To get the party started. Often yelled loudly and with a stutter. Ironically, this is often said when the party is over and everyone is hammered. Can also be used as an excuse to drink a beer at 9 a.m.

In all you do, be the best, go the hardest, and get done whatever you set your mind too!

If your cooking.. Get it going, make the best of the best

If you are drinking.. Have the best memorable time

If you are singing.. Be the best you can be

If you are hanging with friends.. Make it the best time

Basically "get it going" "getting it going" means there is no room for negative, judge mental situations. Just do you and do it the best you can! Have FUN in ALL you Do!

Anna lost her job and her boyfriend dumped her for her best friend. She carried on. When the going gets tough the tough gets going. Three monthes later she was in a better job and going out with a really nice guy.
