The Jackson 5

The Jackson 5 (also spelled The Jackson Five, sometimes stylized The Jackson 5ive), later known as The Jacksons, or simply Jacksons, are an American popular music family group from Gary, Indiana. Founding group members Jackie Jackson, Tito Jackson, Jermaine Jackson, Marlon Jackson and Michael Jackson formed the group after performing in an early incarnation called The Jackson Brothers, which originally consisted of a trio of the three older brothers. Active from 1964 to 1990, the Jacksons played from a repertoire of R&B, soul, pop and (in the 1970s) disco. During their six-and-a-half-year Motown tenure, The Jackson 5 was one of the biggest pop-music acts of the 1970s, and the band served as the launching pad for the solo careers of their lead singers Jerm… more »

People all over the world
Are the same everywhere I go
I give in to this, I give in to that
Every day it bothers me so

Am I in a bad situation?
People take me to the extreme
Am I being used? I just need a clue
I don't know which way to go

So I took my problems to a doctor
So he can check it out, he don't know
Took it to a palm reader
So she can read my hand, she don't know

Five minutes later I started to understand
And I started screamin' and shoutin' and acting mad
No one can help me but myself
But I gave everything

It's the things I do for you
In return do the same for me
It's the things I do for you
In return do the same for me

Always wanting something for nothing
Especially what they don't deserve
Reaching in my pocket, I just got to stop it
Though they got a lot of nerve

Am I in a bad situation?
People take me to the extreme
They don't use rejection
So I need protection to keep my equity

So I took my problems to a doctor
So he can check it out, he don't know
I took it to a palm reader
So she can read my hand, she don't know

Five minutes later I started to understand
And I started screamin' and shoutin' and actin' mad
No one can help me but myself
But I gave everything I had

It's the things I do for you
In return do the same for me
It's the things I do for you
In return do the same for me

It's the things I do for you
In return do the same for me
It's the things I do for you
In return do the same for me

It's the things I do for you
In return do the same for me
It's the things I do for you
In return do the same for me
