It has been played live by most incarnations of the band at one point. According to an interview Trent Reznor did with Melody Maker magazine, "Get Down, Make Love" was supposed to be a "tongue-in-cheek" cover.

This is the only available version.

Live

"Get Down Make Love" has been performed live since the "Pretty Hate Machine" Promotional Tour. After the second chorus, the band typically rests, as Reznor will either sing the last line of the chorus solo, communicate with the audience, or both. He used this moment at the tour stop in Camden, NJ in 2006 to tell off someone for spitting on him.

Lyrics

    Get down, make love
    
    You take my body, I give you heat
    You say you're hungry, I give you meat
    I suck your mind, you blow my head
    Make love inside your bed
    
    Everybody get down, make love
    Get down, make love
    
    Every time I get hot you want to cool down
    Every time I get high you say you want to come down
    You say it's enough
    In fact it's too much
    Every time I want to get down
    Get down, make love
    
    I can squeeze, you can shake me
    I can feel when you break me
    Come on so heavy when you take me
    You make love, you make love, you make love, you make love
    You can make
    
    Everybody get down, make love
    Get down, make love
     
    Every time I get high you want to come down
    Every time I get hot you say you want to cool down
    You say it's enough
    In fact it's too much
    Every time I want to get down
    Get down, make love 

There is also an audio sample at the beginning of the song, from Roger Kay's 1962 film, The Cabinet Of Caligari (Link to dialogue - 0:21-0:42]):

    How old were you when you first let a man make love to you?
    Next who was he?
    Next, how did you feel at the time?
    Next, how did you feel afterwards?
    What did you feel, what did you think?
    Were you pleased, frightened, ecstatic, disgusted?
    What did he say? What words did you speak?
    That's what I want to know,
    Now, tell me, now, now, all of it, now, tell me, yes!
