 WITHOUT performing together

  3. Danielle Solomon

    Loved and love this song! Jermaine has some great solo songs!

  4. cool stuff 306

    This is a man who I believe could have made it without Michael.

  5. Marci Hill

    Yesss let’s get serious let serious before you love...

  6. Clyde R Taylor

    Jermaine Jackson is tearing the ass frame up out of that Bass. On let's get serious. 😆

  7. Laure Anctilpte

  8. chasefarris93

    Love it. Classic music


    Takes me back to my high school days in the spring of 1980.   "LET'S GET SERIOUS" was the serious jam!!!

  10. Ronald David


  11. keith whitcomb


  12. Timothy Dula

    That's my favorite jermaine Jackson song I couldn't stop playing this song

  13. Jan CW

    I keep waiting for the album to skip in the places it used to.

  14. Mo W

    This does have Stevie written all over it. They snapped . I get so sad bc we aren’t gonna get these days back. I wanted to become a really wealthy girl so that I could have a home built like the Brady bunch’s and to dress in 40-70’s fashion. everything would be dedicated to those days but the fed gov don’t pay me enough to have two houses lol

  15. darryl norman

    Yea yea yea yea yea yea yea yea yea yeaaaaaaahh

  16. 関裕一


  17. gregory hudson

  18. constance j morgan


  19. Cas82958

  20. 5.カメラマン

    Just, nice. :'3

  21. keith whitcomb


  22. John Scott

    Let’s not get serious and let’s not fall in love.

  23. Acehh21

    Still great

  24. Willie Seals III

    The album was co produced by Stevie Wonder .

    Damario Haynes

    Stevie is a bad ass indeed. His last name Wonder is very appropriate matching his musical genius. Very happy that he's still here with us.

  25. Samuel Pajoa

    Great Song!

  26. shyman99

    This badass groove gets this senior citizen out of his chair and out on the dance floor all over again.

    Damario Haynes

    That's right. Stevie is bad ass; when he comes in you can't deny that he's not the greatest.

  27. NAS Saeed

    Stevie wonder is on this track

  28. Rayvin D.

    1:39-1:55 was nice!!!

    Damario Haynes

    Stevie is a bad ass; dude ain't no joke musically. He's right to have Wonder as a last name.

  29. D TB

    JOE + Katherine Jackson made some beautiful children all 9

  30. Bianca Bulloch

    this is seriously good

  31. Garion Bush

    Still jamming

  32. Tee Money

    This is some good music. I am happy I got to enjoy it when it first came out. '68 baby!!!

    charles richardson

    U was 12
    I turn 12 that summer as well

  33. Vincent Kuneen

    I'm only here because of React-Native 0.59

  34. VJ.Splash

    This song is fun to sing.It is fun to play the bass on this song. It is damn DIFFICULT to sing and play all this at the same time! Jermaine was at this younger age a seasoned pro and did all this with ease when you see him play it on live videos. Finally, you know he was funky jamming with the likes of Mr. Stevie Wonder Yea yea yea, yea yea yea,yea yea yea YEEEEAAAAAAAA - AAAAOOOOO!!!

  35. King-RIOS-REAL Pro-Afrakan

    Germaine jackson you read the Qur'an and the bible it will tell you that God what inside of man. But that man was master fard Muhammad.and he came from Arabia as a white man, because if he came as a black man the people would have him killed. So he told Elijah that he was God in the flesh. So Elijah is the messenger of God not a prophet. Read the Qur'an and the bible and you will see the difference.the white man has tampered with the Qur'an. Read messeage to the black man , and the theology of time and you will see a big difference.

    Damario Haynes

    Read the old bibles; not the King James version. Read the Cepher bible; that's the real account of biblical history.

  36. thanddi

    You could dance yourself to the emergency room for real.

    Susan P

    LOL true

    conrad ford

    thanddi No doubt. Lol.

  37. Inteva

    You remember, Jermaine was the last member of the Jackson 5 to leave Motown.


    Too bad his dad in law did not pour more into him.

  38. Sirlesa Bryant

    I 1st heard this when I lived in Evanston Illinois. I played the heck out of this song. Lets Get Serious 💯

    Also, you're*

    So who is the idiot now?

  72. Rj1s

    Better than Michael......

  73. Jay Brown

    Stevie came through in the chorus like...

    Damario Haynes

    He's a bad ass and undeniable all around musician.

  74. Andrew Martin

    Pure Groove 🎸

  75. David Battle

    This song is pretty damn good


    At this time in Jermaine's life. They should've invested more time in writing hits and bringing him along making his style of music. Instead of trying to make him be like his brother Michael. And that was a huge mistake. Because there is/was only one Michael Jackson. And no one can copy or imitate him. Not even his own family. Still. God Bless Jermaine though.😃

  77. MissTee TL

    Good times. 1980, Jermaine had song his brothers had a couple also that year.
