Janet Jackson – Shoulda Known Better lyrics

[Verse 1]
A baby girl without a home
Tragedy's reign left her alone
I guess I shoulda known better
But she's a citizen of the world
A right to life her cry's unheard
I guess I shoulda known better
Why why why why

[Chrous]
Part of the revolution
Ready for real solutions
We won't accept excuses
We tolerate no abuses
Cause I don't want my face to be
That poster child for being naive
Why why why why
I guess I shoulda known better

[Verse 2]
Headlines are real or just the news
Between the lines there's human truth
I guess I shoulda known better
Each day I'm faced with irony but
Just can't feel casual about casualties no
I guess I shoulda known better
I guess I shoulda known better
Why why why why

[Chorus]
Part of the revolution
Ready for real solutions
We won't accept excuses
We tolerate no abuses
Cause I don't want my face to be
That poster child for being naive
Why why why why
I guess I shoulda known better

[Bridge]
It's never the critic that counts
Cause critics only wanna talk
While enlightened minds and open hearts
Together make this world a better place

[Verse 3]
Awakening a better choice
It only starts if you lift your voice
And say I shoulda known better
And so next time I'll know better
Why why why why

[Chrous]
Part of the revolution
Ready for real solutions
We won't accept excuses
We tolerate no abuses
Cause I don't want my face to be
That poster child for being naive
Why why why why
I guess I shoulda known better
Why why why why
I guess I shoulda known better

[Verse 4]
I had this great epiphany
And rhythm nation was the dream
I guess next time I'll know better
