The Lyrics

hey jacko.. give it up already
saw the jackson five
(was he white before)
can't believe my eyes
(was he white before)
Michael it's a sin,
you can't change your skin,
people askin' was he white before??

all a pack of lies
(was he white before)
brother in disguise
(was he white before)
what is that I see?
on that balcony?
people askin was he white before?

Non white is the way that I remember this guy
vitiligo, so he says, but how'd that make him white?

what a poor disguise
(was he white before)
did you keep your "size"?
(was he white before)
why the new veneer?
and the mask? that's queer
people askin was he white before?

Non white is the way that I remember this guy
vitiligo, so he says, but how'd that make him white?


all a pack of lies
(was he white before)
brother in disguise
(was he white before)
what is that I see?
on that balcony?
people askin was he white before?

Great job Malcolm, loved the 'size' line!

There was a parody, I think on "In Living Color," in which the Jacko impersonator asked, "Am I black or white?" Then he trashed the car, and a cop says, "You're under arrest." And the faux Jackaux says, "Oh, I guess I really am black."

I´m writing about Vitiligo in school right now and Wacko Jacko´s name turns up all over the place when I search for information. So, contemplating how much fun we´ve made of Michael here at Amiright, I decidid to see if there was any parody about it, but this seems to be the only parody that uses the word. So, once again Malcolm, you´re ahead of the rest of us. :-)

PS. He probably DOES have it. What I´ve learned so far is that it is easier, and not uncommon, to be "cured" by bleaching the unaffected areas, than try to repigment those affected. With personal variations of course, but this problem, at various levels, seems to be more common than I hade any idea of. Cheers. **Returns to boring but serious working at school**
