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 »

No sense pretending it's over/Hard times just don't go away,
You've got to take that chip off your shoulder/It's time you open up, have some faith
Nothin' good ever comes easy/All good things come in due time (yes it does)/
You've gotta have something to believe in/I'm telling you to open your mind (hee-eee-eee)
Chorus: You've gotta put your heart on the line, if you want to make it right/
You've got to reach out and try. Gotta put your heart on the line, if you want to get it right/Gotta put it all on the line.
You see yourself in the mirror/And if you don't like what you see, no/And things aren't getting much clearer/
Don't you think it's time you go for a change, (oh oh)/Don't waste you time on the past (no no)/ It's time you look to the future (oh oh)/
It's all right there if you ask/This time if you try much harder/You'll be the best that you can be!(oh,ohhh oh)
If you want to make it right/And you want to do it now/Then you've got to learn to try/
And to make it work somehow/Don't a lot in life come free/And that's just the way it is now/
You've got to go for what you want/You've got to know it, You've got to live it (OH!)
[Chorus]. . .(On the line) (you and me) (whoo!) (whoo!) (you and me!)
(gotta put it all, gotta put it all) (whoo!) (Hee!)
