(track by Michael Jackson, from the album "Dangerous", released on October 11, 1991)

I took my baby
On a saturday bang,
’Boy, is that girl with you?’
Yes, we’re one and the same.

Now, I believe in miracles,
And a miracle
Has happened tonight.

[Chorus]

But, if
You’re thinkin’
About my baby
It don’t matter if you’re
Black or white.

They print my message
In the Saturday Sun,
I had to tell them
I ain’t second to none

And I told about equality,
And it’s true
Either you’re wrong
Or you’re right.

But, if
You’re thinkin’
About my baby
It don’t matter if you’re
Black or white.
[Bridge]

I am tired of this devil!
I am tired of this stuff!
I am tired of this business
Sew when the
Going gets rough!
I ain’t scared of
Your brother!
I ain’t scared of no sheets!
I ain’t scared of nobody,
Girl, when the
Goin’ gets mean.

(l. t. b. rap performance)

Protection
For gangs, clubs
And nations
Causing grief in
Human relations.
It’s a turf war
On a global scale.
I’d rather hear both sides
Of the tale.
See, it’s not about races,
Just places,
Faces,
Where your blood
Comes from.
Is where your space is
I’ve seen the bright
Get duller,
I’m not going to spend
My life being a color.

Don’t tell me you agree with me,
When I saw you kicking dirt in my eye.

But, if
You’re thinkin’ about my baby,
It don’t matter if you’re black or white.

I said if
You’re thinkin’ of
Being my baby,
It don’t matter if you’re black or white.

I said, if
You’re thinkin’ of
Being my brother,
It don’t matter if you’re
Black or white.
