Michael Jackson

Michael Joseph Jackson (August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009) was an American recording artist, entertainer and businessman. Often referred to as the King of Pop, or by his initials MJ, Jackson is recognized as the most successful entertainer of all time by Guinness World Records. His contributions to music, dance, and fashion, along with a much-publicized personal life, made him a global figure in popular culture for over four decades. The eighth child of the Jackson family, he debuted on the professional music scene along with his brothers as a member of The Jackson 5 in 1964, and began his solo career in 1971. more »

I took my baby on a river boat cruise
And she was well aware
I was excited about the way things could have been
Cause in it I don't care
I want a face no one can recognize, in disguise
Someone called out my name
They thought of taking pictures, autographs, then they grab
My joy has turned to pain

Father always told me
You won't live a quiet life
If you're reaching for fortune and fame
I feel the pressure setting in, I'm living just to win
I'm down in my pain, don't you feel it?
It's the price of fame, you pay the price of fame
So don't be feelin' no pain! 
It's the price of fame, it's the price of fame
So don't you ever complain! 

I'm on, the cover of the magazine, what a scene
They know my every do's
"Just sign your name on the dotted line, you'll be fine" ? 
That always bothers me
Get in your car, you wanna take a ride, look behind
Someone is following you
You try to get away you turn real fast, but too bad
They know your every move! 

My father always told me
You won't live a quiet life
If you're reaching for fortune and fame
I feel the pressure setting in, I'm living just to win
I bleed all this pain, don't you ever complain! 

It's the price of fame, you pay the price of fame
So don't you ever complain! 
It's the price of fame, you pay the price for fame
So don't be feelin' no pain! 

It's the price of fame, you pay the price of fame! 
Father never lies, my father never lies
My father never lies
So don't be feelin' this way boy! 

I'd like to take some time and get away, then they'll say
Is that boy still alive?
The week in village what a thrill
Only the strong survive

My father always told me
You won't live a quiet life
They startin' to wonderin' where have you been?
I feel their envious looks at me
Their mistaken jealousy
Then stand here in my shoes
And then get a taste of my blues! 

It's the price of fame
You pay the price of fame, so don't you ever complain! 
It's the price of fame
You pay the price of fame
So don't be feelin' this way! 
It's the price of fame
You pay the price of fame, so don't you ever complain! 

It's the price of fame, you pay the price of fame! 
Father never lies, my father never lies baby
My father never lies
So don't be feelin' no pain boy!
