"Why You Wanna Trip On Me" PDF Print E-mail
(track by Michael Jackson, from the album "Dangerous")


They say I'm different.
They don't understand.
But there's a bigger problem
That's much more in demand.
You got world hunger,
Not enough to eat.
So there's really no time
To be trippin' on me

You got school teachers
Who don't wanna teach.
You got grown people
Who can't write or read.
You got strange diseases,
But there's no cure.
You got many doctors
That aren't so sure,
So tell me

[Chorus]

Why you wanna trip on me?
Why you wanna trip on me?
Stop trippin'!

We've got more problems
Than we'll ever need.
You got gang violence
And bloodshed on the street.
You got homeless people
With no food to eat,
With no clothes on their back
And no shoes for their feet.

We've got drug addiction
In the minds of the weak.
We've got so much corruption,
Police brutality.
We've got streetwalkers
Walkin' in the darkness.
Tell me
What are we doing
To try to stop this?

[Chorus]

Why you wanna trip on me?
Why you wanna trip on me?
Why you wanna trip on me?
Why you wanna trip on me?
Stop trippin'!
Yeah, stop trippin'!
Everybody, just stop trippin'!

[Repeat chorus]
