Get Up Offa That Thing" is a song written and performed by James Brown. It was released in 1976 as a two-part single (the B-side, titled "Release the Pressure", is a continuation of the same song). It reached on the R&B chart, briefly returning Brown to the Top Ten after a year's absence, and on the Billboard Hot 100. Thanks to its chart success, the song became Brown's biggest hit of the late 1970s.

Get up off a that thing And dance until you feel better Get up off a that thing And dance until you, sing it now! Get up off a that thing And dance until you feel better Get up off a that thing And try to release that pressure! Get up off a that thing And shake until you feel better Get up off a that thing And shake it, say it now! Get up off a that thing And shake until you feel better Get up off a that thing And try to release that pressure! Get up off! Ha! . In his 1986 autobiography James Brown: The Godfather of Soul (page 245), James says of the song’s inspiration: The audience was sitting down, trying to do a sophisticated thing, listening to funk. One of the tightest bands they’d ever heard in their lives, and they were sitting. I had worked hard and dehydrated myself and was feeling depressed. I looked out at all those people sitting there, and because I was depressed they looked depressed.

It was one of Brown's biggest hits in the second half of the 1970s, reaching on the R&B chart, and became a staple of his later live performances. The song's lyrics urge the listener to "Get up offa that thing, and dance 'til you feel better.

But he was still coming up with some captivating funk grooves, and his late '70s output should not be ignored. Although 1976's Get Up Offa That Thing falls short of essential, it's a focused, rewarding LP that has a lot going for it. The title song, a sweaty funk gem, became a hit, and almost as appealing are "I Refuse to Lose" and "Can't Take It With Yo. These tracks follow the funk principle that Brown perfected in the 1960s: find an addictive groove and work it to death.
