The Lyrics

Was watching the News everywhere on Michael Jackson, and some fans dont seem to believe he's passed away. And I got to thinking this song would drive the message home.
Melodic Line
Burial Site
To the Furnace
Religious Rite
Put in a Hearse
Automobile
I’ll think you’ll find
Those pills do kill
Come on
Come on
TMZ was all right

Shimon to you
Dead as can be
Was not that old
Got to fifty
I cannot do
No more moonwalk
Smooth criminal
My fans in shock

Cos today they found out something
And to me that’s really true
A few more days I’m really hoping
The message will get through

Because I’m dead, I’m dead-come on
(dead dead-really, really dead)
You know I’m dead, I’m dead-you know it
(dead dead-really, really dead)
You know I’m dead, I’m dead-come on, you know
(dead dead-really, really dead)
And the whole world has to answer right now
Just to tell you once again,
Whos dead . . .

The word is out
Religious song
It’ll knock you out
Come sing along
Everyone dies
And he did last night
Big funeral
In his own right
What was the cause?
Its quite a fright
Was it his mask?
On way too tight


Like my song I had to beat it
And to me thats really true
And you all have seen everything
No more moonwalk for you

Because Im dead, Im dead-come on
(dead dead-really, really dead)
You know Im dead, Im dead-you know it
(dead dead-really, really dead)
You know Im dead, Im dead-you know it, you know
(dead dead-really, really dead)
And the whole world has to answer right now
(and the whole world has to answer right now)
Just to tell you once again,
(just to tell you once again)
Who’s dead . . .

I’ll be on the news tomorrow
And in every other place
But the papers have one good thing
I’m not on the sports page

Because Im dead, Im dead-come on
(dead dead-really, really dead)
You know Im dead, Im dead-you know it
(dead dead-really, really dead)
You know Im dead, Im dead-you know it, you know
(dead dead-really, really dead)

Woo! woo! woo!
(and the whole world has to answer right now just to tell you once again . . .)

You know Im dead, Im dead-come on
(dead dead-really, really dead)
You know Im dead, Im dead-you know it-you know it
(dead dead-really, really dead)
You know, you know, you
Know, come on
(dead dead-really, really dead)
And the whole world has to
Answer right now
(and the whole world has to
Answer right now)
Just to tell you
(just to tell you once again)

You know Im smooth, Im dead, you know it
(dead dead-really, really dead)
You know Im dead, Im dead baby
(dead dead-really, really dead)
You know, you know, you
Know it, come on
(dead dead-really, really dead)
And the whole world has to
Answer right now
(and the whole world has to
Answer right now)
Woo!
(just to tell you once again)

You know Im dead, Im dead-you know it
(dead dead-really, really dead)
You know Im dead-you know-hoo!
(dead dead-really, really dead)
You know Im dead-Im dead-you know it, you know
(dead dead-really, really dead)
And the whole world has to answer right now
(and the whole world has to answer right now)
Just to tell you once again . . .
(just to tell you once again . . .)
Whos dead?

I love Michael Jackson and support him. He is still the king of pop. And I don't mean as in soda.

R.I.P. Michael Jackson! He's gone forever :( Now he'll never moonwalk again! I dressed in black, in spite of the hot weather, for the past few days mourning for his death! I miss him terribly! Great parody you wrote! Even sad songs have to have a little humour once in awhile. I pay my respects with 5's!

Thanks to everyone who made a comment. Mark Scotti: LOL he could make a comeback maybe this is a stunt for more PR to his concert ?. Cody Slusher: Yes MJ will always have that title one of the top 5 best selling artist ever. Christie Marie M: Glad you can see the funny side to a bad thing like MJ's death thanks for the 5's.
