Lyrics

Bad
04:08
Your butt is mine
Gonna tell you right
Just show your face
In broad daylight
I'm telling you
On how I feel
Gonna hurt your mind
Don't shoot to kill
Come on

I'm giving you
On count of three
To show your stuff
Or let it be...
I'm telling you
Just watch your mouth
I know your game
What you're about

Well they say the sky's the limit
And to me that's really true
But my friend you have seen nothin'
Just wait 'til I get through...

Because I'm bad, I'm bad
You know I'm bad, I'm bad
You know I'm bad, I'm bad
And the whole world has to answer right now
Just to tell you once again who's bad...

The word is out
You're doin' wrong
Gonna lock you up
Before too long,
Your lyin' eyes
Gonna tell you right
So listen up
Don't make a fight,
Your talk is cheap
You're not a man
You're throwin' stones
To hide your hands

But they say the sky's the limit
And to me that's really true
And my friends you have seen nothin'
Just wait 'til I get through...

Because I'm bad, I'm bad
You know I'm bad, I'm bad
You know I'm bad, I'm bad
And the whole world has to answer right now
Just to tell you once again who's bad...

We can change the world tomorrow
This could be a better place
If you don't like what I'm sayin'
Then won't you slap my face...

Because I'm bad, I'm bad
You know I'm bad, I'm bad
You know I'm bad, I'm bad
And the whole world has to answer right now
Just to tell you once again who's bad...
The Way You Make Me Feel
04:58
Hey pretty baby with the high heels on
You give me fever
Like I've never, ever known
You're just a product of loveliness
I like the groove of your walk,
Your talk, your dress
I feel your fever
From miles around
I'll pick you up in my car
And we'll paint the town
Just kiss me baby
And tell me twice
That you're the one for me

The way you make me feel
You really turn me on
You knock me off of my feet
My lonely days are gone

I like this feelin' you're givin' me
Just hold me baby and I'm in ecstasy
Oh I'll be workin' from nine to five
To buy you things to keep you by my side
I never felt so in love before
Just promise baby, you'll love me forevermore
I swear I'm keepin' you satisfied
'Cause you're the one for me

The way you make me feel
You really turn me on
You knock me off of my feet
My lonely days are gone

I never felt so in love before
Promise baby, you'll love me forevermore
I swear I'm keepin' you satisfied
'Cause you're the one for me...

The way you make me feel
You really turn me on
You knock me off of my feet
My lonely days are gone

Ain't nobody's business, ain't nobody's business
Ain't nobody's business, ain't nobody's business but mine and my baby

Give it to me - give me some time
Come on be my girl - I wanna be with mine
Ain't nobody's business
Ain't nobody's business but mine and my baby's
Speed Demon
04:01
I'm headed for the border
It's on my mind
And nothin' really matters
I've got to be on time
Look in the view mirror
Is he hot on my tracks
Is he getting nearer
I feel some heat is on my back

(Speed demon)
Speedin' on the freeway
Gotta get a leadway
(Speed demon)
Doin' it on the highway
Gotta have it my way
(Speed demon)
Mind is like a compass
I'm stoppin' at nothin'
(Speed demon)
(He say) Pull over boy and get your ticket right...

And nothin' gonna stop me
Ain't no stop and go
I'm speedin' on the midway
I gotta really burn this road

(Speed demon)
Speedin' on the freeway
Gotta get a leadway
(Speed demon)
Doin' it on the highway
Gotta have it my way
(Speed demon)
Mind is like a compass
I'm stoppin' at nothin'
(Speed demon)
(He say) Just, pull over boy and get your ticket right...

