The Lyrics

From July 8, 2009 to February 24, 2010, Michael Jackson is scheduled to perform 50 sell out concerts to over one million people, at London's O2 arena.... YIKES!!!!!!
You lost your mind, comeback's not right
Your face will melt, in full sunlight
Your money's gone, and looks don't delight
Fans bailed out at the speed of light

Moron, moron, moron retreat, tonight

Your zippers rust, no kids to break
Eccentric ways, too much to take
Your moonwalk soon, will bring you down
Unless it takes, you out of town
Well, little kids were your sweet tooth
And not proven, but who knows
It's your alien behavior
That overrides your prose

You're comeback's sad, it's sad, move on
(Sad, sad, really really sad)
We know you’re mad, and sad, please quit it
(Sad, sad, really really sad)
Your comeback's sad; it's sad, done long ago
(Sad, sad, really really sad)
And they'll think you're freaky, geeky gross out
Perform once more and they will say you're mad

Old songs are done, and new ones fail
Plead to fans, but to no avail
You've scraped your skin, its no longer tan
Your wax figure looks more like a man
If you scrape one more, layer of your skin
Just bone is there, a joker’s grin

And though Thriller may have sold much
Your sales have slowed to snail
If you grab your crotch once more
You'll land again in jail

Because you're mad, and sad, moron
(Sad, sad, really really sad)
We know you're mad, and sad, don't blow it
(Sad, sad, really really sad)
The comeback's sad, you're mad, don't know it, please go
(Sad, sad, really really sad)
Scraped flesh has cloned the Jackson 25
Even that crowd says again you're sad

If we see you play’ in our way
Better give our kids some Mace
Turn the lights off at the concert
They won't see your boney face

Because you're mad, and sad, moron
(Sad, sad, really really sad)
We know you're mad, and sad, don't blow it
(Sad, sad, really really sad)
The comeback's sad, you're mad, don't know it, please go
(Sad, sad, really really sad)
And the whole world knows you're sad won't be proud
To tell you once again you're sad....

Bashing MJ never seems to get old. This is one of the few songs were varying choruses probably wouldn't add much, it is kinda Sad. . MJ's music was among my favorites as a kid, now it's all tarnished by his very 'eccentric' lifestyle. . .good parody, 5s

Thanks, Dave!!!

Amen to that, Mark! What a freak. a good skewering of an "it" that makes a regular circus look "normal". I can never understand how "Thriller" sold over forty? million copies to this day...But again, I do like Vincent Price's laugh on the end of the title track. That's about it, though LOL.

Really excellent, Mark... 'Bubbles' with poignant truths! Many great lines but my fav: "t's your alien behavior That overrides your prose"
Christie Marie M - April 10, 2009 - Report this comment
I listened to both versions of MJ's and Weird Al's songs and both sounded great while reading/singing your parody. I was an MJ fan when I was a kid and enjoyed them. Anyways. it's all good, Mark! Keep it up! 555.

I was a big fan of his when he was at the height of his career - too bad he looks like an old woman now. By the way, I saw Prince on the Tonight show and he is better than ever and yet he was hot at the same time as MJ.

Thanks to TJ, Christie Alvin. To 2Eagle, thanks and you are absolutely right, Prince is still great! I've seen him perform twice, and he is an incredible tallent!!

"Your zippers rust," ... LOL! Fives right there.

psst... if ya want the cool copyright sign, type either & # 169 (without the spaces in between), then a space and your date/name etc., or else & copy; also without the space in between "&" and "copy;", then a space and your info. Might as well look like the accomplished pro that you are :)

btw, isn't his skin color actually the result of some disease or freak genetic thing? thought i'd heard that somewhere. doesn't account for his brain, though :-)
Mark Scotti - April 10, 2009 - Report this comment
Thanks, Tom. I'll try that next time with the copy. About the skin thing, that may be true, but I used the line to point out how many plastic surgeries he must have had. It's really a shame because he was great in his day...
TT - April 11, 2009 - Report this comment
My bad. I misread the skin things as being about the paleness vs. the surg's. Parody is even funnier now, but they won't let me vote any higher :-(

Agree on the shame... if you read the bio stuff about the abusive childhood, sorta feel sorry for the guy... what a waste of talent. Nice job.

I think the fact that we're all parodying old MJ songs instead of his new ones kinda says it all his chances for a big comeback...

Heck if the drugged out white trash bimbo named Britney Spears can make a comeback and create some great songs like "Womanizer" and "Circus" I think the Prince of Pop shouldn't have any trouble doing the same thing. Of course Britney can clean up nicely while Micheal... He's kind of a helpless trainwreck isn't he. This was a great take on this story!

I was just at Madame Tussaud's the other day so that "Your wax figure looks more like a man" line really stood out for me. Best line in a really good parody; nice job Mark.

Perfect idea and title swap. Bravo !!!
It is "sad" because the early stuff (circa Quincy Jones) is such great stuff.
"moonwalk...out of town" made me chuckle
Arwen - May 31, 2009 - Report this comment
SOTM...Michael Jackson is definitely one of life's greatest mysteries, and I'm more than certain that he's mentally unstable. Now. That having been said, I can't agree that the old songs are done. Regardless of how nuts he is now, his "old" stuff is too classic not to love, and you would have been hard pressed to find a better entertainer than Michael when he was in his prime. Everything through the "Bad" album rocked my sequined socks off...(even though I was only 11 when it was released)...and I still sing along when I hear his good stuff today.

I heard he's breaking out a new dance move that he says will blow everyone away. Hope he doesn't mean that literally!
Glen S - May 31, 2009 - Report this comment
'You know it's Sad', great idea. I enjoyed the whole thing, but the refrain stood out for me, with excellent use of the 'moron' and 'move on'. Too bad he's got no place to go.

I always felt sorry for MJ; I think he was a sweet guy with a lot of major issues. But this was really well-written, with a lot of great lines. I too was a bit incredulous when I heard he was doing 50 shows in London last spring. Wonder how that would have gone...

While it may seem like this parody is in bad taste now back in April nobody knew that in just 2 months the King of Pop would be dead. It was all so sudden how our responses went from "What kind of crazy sh*t is Michael going to do next?" to "Oh my gosh! Michael's dead! That guy was a saint!". I guess we're fickle when it comes to fame. Anyways, This parody was really good and funny.

Thanks, Matthias. You're right. Who knew, back then...just seemed like another wacko jacko thing to do...

See above. . .I don't know Matty--it overall is a good parody, but I don't think that we are all fickle. His 80s and early 90s stuff defined music, and practically invented the music video, then he got weird. The only complaint I have here is it focuses too much on the child stuff, which as the parody states was never proven--but moreover, some of that was kinda ewwww (His sweet tooth. . .ewwww) but all and all this is a pretty decent parody.

(Artistry) Still a pretty good parody, even in light of what happened...just feels more than a little bit uncomfortable. Not the fault of the parody of course, although I stand by what I said that it felt a bit too mean even when the man was alive. Not sure what else to say, everyone else pretty much has it covered.

(Artistry) Nice job with rhyming and pacing. You certainly pushed the envelope more than I'm willing to do these days, now that I've mellowed in my old age. All you're missing in this one is a line about Elizabeth Taylor :-)
