The Lyrics

Michael was a man of mys'try
They called him the King of Pop
Yeah, I'm talkin' 'bout Jackson
Hit the heights, then made a drop,
That's Michael Jackson,
His talent could astound..
Goodbye Michael Jackson
Neverland, you're bound..

The world remembers Jackson,
Always seemed to wreck his health
Glove on his hand, high pitched talkin' man
He made trouble for himself,
Sleep, Michael Jackson,
No child is there..
So long, to you, Michael Jackson,
Empty's your chair

When he'd breeze into a city
Fans would cheer and clap and bow
Married twice, but did not work out
Fathered children, not sure how
Tributes to Jackson,
Thousands are rollin' in
Farewell, Michael Jackson
Sometimes a star of sin

On a balcony, once dangled
His infant son, Michael II
The world asked why, Michael Jackson,
Such a risky thing to do..
That's Michael Jackson
His talent could astound
Farewell, goodbye, Michael Jackson
Real Neverland, you're bound

What'll happen to his children?
Will they be returned to Debbie Rowe?
Or will custody fights..drag on days and nights
Only time will tell where they will go..
Gone's Michael Jackson
Quick as he began..
Close your eyes, Michael Jackson
No more the troubled man

Close your eyes, Michael Jackson
No more the troubled man..

It seems that we're all paying our respects to this fine and completely out of his friggen gourd artist today. He was an incredible artist while at the same time a complete loony, and you painted that picture here in your parody.

R.I.P. Michael Jackson! He will be missed! Great tribute you wrote for the King of Pop! I remembered how me, my bro, and my friends would make jokes about him, now I wished that I could take it all back. He will always be in our prayers.

Great work...I loved him...and really think he was a literal genius. many geniuses do go a little crazy in the end...but his talent was not to be denied.

He didn't know his own limitations and spent enough money to raise the national debt.

Fun little pokes, while over all a tribute AFW, 555, I think my opinion on this has been well established. . .RIP . . .

Don't think I'd have been able to write one like this... seriously good.

Didn't see this till just now. Same OS and same topic as my latest effort. I'm relieved to find we did totally different things with the lines, and our versions complement each other nicely. I find yours is more directly biographical, mine more impressionistic. Don't feel obliged to be kind to mine, just say what you think if you can be bothered. In this case, rather than scratch each other's backs, I'll abstain from voting and expect you to do the same.