Speed demon, you're the very same one
Who said the future's in your hands
The life you save could be your own
You're preachin' 'bout my life like you're the law
Gonna live each day and hour like
For me there's no tomorrow

(Speed demon)
Speedin' on the freeway
Gotta get a leadway
(Speed demon)
Got fire in my pocket
I just lit a rocket
(Speed demon)
(He say) Just, pull over boy and get your ticket right
(Speed demon)
(He say) Pull over boy and get your ticket right
(Speed demon)
(He say) Just, pull over boy and eat your ticket
(He say) Pull over boy
(He say) Pull over boy
And get your ticket right
Get your ticket right
Liberian Girl
03:54
Naku penda piya, naku taka piya, mpenziwe
(I love you too, I want you too, my love)

Liberian girl...
You came and you changed my world
A love so brand new
Liberian girl...
You came and you changed me girl
A feeling so true

Liberian girl
You know that you came
And you changed my world,
Just like in the movies,
With two lovers in a scene
And she says...
"Do you love me"
And he says so endlessly...
"I love you, Liberian girl"

Naku penda piya, naku taka piya, mpenziwe
(I love you too, I want you too, my love)

Liberian girl...
More precious than any pearl
Your love so complete
Liberian girl...
You kiss me then,
Ooh, the world
You do this to me

Liberian girl
You know that you came
And you changed my world,
Just like in the movies,
With two lovers in a scene
And she says,
"Do you love me"
And he says so endlessly
"I love you, Liberian girl"

Naku penda piya, naku taka piya, mpenziwe
(I love you too, I want you too, my love)

Liberian girl
You know that you came
And you changed my world,
I wait for the day,
When you have to say
"I do,"
And I'll smile and say it too,
And forever we'll be true
I love you, Liberian girl, all the time
Just Good Friends
04:08
(Michael:)
I watched you on the floor
Cheek to cheek
She's getting to you
You didn't see - her eyes on me
She looked right through you
Before you make
A big mistake
Remember
That looks can fool you babe, hee!

There's something I would sure appreciate
If you can keep a secret

Baby loves me
But she never shows she cares
No, you won't see her kiss and hug me
Baby loves me
No she acts like I'm not there
That doesn't mean she doesn't love me

If they ask her
Tell 'em that we're just good friends...
Just good friends...

(Stevie:)
You better take advice
Never trust first impressions
I tried to hide this affair
From their suspicions

So even if she's asking you to stay
You better know where you stand

Baby loves me
Though she never shows she cares
No, you won't see her kiss and hug me
My baby loves me
Though she acts like I'm not there
That doesn't mean she doesn't love me

Now if they ask you
Just tell 'em that we're just good friends...
Yes... Just good friends
Just good friends...

(Michael:)
Listen up... we've got a problem here
(Stevie:)
I can see the signs
(Michael:)
I guess the lady
(Both:)
Is still making up her mind
Say we're just good friends

(Stevie:)
Baby loves me
Though she never shows she cares
No you won't see her kiss and hug me
Just good friends
My baby loves me

(Michael:)
Though she acts like I'm not there
You doggone lover...
(Stevie:)
Don't you wanna know? My baby loves me
Though she never shows she cares

(Stevie:)
She doesn't kiss and hug me
Just good friends

(Michael:)
My baby loves me
She love me, she love me,
Never shows she cares
Another Part of Me
03:55
We're takin' over
We have the truth
This is the mission
To see it through
Don't point your finger
Not dangerous
This is our planet
You're one of us

We're sendin' out
A major love
And this is our
Message to you
(Message to you)
The planets are linin' up
We're bringin' brighter days
They're all in line
Waitin' for you
Can't you see...?
You're just another part of me...

A rather nation
Fulfill the truth
The final message
We're bring to you
There is no danger
Fulfill the truth
So come together
We're mean is you

We're sendin' out
A major love
And this is our
Message to you
The planets are linin' up
We're bringin' brighter days
They're all in line
Waitin' for you
Can't you see...?
You're just another part of me
Another part of me...

We're takin' over
This is the truth, baby
Another part of me
Man in the Mirror
05:20
I'm gonna make a change, for once in my life
It's gonna feel real good, gonna make a difference
Gonna make it right.

As I, turn up the collar on my favorite winter coat
This wind is blowin' my mind
I see the kids in the street, with not enough to eat
Who am I, to be blind? Pretending not to see their needs
A summer's disregard, a broken bottle top
And a one man's soul
They follow each other on the wind ya' know
'Cause they got nowhere to go
That's why I want you to know

I'm starting with the man in the mirror
I'm asking him to change his ways
And no message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself, and then make a change

I've been a victim of a selfish kind of love
It's time that I realize
That there are some with no home, not a nickel to loan
Could it be really me, pretending that they're not alone?

