Poor Michael, poor Michael
Poor Michael, poor Michael

He says he didn't know, he didn't mean to
He says he didn't know, he didn't want to
He says he didn't know, he didn't mean to
He held his head in his hands

Poor Michael, all alone
Lost in the steamy jungle
Lost in the hands of God
American in paradise
No need to fear the land
Forest forever twilight
Only now he's lost the sight

He says he didn't know, he didn't mean to
He says he didn't know, he didn't want to
He says he didn't know, he didn't mean to
He held his head in his hands

Poor Michael, warm winds blow
Paradise times forever
Now he knows

He says he didn't know, he didn't mean to
He says he didn't know, he didn't want to
He says he didn't know, he didn't mean to
He held his head in his hands
