When I was young I used to turn up the bass and
Rock out to Billie Jean and Thriller in my basement
When Michael Jackson was a pop sensation
Every second song on the radio station
Remember Axle telling us to have patience
And records sold without any affiliation
When William hung and music still had no relation
Someone tell Janet bring back the rhythm nation.

No gloves, no zipper coats
No more yellow submarines or kokomos
If we could ask Luther Vandross
I bet he'd wonder the same
Can ya tell me what happened to Michael Jackson?
And MTV trading music for acting?
Avril Lavigne's on the cover of Maxim
Woah oh oh oh

And there's a million other people with a lot on their mind
But for me I'm not the type to let a good thing die
If we could bring the beatles back to rock it one more time
We could turn this mess around, one beat at a time.

When I was young I used to turn up my headphones
And flip through the pages of the Ro-oh-lling Stone
Used to turn it up to 10 on my drive home
With Mick Jagger singin "It's only rock n' roll"ќ

No gloves, no zipper coats
Just rock stars eating their filet mignon
Where did Van Halen put guitar solos
I bet they'd wonder the same

Can ya tell me what happened to Michael Jackson?
And MTV trading music for acting?
Avril Lavigne's on the cover of Maxim
Woah oh oh oh

Can ya tell me what happened to Michael Jackson
And bands reuniting just to get a reaction
Britney should have never covered satisfaction
No no oh oh oh

And there's a million other people with a lot on their mind
But for me I'm not the type to let a good thing die
If we could bring the beatles back to rock it one more time
We could turn this mess around, one beat at a time.

You're killin' me softly with this whole
Mirage. And replace the music with
Hydraulic cars, I'll trade my first favorite
Old fashion guitar, If we could retrace the
Steps we've made so far

Can ya tell me what happened to Michael Jackson?
And MTV trading music for acting?
Avril Lavigne's on the cover of Maxim
Woah oh oh oh(x2)

Can ya tell me what happened to Michael Jackson
And bands reuniting just to get a reaction
Britney should have never covered satisfaction
No no oh oh oh

    This song is a simple message about how good music is being replaced bby some other things. about 20-30 years ago music was the main sensation, but now it is almost gone bcoz of many other things that people do for fun.

    Great song by a music lover!
