The Lyrics

Okay, I forgot how long this song was until I started it, and I missed out the rap because I couldnt be asked with it ;) Still, some effort went into this, so go easy!
I know you want to
Be just like him
But you're not the same thing
See, he's a genius,
And you're a kid
Leave it to the King, give up your game

You can dance and you can sing, for sure
But just remember
That if you start being yourself then they'll like you more
So just remember


Who's gon' tell you, you're not Michael Jackson
Cos he's better than you, there's just no question
You ain't him and he ain't you
And we can tell the difference when you're dancing

Stop being a phoney
Get your own moves, homie
I'm so sick of the same thing
People think that they can slate him
Jealous, so they're hatin'
And you have the nerve to mimick him?
I mean honestly,

Do you think it ain't been done before?
Cos that's just not true
It's time for you to move on and just let it go
He's better than you

So I'll say it again

I think you know that you're not Michael Jackson
But I'll say it again, to give me satisfaction
He'd sing circles around you
And don't you get me started on your dancing

See, I know you can dance, but not like him
And I know you can sing, but not like him

Maybe, one night, you'll tighten your game
(Gotta tighten up your game, yeah yeah yeah)
Maybe, one night, you'll tighten your game
(Gotta tighten up your game)


You're good, except you're not Michael Jackson
(Can't do it like he do)
So try accept that you're a different person
(And think of something new)
That could work wonders for you
Try that out, you could be something special

If you want the rap parodied as well, just let me know and I'll give it a go :) -H
