I had listened to this song for years without actually ‘getting it’; the penny finally dropped recently! :-)

‘Stir it Up’ is probably one of Bob Marley’s most sensual songs. The inspiration seems to have been his initial attraction to Rita Marley. The sensuality does not become obvious until one really takes time notice the lyrics:

“…I'll push the wood (stir it, stir it, stir it together),
Then I blaze ya fire;.
Then I'll satisfy your heart's desire. (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
Said, I stir it every (stir it, stir it, stir it together),
Every minute:
All you got to do, baby, (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
Is keep it in, eh!”

It’s also a song of longing, desire, pursuit and conquest:

“It's been a long, long time, yeah!
(stir it, stir it, stir it together)
Since I got you on my mind. (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh) Oh-oh!
Now you are here (stir it, stir it, stir it together), I said,
It's so clear
There's so much we could do, baby, (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
Just me and you”

“Quench me when I'm thirsty;
Come on and cool me down, baby, when I'm hot. (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
Your recipe is, - darlin' - is so tasty,
When you show and stir your pot. (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)…”

The Base Guitar continues a gentle ‘dum, dum dum dum in the background with the lyrics and a bluesy guitar riff doing their own thing, it could easily be a song about ‘cooking’! Oh, but there is an awful lot of double entendre woven into the song, enough to make one blush when you think of it.

Wonderful song, listen to it, listen especially to the lyrics, Rita must have been one hell of a cook :-)
