The Lyrics

He made it on the music scene before age thirteen
The Jackson 5 had featured him as their star
Stepped up the mic, what a great sound
MJ was born a star… Near and far all his hits can be found

On this sad day in June he’s found deceased
And tears we released
Depressed, He’s dead it’s like a bad dream
He was fifty years old
Hard to glance at the news report now

This man had great talent at least that much is true
All of his songs made the Billboard charts (Eeee-Heee!)
His “Thriller” album sold huge, it places number one
And “Dangerous” was too, to “Black or White” we’re glued
Hey! Hey! Hey!

Rest In Peace dear Michael Jackson
You were called a freak but who am I to judge?
You invented the moonwalk
By some you were mocked
You’re still in all our hearts
(Boohoohoo!!! Boohoohoo!!!)

Your life was strange, the tabloids did write
Since you left your bride
Your old Neverland Ranch got way out of hand
A circus grandstand
Accused of loving boys by newshounds
That was your wacky life…
Elvis’s daughter was your wife
(Had a wife?! Had a wife?!)

You wrote “We Are The World” with Lionel Richie
Just for charity
You’re not a weirdo- that you’ve denied
Had no “Jesus Juice” wine
Sound like Prince, dress the same… We are wowed!

The “King Of Pop” was awesome no matter what you say
Though you used surgery to rearrange some parts (Had plastic parts)
Your nose turned into debris
You dangled babies from the roof
While you might have been a goof
You agreed to Weird Al’s spoof
(Fat! Eat It!)

Michael Jackson is now in Heaven
He was a guy who gave our lives so much fun
But now his time is done
Rest In Peace dear Michael Jackson
You were the singer with awards by the ton
By critics you weren’t shunned
You were second to none
Now you’re dead, we are all stunned


You know Bubbles will sob
And you once were a heartthrob
Rest In Peace dear Michael Jackson
Wacko Jacko’s a name that you had got
Since some guys think that you’re odd
You’ve had a gift from God
You rocked with all your songs
We will miss you since you’re gone
(Famous as a kid)
June’s the end, you’ve moved on
(Dearly departed)
Our hearts you’ve won
Rest In Peace dear Michael Jackson
Rest In Peace dear Michael Jackson
Rest In Peace dear Michael Jackson
Rest In Peace dear Michael Jackson
Rest In Peace dear Michael Jackson

"Stepped up to THE mic, what a great sound" it should have said... I was writing this one pretty late.

R.I.P. Michael Jackson! He will be missed! Great tribute you wrote for the King of Pop! I remembered around 10 years ago, we used to make cracks about Michael, but we didn't mean anything bad about it, really. Michael Jackson is my longtime idol starting when I was a toddler. The first song I heard was "Don't Stop Till You Get Enough". But "Billie Jean" is one of my fave MJ songs and I have many others as well. I give my condolences with 5's. He'll always be in our prayers!

A beautiful and fitting tribute to MJ. He had allegations of being a sexual predator and some other weird stuff, but overall he is a legend to everyone who grew up listening to his songs. God Bless him and his family.
