Weekly Song Lyrics: Michael Jackson

Lyrics by Culturecide, crudely placed over Rockwell’s “Somebody’s Watching Me.”

I’m just an average man, but I’ve got a dream
I work from 9 to 5, but only temporarily
All I want is to be left alone, but I’m never lonely
I don’t need anyone but Michael & me.

Michael Jackson, Michael Jackson
I wanna be like Michael Jackson

When I come home at night, I lock the door real tight
I play Michael’s albums again and again
Dancing in the mirror, I look a lot like him
I’m not really sure I’m afraid to be myself
‘Cause I open up my eyes and realize I don’t exist
People say I’m OK, thank you very much
But myself always reminds me of nothing too much, that’s why

I wanna be like Michael Jackson
I wanna be like Michael Jackson; tell me is it just a dream?

I wanna be like you. I wanna be like you.
Michael, Michael, Michael, Michael, Michael, Michael

Michael appears amidst smoke and fire
A luminous figure, he comes to me with his beautiful smile
With his glittering glove he removes the mysterious shades
And he’s gazing at me with the eyes of a god.
Michael Jackson! Michael Jackson!
I wanna be like Michael Jackson!

It’s actually quite amazing that this was able to sneak into the record stores back in the eighties, even with the explosion of the underground that forced every conscientious record store (read: independent and college-town record stores) to expand their selection beyond what was to become the “Big Six Record Companies” (now I think the big three and those bankrupt remains). After all, this was worse than pure piracy. This was mockery, and of a way that could never be allowed by the record companies and original artists.