A willow deeply scarred, somebody's broken heart
And a washed-out dream
They follow the pattern of the wind, ya' see
Cause they got no place to be
That's why I'm starting with me

I'm starting with the man in the mirror
I'm asking him to change his ways
And no message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself and then make a change

I'm starting with the man in the mirror
I'm asking him to change his ways
And no message could've been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself and then make that...
Change!
I Just Can't Stop Loving You
04:13
I just want to lay next to you for awhile
You look so beautiful tonight
Your eyes are so lovely
Your mouth is so sweet
A lot of people misunderstand me
That's because they don't know me at all
I just want to touch you
And hold you
I need you
God I need you
I love you so much

[Michael]
Each time the wind blows
I hear your voice so
I call your name...
Whispers at morning
Our love is dawning
Heaven's glad you came...

You know how I feel
This thing can't go wrong
I'm so proud to say I love you
Your love's got me high
I long to get by
This time is forever
Love is the answer

[Siedah]
I hear your voice now
You are my choice now
The love you bring
Heaven's in my heart
At your call
I hear harps,
And angels sing

You know how I feel
This thing can't go wrong
I can't live my life without you

[Michael]
I just can't hold on

[Siedah]
I feel we belong

[Michael]
My life ain't worth living
If I can't be with you

[Both]
I just can't stop loving you
I just can't stop loving you
And if I stop...
Then tell me just what will I do

[Siedah]
'Cause I just can't stop loving you

[Michael]
At night when the stars shine
I pray in you I'll find
A love so true...

[Siedah]
When morning awakes me
Will you come and take me
I'll wait for you

[Michael]
You know how I feel
I won't stop until
I hear your voice saying "I do"

[Siedah]
"I do"
This thing can't go wrong

[Michael]
This feeling's so strong

[Siedah]
Well, my life ain't worth living

[Both]
If I can't be with you

I just can't stop loving you
I just can't stop loving you
And if I stop...
Then tell me, just what will I do

[Michael]
I just can't stop loving you

[Siedah]
We can change all the world tomorrow

[Michael]
We can sing songs of yesterday

[Siedah]
I can say, hey... farewell to sorrow

[Michael]
This is my life and I,

[Both]
Want to see you for always

I just can't stop loving you
I just can't stop loving you
And if I stop...
Then tell me, just what will I do
Dirty Diana
04:41
You'll never make me stay
So take your weight off of me
I know your every move
So won't you just let me be
I've been here times before
But I was too blind to see
That you seduce every man
This time you won't seduce me

She's saying that's ok
Hey baby do what you please
I have the stuff that you want
I am the thing that you need
She looked me deep in the eyes
She's touchin' me so to start
She says there's no turnin' back
She trapped me in her heart

Dirty Diana
Let me be!

She likes the boys in the band
She knows when they come to town
Every musician's fan after the curtain comes down
She waits at backstage doors
For those who have prestige
Who promise
Fortune and fame, a life that's so carefree
She's saying that's ok
Hey baby do what you want
I'll be your night lovin' thing
I'll be the freak you can taunt
And I don't care what you say
I want to go too far
I'll be your everything
If you make me a star

Dirty Diana

She said I have to go home
'Cause I'm real tired you see
But I hate sleepin' alone
Why don't you come with me
I said my baby's at home
She's probably worried tonight
I didn't call on the phone to
Say that I'm alright

Diana walked up to me,
She said I'm all yours tonight
At that I ran to the phone
Sayin' baby I'm alright
I said but unlock the door,
Because I forgot the key,
She said he's not coming back
Because he's sleeping with me

Dirty Diana

Come on!

Mouth to mouth resuscitation
Sounding heartbeats, intimidations

Okay, I want everybody to clear the area right now!

That he struck you, a crescendo Annie
He came into your apartment
Left the bloodstains on the carpet
Then you ran into the bedroom
You were struck down
It was your doom, Annie
